AllJoyn connected home standard adds supporters

The AllSeen Alliance, an Internet of Things (IoT) open-source project, has announced that ControlBEAM, Fortune Techgroup, FreeWings Technologies, Grid2Home, Legrand Group, MachineShop and Vedams are the group’s newest members.

Since its formation in December 2013, the AllSeen Alliance has brought together 58 organisations to collaborate on an open software framework, based on AllJoyn open source code, to connect devices and services regardless of brand, transport layer, platform or operating system. The goal is to enable multiscreen business models for stakeholders, including pay-TV and connected home providers.

AllSeen Alliance members are located across the world and represent diverse market segments including consumer electronics manufacturers, home appliance makers, automotive companies, IoT cloud providers, enterprise technology companies, innovative start-ups, chipset manufacturers, service providers, retailers and software developers.

The new members are diverse: ControlBEAM provides a unifying open source platform to create and distribute apps for controlling products and automating business, retail and home; Fortune Techgroup is a service provider and semiconductor technology supplier in China; FreeWings Technologies provides research and development as well as design for next generation wireless communications; Grid2Home provides software solutions for the IoT market; Legrand Group specialises in electrical and digital building infrastructures; MachineShop provides enterprises and device OEMS with the technology to service-enable their businesses through hundreds of discrete, managed APIs that simplify IoT integrations; and Vedams specialises in storage engineering and test services.

“It’s great to see such intense interest in the AllSeen Alliance’s work, with companies all around the world coming together to foster an open ecosystem in which a wide range of devices, objects and systems can connect and share information in a simple, transparent way,” said Joe Speed, director of IoT at the Linux Foundation. “Nearly 60 members joining in seven months is amazing progress.”
