IoT Standards Groups

July 21, 2014

Apparently there are now 3 standards bodies for the Internet of Things, AllSeen Alliance, Open Interconnect Consortium, and Thread Group. The only folks talking about protocol is Thread Group. That’s where the magic is. AllSeen is the most useful today because they offer AllJoyn out of the box but nowhere do they specify the protocol. For a standard to take off, you should define the protocol, and offer a reference implementation. That way other folks can implement their own version. Security Now has a little more info.
