SAN JOSE, Calif. — A trade group plans to publish a specification for building an Internet of Things software stack using the Internet Protocol. The effort is part of a growing trend toward implementing IP in embedded systems.
The IP for Smart Objects Alliance (IPSO Alliance) will publish at least one reference architecture this year for an IP-based IoT stack. It will also release a basic set of smart object data types for IoT communications over a variety of higher-level transports, including HTTP, CoAP, MQTT, and DDS.
“IPSO is transforming itself from a group focused on educating people why to [educating them on] how to use IP, so we're helping identify a proper set of standards for IoT,” Geoff Mulligan, the group's chairman, told EE Times.
