Global home networking standards group UPnP Forum is demonstrating UPnP+ capabilities, using sensor management control over a cloud network to show how UPnP can integrate devices into the Internet of Things.

The UPnP Forum has created a strategy around using new and existing UPnP device control protocols and UPnP Cloud architecture to provide protocols specifically for Internet of Things applications.

UPnP core technology provides a base for IoT, creating bridges to both wide-area networks and non-IP devices. The Forum has already produced DCPs for lights, thermostats, automatic blinds and security cameras and is now developing support for new IoT devices, specifically those with constrained resources.

A UPnP+ demonstration is planned as part of the Content Everywhere hub demo presentations at 11:30am on Sunday 14 September.
