Scott Lofgren of the uPnP forum joined us at TPN CES live broadcast. Of course, the Universal Plug and Play forum is meant for those networking devices together.
Today, any sensor can utilize uPnp. Whether computer, TV, auto, or wearable technology, uPnp is in a position to help make these items talk with each other through your mobile device.
“I think it’s a very unique time for uPnP where we can grow and ease the pain for others that are trying to come up with their own solutions,” stated Lofgren.
A study a couple years ago stated we are connecting 2 devices to the internet. With wearable technology and home automation, uPnP is looking to create a standard platform so all devices connect with each other.
Working with multiple companies, you will see DLNA come into your home.
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a way to connect your devices together so they talk and work. More important, the non-technical family can have technology without worrying about setting it up. It will be smart enough to do that for you.
DLNA also announced an iPhone / iPod application. Smart Store Fusion stream will let you upload and download content. You can also control the devices if needed.
Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Intel, Microsoft and more are part of DLNA.
