UPnP Cloud Update: The UPnP Forum has chosen an architecture for its cloud extension and is in the process of finalizing the specification with a goal of having a certification program in the 1H of 2014. Cloud support in the UPnP architecture will enable IoT and internet-wide usage by allowing IP-based devices and servers to discover each other and communicate independent of the network they are connected with. This new feature will leverage the widely deployed Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) for the cloud component while maintaining backwards compatibility with the existing UDA for local connectivity. This choice provides a low-risk, cloud-scalable, secure and rapid implementation path. It is anticipated that this powerful combination will be beneficial to both the UPnP and XMPP developer communities.

New UPnP Multi-Screen Working Committee: The UPnP Multi-Screen Working Committee was formed on November 14th 2013. The Multi-Screen WC is defining DCPs (device control protocols) which enable various time-sensitive and interactive services including implementation-specific applications among various display devices. The Multi-Screen DCPs will cover the Device/Service Discovery, Description, Eventing and Notification on the UPnP Device Architecture as the basic framework. More concretely, the Multi-Screen WC is designing two types of device, i.e. Main Screen Device and Companion Screen Device, and some fundamental services, i.e. Bi-directional Application Management, Association, Synchronization, Security/Authentication and so on. The Multi-Screen WC is targeting to finalize the “Phase 1” draft in the first quarter of 2014 and publish it in the first half of 2014.

    Wonder what changes you’ll see in 2014 across the telecom industry? Read UPnP Forum’s predictions for the year ahead:
    “As technologies like LTE extend high-speed pipes to anyone, anywhere, anytime, consumers will create and devour ever more content. As it already has for billions of devices, UPnP (and now UPnP+) will serve as the underlying infrastructure for content sharing—at home and in the cloud—by whomever, wherever, whenever.”
