Latest News: UPnP Cloud UpdateThe 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.
