What is AllJoyn? - Philip DesAutels, Linux Foundation , Sr. Director of IoT, AllSeen Alliance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The AllSeen Alliance was formed in Dec. 2013 to overcome the interoperability and fragmentation challenges that impede the Internet of Things. Today, the Alliance unites over 170 industry leaders to advance an open source software project, AllJoyn, and enable billions of devices to seamlessly connect and interact regardless of brand or manufacturer. But where does AllJoyn fit in with the other protocols available on the market? And where do standards and open source intersect? AllSeen’s senior director of IoT, Philip DesAutels will explore common misconceptions about this rapidly changing industry and how standards, open source software and like-minded initiatives can work together to achieve a common goal - interoperability for IoT.
The AllJoyn open source software framework makes it easy for devices and apps to discover and communicate with one another securely regardless of brand, transport, platform or operating system. With the addition of the Gateway Agent, AllJoyn gives consumers, service providers and device OEMs a secure and easy way to connect to and manage AllJoyn-enabled devices and applications from external networks or cloud-based services.
With millions of connected devices on the market - a number that is growing exponentially - it is more important than ever that consumers have control over these devices and their data. The AllJoyn Gateway Agent is the industry’s first standard way to connect IoT devices and applications without compromising security or privacy.
