The ULE Alliance, a non-profit organization focused on driving the worldwide adoption of the ULE (Ultra Low Energy), a new generation wireless technology for IoT, is pleased to announce a formal liaison with the Open Interconnect Consortium, Inc. (OIC). For the first time ever, these organizations will present a combined technology demonstration at 2016 International CES in Las Vegas, USA (January 6-9).
"ULE is a new generation wireless technology for IoT, delivering unique performance benefits", says Avi Barel, Business Development Director of the ULE Alliance. "Two projects together with the OIC are envisioned: porting IoTivity application layer to ULE, which enables devices to run IoTivity over ULE, and working together to define a bridge, which will connect existing ULE and IoTivity networks."
“With this active liaison, the Open Interconnect Consortium and the ULE Alliance are taking an important step toward broadening the adoption of IoT," said Mike Richmond, Executive Director, Open Interconnect Consortium. "Interoperability and cooperation between standards organizations is of paramount importance in enabling practical implementations of IoT. OIC promotes IoTivity, a transport-agnostic application layer. Its goal is to make devices built on different technologies to communicate seamlessly."
The ULE Alliance and the Open Interconnect Consortium will present at the CES 2016 a demonstration showing devices of both technologies working together: ULE Alliance, Sands Expo, SmartHomes Tech Zone, booth 70527, and OIC Hospitality Suite, Hotel Palazzo.
