ULE Alliance and Open Interconnect Consortium Present a Joint Technology Demo at 2016 International CES

Reading time ( words)

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.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
