IPSO Alliance Publishes Smart Objects Guideline – Starter Pack 1.0

Colorado Springs, CO – September 30, 2014—The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance has published its Smart Objects Guideline – Starter Pack 1.0.  The Smart Objects Starter Pack (SOSP) 1.0 provides a basis for interoperability across devices connected to the IoT through an open common object model. This open standards based data design is crucial for the wide scale deployment and success of IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications.

In its role as the leader in the use of Internet Protocol (IP) across the IoT, IPSO has been working to promote the use of open standards and explain the benefits of an IP based end-to-end IoT. With this publication, IPSO is moving from “Why use IP” to “How to use IP”.  Geoff Mulligan, IPSO Chairman, explains, “This document is the first in a series that will serve as a guide to developers, product designers and anyone choosing between closed proprietary systems and open standards based solutions.  These guidelines will help innovators more easily use IP in Smart Objects for new application domains and help facilitate growth in the IoT.”

The Alliance is now working on IoT architecture guidelines that will bring together the knowledge of IPSO members from across industries including Smart Energy, Smart Cities, Healthcare, Home Automation, Process Control and Building Automation. These documents will provide a guide to understanding how various open standards can be combined to build a secure, interoperable, extensible and maintainable IoT and M2M communications stack.

“Much like the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) stack brought growth to the Internet, a standards based IoT Architecture and Stack design will bring growth, understanding and stability to the IoT”, Antonio J. Jara, IEEE ComSoc IoT ETC and HOP Ubiquitous CEO, stated.

To contribute to the development of future technical guidelines, join IPSO Alliance today.  Members receive exclusive access to the IPSO think tank and are instrumental in driving the direction for the IoT. For more information, visit

About The IPSO Alliance

The IPSO Alliance was formed in 2008 to promote the use of IP in Smart Objects. The IPSO Smart Object Committee formed in 2011 to provide guidance on how to use IP and other standards to enable interoperability between IP-connected devices and IoT applications.
