Microsoft Is Implementing AllJoyn Into Windows 10 To Support IoT


At the AllSeen Alliance Summit today, Microsoft announced that they will be implementing AllJoyn into Windows 10. Also, Windows Insiders will get a chance to develop against in-box Windows AllJoyn bits. Microsoft engineering team is contributing its proposed changes to the software framework back into the AllJoyn open source project. Microsoft Open Technologies is in charge of making sure these changes are also implemented, working and tested on other platforms, including Linux, Android, iOS, OS X, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, ensuring interoperability of these changes.

AllJoyn is an open source software framework and set of services to enable interoperability among connected devices to create dynamic proximal networks. AllJoyn is developed by the AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry collaboration to advance the Internet of Things comprised of 80 members and growing. Microsoft joined the AllSeen alliance in July, joining the long list of key industry players such as Sony, LG, Qualcomm, Panasonic, Sharp, Cisco, Haier and many others to address a major challenge facing IoT, collaborating on a universal software framework, based on AllJoyn open source code, which allows devices to autonomously discover and interact with nearby products regardless of their underlying proprietary technology or communications protocols.
