Linux Foundation forms AllSeen Alliance to advance the Internet of Everything

The Linux Foundation, together with industry heavyweights, has announced the formation of the AllSeen Alliance.

The main objective of the alliance, which draws membership from across the technology spectrum, is to “advance adoption and innovation in the “Internet of Everything” in homes and industry.”

Haier, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Sharp, Silicon Image and TP-LINK join Linux Foundation as Premier-level members of the alliance. Canary, Cisco, D-Link, doubleTwist, Fon, Harman, HTC, Letv, LIFX, Lite-on, Moxtreme, Musaic, Sears Brand Management Corporation, Sproutling, The Sprosty Network, Weaved and Wilocity fill up the rank of Community membership.

According to the official announcement:

The Internet of Everything is based on the idea that devices, objects and systems can be connected in simple, transparent ways to enable seamless sharing of information and coordinated and intelligent operations across all of them. As no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the Internet of Everything and address everyday, real-life scenarios, a united, pan-industry effort is needed to deliver new experiences to consumers and businesses.

The Internet of Everything, or the Internet of Things, needs a software framework to make it go. Otherwise those “connected” devices will only be talking to internal components. To that end, Qualcomm Connected Experiences, Inc. (QCE), a subsidiary of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has donated its Open Source AllJoyn software connectivity and services framework.
