UPnP+ Certification is now available. Read here for more details.
For Training and Resources on UPnP+ implementation please see below.
- Full integration of IPv6 with seamless backwards compatibility to IPv4
- Improved interoperability baseline incorporating the latest specifications, including AV, Device Protection, and Energy Management
- Discovery of cloud services and content as well as secure sharing of devices across the Internet
- Data-based definition of new devices
- Expandable protocol bridging using REST based methodologies
- Features that drive UPnP devices to the core of the Internet of Things
- Enabling Social Media interactions
The UPnP+ certification program uses new and existing UPnP device control protocols (DCPs) and UPnP architecture enhancements to provide UPnP protocols focused on delivering new technical capabilities enhancing functionality and increase customer satisfaction in today’s ever-changing market of always-on connectivity. UPnP+ technology is an evolution of previous UPnP capabilities that will assist devices trying to integrate new paradigms like mobile connected computing, cloud-based service delivery, smartphone content sharing, and the Internet of Things.
Key areas UPnP+ addresses include:
- Evolving standards (HTML5, IPv6, etc.)
- Cloud-based features
- New services
UPnP+ supports a wide range of functions, ensuring future connectivity and makes new services possible, in areas such as health and fitness, energy management, security and sustainability. UPnP+ allows devices from different manufacturers to work together seamlessly, based on a single underlying technology, which is backwards-compatible with existing products and easy to deploy.
UPnP Device Architecture
The UPnP Device Architecture V2.0 (UDA 2.0) is the basis for UPnP+ certification enhancing the UPnP experiences towards the cloud and in a secure way. The UDA 2.0 is backwards compatible with UDA 1.x devices, enables additional features including IPv6, cloud based sharing, event subscriptions to individual state variables, and includes a number of clarifications. Access the UDA 2.0 here.
