Company: Coversant, Inc.
Currently I'm employed as EVP Sales, Marketing, Strategy at Coversant, Inc. Coversant Inc.'s XMPP based product Soapbox, an Internet of Things Service Bus (IoT-SB), connects disparate systems and devices, across platforms, in real-time, enabling the marriage of the “Internet of Things” and Big Data on the most scalable solution available.
The purpose of this standard is to provide session initiation and protocol transport for sensors, actuators, and devices. The standard addresses issues of security, scalability, and interoperability. This standard can provide significant cost savings and reduce complexity, leveraging current instrumentation and devices used in industry.This standard defines a method for transporting IEEE 1451 messages over a network using eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) to establish session initiation, secure communication, and characteristic identification between networked client and server devices using device Meta identification information based on the IEEE 1451 Transducer Electronic Data Sheets (TEDS).Standardizing XMPP as the protocol for sensors, actuators, controllers for IoT
UPnP IoT Task Force
The Internet of Things (IOT) Task Force operates under the Technical Committee and was formed to leverage existing UPnP specifications and the new UPnP Cloud Architecture to provide a complete and open standards-based, solution for developers creating applications for the Internet of Things.
Why I'm applying
My specific focus within XSF is for XMPP-IoT. I strongly believe that XMPP is "The Protocol" for Gateway to Cloud connectivity of IoT. I am a member of WG's in International standards bodies and alliances in which I am promoting the protocol for use.
