Qualcomm Extending AllJoyn Software Framework To Drive Interoperability For Internet Of Everything





BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. (QuIC), will extend the AllJoyn™ software development project with new core interoperable services to enable richer experiences for consumers. These new services will be available on devices with different operating systems and from different vendors.

The AllJoyn framework will include new services designed to address fundamental use cases to enable a truly useful Internet of Everything. Today, the AllJoyn SDK provides the core building blocks developers need to address discoverability, connectivity, security and management of dynamic, ad-hoc networks between nearby devices. With the addition of these planned AllJoyn services, manufacturers and developers will be able to utilize higher-level components that implement some of the most common use cases. QuIC expects to release fully functional versions of these core services under an open source license on AllJoyn.org and such services will include:

  • Onboarding – a 'headless' or other simpler smart device can easily be configured via an intermediary, such as a smartphone application, for use onto a user's personal network
  • Notifications – enabling a standard way for devices to broadcast and receive text, image and multimedia notifications
  • Audio Streaming – facilitating an interoperable, open, wireless audio streaming protocol that allows users to stream their music across products from any manufacturer
  • Control – allowing for devices to export their control interfaces, including rich graphical elements associated with them

These new core services will be upstreamed into the AllJoyn open source project by May 2013. It is expected that many Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. platforms and products will include integrated support for these services as well.

"A useful Internet of Everything will emerge when connected products, applications and consumer services can interact via a common communications protocol," said Rob Chandhok, president of QuIC.  "We are driving toward this vision by adding new core services intended for very broad application but deliberately designed to be simple and basic so that they can be adapted to as-yet unforeseen future requirements. The opportunities for proximal networking in the home and automotive environments are a clear place to start; over time, and with the engagement of the open source community and manufacturers, we hope to extend AllJoyn such that any product with a processor can be made more useful to individuals and enterprises through simple connection and interaction with other devices, regardless of vendor or operating system."

The audio streaming and notification services will be demonstrated in the Qualcomm booth (Hall 3, Booth #3864) at Mobile World Congress from Feb. 25-28 in Barcelona. The audio streaming demo is via an Android multimedia player application from doubleTwist Corporation and will be showcased with the recently introduced Qualcomm Skifta Audio Module.
