Cisco IP Alliance Formed, Based on Open Source OS

Cisco and a group of leading tech companies have formed an industry alliance that promotes the Internet Protocol (IP) for interconnecting millions of embedded devices such as thermometers and light switches, forming an “Internet of Things”. Many OSNews readers should be familiar with the technical basis of the alliance: embedded open source developer Adam Dunkels’ lightweight uIP TCP/IP stack from the Contiki operating system. Nice to see that open source OSes besides Linux and BSD also have a major impact on the technology industry.
