New Broadband Protocol Turns Routers into IoT Gateways – 2018-12-04 – Page 1 – RFID Journal
Applications built in compliance with the USP standard could range from lighting and home security to sensor management, using an ISP’s router as the gateway to such solutions. Greenwave claims it is the first technology company to provide a USP-based solution. The firm also helped to develop the standard with the Broadband Forum, based on its own solutions, says Tim Spets, Greenwave Systems’ senior IoT systems and standards architect. The goal, he explains, is to extend communication beyond simply the router, to a network of sensors or devices that can communicate wirelessly within a home or other building.
