Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
The Eclipse Foundation, the host of the Eclipse M2M Working Group, is pleased to welcome three new companies as members of the working group. 2lemetry, Bitreactive, and M2M Alliance have all joined the working group to participate in building a collaborative M2M and IoT community. These companies join existing members Aexeda, Eurotech, ibh Consulting, IBM, and Sierra Wireless.
The Eclipse M2M Working Group is a collaboration among organizations to create open source software that will become the building blocks for the M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) industry. The current technology used in the M2M and IoT industry is often closed and proprietary, making it difficult to create solutions that easily integrate and interoperate. The working group’s objective is to build a set of frameworks, protocol implementations, and tools to help developers quickly build IoT and M2M applications. All members of the working group currently build commercial products, services, and solutions for the M2M and IoT industry.
The new members include these companies.
The Eclipse M2M community includes 11 different open source projects. The technology created in these projects is freely available for individual and commercial use under the Eclipse Public License (EPL). Individuals and companies are invited to use the technology and contribute to the ongoing development. Organizations are also invited to join the Eclipse M2M Working Group.
Eclipse M2M is a special theme at the upcoming EclipseCon conference, March 17-20, 2014 in San Francisco. An entire day will be devoted to sessions and discussions on the Eclipse M2M projects. The Eclipse Foundation is also hosting an MQTT Interoperability Testing Day on March 17 at the same location.
More information about Eclipse M2M are available at m2m.eclipse.org.
