Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document defines the device for IOT Management and Control, which identifies Level 1 of the device named IOT Management and Control. This Publicly Available Specification is applicable to Standardized DCPs of the UPnP Forum which include this device.
This device definition is compliant with the UPnP Device Architecture version 1.0 . It defines a device type referred to herein as IOT Management and Control device.
This specification defines a general-purpose device that can be used to instantiate a bridge or gateway device that is connected to Sensors and Actuators. This device implements a bridge between the UPnP network and Sensors/Actuators endpoints. It exposes services to check the status, and send and receive data from Sensors. Sensors/Actuators may be connected using a variety of transport protocols including Bluetooth, ZigBee and IEEE 11073.
The device defined herein provides the following capabilities:
1. Access and control of multiple Sensors and Actuators.
2. Expose configuration information from Sensors and Actuators.
