About AllJoyn™

In the Internet of Everything, AllJoyn Enables the "Internet of Things Near You"

AllJoyn is an open source project, initially developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc., and hosted by the AllSeen Alliance, which provides a universal software framework and core set of system services that enable interoperability among connected products and software applications across manufacturers to create dynamic proximal networks. Manufactures can offer interoperable products and services that will engage and delight users in new, exciting and useful ways. The range of consumer products AllJoyn can enable is only limited by the imaginations of innovative companies - from the mobile devices consumers always have with them, to the appliances and media equipment in their homes, to the electronics in their cars and the office equipment in their workplaces.
