UPnP Forum

About UPnP Forum℠

Formed in October 1999, UPnP Forum is an industry initiative of more than 1040 leading companies in computing, printing and networking; consumer electronics; home appliances, automation, control and security; and mobile products.

The Forum’s goals are to allow devices to connect seamlessly and to simplify network implementation in the home and corporate environments. Toward this end, UPnP Forum members work together to define and publish UPnP device control protocols built upon open, Internet-based communication standards.

A member-based Steering Committee provides Forum leadership and business direction, while several technical working committees identify and define UPnP services, device controls and protocols and usage scenarios.
