ZigBee Alliance welcomes 38 new members
Thirty-eight new members have joined The ZigBee Alliance since the beginning of 2016. The alliance is a group of companies focused on creating, maintaining and delivering open, global standards for the low-power wireless Internet of Things.
“These 38 organizations represent an international movement to bring the Internet of Things forward on a universal scale that’s not hindered by country borders, brands or language,” said Tobin Richardson, president and CEO, ZigBee Alliance. “Our members are focused, producing results, and ZigBee 3.0 is generating explosive interest as we rally the industry around the goal of meaningful IoT interoperability via a consolidated approach to the market.”
The 38 new member companies represent 15 countries, and join more than 425 existing members. From Canada, Sinopé Technologies Inc. and Stelpro have joined. Also among the new members are Johnson Controls, Linx Technologies and Nortek.
“The flurry in membership activity we’ve experienced in just the past four months since announcing ZigBee 3.0, plus the recent acquisitions of Daintree by Current (by GE) and GreenPeak by Qorvo, indicate the industry’s large-scale investment in ZigBee technologies for next-generation IoT products,” said John E. Osborne II, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance board.
