A universal language for the Internet of Things (IoT) is about to be unveiled by the zigbee alliance at Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas, NV.
Most IoT devices don't speak the same language even if they use the same wireless technology. The result is an IoT that is often a patchwork of translations, adding complexity for developers and limiting users to single-vendor systems. The solution lies in a common language -- dotdot -- between all IoT devices on any network, which will provide developers a common platform to innovate.
With dotdot as the universal language for the IoT, smart objects can work together on any network. The open, mature technology is supported by the zigbee alliance's 400+ global membership and a diverse supply chain.
