Geoff Mulligan, IPSO Alliance Executive Director
The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects Alliance focuses on how devices can communicate with each other.
The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance formed with the goal of using IP to connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The organization came about as an outgrowth of my work on ZigBee and low-power wireless access networking. I believed that IP could and should be applied to even the smallest devices, well before IoT rose to prominence.
