Presentation Transcript

  1. UPnP Forum State of the Union Salim AbiEzzi Chairman, Steering Committee Microsoft Corporation

  2. Mission Improve quality of life and create business opportunities by enabling new networked experiences

  3. 10/99 Forum officially formed 6/00 UPnP arch. finalized 6/00 WinMe ships with UPnP 5/01 GW devices announced 5/01 UPnP toolkits announced 10/01WinXP ships with UPnP 10/01 Steering committee decides on convergence with Web Services for v2 11/01 UIC launched 11/01 GW standard published Q1/02 UPnP toolkits & WinCE ships Q1/02 Logoed GW devices ship 04/02 MS & IBM agree to license WSDL on RANDZ basis 06/02AV standards published 07/02 Printer & scanner standards published 10/02 Amendment to MA adds arch. process to Forum for v2 11/02 Basic Device standard is expected to publish * Q103 Logoed AV devices to ship UPnP: Three Years in the Making v2 events * Almost completed

  4. Forum Context & Priorities • Internet gateway devices: Extend present success • AV & imaging devices: Get interoperable products to market. • Security: Finalize solution and add security support to certification tool. • Automation working committee: Complete sample implementations and finalize specifications. • IGD working committee: extend the IGD specification & develop a specification for the auto configuration of wireless access points. • Certification entity: Grow list of certified devices and promote and exploit the UPnP logo. • Lowering the bar: Simplify the rules for adopting UPnP technology by enabling the Basic DCP approach. • IPv6: promote the benefits of IPv6 in devices on home networks. • UPnP-v2: Make transition to Web Services as smooth as possible.

  5. UPnP Working Committees Completed standard Design complete Final member review Design in progress

  6. The Promise of UPnP-AV Media of any type from any source device to any destination device under the control of a third device Media Sync Media Source Video Music Photos Display Speakers Media Flow Media Renderer DCP Media Server DCP UPnP is used for Discovery & Ctrl • Discovery • User interface • Format negotiations • Playback ctrl. DCP clients Controller

  7. Objectives of IGD/WAP Committee • IGD • Enhancements to port mapping in v1 • IPv6 support • Firewall configuration • WAP • Configuration of 802.11 access point parameters • Configuration of security to easily introduce new clients (key plumbing) • Long term agenda is to harmonize the configuration, control, and monitoring of networking gear for different physical media including: • QoS, • Security, • configuration, & • diagnostics

  8. Direction of Printing & Imaging Strong focus on UPnP v2 due to interest in enterprise deployment (where Web Services are important) in addition to consumer

  9. Basic Device DCP • Enables device vendors to ship product based on private DCP • Intended to facilitate the adoption of UPnP technology • Is not sufficient for certification and for using the UPnP logo • Unless at one or more standardized services are included

  10. UPnP v1 is Rock Solid • Big investments went into v1 • Fruition of three years of work • Spec is mature (industrial strength) • Deployment of certified devices has started • Availability of commercial tools • Support in Windows Me, XP, CE .NET & future versions

  11. UPnP v2 • Align UPnP with Web Services • Motivation for v2 • Unify development tools for UPnP devices and Web services • Unify developer experience and knowledge • Unify protocols so that a single stack communicates with both UPnP devices and Web services

  12. Progress on UPnP v2 • Steering committee decided to adopt WSDL in Oct 2001 • Microsoft and IBM agreed to grant a RANDZ (no royalty) license for the use of WSDL in the context of UPnP devices • Official W3C committee working on the WSDL schema language • Established a UPnP Forum Architecture Committee for defining the UPnP v2 architecture

  13. UPnP Architecture Process • Amendment to UPnP Forum member agreement • Introduced an Architecture Committee consisting of up to seven steering committee members • Ratification of UPnP architecture spec. requires unanimous approval by AC and 75% majority of the steering committee • Architecture is licensed for implementations on multiple platforms

  14. UPnP Implementers Corporation • 26 member companies • 14 certified gateway implementations • 7 members on BoD • For an up to date list, see http://www.upnp-ic.org
