Shara Tibken: Intel, Samsung create Internet of Things group

Source: „The effort to reduce complications for the Internet of Things just got more complicated.
A handful of tech-industry heavyweights including Intel, Broadcom, and Samsung Electronics on Tuesday unveiled a new nonprofit group called the Open Interconnect Consortium, or OIC, with the mission to develop standards and certification for devices involved in the Internet of Things.
The new group is being created just a few months after the nonprofit Linux Foundation announced a different consortium called AllSeen Alliance, which has a similar goal. OIC is planning on coming out with its own open-source software around the third quarter of this year, pitting its offering against AllSeen's open-source AllJoyn software -- developed by chipmaker Qualcomm -- and likely leaving it up to developers to decide which platform they would rather use.”
