Why Join IPSO?

  • Expand your Network:  The IPSO Alliance is a diverse and collaborative forum, including many Fortune 500 high tech companies as well as start-ups, each a leading player in their industry.  IPSO Alliance members are spread across different geo-locations, diversified across industry segments and span the value chain. 
  • Grow your Business:  Your participation in a community devoted to IP-based interoperability will make each company’s solutions more valuable and more able to participate in a seamless Web of mutually beneficial data exchanges.  The data made available and the connectivity deployed will also be a great spur for innovation in what can be done with this real time data or with connected devices.
  • Amplify your Message:  Benefit from greater market acceptance, faster growth and higher profits by leveraging existing standards with IPSO’s IP best-practices Reference Application Framework, through participation in IPSO’s Interop events and technology innovation challenges, and via the contributions of your fellow members and IPSO’s marketing initiatives.

  • Define the Conversation: Network with established experts and learn how your products can connect with other devices and increase the consumer value delivered by machine-to-machine communications. Keep ahead of emerging trends; engage in friendly co-opetition and knowledge sharing around competitive products and systems in similar industries.

Improve the quality of life for individuals and communities through increased connectivity, sustainability, safety, security and well-being.
