What is Alljoyn
AllJoyn is an open source software framework that makes it easy for devices and apps to discover and communicate with each other.
Developers can write applications that discover nearby devices and communicate with each other directly and through the cloud regardless of transport layer, manufacturer, and without the need for Internet access, unleashing new possibilities in the Internet of Things.
The software is openly available for developers to download, and runs on popular platforms such as Linux and Linux-based Android, iOS, and Windows, including many other lightweight real-time operating systems.
AllJoyn has been tested, deployed and improved to create products, apps and services that connect and communicate across dozens of product lines. The AllSeen Alliance’s diversity in membership strengthens the AllJoyn open source codebase, making it a robust, flexible framework that can be used in consumer, enterprise and industrial scenarios.
