Connectivity Standards Alliance: The Next Step To Zigbee Alliance For A Smarter Future
The tech giants, Google, Amazon, and Apple, in collaboration with many other tech companies have announced their participation in the Connectivity Standards Alliance, also known as CSA (a rebrand of the decades-old Zigbee Alliance). The aim is to create open standards for the smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) categories.
The newly formed CSA also announced Matter, a rebranding of the existing Connected Home over IP (CHIP) initiative.
Matter’s goal is to create a credible seal of approval for products, to assure customers they were built on the CSA standard to be intrinsically reliable, secure by design, and broadly compatible at scale. If this is a success, we can soon start to see cross-platform devices working much better together.
The root of this new alliance is from the ones that were formed as part of the Zigbee Alliance which is now a huge success. Considering the success, there are high hopes that the project “Matter” will also be a grand success. A new logo for the project was also revealed. Matter is being designed to unite the network domains and allowing devices to operate with any voice-enabled control systems. Though we are slowly growing in the smart home space, with the increase in devices, we definitely need something that can bring all devices to one single platform of communication.
