Abstract
Current efforts in extending the Internet are focused on achieving full support of services and user-centric content from sectors such as energy management, education, and e-health. Until recently, these sectors typically developed their own communication infrastructure and systems, leading to point solutions, often built on non-IP technologies. We describe a demonstrator that shows how a non-IP supporting Continua-certified health device, such as a weighing scale, can be unlocked for use by other devices and services in the home by applying Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), and how this enables new use cases and business models.
