We welcome the Eclipse Foundation

The Eclipse Foundation joins the DASH7 Alliance

We are happy to welcome the Eclipse Foundation as a new member of the DASH7 Alliance.

Due to multiple benefits for both organizations, a mutual membership was exchanged between the DASH7 Alliance and the Eclipse Foundation. Both organizations share a focus on community-driven innovation and values such as openness and vendor-neutrality. This mutual membership is only the first step in an ongoing strategic collaboration between our organizations.

As the leading open source community within the IoT industry, the Eclipse IoT Working Group plays a vital role within the IoT ecosystem and therefore is of interest to other members of the Dash7 Alliance as well. Whether it is hardware related like sensor and gateway manufacturers or IoT platform development, one of the expected benefits of this mutual membership is joint participation in industry collaborations to develop common open IoT platforms for Industrial IoT, Industry 4.0, Edge Computing, and more.

Additionally, the DASH7 Alliance recognizes the added value in moving open source reference implementations of the specification and conformance test suites as projects under the Eclipse IoT umbrella.

In short, the combination of a wireless network protocol like DASH7 and the well-governed Eclipse IoT open source projects are an ideal match to drive the growth of a sustainable ecosystem based on open source software innovation.

DASH7 Alliance Protocol v1.2 Published

The DASH7 Alliance protocol specification v1.2 has been voted by the Members on January 31st 2019.

The version 1.2 of the DASH7 specification has been split in 2 documents, one for the DASH7 wireless protocol itself and a second one for the DASH7 Application Layer Protocol (ALP).

ALP has been implemented with success over several protocol (BLE, GPRS, NFC,…) and the Alliance has decided to publish its specification separately to allow its broader use.

Successful interoperability testing during PAG Meeting

On December 13 and 14th the Protocol Action Group held an official meeting hosted in the premises of STMicroelectronics in Paris. Read more…



DASH7 Specification evolution

The first day was focused on reviewing the current draft of the upcoming D7A v1.2 specification. This version of the specification contains some incremental changes which will be fully backwards compatible with the current v1.1. We managed to make good progress and are optimistic that this version will be ready for ratification in Q1 2018. Additionally, we brainstormed about changes beyond v1.2 and agreed on the main ideas and future direction of the specification.

PlugFest, Interoperability testing

The second day was reserved for the plugfest. During this session we had the opportunity to validate interoperability between different implementations of the specification. Shown on the picture is a Wizzilab Gateway and a node,  running the Wizzilab stack, and a STMicroelectronics devkits and a Cortus FPGA devkit (running the Cortus APS Softcore) which are running the OSS-7 opensource stack.

During this plugfest we managed to test a lot of functionalities, going from adhoc synchronization over network layer security and transaction timings all the way to the application layer. Without any effort we succeeded to register an OSS-7 based device on an existing system based on a Wizzilab gateway and backend, and interrogate the OSS-7 device right from the WizziCloud solution system, as you can see on the screenshot below. All parties involved were very happy with the results, since this showed the maturity of both the specification and the substantial progress in all implementations. Furthermore, hardware was exchanged to make it possible to perform offline interoperability testing.
