Universal Plug'n Play (UPnP) Reference

Introduction

This section discusses devices compliant to UPnP (Universal Plug'n Play) architecture. This architecture has been developed over +10 years by member companies of the UPnP Forum. Although this section focuses on UPnP device models defined for AV (Audio-Visual) devices, UPnP defines a number of other standard device models for Home Network Gateways, Telephony, Remote Access, and Home Automation applications.
