Overview

Networked devices should be as easy for consumers to set up as stereo equipment-when you plug it in and turn it on, it just works. Universal Plug and Play technology can make this happen. This book is primarily a resource for software developers who are implementing UPnP technology in their products. It also provides a great introduction for those who are new to the technology.Traditionally, network peripherals have not been easy to install. Recent standards such as Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Plug-and-Play have improved the situation so that devices are automatically detected and device drivers automatically installed. Yet, networked devices, like Internet gateways and networked printers, still require manual setup and configuration. If you are a software developer who is already familiar with basic network programming concepts and protocols, UPnP Design by Example provides everything you need to know to design UPnP technology into your product. In this book, you will discover:

  • Basic UPnP concepts such as control points, devices, and services
  • Protocols that form the foundation of the UPnP architecture
  • An example of how to develop a UPnP device from start to finish
  • The latest topics, such as UPnP Audio/Video and Simple Control Protocol (SCP)
The CD-ROM contains:
  • C-language code for all examples presented in the book
  • Complete UPnP specifications and related documents
  • The Intel SDK for UPnP Devices for Linux, including source code and binaries
  • Tools to view and interact with any UPnP device, to monitor UPnP protocols, and to generate XML device descriptions
