At prpl, we share a commitment in creating the smart society of the future by enabling secure interoperability of connected devices. Operators and solutions providers have long been held back by the lack of interoperability found in proprietary software platforms. With so much noise in the ecosystem, the prpl Foundation is dedicated to the promotion of open–source software to create a simpler, more efficient future for all. Through collaborations with industry standardisation bodies such as the Broadband Forum and Wi–Fi Alliance, members have the opportunity to work on technical materials, tools and methodologies designed to accelerate the security and interoperability of digital technologies.
