Chapter 13. UPnP > ABOUT UNIVERSAL PLUG AND PLAY

ABOUT UNIVERSAL PLUG AND PLAY

UPnP is at the heart of Microsoft's home networking strategy and uses open Internet communication standards to transparently connect consumer electronic devices to standard PCs. UPnP makes it possible to initiate and control the transfer of files and A/V streams from any device on an in-home network.

UPnP is an extension to the plug-and-play initiative that was introduced by Intel, Compaq, and Microsoft back in 1992. A high-level overview of the architecture of UPnP is illustrated in Figure 13.1.
