The Fairhair Alliance Extends a Warm Welcome to Its Latest Member, NXP

PISCATAWAY, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2016) -  "We are delighted that NXP has joined the Fairhair Alliance, as a Regular Member," said Fairhair Secretary-General, Ruud van Bokhorst. "They are a key player in IoT network solutions, with exactly the right technical and standardization expertise that Fairhair needs."

Hans Dollee, Head of Technology Partnerships at NXP, confirmed the new membership.

"The Fairhair Alliance is playing a vital role in the fragmented landscape of IoT standard initiatives, by specifying a cost effective and secure IPv6-Based common network infrastructure that serves as the 'architecture-of-choice' for interoperable Lighting and Building Automation. And NXP, as leader in 'Secure Connections for a Smarter World,' should be part of the ecosystem, contributing to the set of technical specifications."
