Connectivity Technology Organizations 2014: An Assessment of Group Structures, Fees and Possible Implications on Future Market Growth

Connectivity technology organisations are an essential mechanism for developing, ratifying, standardizing, and driving a technology forward. They provide a vital, independent platform for interested parties to get involved and help shape the future of a technology.

This study profiles and provides commentary on seven chosen connectivity technology groups:

  • Bluetooth
  • HDMI
  • NFC
  • USB
  • Wi-Fi
  • ZigBee
  • Z-Wave

Profiles include a brief history, member companies, board of directors and membership levels available. This study also looks at the typical costs involved with bringing to market a product that is certified by one of these groups from the view of a developer.
