General Dynamics Mission Systems joins ZBOSS Open Initiative (ZOI), a Community for Royalty-Free Zigbee® PRO Stack Software

July 15th, 2022

Just over 2 years ago DSR Corporation in collaboration with Nordic Semiconductor launched ZBOSS Open Initiative (ZOI), a community of companies with a shared understanding of the value of community, when it comes to building and maintaining a Zigbee® PRO software platform; to overcome, together, the challenges around interoperability, security, testing, and optimization of Zigbee®-enabled products and solutions. ZOI’s member-driven, non-open source approach helps maintain performance and quality over time while providing its members access to the latest in-development Zigbee features and improvements.

Since the original launch, ZOI has grown exponentially and we are excited to welcome its latest member, General Dynamics Mission Systems, American aerospace, and defense corporation that provides mission-critical solutions to those who lead, serve and protect the world we live in.

“General Dynamics Mission System looks forward to collaborating with the ZBOSS Open Initiative (ZOI) on improving Zigbee® PRO software features and capabilities. Membership in the ZOI will be leveraged by General Dynamics Mission Systems engineers across a wide range of current and future applications.” Nathaniel Holmes, Lead Engineer – ETES, General Dynamics Mission Systems.

As the IoT continues to expand, the need for building better products faster increases. When joining ZOI, product companies can do just that - build their smart products on top of a market-proven Zigbee® stack, utilizing the full suite of CI/CD testing tools, while receiving complete support critical for efficient product development. ZOI member companies benefit from focusing on their product features, rather than focusing on supporting new feature development for the underlying protocol stack. Instead, the stack-related needs and concerns of ZOI member companies help to steer the development roadmap for ZBOSS.
