Abstract

Purpose

Home networks enable, potentially, an increased level of integration among appliances present in the house, enabling an ubiquitous control of devices and simplifying man/machine interactions. This paper aims to present the home network interoperability (HoNeY) platform.

Design/methodology/approach

Home networks and their challenges are analyzed, then the technology that constitutes the base for the present implementation is briefly revised. The HoNeY platform is presented, in terms of its architecture, implementation, and constraints.

Findings

The HoNeY platform is an multimedia home platform (MHP)‐based, low‐complex, cost‐effective architecture for automatic discovery, configuration, and dynamic access to distributed services in home environments.

Originality/value

This paper describes HoNeY, a mechanism of service discovery and code mobility designed for interoperability of devices connected to home networks, compatible with the MHP standard.
