SEAD Connected Efficiency Award - Winners Announced

SEAD has announced the communications protocols that were awarded a Connected Efficiency Award.  The winning protcols are:

  • IEEE Std 1905.1a™-2014 IEEE Standard for a Convergent Digital Home Network for Heterogeneous Technologies
  • Zigbee Protocols: PRO, Green Power, 3.0
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet
  • ECMA-393 “proxZzzy™ for sleeping hosts

More information at SEAD Awards Website.  

The objective of the Awards are to promote the uptake (within mains-powered, network-connected devices) of communications protocols which minimise the energy required to maintain network connectivity.  The Awards also aim to highlight those who develop these class-leading protocols and spur further innovation in this area.

The Award was developed in collaboration with the Connected Devices Alliance and the IEA 4E’s Electronic Devices and Networks Annex (EDNA).
