"Intel Corporation announced today that it will make available to hardware and software developers worldwide the software needed to make Linux-based devices, such as Internet appliances, residential gateways and home networking products, significantly easier to install and use."

"The software, developed by the Intel Architecture Labs, gives vendors the capability to add ease of use features to their products based on the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) specification. UPnP is an industry specification that allows networked devices to automatically identify and configure themselves for instant communication with each other or the Internet, while hiding the complexities of setup from the users."

"The software, called Intel Universal Plug and Play Software Development Kit V1.0 for Linux, offers hardware and software developers a fast, very cost-effective way to integrate UPnP features into their Linux-based products, via a royalty-free open source license."
