The Alliance, an international community of more than 700 technology companies committed to open standards for the Internet of Things (IoT), recently announced the creation of the Japan Interest Group (“JIG”). Comprised of volunteer members united by their interest in Alliance technologies and the IoT market in Japan, this newly established interest group, led by Interim Chair Alliance Member Fumi Shingai, CEO of X-HEMISTRY Inc., with the support from Interim Vice Chair Shigeki Nakamura of Panasonic, Interim Secretary Denver Mishima of Allion Japan Inc., aims to foster dialogue and collaboration among its members while enhancing Matter™ and Aliro™ Smart Home standards globally.

The JIG will provide a platform for discussing standards within the Alliance and create a framework for sharing and disseminating various initiatives among local member companies. The new branch will adopt Japanese as its general common language and facilitate regular exchanges of information to strengthen collaboration among members.

"The establishment of the JIG heralds a new era of Alliance-wide collaboration and communication, fostering global cooperation and, more specifically, advancing the reach of Matter and the emergence of Aliro," said Musa Unmehopa, Head of Wireless Standards & Regulations at Signify and Alliance Board Chair.
