The OIC/UPnP deal was a good fit in part because Intel was a prime mover helping form both groups. AllSeen was originally a project of archrival Qualcomm.
As part of the deal, OIC will form a new UPnP Work Group to maintain the UPnP specifications, and certification tools within the overall OIC organization. OIC will offer legacy UPnP certification for a fee to companies who choose not to join OIC.
