Samsung today announced that it and several other companies have created a group called the Open Interconnect Consortium.

The OIC’s goal is to create a connection protocol for what is commonly referred to as the Internet of Things. Some of the other companies include Dell, Atmel, Intel, Broadcom, and Wind River.

The group is focused on delivering a specification, an open source implementation, and a certification program for wirelessly connecting devices, such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, and various other bits of gear. The group will first target hardware common to homes and home offices, such as thermostats and refrigerators, and will expand from there.

The OIC is competing with a similar group supported by Qualcomm and Microsoft.
