Lisbon (Portugal) and Bern (Switzerland), April 14, 2015. The ULE Alliance, a non-profit organization of leading companies that promotes the worldwide allocation and market adoption of the ULE (Ultra Low Energy) wireless technology announces the release of the open source HAN-FUN protocol and its partnership with Bithium, a design house focused on DECT developments. Bithium will provide the protocol specification management and is appointed as the open source project code maintainer.

The HAN-FUN (Home Area Network Functional) protocol, an integral part of the ULE technology provides application level interoperability between devices from different vendors. It has actually grown out of the need to provide inter-operable control over ubiquitous applications within Home Area Networks. Bithium has assisted the ULE Alliance in the development of the HAN-FUN protocol as well as its common implementation that is now open to inputs and contributions from the community as an open source project. The ULE Alliance HanFun project is available in GitHub under this link.

We want to thank the ULE Alliance for the positive co-operation we have and for designating Bithium as the partner in HAN-FUN design as well as consulting in the evolution of standard and code maintenance. We believe ULE will be enabling innovative mass market affordable systems in the near future. That matches our vision and focus, to turn innovative customer’s ideas into reality thus contributing to a life of Wireless Freedom,†says Antonio Muchaxo, Managing Director of Bithium.

We are pleased to partner with Bithium and appreciate in particular the cooperation in the process of creating the HAN-FUN protocol. ULE underpins the technological advantages for IoT and extends a high degree of interoperability, inherited from the reliable and worldwide-adopted DECT technology. Thus we rely on Bithium’s proven experience and broad portfolio, says Avi Barel, Business Development Director of the ULE Alliance.
