Today, Canonical is officially a participating member of the CSA, which will help develop and promote open standards for the IoT (Internet of Things) industry and promote the Ubuntu Core operating system for embedded devices.
Canonical was the first CSA member to offer a mainstream standalone GNU/Linux distribution, promising out-of-the-box support for the Matter standard in its Ubuntu Core operating system to improve interoperability and accessibility.
“Our goal is to make Ubuntu Core the best platform for Matter devices,” said Nathan Hart, Canonical Product Manager. “Our goal is to support Matter out of the box on Ubuntu Core to push Matter devices The fastest and most reliable way to market”.
Matter is an upcoming Internet Protocol (IP)-based communication standard designed to make smart home devices safe, reliable, and seamless to use. When launched later this year, Matter will be adopted by most major IoT hardware vendors, as well as virtually every software vendor supporting IoT devices.
