  2014,可谓是“智能”概念漫天飞的年度,在智能家居行业,除了国外谷歌、苹果、微软及国内百度、腾讯、阿里、京东等为代表的互联网大佬外,以西门子、三星、LG、海尔、美的、格力等为代表的电器企业,以及以华为、小米、中兴等为代表的通信厂商皆纷纷竞逐该领域。而那些多年来一直从事此行业的企业,在智能家居的风潮下,也加快了步伐,为推进智能家居产业进程而奋斗。其中不乏安居宝、快思聪、尼特、南京物联等企业。

  南京物联曾一度将自己智能家居战略提升到很高层面。从其布局上来看,物联在智能家居领域的频频出手取得较好的成绩,来自全国各地的代理商更是为其战略蓝图锦上添花。而在其战略部署和发展历程上,不得不提2014年的几件事件,其中最受人关注的还是2014智能家居无线技术纠纷牵扯的问题,即南京物联与ZigBee之间的口水大战,此事一度引起行业人士热议。

   2014事件回顾

  1、南京物联与Zi个Bee口水纷争

  首先,让我们一起科普下什么是ZigBee协议?ZigBee协议由ZigBee Alliance制定,从1998年开始发展,于2001年向电机电子工程师学会(IEEE)提案纳入IEEE 802.15.4标准规范之中,自此将ZigBee技术渐渐成为各业界共同通用的低速短距无线通讯技术之一。

  2014年,国际ZigBee联盟主席&CEO  Tobin J.M. Richardson向全球400多个联盟成员发出通告,对一家中国公司“南京物联”假借ZigBee联盟名义和对外公然宣称“产品经过ZigBee认证”进行虚假恶意宣传进行全球通报。一封邮件,让平静已久的智能家居市场陷入了口水纷争。

  据当时消息爆料,Tobin在通报邮件中说,“南京物联”(Wulian)严重违反了 ZigBee 联盟的知识产权,对ZigBee联盟旗下的成员公司造成了非常大的不公平。其中的中文翻译如下图:

 

  邮件正文如下:

  A Chinese company named "Wulian" (also operating under the name "Nanjing IoT") has been misrepresenting itself as the ZigBee Alliance in China and other areas, despite the fact that they have no present affiliation with the ZigBee Alliance. Moreover, Wulian has been inaccurately and intentionally mis-advertising its products as "ZigBee Certified," which they are not.

  The ZigBee Alliance takes these transgressions very seriously and is taking active steps to resolve this issue. Promoting and protecting the interests of the stakeholder members of the ZigBee Alliance is of utmost importance. This news bulletin serves to notify you of this situation and to inform you of the actions being taken to rectify it.

  The ZigBee Alliance (an IRS 501(c)(3) corporation registered in California, USA) remains the sole global developer and owner of the unique "ZigBee" standards and the ZigBee Certification program for wireless device-to-device communication based on IEEE 802.15.4. Any other entity making these claims, such as Wulian, is improper and in violation of the ZigBee Alliance’s intellectual property rights, as it seeks to unfairly capitalize on the work and investment of the hundreds of legitimate ZigBee Alliance member companies who rely on fair and open markets for free trade.

  While we have attempted in good faith to amicably correct this situation directly with Wulian, they refuse to comply. Subsequently, the ZigBee Alliance has taken steps to address these issues, including contacting appropriate U.S. and other country trade representatives, filing objections to Wulian's use of the ZigBee trademark and name, and contacting the Chinese Trademark Office (CTMO). We will request and expect a fair hearing through the regular and official avenues of the Chinese government.

  While the actions of this one rogue player are of serious concern, we remain excited and confident about the opportunity ahead for ZigBee Alliance stakeholders as we enable the vast benefits of the Internet of Things.

  The ZigBee Alliance will provide you with additional information and updates as necessary. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit thewww.ZigBee.org website where you can consult our member listing to ensure that you are dealing with legitimate ZigBee Alliance member companies who bring to market true ZigBee Certified products. We welcome interested companies to join the hundreds of ZigBee Alliance member companies who are realizing the Internet of Things today.

 

  “南京物联”以ZigBee联盟中国区域总部自居

  此话还得从2012年说起,当年12月17日,ZigBee联盟中国总部揭牌仪式暨应用研讨会在上海物联网科技园隆重举行。当年报道说”这是物联网上升为国家战略性新兴产业之后,在上海成立的首家全球物联网组织的中国总部。也是ZigBee联盟在中国乃至亚太地区成立的级别最高的机构。”而2014却又上演了一幕纠纷水口战。
