The SIRENA project started in 2003 to leverage Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) to seamlessly interconnect (embedded) devices inside and between four distinct domains - the industrial, telecommunication, automotive and home automation domain. A framework was developed to achieve this aim as well as assuring interoperability with existing devices and extensibility of network based on SIRENA technology. The core of the framework is the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) which will play an important role in the upcoming Microsoft Windows. The first DPWS stack worldwide developed by the SIRENA consortium is described and its operation evidenced in several demonstrators. This paper presents the results of the SIRENA project, provides insights into used technologies and presents tools, components and services for advanced development, deployment and maintenance of devices.
