We present an overview of the Open Services Gateway Initiative (OSGi™) technology and its associated mechanisms for accessing devices. A technical description of work currently underway to map various industry device and service discovery protocols to OSGi is presented, followed by an illustrative usage case for a home networking environment. Finally, the authors describe the benefits OSGi discovery technology offers in home networking and discuss potential future work in this area.
