UPnP is a widely-spread connectivity standard, which allows networked devices to cooperate in an autonomous fashion by using functionality found on the network. In this article we validate UPnP as a service-oriented architecture. We identify shortcomings of the standard and propose solutions. In our view, eventing is the weakest mechanism in UPnP technology. We propose extensions to the existing eventing protocol in UPnP, which allow overcoming identified problems. We compare our solution with standard UPnP with respect to performance.
