The Peer-to-Peer Universal Computing Consortium (PUCC) will be demonstrating its P2P networking technology on various electronic devices and health sensors during CES Unveiled 2008 next week in Las Vegas.

The group will demonstrate how its networking technology can be used in homes and offices by utilizing and bridging existing networking standards, thereby connecting devices such as health sensors, home gateway, mobile phones and small robots to form a unified network.

The common core protocol is able to bridge existing networks like Ethernet, Wi-Fi, IEEE 1394, Bluetooth, ZigBee and IrDA with minimum changes.

PUCC, a non-profit organization made up of corporate members from 25 Japanese tech companies and universities, has been developing and manufacturing an open source peer-to-peer networking standard with a goal of a P2P communication technology that allows all electronic devices and appliances to seamlessly communicate.

Located in Tokyo, members include NTT DoCoMo, Epson, Toshiba, TransVirtual and Keio University.
