Membership Benefits

Join The Alliance

Work with the world’s most innovative companies to create, evolve, and promote universal open standards that connect all IoT devices – regardless of country, network, brand or function – for a unifying wireless experience that inspires new possibilities for people everywhere.

Membership at a Glance

Curious which level is right for your company? Below you’ll find an overview of the four types of membership:

Associate Members use standards-based IoT products but do not directly build or manufacture them. To join at the Associate level and certify white-label products, a company must partner with an Alliance Participant or Promoter member through our Certification Transfer Program.

Adopter Members use existing, approved specifications to build products. Adopters can access completed, approved standards documents, certify products through Alliance certification programs, and use Alliance technology logos and trademarks for certified products.

Participant Members contribute to and develop standards they will later adopt and use. Participants can access Alliance Working Groups, are hands-on in developing specifications, and gain early access to draft specifications and testing, with opportunity to develop and get to market faster.

Promoter Members contribute to, develop, and adopt Alliance standards and enjoy all other member level benefits. Promoters help lead the Alliance with final approval on all standards, hold a seat on the Alliance Board of Directors, and  may lead and participate in Board Committees.
