HGI (formerly the Home Gateway Initiative) is a standardization organization founded in 2004 by a multitude of telecommunication companies and device manufacturers (particularly of routers and home gateways). Revenues from telephony and internet services are shrinking, which is why many telecommunications companies in particular are looking into the development of smart home systems. As a result, HGI got involved early on and defines aspects such as the requirements for an open and modular software architecture for smart home gateways. These requirements are brought together in the publicly accessible HGI Open Platform 2.0 document.
