There's more to your home than you can imagine




Intenos IoT vision is based on the fact that everything in the connected home should be integrated and accessible from different devices, from anywhere, at any time. The iopsys SW suite was designed to enable the creation of applications that can be downloaded and installed in the in-home residential gateway, which in turn connects to the cloud for secure access from anywhere at any time.

“In our opinion, the connected home starts with a cloud enabled gateway software. With an open software platform designed for innovation and participation it will become the hub for the connected home. The level of smartness is very flexible; some are interested in convenience, media and comfort, some in monitoring and some in home care. In order for this to be possible we promote an open system, ready for the innovation and participation, enabling the operator or open access network to partner with industry leading application suppliers. In the end the “system” will be the enabler and the application will put the consumer at the heart of IoT. The iopsys software suite will allow application development in all areas, and ecosystem partners are invited to participate in building tomorrows connected home, starting today”
– Conny Franzén.






Broadband operators and service providers are enabling and extending their delivery beyond triple play. Internet of Things services like home automation, surveillance, care and over-the-top media services are foreseen to grow by almost 50% by the end of 2018. In addition media consumption is growing rapidly, now mostly consumed via various WiFi enabled devices. This transformation within in-home communication will signify the need for a robust and innovative service- and content delivery platform.

Realizing this, Inteno has developed the iopsys platform (Inteno Open Platform System). iopsys is a complete service- and content delivery platform consisting of a Gateway Operating System, Home Portal and a multitude of software development kits, quickly enabling third party developers and service providers to innovate.

The Operating system

iopsys provides the first truly open source gateway software suited for the operator market. It supports all features required by high-end business critical Gateway software. To improve the ease of field upgrades and service deployment, the iopsys operating system includes a packet- and communication engine that provides modular installation/removal of native programs and application bundles. The iopsys SDK will enable both the third party developers to develop functions and applications that may be downloaded and installed in the OS. iopsys OS is an ideal platform for IoT development due to its modularity, vast network connectivity and remote management functions.

All software packages and final software are built on the OpenWrt software development platform. This includes all development utilities as well as a cross-compile tool chain.

The packet- and communication engine is used to enable modular installation without service interruption of software and applications.

The ICE-client based on XMPP is used to connect the gateway with the cloud via encrypted tunnels.


The ICE-Client

The ICE-client (iopsys communication engine) is a native application that can be integrated into any device that should be cloud connected. Typical devices are Gateways, Smart Phones, Tablets and Web Cameras but it could be just about anything that should be part of “The Internet of Things”. All ICE enabled devices connect to a cloud based XMPP infrastructure using an encrypted TCP tunnel. A Smart Phone running a Home Control application including the client can now communicate to the gateway using the XMPP cloud infrastructure from anywhere at any time through the encrypted TCP tunnel. The communication works behind any NAT and also provides for file transfers and proxy tunnel communication.

The ICE-client is embedded client software that can be integrated into any device for connection to the cloud, enabling the ”Internet of Things”. It can be dynamically extended using plugins providing a non-service interrupting installation of new applications.


3rd party applications

Inteno facilitates for third-party developers to deploy software on iopsys. This includes software SDK’s and hardware support. The combination of a modular software stack, packet engine and remote configuration support will make it possible to deploy third party software on an open source gateway platform.

The iopsys SDK enables both the operator and third party developers to develop functions and applications that may be downloaded and installed on the operating system from the XMPP management platform.

Cloud platform

The iopsys Cloud platform is a scalable server platform that includes a management server, helpdesk facilities and an application store. The platform is to be installed in the operator’s network. The management server handles the account administration and the communication with the iopsys communication engine residing in the registered devices. The home application store allows the customer to register new devices, install and manage new applications and device functions and to manage these remotely. With the Application Store enabled the customer has easy access to services beyond triple play.



ensures the secure communication between iopsys smart phones apps, devices and portal web pages. Account management, application management and device software management are the key capabilities provided by the server.


interface enables operators to easily diagnose devices in the home, even when they are behind multiple NAT. All devices are listed in one dashboard overview. From here consolidated status information, historical monitoring information and real time access to the connected devices is directly available through the helpdesk web interface. Accurate diagnostics and real-time reconfigurations have never been easier.


provides the application store to the end users. From here they can manage their gateway, download applications and handle customer driven upgrades. Applications developed using the SDKs can be easily installed and managed from the management interface.

Experience iopsys



Utilizing an open service delivery platform such as iopsys, only imagination limits the kinds of applications that can be developed. Below are some examples of use cases that have been realized using iopsys. The use cases range from care and comfort to connectivity and entertainment.


Bring your own applications to the iopsys gateway.

The major driving force for the development of the iopsys concept is our desire to open up the gateway to the vast community of great third party developers of software.

The iopsys SDK provides you with the API libraries, tool chains and SoC drivers necessary to build, test, and debug apps for iopsys.

Download the iopsys SDK Bundle today, and start developing your own iopsys apps.



Welcome to the iopsys open source partner program. A major driving force for the development of iopsys is the desire to open up the CPE for third party developers of software.
