Matter 1.0
Specification
Officially Released
Connectivity Standards Alliance unveils
the long-awaited Matter 1.0 standard
and certification program for smart
home wireless connectivity.
By Jason Knott
AFTER MUCH anticipation,
the Matter 1.0 wireless specification
has finally arrived.
The Connectivity Standards
Alliance, the international
community of more than 550
technology companies committed
to open standards
for the Internet of Things,
announced the release of the
Matter 1.0 specification and
the opening of the Matter
certification program.
Member companies who
make up all facets of the
IoT now have a complete
program for bringing the next
generation of interoperable
products that work across
brands and platforms to
market with greater privacy,
security, and simplicity.
As part of the Matter 1.0

are open for product certification,
the test harnesses
and tools are available, and
the open-source reference
design software development
kit (SDK) is complete
- all to bring new, innovative

ther, Alliance members with
devices already deployed
and with plans to update
their products to support
Matter can now do so, once
their products are certified.
" What started as a mission
to unravel the complexities
of connectivity has resulted
in Matter, a single, global
IP-based protocol that will
fundamentally change the
IoT, " says Tobin Richardson,
president/CEO of the CSA.
Over 280 member companies
- including Amazon,
Apple, Comcast, Google,
Samsung SmartThings and
Signify - have brought their
technologies, experience,
and innovations together to
ensure Matter met the needs
of all stakeholders including
users, product makers, and
platforms. These companies
led the way through requirements
and specification development,
reference design,
multiple test events and final
specification validation.
" We would not be where
we are today without the
The Matter 1.0 standard and certification program is
supported by more than 550 companies.
strength and dedication of
the Alliance members who
have provided thousands of
engineers, intellectual property,
software accelerators,
security protocols, and the
financial resources to accomplish
what no single company
could ever do on their own, "
says Bruno Vulcano, chair of
the Alliance Board and R&D
manager for Legrand Digital
Infrastructure.
More than just a specification,
the Matter 1.0 standard
launches with test cases and
comprehensive test tools
for Alliance members and a
global certification program
including eight authorized
test labs also primed to test
Matter's underlying network
technologies, Wi-Fi and
Thread. Wi-Fi enables Matter
devices to interact over a
high-bandwidth local network
and allows smart home
devices to communicate with
the cloud. Thread provides
an energy efficient and highly
reliable mesh network within
the home. Both the Wi-Fi
Alliance and Thread Group
partnered with the Connectivity
Standards Alliance to
help realize the complete
vision of Matter.
" Matter and Thread
resolve interoperability and
connectivity issues in smart
homes so manufacturers can
focus on other value-adding
innovations, " Thread Group
president Vividh Siddha says.
Matter is also striking new
ground with security policies
and processes using distributed
ledger technology and
Public Key Infrastructure to
validate device certification
and provenance. This will
help to ensure users are connecting
authentic, certified,
and up-to-date devices to
their homes and networks,
the Alliance says.
This initial release of
Matter, using Bluetooth Low
Energy for device commissioning,
will support products,
including lighting and
electrical, HVAC controls,
window coverings and
shades, safety and security
sensors, door locks, media
devices including TVs, controllers
as both devices and
applications, and bridges.
