Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a set of computer network protocols promulgated by the UPnP Forum. The purpose of UPnP is to allow the devices to connect seamlessly and to simplify the implementation of the networks at home and in the corporate environment. UPnP achieves this by defining and publishing UPnP device control protocols built upon open, Internet-based communication standards.
The term UPnP is gleaned from Plug-and-play, a technology for dynamically attaching devices to a computer directly.
