The large scale EPCglobal architecture framework is considered as a part of the emerging Internet of Things, an “Intranet of Goods” as it can be designed in a networked business-to-business world.

One of its key standard-based components is a centralized objects directory service called the ONS (Object Naming Service) and based on the DNS (Domain name System). Given the importance of ONS systems in the near future, the WINGS project aims at developing alternative solutions to the incumbent architecture.

To ensure the further interconnection and interoperability of multiple roots, the project partners propose to design and evaluate a federated ONS system that will take into consideration security, stability, performance as well as interaction with DS (Discovery Services). The aim is to show that several ONS roots can work together and safely share the management and the governance of the network.
