IPSO Alliance hosts International demonstration of IP enabled Smart Objects at Networld + Interop 2009
- May 20
IP Enabled Devices Demonstrate Use Across Wide Range of Applications and Environments in Real Time
LAS VEGAS, NV (May 20, 2009) -- The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance, an organization of leading networking technology vendors and users, today announced a variety of demonstrations being showcased at NetWorld+Interop 2009, including a world-wide IP sensor connectivity display, running continuously over the course of the show. With applications ranging from home and commercial building automation, smart metering, factory monitoring, and data center energy management, these demonstrations underscore the flexibility, scalability and low power operation of IP-based smart object networking solutions - all available today.
The IPSO Alliance's live interoperability demonstration links a multitude of sensors globally with an SAP database. A graphical application displayed at the IPSO Alliance booth (#2513) will allow Interop visitors to see the results of the demonstration as they come in from products developed by member companies Arch Rock, Atmel, Cisco, Dust Networks, Freescale, GainSpan, Jennic, Nivis, SAP, Sensinode, SICS, and Sigma Designs. The data will be drawn from devices located in cities throughout Europe, Asia and North America.
A smart object is one that combines sensing, computational power, communications capability, and a small power source to provide real time information to a host application. By using Internet Protocol, devices from multiple companies, some using differing physical communication links, can easily interoperate without the need for complex gateways and other redundant infrastructure.
"This demonstration puts to rest the notion that IP is not practical for embedding intelligence into objects in the physical world," stated Geoff Mulligan, IPSO Alliance Chairman. "Internet Protocol is destined to be the only logical choice to serve as a unifying communications standard for Smart Objects. IP's acceptance around the world for Internet traffic makes its use both the logical and cost-effective choice over any proprietary or ad hoc protocol."
Solutions displayed at the IPSO Alliance Booth #2513 include:
* Primex Wireless timekeeping solution that delivers automated synchronization and traceable accuracy;
* GainSpan's WiFi-enabled thermostat that provides businesses and consumers with means to remotely control their energy consumption;
* Nivis 6LoWPAN compliant wireless router designed to enable easily deployable and scalable wireless sensor and control networks;
* A highly reliable data center monitoring and control system designed to dramatically cut energy consumption, a solution wirelessly enabled by Dust Networks' embedded networking system;
* Sigma Designs' wireless home control technology utilizing Z-Wave chips inside real products;
* Atmel's IPv6-ready RF and microcontroller platform.
Visit the IPSO Alliance booth to see the global demonstration of IP enabled Smart Objects in real time and to see solutions available from sponsoring organizations Arch Rock, Atmel, Dust Networks, Freescale, GainSpan, Jennic, Nivis, Primex Wireless, Sensinode, Sigma Designs and Tridium.
About the IPSO Alliance
Intended to complement the efforts of entities such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), which develop and ratify technical standards in the Internet community, the IPSO Alliance performs interoperability tests, documents the use of new IP-based technologies, conducts marketing activities and serves as an information repository for users seeking to understand the role of IP in networks of physical objects. IPSO Alliance membership is open to any organization advocating an IP-based approach to connecting smart objects. For more information, visit http://www.ipso-alliance.org.
