Sensinode is a technology leader for the Internet of Things, offering the latest open standard IP and Web technology optimized for constrained devices and networks. Sensinode is actively developing and promoting open standards at the IETF, ZigBee, ETSI and the IPSO Alliance. In a nutshell, this technology makes the Internet of Things possible by greatly reducing the complexity and overhead of key Internet and Web protocols.
The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) enables web services for even the most constrained devices and networks, while integrating with the web architecture and HTTP. Standardized by the IETF, and optimized for applications such as Smart Energy, home and building automation, asset tracking and cellular M2M, CoAP is a key technology for turning the Internet of Things in to the Web of Things. Sensinode's NanoService solution uses CoAP, together with Sensinode's semantic web linking, resource directory and EXI technology, to provide end-to-end embedded web services.
A new innovation in Internet Protocol technology, called 6LoWPAN, is making the Internet of Things become a reality. 6LoWPAN is a standard from the IETF first published in 2007, which optimizes IPv6 for use with low-power, low-bandwidth communication technologies such as IEEE 802.15.4. 6LoWPAN works by compressing 60 bytes of headers down to just 7 bytes, and optimizing mechanisms for wireless embedded networking. Sensinode provides 6LoWPAN stack and router solutions for a wide range of IEEE 802.15.4 and other low-power radio technologies together with IETF standards based mesh routing.
If you're interested to learn more about 6LoWPAN's significant advantages and understand the technology more thoroughly, we recommend you to take a closer look at the enclosed video.
In this seminar video Zach Shelby introduces his new book and gives an overview of The Internet of Things and 6LoWPAN protocols (1h 20min).
There is a lot to learn about 6LoWPAN, CoAP and the Internet of Things. On the right side of this page you can find leading resources about these technologies including related books, course material, white papers and links.
