Companies Show Functionality of New ETSI M2M Release 1 Specification
Sensinode Ltd., a leading provider of software that powers the Internet of Things, today announced its participation in a multi-vendor demonstration of wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) functionality utilizing standards released this week by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
The demo was part of the 2nd ETSI M2M Workshop, (Oct. 26-27) in Sophia Antipolis, France. Convened to address technical issues related to the rollout of global M2M solutions, this group developed its first technical standard in just one year following its initial meeting in Sept. 2010.
Sensinode software and development kit devices from its NanoService™ Platform, including M2M nodes, Android and Web applications, and NanoRouter™ edge routing software were used in the demonstration. The work done by ETSI defines application interfaces that can rest on Sensinode NanoServices, which also support the recently defined ZigBee Smart Energy 2.0 standards environment.
The End to End (E2E) ETSI M2M Release 1 compliant demo showcased a range of products, including constrained devices and full function M2M nodes, gateways, and servers operating with ETSI M2M defined service layers and remote network applications over the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP). Using multiple network technologies – including 802.15.4, 802.11, 3GPP/GPRS, and 3GPP/UMTS – the E2E M2M Platform supports Smart Energy Applications, Environmental Sensing Applications, mHealth Applications, Intelligent Transport System Applications, Robotic Application, and also a Generic ETSI M2M Application highlighting the standardization framework developed by ETSI TC M2M.
“Success in extending IP functionality to literally billions of devices absolutely requires a framework of standards that defines the necessary technology ecosystem,” said Adam Gould, Chief Executive Officer of Sensinode.
“That’s why Sensinode has worked since its founding with the key internationals standards bodies and industry alliances to help define and implement key standards that form the basis of the Internet of Things.”
