Launch of Nivis' Smart Object Platform Fuels the Internet of Things Revolution

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- Nivis, a global leader in Smart Grid and Industrial Wireless networking, today announced the availability of its Smart Object platform that targets monitoring and control devices that are part of the emerging Internet of Things. Nivis' Smart Object platform is a fusion of firmware, hardware and software that allows integrators to swiftly build products that are seamlessly and transparently part of the Internet of Things.

The secure platform is entirely standards based and offers 6LoWPAN and IPv6 connectivity, as well as COAP based web services that reach all the way to the Smart Object endpoint. The wireless communication is compliant to the IEEE 802.15.4g standard and operates in the sub-GHz wireless spectrum, allowing for extended range even in dense urban environments. It also utilizes IEEE 802.15.4e TSCH compliant frequency diversity and time division. Combined with path diversity that is compliant to the IETF RPL routing protocol, the platform exhibits unsurpassed reliability and robustness to interference. The highly scalable platform allows for deployment of networks consisting of thousands of Smart Objects, resulting in minimal infrastructure cost overhead.

The Smart Object communication stack is offered in conjunction with the VN400 Smart Object module and the VR1000 "Quark" Edge Router. It is the world's first IEEE 802.15.4g frequency hopping compliant product line to pass regulatory compliance in the US, Canada, Japan and EU.

"The emerging Internet of Things will have a profound impact on our society as well as on the way we conduct business. Nivis' Smart Object platform was architected and designed to allow vendors to rapidly create products that will be part of the Internet of Things," said Doug Johns, CEO of Nivis.

By accommodating both line and battery operated Smart Objects the platform targets a wide gamut of applications ranging from Smart Metering (electric, water and gas), Smart Lighting and Smart City related applications to environmental and agricultural monitoring and control.

A low complexity API allows vendors to map monitoring and control parameters into COAP web resources or to exchange UDP datagrams.
