Dust Networks SmartMesh IP Starter Kit Integrates with Xively Cloud Services to Speed Commercial Availability of Ultra-Low Power Connected Products
SANTA CLARA, CA – October 28, 2013 – Xively, a subsidiary of LogMeIn (NASDAQ: LOGM) and creator of the first public cloud platform for the commercial Internet of Things (IoT), and Linear Technology (NASDAQ:LLTC) today announced they have entered a partnership to accelerate the availability of ultra-low power cloud-connected products. By integrating Linear Technology’s Dust Networks SmartMesh IPTM wireless sensor networking Starter Kit with Xively Cloud Services, the companies are providing developers and OEMs with a highly cost-effective, end-to-end IoT solution, from initial prototyping and validation through wide-scale commercial deployment and management.
“We’re excited to team with LogMeIn and Xively to drive development of next-generation connected devices. Developers who use the SmartMesh IP Starter Kit with Xively’s IoT platform will get a cloud-enabled wireless sensor network with carrier-class reliability and ultra-low power consumption out-of-the-box, speeding time-to-pilot and reducing overall application development time,” said Ross Yu, Product Marketing Manager for Linear Technology’s Dust Networks.
“By partnering with Dust Networks, we’re making it easy for connected devices to be deployed anywhere data can be gleaned. Now, product builders and OEMs can leverage the Internet of Things for everything from smart parking and commercial building energy management to utility-scale solar plants and structural monitoring of bridges, tunnels and mines—and focus their time on their innovation instead of infrastructure,” said Mario Finocchiaro, Director of Business Development, Xively.
The SmartMesh IP wireless sensor network is built for Internet Protocol (IP) compatibility, and is based on the 6LoWPAN and 802.15.4e standards. SmartMesh IP networks deliver >99.999% data reliability and >10 year battery life, making it practical to deploy wireless sensor networks in the most challenging environments. The DC9000 Starter Kit now includes sample application code that allows a registered Xively user to simply connect the DC9000 kit to a web-connected computer, enabling the SmartMesh IP network to automatically be registered as a Xively “product,” and the nodes and sensors to securely send data to the user’s Xively cloud as “devices.”
The DC9000 SmartMesh IP Starter Kit provides all the tools necessary for evaluating the network performance of SmartMesh IP against the needs of an application, such as high reliability, bandwidth flexibility and ease of installation, and provides the components needed for device integration and application development.
