Radiocrafts AS and Sensinode Ltd. announce the launch of a platform comprised of the IEEE 802.15.4-compliant radio modules combined with the 6LoWPAN compliant NanoStack, offering integrators super compressed IPv6 over low power radios in a compact module. The use of end-to-end open source IP technology over a proven radio platform provides a scalable system for IP-based monitoring and control systems like AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) and WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks). The NanoStack meets the 6LoWPAN (IPv6 over Low power WPAN) specifications released in 2007, and it offers a scalable and robust architecture for a wireless mesh network where all nodes cooperate to transport information almost like the Internet. The self-configuring and self-healing properties of the 6LoWPAN network offer redundancy and low maintenance cost.
