Nivis LLC unleashes Smart Objects networking platform that enables any device to become remotely addressable via the Internet.

The platform claims to connect with any IP-enabled object, enabling a broad range of new applications in industries such as healthcare monitoring, smart lighting, smart metering, building automation, industrial automation, and environmental monitoring.

The Nivis Smart Objects networking platform enables the Internet of Things concept championed by the IPSO Alliance. From smart meters to smart lighting and beyond, embedded systems are turning everyday things into Smart Objects capable of communication with the world around them. For OEMs seeking to develop a Smart Object or Smart Object application, the learning curve for the networking component is an impediment to bringing a solution to market. Nivis reduces this learning curve with its Smart Objects networking platform, allowing OEMs to quickly incorporate the platform into their solution with reduced costs and faster time to market.

Nivis Smart Object Networking Platform features effortless integration with global sensing and control platforms that utilise Representational State Transfer (REST) applications such as Pachube; reliability of communications through path redundancy; NIST-recommended IPSec security; and low infrastructure costs with up to 4,000 end-points per edge router. It also complies with proven standards such as IPv6, RoLL/RPL, 6LoWPAN, 802.15.4e, 802.15.4g, and SNMP.

Components of the Nivis Smart Object Platform include communications stack, edge router hardware, network management software, software API libraries, RF modules, and development kit.

The Nivis Smart Objects networking platform will be available in the first quarter of 2012.
