Dust Networks®, the leader in intelligent wireless sensor network solutions, today announced the availability of their new SmartMesh® IP wireless sensor network (WSN) evaluation kits. SmartMesh IP combines the reliability and ultra-low power of Dust Networks’ industrial products with native Internet Protocol (IP), for a robust, standards-based offering perfect for a broad range of applications
“Dust Networks’ TSMP technology was the foundational building block of the IEC62591 wireless standard that enabled explosive growth in the industrial wireless sensing market,” said Harry Forbes, Senior Analyst with ARC Advisory Group. “With their new IP-based product, enterprise customers can benefit from the same low power and reliability that industrial customers have relied on for years,” Forbes continued.
SmartMesh IP provides robust wire-free connectivity for applications where low power, reliability, and ease of deployment matter. With Dust Networks’ new Eterna™ 802.15.4e SoC technology, every node in a SmartMesh IP network will run on batteries for 10 years, or forever with an energy harvesting power source. Even a simple solar calculator cell can power a SmartMesh IP router in a busy network. The ability to put a sensor anywhere, without wiring, allows network deployments that do not disrupt a building’s operations or occupants. With built-in intelligence that enables the mesh network to self-form and self-maintain, SmartMesh systems are easily deployed by field technicians with no wireless technology expertise.
