Sensinode and Telenor Objects team up on Internet of Things

Sensinode, a provider of software that powers the
Internet of Things, announced its collaboration with the Telenor Objects unit
of the Telenor Group.

As per the agreement, Telenor Objects will add support
for Sensinode’s NanoServices solution to its Shepherd  Managed M2M
Services. Additionally, Sensinode has joined the Telenor Objects partner

The Shepherd platform is a cloud-based solution that
allows applications to monitor and control networks of connected objects, such
as GPS devices, temperature sensors and heart rate monitors, to give a few

Sensinode’s solutions enable development and support of
device networks built around the IPv6 protocol and Embedded Web Services. With
integration into Shepherd, connected objects that utilize 6LoWPAN and CoAP, the
IETF-standard for efficient IPv6 and M2M web services, can be readily
integrated into the Shepherd platform.

“Telenor Objects is commited to providing M2M
services with telecom network quality,” said Hans Christian Haugli, chief
executive officer of Telenor Objects.

“Every part of our service architecture must operate
with the robustness and reliability of traditional voice and data
communications, and provide a future-proof path based on concepts of open,
standards-based networks,” Haugli added.

The Sensinode NanoService solution provides end-to-end
web services optimized for the unique constraints of M2M deployments. It
provides a directory and semantic lookup of the web resources of each node,
provides transparent proxy services between the traditional large-resource
Internet and constrained-resource protocols, and supports an asynchronous push
model that is critical to the effectiveness of Embedded Web applications.

Sensinode provides NanoService Device
Libraries for C, C++, Java and Android based platforms, enabling rapid
integration of embedded devices with web applications.

Applications in the emerging Smart Grid, home monitoring
and security, eHealth, street lighting and many other industrial/consumer
segments involving wireless sensing and control are readily accommodated by the
Telenor Objects and Sensinode solution.
