Tridium’s Sedona Framework enabled by Jennic 6LoWPAN Stack and Wireless Microcontrollers
Jennic has announced that its 6LoWPAN software stack and wireless microcontrollers are enabling Tridium’s new ground-breaking Sedona Framework to add low-cost wireless IP-connectivity to a wide range of sensors and actuators in M2M applications.
Today, the platform is being adopted by market leaders from multiple industries including the medical equipment and plant controller segments. In addition, Belimo and Tridium are cooperating on the development of an actuator using the technology.
Wireless communication is essential for lowering the costs of automation and expanding the market commented Steve Fey, President of Tridium. Jennic's visionary wireless microcontroller coupled with its wireless IP-based 6LoWPAN network layer has allowed us to create the Sedona Framework platform at price and performance levels which were previously unthinkable.
The Sedona Framework was recently awarded the 2008 ‘Digie’ Award for Most Innovative and Best Use of Technology in the Building Technologies category at the Realcomm Conference in June.
Tridium have driven the capabilities of our 6LoWPAN and wireless microcontrollers to levels of integration and performance which are beyond even our expectations. With an estimated total market of 1bn units, I am certain that there are many more innovative applications for our 6LoWPAN stack and microcontrollers just waiting to be developed. commented Jim Lindop, CEO of Jennic Ltd.
