Several other protocols have been built on top of 802.15.4 including ISA100, WirelessHART and 6LoWPAN.
This technological revolution is being driven by rapid advancements in microelectronic technology in parallel with the emergence of low power communications protocols, such as ZigBee, Green Power, Bluetooth LE, and 6LowPan, which all operate within a peak power range of 10 [micro]W to 100 mW.
Devices of the perception layer are often limited in terms of process and data storage resources, and the applied technologies (such as RFID/NFC, Bluetooth, ZigBee and 6LoWPAN) are being limited in data transsmision range and rate.
With its patented technologies, the company provides next-generation wireless solutions designed for the multibillion dollar WLAN 802.11b/g/a/n/ac, MIMO, IoT / M2M, 802.15.4 / ZigBee, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, ANT, 6LoWPAN, AMR / AMI, and wireless audio/video streaming markets.
These devices can work with all popular wireless standards including ZigBee, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, ANT, 6LoWPAN and other generic ISM or proprietary radios.
We have chosen EnVerv's technology due to its superior performance under difficult network conditions and the fact that all necessary modem components including line driver, physical layer (PHY), media access control (MAC) layer and 6LoWPAN network layer are all integrated in the EV8000 single-chip SoC, said Eduardo Neri, Director of Engineering at IUSA.
The sensors support Contiki OS [25], an open-source operating system for the IoT, which connects tiny, low-cost, low-power microcontrollers to the Internet and supports IPv6 through 6LowPAN. It is worth noting that each mote can operate as either a source or a sink node.
