In addition, Xanboo evaluated existing remote management software systems for OSGi gateway management to be able to offer an end to end solution for its customers.

Xanboo Remote Monitor Service: Be there. Even if you´re not.

Founded in 1999, Xanboo was an early pioneer in the development of remote access to video, as well as sensing and control devices over the Internet. Xanboo holds a number of patents on currently employed technology related to the gateway as a service broker, automatic registration of devices, and communication with wireless devices. A complete listing of these patents can be found at Xanboo's website. Xanboo is a privately held company. Its investors include Motorola and AT&T.


The Device
In addition to being the local service broker for the Xanboo system, the Xanboo X1000 gateway is also a low cost, plug ´n´play, and the most user friendly OSGi applications gateway available today.
