October 9-11 at the RAI Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands
AALBORG Denmark, October 3rd, 2012 - RTX, a leading provider of wireless communications solutions, has today announced that it will demonstrate the capabilities and use of its Wi-Fi and DECT ULE modules with new cloud service partners at Smart Homes 2012 (www.smarthomes-europe.com), between 9-11 October at the RAI Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
RTX has designed and produced wireless modules for both Wi-Fi and DECT ULE that, together with its five new cloud service partners, aid the connectivity of things to data storage: this creates an eco-system that is helping to build the Internet of Things.
Using RTX modules with this built-in cloud connectivity makes it very easy to connect a sensor or other device to web- or intranet-based services. Data can thus easily be stored and post-processed, including alarm actions through text messaging or similar. For sensitive data, encryption and authentication mechanisms are readily available. Within hours of powering up an RTX Development Kit, data from a sensor, for example, can be displayed graphically and accessed world-wide on any device that has a standard browser
At the Smart Homes exhibition, RTX will be demonstrating how wireless modules can link "things" to the internet via two of these cloud service partners: Nabto (www.nabto.com) and Sensinode (www.sensinode.com).
· With the patented communication platform from Nabto, a built-in functionality on the RTX4100, you are automatically able to create a secure connection through a firewall and reach your Nabto enabled devices. Once you have connected your Nabto device to your local Wi-Fi network, you can communicate with your device from all over the world. Nabto also provides a WEB-server as small as 1 KB, and provides IOS and Android Apps, ready to go.
· Sensinode Ltd. provides graphical web applications for system integrators, OEMs and web developers to rapidly deploy M2M services to the connected home. At Smart Homes RTX shows how IPv6 provides easy access, control and administration of a connected home with sensors and actuators, independent of gateways.
Besides these web service partners, RTX has also formed partnerships with 2lemetry (www.2lemetry.com), Exosite (www.exosite.com) and Bug Labs (www.buglabs.net) from the USA - altogether they contribute to a multifaceted global eco-system of cloud partners and services.
"RTX is committed to IP-based wireless solutions, making it possible for sensors, appliances, and other systems to connect directly to the Internet - which is exactly what smart homes technology solutions depend on," says Jens Christian Lindof, Vice President of RTX. "The potential in cloud connected devices is almost unlimited, as forecasted by Cisco to 20B devices on the internet in 2020. By informing consumers and utilities providers about usage, price of and demand for power, water and so on, our integrated technology solutions will help to optimize consumption and minimize waste and unnecessary generation of greenhouse gases."
At the Smart Homes event RTX will be exhibiting on the CODICO stand #H02. CODICO, which has offices and distribution partners across Europe, is a key distribution partner of RTX.
Nabto offers a complete patented communication platform for end-users to achieve remote access to devices without firewall hassle. The footprint of the software can be as low as 1 Kb and can take form of a web-server. Nabto provides a simple way to address devices: serialnumber.vendor.com, even when the device is relocated or connected through different protocols such as LAN, Wi-Fi, etc. For more information see: www.nabto.com
