6loWPAN wireless mesh communications targets the energy market

October 08, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Connode AB has announced its latest generation of all-IP products for the energy market. Connode 4 is a break-through, industry-first platform that will start shipping in volume during 2013.

Connode wireless mesh communications technology is already one of the prime alternatives for smart metering in Europe due to its proven ability to meet very high requirements on lifecycle cost and performance. Connode 4 is the all-IP upgrade of the Connode platform, used for Smart Metering communications and other advanced machine-to-machine applications. It features a true IP-based portable software architecture and is designed to use a new generation of frequency-agile radio-chipsets with much improved data-rates and reach.

Connode 4 provides IP-based interoperability and global standardisation to a utility sector that has been characterised and hampered by legacy, industry-specific protocols and lack of true interoperability.
