Sessions to Address Growing Demand for Users Implementing IP for Smart Objects
Colorado Springs, Colo. –Nov. 9, 2010 – The IPSO Alliance, the organization defining the “Internet of Things,” today announced a series of free technical webinars that will take a deep dive into why Internet Protocol (IP) is a long-lived, stable, and highly scalable communication technology that supports both a wide range of applications, devices, and underlying communication technologies. The three webinars will be 40-minute live sessions structured to give providers, integrators, device makers and others the technical information needed to optimize the use of IP for smart objects.
“IPSO has produced a number of whitepapers which provide an in-depth analysis of various IP topics,” said JP Vasseur, chairman of the Technical Advisory Board (TAB) committee. “The webinar track we put in place will provide a condensed technical overview of the essential information one needs to make the Internet of Things a reality.”
November 30, 2010 at 8:00AM PST-“6LoWPAN for IP Smart Objects,” will provide attendees information on where 6LoWPAN fits within the IPv6 architecture and to what scenarios it is applicable. The session will also focus on how 6LoWPAN efficiently transports IPv6 datagrams and the necessary services needed to maintain an IPv6 sub network.
December 14, 2010 at 8:00 AM PST- “RPL – The Routing Protocol for the Internet of Things,” will provide a technical overview of RPL, the routing protocol for IP smart object networks that has been specified by the IETF ROLL Working Group. The session will also provide an overview of applications of RPL such as smart grid and smart cities and an analysis of other use cases.
January 18, 2011 at 8:00 AM PST- “Embedded Web Services,” will cover how new standards are enabling embedded web services for even the most constrained IP smart objects and networks. Today web services are key to powering modern enterprise IT systems. Web service technology is playing an equally important role as IP smart objects are rapidly being integrated into backend systems in applications such as smart energy, building automation and asset management.
Attendees can ask questions at the end of the presentations.
