"Texas Instruments has introduced new sub-1 GHz 6LoWPAN solutions that are designed to be a gateway for remote, low-cost wireless sensors to connect to the Internet and a wireless extension of wired IPv6 infrastructures.

Operating in the sub-1GHz band, TI’s 6LoWPAN solutions support large-scale mesh networks and are suitable for applications such as Smart Grid, security, home and building automation, street lighting and other wireless sensor networks. The new product family includes the CC1180 network processor, CC430 system-on-chip (SoC) microcontrollers, 6LoWPAN software stack, and CC-6LOWPAN-DK-868 development kit.

As plug-and-play solutions, TI’s 6LoWPAN devices require little RF expertise and can be set up using standard IP socket programming to add wireless and internet connectivity to networks. They support hundreds of hops, enabling the development of wireless mesh networks with large network depth using only one gateway. "
