NanoService: A Platform for the Internet of Things

"NanoService platform handles application delivery and management of embedded Web services that are part of machine-to-machine applications. 

The Internet of Things concept is drawing an increasing level of interest from manufacturers for a number of reasons, most notably its application in machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. (Access “Manufacturing and The Internet of Things” article to learn more.)
 To help manufacturers implement an Internet of Things architecture and begin reaping the benefits of the increased manufacturing intelligence it can provide, Sensinode has released its NanoService platform for delivery and support of applications for the embedded Web. Sensinode is a developer of commercial 6LoWPAN and related IPv6 technologies for the embedded Internet."

Nivis Launches New Smart Objects Networking Platform

"Platform Allows Any Device to Become Remotely Addressable via the Internet

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Oct 18, 2011) - Nivis, LLC, a global leader in Smart Grid and Industrial Wireless networks, today announced that it successfully demonstrated its new Smart Objects networking platform at the IPSO Alliance press reception, which was held at the Santa Clara TechMart. The new platform instills virtually any object with IP-based communication abilities, enabling a broad range of new applications in industries such as Smart metering, Smart lighting, Industrial Automation, Building Automation, Environmental Monitoring, and Healthcare Monitoring. The Nivis Smart Objects networking platform enables the Internet of Things concept championed by the IPSO Alliance. From Smart meters to Smart lighting and beyond, embedded systems are turning everyday things into Smart Objects capable of communication with the world around them. For Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) seeking to develop a Smart Object or Smart Object application, the learning curve for the networking component is an impediment to bringing a solution to market. Nivis reduces this learning curve with its Smart Objects networking platform, allowing OEMs to quickly incorporate the platform into their solution with reduced costs and faster time to market."

Research Paper: 6LoWPAN Stacks- A Survey by Yibo, Chen et al.

Sorry I couldn't access the publication at home but as the abstract mentions major implementations of 6lowpan i.e. uIP/ContikiSICSlowpan6lowpancliB6LoWPANBLIPNanoStack and Jennic's stack, I thought its worth sharing. /HM

6LoWPAN Stacks- A Survey by Yibo, Chen et al.
"Abstract: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is one of the key technologies of 21st century, while it is a very active and challenging research area. It seems that in the next coming year, thanks to 6LoWPAN, these wireless micro-sensors will be embedded in everywhere, because 6LoWPAN enables P2P connection between wireless nodes over IPv6. Nowadays different implementations of 6LoWPAN stacks are available so it is interesting to evaluate their performance in term of memory footprint and compliant with the RFC4919 and RFC4944. In this paper, we present a survey on the state-of-art of the current implementation of 6LoWPAN stacks such as uIP/Contiki, SICSlowpan, 6lowpancli, B6LoWPAN, BLIP, NanoStack and Jennic's stack. The key features of all these 6LoWPAN stacks will be established. Finally, we discuss the evolution of the current implementations of 6LoWPAN stacks."
