ARM acquires Sensinode

Finnish Internet of things (IoT) software company Sensinode Oy is now a part of ARM, the latter announced recently. Sensinode has been a key contributor to the IETF, ETSI, ZigBee IP and OMA standardisation efforts, as well as led the creation of the 6LoWPAN and CoAP standards for low cost low power devices. The NanoService and NanoStack products from Sensinode will continue to be offered by ARM to new and existing customers.

The IoT is the next evolution of the Internet where products of all types and capabilities are connected. IMS Research forecasts that there will be 30 billion connected devices by 2020. The ARM Cortex family of processors and collaborative mbed project, together with Sensinode's NanoStack and NanoService offering, provide the ideal foundation for thousands of new applications including wireless sensors, smart connected appliances, home health applications, and wearable electronics. The technology is also applicable to M2M applications using cellular connections and the new OMA Lightweight M2M standard for device management.

The proliferation of these open standards will be accelerated through the ARM mbed project. mbed is an industry collaboration to deliver fundamental open source hardware and software building blocks for rapid development of intelligent connected devices. This includes support for microcontrollers, radios, peripherals, middleware and cloud services. Adding Sensinode's technology will enable developers to easily create IoT applications incorporating and supporting these open standards.
