Sensinode Launches Worlds First M2M Cloud Stack Powered By Host Virtual

San Jose, CA, Oct 08, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- "Sensinode has been a technology pioneer in M2M, actively developing and promoting open standards as a member of the IETF, ZigBee Alliance, ETSI, OMA and the IPSO Alliance. Sensinode's technology enables the Internet of Things", said Sandy Bhargavi, Sr. Vice President of Host Virtual, Inc. "We're pleased to partner with them to deliver their software products on our worldwide IPv6 cloud platform." Sensinode provides end-to-end software products that extend IP and web services all the way to the end node, combining highly optimized embedded client software with a scalable management and web applications platform. Sensinode's software brings web services to the most demanding enterprise applications in the Internet of Things.

"Our technology brings M2M into the Web age; making embedded devices part of Web-based services has never been easier." said Zach Shelby, co-founder of Sensinode. "With Host Virtual we've made it even easier, with instant cloud deployment of M2M services on a world-class IPv6 infrastructure." To get started with an M2M roll-out, a customer simply goes to vr.org/sensinode, registers and begins deploying M2M appliances.

Using Sensinode deployed in the Host Virtual Cloud, customers can take advantage of the IETF Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), which enables web services for even the most constrained devices and networks while integrating with the web architecture and HTTP. CoAP is standardized by the IETF and optimized for applications such as Smart Energy, home and building automation, asset tracking and cellular M2M.

An Internet Protocol technology called 6LoWPAN makes the Internet of Things a reality together with CoAP. An IETF standard, 6LoWPAN optimizes IPv6 for use with low-power, low-bandwidth communication technologies such as IEEE 802.15.4. Typically, small sensor payloads of 15 bytes can mushroom to 500-600 bytes using HTTP and TCP. Using 6LoWPAN to compress the headers and CoAP at the application layer results in a streamlined 20 byte package; an improvement of 2 to 3 orders of magnitude.

"We're looking forward to our continued partnership with Sensinode as they innovate in M2M," said Sandy Bhargavi of Host Virtual.

The Host Virtual public cloud, available in the U.S, Europe and South Asia, allows customers to deploy servers in a minute with dual-stack, IPv4 and IPv6 capabilities. Over 300 pre-built operating system and appliance images are available.

Combined with advanced tools and services, such as BGP AnyCast, Load Balancing, and worldwide CDN support Host Virtual provides a seamless IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) base for its customers.

In addition to its public cloud options, Host Virtual compliments its services with managed cloud hosting, dedicated private/public clouds, white-label cloud solutions and cloud consulting.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
