TI's CC2538 processor to offer three ZigBee standards for one end-device

Nov 19, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Texas Instruments Incorporated, or TI, has announced that the CC2538 ZigBee wireless network processor will offer the three ZigBee standards for one end-device: ZigBee Smart Energy, ZigBee Home Automation and ZigBee Light Link.

Now a single end-equipment can support these three standards, offering a seamless user experience with fast switching between each standard making it seem like concurrent operation. In turn, manufacturers of smart meters, home appliances, home gateways and connected lighting products are able to deliver quality of service, the company said.

The CC2538 ZigBee network processor and Z-Stack 2.5 with ZigBee and ZigBee PRO support offer the feature set, which can be tailored for specific end-device(s). With a CC2538-enabled device, consumers can network within their homes as well as monitor and interface to the smart grid to save money and energy. The CC2538 features IEEE 802.15.4 radio and a powerful ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller system. All security operations are handled by dedicated accelerators, leaving enough processing power and memory to handle multiple ZigBee standards concurrently, the company added.

"The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) requires ZigBee devices that can easily network with deployed ZigBee-enabled end-products for smart grid infrastructure, home automation and connected lighting networks. By delivering a ZigBee wireless network processor that supports the three most popular ZigBee standards, we are raising the bar for functionality and efficiency and enabling manufacturers' products to interoperate with the existing ZigBee devices on the market," said Oyvind Birkenes, general manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions, TI.

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
