Grid2Home Certified ZigBee IP Implementation Available for Product Integration

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Grid2Home, a leader in Smart Energy Profile 2.0 (SEP 2.0) communication technologies, today announced that they have achieved ZigBee IP certification, a new standard that will enable the Internet of Things on low powered mesh wireless networks.

"The availability of the ZigBee IP standard is a major milestone in development of the Internet of Things as it leverages standard Internet protocols such as IPv6, 6LoWPAN, PANA, TCP, TLS, and UDP," said Don Sturek, Grid2Home's CTO and Chair of the ZigBee IP Working Group. "ZigBee IP, also called ZIP, is a foundational element of the newly released SEP 2.0 specification for 802.15.4 radio interfaces."

Grid2Home's implementation of the ZigBee IP standard, G2H-ZIP, is available today for porting to a wide range of qualified platforms. The solution integrates seamlessly across the range of embedded Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) to high level Operating Systems such as Linux. The G2H-ZIP solution operates with a multitude of ZigBee silicon solutions making it truly device independent. Its compact size makes its suitable for low cost embedded solutions and its portability allows efficient operation in complex gateways and home servers.

Also available is G2H-SE2 Software, which complies with the newly released SEP 2.0 specification, is interoperable across a wide range of devices and has been ported to multiple hardware platforms and physical layers including Wi-Fi, ZigBee and PLC variants such as G3-PLC and HomePlug-GP.
