NanoMesh Software Solution

nanomesh software solution graphicARM® Sensinode NanoMesh software solution is a field-proven communication stack for IP-based wireless sensor networks, based on 6LoWPAN technology. It includes two components:

NanoRouter 2.0

Sensinode NanoRouter 2.0 is a border router software solution that enables routing between IP-based 6LoWPAN low-power wireless networks and backbone IPv4 / IPv6 networks. In addition, NanoRouter 2.0 acts as the coordinator for RPL routing within a 6LoWPAN network. NanoRouter 2.0 offers scalable, reliable and seamless connectivity between the Internet and leading edge wireless sensor networks.

NanoStack Software

The NanoStack 2.x Library is the industry leading 6LoWPAN stack that provides an unrivaled feature set to include a compact source code base, optimal memory usage while remaining scalable and reliable. Additionally, the NanoStack can also be supplied with optional software modules for security, embedded web services (NanoServices) and a firmware update facility. The modular structure of the design makes it possible for ARM to accommodate most requirements.

When combined with the ARM Sensinode NanoRouter 6LoWPAN Access Point (AP) software, the NanoStack enables third-party developer to use the combined solution for most applications.
