Business Wire

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom -- August 27, 2013

ARM today announced that it has acquired Sensinode Oy, a provider of software
technology for the Internet of things (IoT). The privately-held company has
led the creation of the 6LoWPAN and CoAP standards for low cost low power
devices, and has been a key contributor to the IETF, ZigBee IP, ETSI and OMA
standardization efforts. ARM will continue the commercial offering of
Sensinode’s NanoStack and NanoService products to existing and new 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.

“ARM is dedicated to enabling a standards-based Internet of Things where
billions of devices of all types and capabilities are connected through
interoperable Internet Protocols and Web Services,” said John Cornish,
executive vice president and general manager, System Design Division, ARM.
“Sensinode is a pioneer in software for low cost low power internet connected
devices and has been a key contributor to open standards for IoT. By making
Sensinode expertise and technology accessible to the ARM Partnership and
through the ARM mbed project we will enable rapid deployment of thousands of
new and innovative IoT applications.”

“Sensinode is a leader in the definition and implementation of new standards
and products for connecting large numbers of low cost low power devices to the
Internet,” said Adam Gould, CEO of Sensinode. “The ARM architecture together
with Sensinode’s software technology covering 6LoWPAN, CoAP, and OMA
Lightweight M2M with advanced security will provide a compelling solution for
Internet of Things developers.”
