Date/Time:   Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30 PM

Abstract: This presentation introduces the Freescale smart wireless converged platform integrating with Oracle’s Java Embedded ME/SE technology to connect Smart Grid, Smart Home, Smart Buildings for m2M (machines-to-machines, machines-to-Mankind) using Zigbee-based 802.15.4 wireless sensor network (WSN).

The last-mile of smart Grid integrating smart meters, smart home/building’s Home Area Network (HAN) using 8308nSG for home energy management and Neighborhood Area Network (NAN) using multi-core P1025 Data Concentrator for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) are described.

This Internet of Things (IOT) can also be extended to various market segments such as building/factoring automation, safety/security and medical/health monitoring connecting the Zigbee wireless sensor network with the smart gateway and smart mobile devices for remote monitoring and control.
