Sensinode NanoStack: reducing the complexity of the Internet
Sensinode's Nanoservice technology makes developing devices for the IoT much easier by reducing the complexity of the Internet and web-page protocols. It does so by using the 6LoWPAN standard, just like Thingsquare.
In addition to reducing the overhead, the standard minimizes power consumption and allows for low-bandwidth communication. This is done by compressing the large number of bytes normally used for headers down to only a mere seven. Additionally, Sensinode supports Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), which further allows end-to-end development of embedded smart systems.
Sensinode also offers the NanoStack, which uses IPv6 to allow low-power wireless devices to communicate over the Internet. Along with the NanoRouter that is capable of providing Internet routing to any location deployed, Sensinode's products can easily link together many devices running at low-power.

To advance Sensinode's technology and accelerate its growth along with the IoT's growth, ARM has recently acquired the company. "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, in a press release.
