This JenNet-IP reminds me of ZigBee. I think they actually compete in many ways. They both offer mesh topology and the ZigBee-IP supports IPv6 also. The same IEEE 802.15.4 radio is used.
Seems that JenNet-IP is just different because its not a standard but a proprietary solution. I think a protocol being a proprietary one will have a tough time competing against a standard.
Though... what I see is a good move is that NXP open sourced it and it enables development in an inexpensive way by the GNU C/C++ tool chain for their chips, and under Eclipse IDE... nice!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
