During a recent event held at the famous San Jose City Hall, Silver Spring Network launched its newest offering: Starfish – an international wireless IPv6 network service for IoT.
It’s not the first time when it has come up with a device that’s focused on the internet of things technology. Silver Spring has successfully delivered over 22 million connected devices supporting Internet of Things networks across five continents.
With the help of the newly launched Starfish Wireless IPv6 Network service for IoT, different smart cities, commercial enterprises, utilities and many developers will be able to access secure and reliable Internet of Things services equipped with the SLAs (service level agreements) that can live up to their expectations.
Starfish builds on the open IEEE 802.15.4g wireless interoperability standard (Wi-SUN) and raises the bar on what should be expected from an IoT network by delivering up to 1.2 Mbps in speed, 10 millisecond latency, up to 50 miles in point-to-point range, nearly limitless mesh range, multiple network transports, and industrial-grade security, reliability, and scalability. Starfish will also provide world-class device and application management and control functions, an IoT-scale data platform, and access to one of the industry’s largest open partner ecosystems.
As part of Starfish’s larger set of tiered service offerings, Silver Spring also introduced the Haiku™ service plan, which will deliver 5000 messages x 16 bytes per month for free, ideal for users with smaller data needs who wish to access a proven IoT service.
At first, it’s likely to hit European cities of Copenhagen, Bristol and Glasgow, North American cities like Chicago, San Jose and San Antonio, and the Indian city of Kolkata. Going forward, Spring Network looks forward to expanding the IoT coverage of Starfish across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
Along with Starfish, Silver Spring also announced an IoT Hackathon Series 2016 planned for different cities like Bristol, Chicago, Kolkata, Copenhagen, Singapore and San Jose. Click here to know more about this announcement and other upcoming projects of Silver Spring.
