Companies Provide an OSGi-Based Integration of DECT ULE for Smart Home and Internet of Things
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, and ProSyst, a leading provider of OSGi and open standards-based M2M middleware for Smart Home, Smart Energy and Automotive Telematics, announced today that the companies have jointly integrated DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) home security, control and automation solutions into ProSyst's mBS OSGi technology, thus providing a simple encapsulated gateway software environment with DECT ULE support. This solution dramatically reduces time to market and eases integration of DECT ULE capabilities for operators and service providers.
As part of this collaboration, DSP Group provided the semiconductor system, consisting of the DECT ULE gateway module powered by DSP Group's DECT baseband IC and a full DECT ULE stack. This system was integrated with ProSyst's mBS OSGi technology, providing local management and easy connectivity to the service provider. The devices built around DSP Group's DECT ULE IC and software stack are aligned with the latest DECT ULE and upper layer protocol standard draft. ProSyst's mBS OSGi design enables fast time to market, and minimizes the R&D effort required for the integration of DECT ULE based Smart Home and Smart Energy features into the gateways. The resulting system, the world's first DECT ULE/OSGi solution, is currently showcased at the CES 2013 exhibition in Las Vegas.
"By providing a simple, clean and standardized OSGi environment for gateway manufacturers, operators and service providers, we accelerate and facilitate the integration of advanced solutions and services and allow generation of new revenue streams at low cost and low risk," said Daniel Schellhoss, Executive VP at ProSyst. "The integration of DECT ULE technology into our product offering enhances simple and straightforward management of devices and application networks. It's been our pleasure to work with DSP Group, the market leader for DECT ULE technology, to achieve this goal," he concluded.
"We are delighted to partner with an OSGi market leader such as ProSyst to provide a robust platform for gateway ODM's and their customers," said Jan Abelev, Corporate Vice President of Product Management at DSP Group. "We see DECT ULE integrated into the OSGi framework as an excellent vehicle to allow operators to bring advanced home automation and security services to market more rapidly," he continued.
