The wireless problems faced by M2M (Machine-to-Machine) service providers is soon to be a thing of the past, according to Xsilon.   The British based M2M solutions developer is promising a new M2M wireless communication platform that will resolve today’s wireless M2M communications issues. The solution is called HANADU and will allow service providers and equipment vendors to overcome wireless obstacles such as deadspots and difficulty penetrating outside walls.

Xsilon branded HANADU the “Whole-Home, Every Home” connectivity solution. They said unlike other M2M wireless home solutions that were adapted  for home use, HANADU was design for its purpose and build from the ground up.  At its core said Xsilon HANADU offers superior performance within the home and is compatible wit all legacy in-home technologies.

HANADU supports mainstream networking standards such as IPv6, 6LowPAN, Weightless, Home Automation Profile 1.1 and Smart Energy Profile 2.0. It can work as the sole connectivity solution within a home or with complementary wireless or wired solutions.

Xsilon will begin delivering its product roadmap based on HANADU technology, later this year. Its first product due early Q3 is the HAN9000 Connectivity Evaluation Kit (CEK).  It will allow vendors and service providers to evaluate the connectivity advantages based on HANADU.  Xsilon said their second connectivity product will be the HAN1250 Module (due to launch in 2013).  The HAN1250 according to Xsilon will address issues such as home energy management, smart meter connectivity and connected health services.

Xsilon said they are currently designing dual mode HANADU solutions that will allow for deep integration with other connectivity solutions such as Zigbee, Ethernet and WiFi (802.11).
