A new class of embedded systems has emerged that are capable of interoperating natively with IP-connected devices.
January 01, 2009

“The Compact Application Protocol (CAP) is an open framework that combines the IP world with ZigBee technology, enabling users to operate devices produced by different vendors on existing networks without using an inefficient gateway translation layer.  With the increasing adoption and growth of embedded networking technologies such as IEEE 802.15.4 and 6LoWPAN, a new class of embedded systems has emerged. These are different from previous systems because they can interoperate natively with IP-connected devices (both IPv4 and IPv6). As vendors introduce more wireless products in the marketplace, an end-to-end framework for enabling standardized communications between those devices becomes critical. Although a number of IP-based solutions tailored for the network layer lend themselves to interoperability, few products target the application layer.”
