Recently, Cascoda has introduced the first-ever IoT module that can eliminate the requirement of an IoT gateway. For this, the new IoT module combines the advanced IPv6 Thread protocol and the modern OCF security. As per the company, it has end-to-end security features of wide-area coverage and OCF- Open Connectivity Foundation technology.
The company has further stated that the introduction of this new module will create more opportunities to successfully deploy secured ultra-low-power IoT devices. As a result, the users can enjoy secured smart cities and building landscapes.
As per the information mentioned in the official statements, this new certified IoT platform has the open-source SDK- Software Development Kit. Besides, it also includes the world’s first module to provide the platform with an application layer and secure IP framework. It will function on the OCF’s secure cloud connectivity platform.
The robust features for the platform, for example, hardware tampering protection, cryptographic acceleration, RoT- Root of Trust, OCF’s security features, and more, have made it possible to acquire the UK as well as European IoT security attestation. The new platform is certified under the “IoT Security Assured Scheme.”
Cascoda CEO Bruno Johnson said that this would open up immense possibilities for energy-harvester and battery-powered IoT devices to work properly on the internet. On the other hand, it will also allow the companies to witness the power of advanced IoT security.
It will support a major goal of OCF, i.e., to promote better energy efficiency in BAS- Building Automation Systems as well as smart building infrastructure. Furthermore, the company claimed that it would eliminate the complexity and cost of deploying the IoT gateway.
The name of the new IoT module is Chili 2. As per the company, it has the latest transceiver modem of Cascoda, CA-8211. The modem’s receive sensitivity is -105dBm. Besides, it can effectively transmit power of +9 dBm. Furthermore, it has a +114 dB of link budget along with the TrustZone microcontroller developed based on the ARMC Cortex-M2 structure.
For Cascoda, this is a crucial step towards the implementation of a multi-standard and highly secure infrastructure that functions based on IP. Besides, it will also fulfill the IP-BLIS’s vision. Speaking about the IP-BLIS, it is a well-known market interest group that includes different organizations, such as Thread Group, DALI, KNX, OCF, and more. They work together to facilitate multi-standard and highly secure IP-based IoT infrastructure.
Mark Trayer from OCF said that this has opened up the possibility to use low-power devices on the mesh networks. Besides, they can effectively handle the applications. The devices now can leverage the trust factors of PKI- Public Key Infrastructure of OCF.
The organizations can now deploy the devices without worrying about the limitation. In fact, they don’t have to sacrifice the security features of the network. For instance, now the smart street lighting control system can be effectively scaled up to be worked with other public services, like traffic monitoring and air quality monitoring.
On the other hand, companies can also enjoy permission-based access, and they can easily view the data through their applications.
