LN Systems announces the JenNet Network Topology Monitoring library (NTMon), designed for for systems using Jennic's JenNet/Jenie protocol stack. NTMon provides a powerful yet unobtrusive means to assess and optimise the placement of routing nodes, for both long term monitoring as well as pre-installation site survey.
NTMon operates in the background across the whole network and not only monitors and reports the active JenNet routes and network topology, but also gathers link quality data for all nearby nodes even if they are not actual child/parent nodes.
NTMon is easily incorporated into JenNet JN5139/48 applications, requiring only 5KB of memory. Configuration parameters allow its operation to be tailored to co-exist seamlessly with the application protocol. The NTMon library and support collaterals are available for royalty-free licensing, together with a time-limited evaluation version, including example applications for Jennic evaluation boards (or similar hardware) together with PC analysis tool.
LN Systems have a proven history of product development using Jennic JN51xx modules in a wide range of applications ranging from consumer to industrial. We are an accredited JADE partner with experience of ultra low-power hardware and software design at the 802.15.4 MAC protocol level as well as via the Jenie/JenNet network stack. Our expertise also encompasses the ZigBee/ZigBee PRO standard.
