Libelium is moving the transparently networked world forward with its newly released Meshlium Xtreme multiprotocol wireless router—a global first according to the company. Meshlium Xtreme uniquely supports five wireless standards, namely Wi-Fi, ZigBee, GPRS, Bluetooth, GPS and wireline Ethernet, giving a wide choice of methods for connecting wireless sensor networks to the Internet. The product also supports the storage of the sensor data in its internal database system as well as with external Internet servers. Novel features include dynamic Wi-Fi frequency switching, a “discover and store” application for Bluetooth, an aluminum IP67 waterproof enclosure for harsh environments, special holders for attaching to oddly shaped locations and an optional solar panel kit for locations without a power source. The management interface is open source, and the product runs on Debian Linux.
The motto for Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, newly updated to version 5.1, is “turn the data you have into information customers can use”. New in version 5.1 is JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.1, an open-source data virtualization and integration platform that includes tools to create data services out of multiple data stores with different formats, presenting information to applications and business processes in an easy-to-use service. JBoss' net benefit, notes Red Hat, is that “data services become reusable assets across the enterprise and value chain, increasing return on data assets, enabling faster time-to-solution, and driving better business execution”. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1 includes Apache CXF Web services stack, JBoss Developer Studio 4.0, a technology preview of WS-BPEL, a technology preview of Apache Camel Gateway and updated certifications (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Windows 2008, IBM, JDK and more).
France's Dassault Systèmes says that the demand for its 2-D CAD software DraftSight to move to the Linux platform “has been overwhelming”, which made the latest release on Linux inevitable. This new version of the no-cost DraftSight, which now runs on Linux, Mac OS and Windows, allows users to create, edit and view DWG files. DraftSight features a light footprint, a dynamic community-support site, professional support and education-oriented packages. The program is available for download from Dassault Systèmes' Web site.
