November 15, 2007 Ellicott City, MD - The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory purchased the OCTAVEX Wireless Sensor Framework to accelerate development of wireless sensor networking technology at the lab.The unique technology of the Universal Gateway within the OCTAVEX Framework allows APL to use any type of wireless protocol or sensor type without having to create a software layer from the ground up. This flexibility allows APL to concentrate their time on building the underlying sensor technology and use the service oriented architecture (SOA) components of Octave software to better position their sensor-based products for commercialization and integration.The OCTAVEX Framework can simultaneously support any number of sensor points for different types of wireless protocols including mesh networks [Zigbee, WirelessHART or proprietary platforms], active RFID tags, point to point RF sensors, and other types of smart sensors. The integration of Octave software with APL sensor technologies and expertise will accelerate the timetable for developing commercially viable wireless sensors, and do so in a more flexible and cost effective manner.“New applications for wireless sensing technology are currently being created at APL,” said Robert D’Antonio, Ph.D., Executive Vice-President at Octave. About Octave Technology, Inc.Octave Technology builds leading edge software products for data management and integration of sensor technologies. Octave’s flagship product, the OCTAVEX Wireless Sensor Framework, is the world’s most complete and comprehensive software for extracting and analyzing information from any type of wireless sensor. The framework is designed to significantly decrease development time and lower costs and risks for software developers, systems integrators, end users, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who are building wireless sensor solutions.Octave is a privately held corporation headquartered in Ellicott City, Md.
