Cambridge, MA— To bring new functionality and flexibility to the wireless sensor networking market, Millennial Net Inc. has released its 2.4-GHz i-Bean endpoints, routers and gateways. i-Beans are ultra-small, ultra-low power wireless sensor networking devices that run on coin bat-teries, and enable wireless sensor net-working anywhere. Millennial Net develops self-organizing, wireless sensor networks.

Millennial Net's 2.4GHz i-Beans complement its existing line of 434-MHz, 868-MHz and 916-MHz versions, and allow users to choose products for specific applications and critical requirements, such as network transmission distance, battery life, interference avoidance and compliance with regional radio regulations. Millennial Net's 2.4-GHz i-Beans are compliant with worldwide radio transmission regulations and give customers a single radio standard for global distribution.

g human administration and with very low power consumption.

'Development of the 2.4GHz i-Beans is consistent with our commitment to offer the most choice and flexibility in the OEM and systems integrator markets,' says Andy May, Millennial Net’s president and CEO. 'Our 2.4-GHz product allows our OEM and SI customers to maintain a single, global stock keeping unit (SKU) for their products while taking advantage of worldwide standards.'

i-Beans are self-contained, miniature computers with a built-in power source, flash memory and peripheral devices, including a digital I/O interface, A/D converter and a radio frequency (RF) transceiver for two-way communication. i-Beans also contain a serial interface to enable easy connection to existing sensors with RS-232 interfaces. i-Beans can transmit and receive data to a range of more than 30 meters. The radius of an i-Bean network can be extended to hundreds of meters by using wireless, battery-powered or ac-powered i-Bean routers.

The 2.4GHz i-Bean is available now in an Evaluation Kit for prototyping. The kit includes five i-Bean transmitter/receivers, three i-Bean Routers and one i-Bean Gateway, along with accompanying software and documentation.
