Radiocrafts has just released a new version of the RIIM SDK which supports various new benefits, including:
- A New Dashboard
- Support for Multicasting
- Added Security
- Cloud Connected or Private Network Operation
You can download the RIIM SDK here.
A New RIIM Dashboard
The RIIM Dashboard is a tool which greatly simplifies the installation and operation of a wireless mesh network to ensure that every single node has the fullest and most effective connectivity possible in the network.
You now have the possibility to directly see the link strengths between the nodes in the network using easy to use interactive graphics.
The new dashboard is available for download for both Windows and Linux, here.
Support For Multicasting
It is now possible to send data messages to all nodes in the network at once. This eases situations where you want to send the same message to a lot of nodes at once. This is useful if you want to update a parameter in the whole network at once, for example.
RIIM includes low level encryption by default. Your wireless network is protected by encryption using a pre-shared key. This encryption works on the link layer, and will therefore protect against eavesdropping, rouge nodes joining an existing network and fake packets.
The pre-shared keys are programmed during installation or production. All nodes have the same pre-shared key.
Cloud Connected or Private network Operation
RIIM supports two modes of operation, cloud connectivity over internet and the option to run RIIM as a private network.
We have also updated existing documentation to reflect the new RIIM SDK. These documents include:
- RIIM Dashboard User Manual (download)
- RIIM SDK Quick Start (download)
- RIIM SDK User Manual (download)
- RIIM User Manual (download)
We recommend that you buy a development kit in your early stage product evaluation. The development kits are designed to be easy to use and to very quickly support a wireless link or network, where you can make a good analysis of the network performance.
