Evoluzione della Rete
• Web 1: I dati sono delocalizzati
• Web 2.0: Dati e le applicazioni sono
delocalizzate, emergono i network sociali
• Internet of Things
Le componenti del sistema sono delocalizzate
ed emergono network misti persone/macchine
(ad autonomia crescente).
La SFIDA è quella di connettere in Rete larga
parte del mondo ﬁsico.
Internet delle Cose
• Per quanto Internet sia pervasiva, oggi il
numero degli oggetti/device connessi alla
Rete è ridicolmente inferiore rispetto al
numero degli oggetti NON connessi.
La prossima rivoluzione del mercato sarà
data dalla necessità di sostituire gli oggetti
non connessi nonché di collegare in Internet
Reti di Sensori.
Next Big Thing
Mobilità avanzata: iPhone / Android

Network divengono portatori sani
Oggetti e Sensori Connessi alla Rete,
evolvono in una enorme rete RealTime

MSNBC Hurricane Maps
An interactive hurricane tracker, built with MSNBC's Paige West to track major storms. Built using
Modest Maps and Microsoft's excellent Virtual Earth tiles, the project allows for interactive
investigation of both live and historical hurricane paths, wind speeds, and forecasted routes.
Oakland Crimespotting is an interactive map of crimes in Oakland and a tool for understanding crime in cities.
If you hear sirens in your neighborhood, you should know why. Crimespotting makes this possible with interactive
maps, e-mail updates, and RSS feeds of crimes in areas that you care about.

General Company Description
MISSION: Enabling device monitoring &
remote management (it include payments).
VISION: Internet of Things. Ten connected
devices for person everywhere on the
planet by 2011.
MARKET PRIORITIES: Clean Tech, Energy
Utilities, Emergent Metering.
Core Products and Services
WideSpime is a fault tolerant, distributed and scalable monitoring system.
It allows the collection of signiﬁcant amount of data (metering), which enables near
real time monitoring and management.
WideSpime can be customized and sold as standalone monitoring system for speciﬁc
clients’ needs, or packaged as SaaS in domains such as energy metering for small to
medium Power & Utilities companies.
The WideSpime platform is optimized for extremely large sensor
networks and distributed parallel data processing.
WidePos is a standalone or WideSpime-embeddable service that enables automated
credit card transactions of devices. WidePOS can be customized and sold as speciﬁc
product in domains such as mobile ticketing or micropayment services, or as an add-on
to WideSpime, for instance in pay-per-use monitoring systems.
WideSpime, MultiCore Programming
WideSpime is written in Erlang (http://erlang.org), developed by the Ericsson Computer Science Laboratory (1986)
• battle-tested in real large scale industrial products
• high concurrency [parallel processes - functional]
• truly distributed platform [message passing]
• fast on multicore servers
• fault tolerant [Erlang ﬂagship project: 99.9999999% uptime ~
downtime 5.2 min/year]
We have already experienced a consistent shift in hardware trends, moving from single CPU to multiple core
machines.This in necessary as single CPU speeds have inevitably leveled out.
The shift from single to multiple core and the need for fault tolerant, distributed and scalable systems will have to
be undertaken by concrete efforts in software optimization and programming techniques in order to fully unleash
the power of new hardware solutions and to satisfy the requirements of Internet of Things.

Mobile & iPhone
Custom development of mobile and iPhone’s applications.
These can be sold as standalone or as part of more
complex systems which may have WideSpime or WidePOS
Consulting & prototyping
Consulting in the design of Web2.0 and Internet Of Things
oriented services and architectures, and the ability to
provide prototypes of internet-enabled hardware devices.
A key value is our protocol OpenSpime that we plan to
extend to support P2P as network infrastructure.
WideNoise to let all familiarize with the
concept of spimes
What is WideNoise? It is an OpenSpime inspired iPhone application. With WideNoise you can
monitor the noise levels around you, everywhere you go. You can also check the online map to
see the average sound level of the area around you. Do you live in a “sleeping cat area” or in a
more noisy “rock concert area”?
We hope that WideNoise will be successful in illustrating with its example a series of possible
applications on the iPhone, which is a wonderful, human powered and dispersed spime.
