Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON):
What: Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON), the world's leading
control networking platform provider, will host demos of its IzoT™
platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and of advanced
lighting control technologies at Light + Building, the world's biggest
trade fair for lighting and building-services technology.
Echelon demos will take place at three of its partners' booths:
Demo of Echelon's 'IzoT in a Box' (News - Alert) for the IIoT: In the LonMark
Germany booth, Echelon will showcase and take orders for its recently
introduced 'IzoT in a Box' FT 6000 Evaluation and Development Kit
(EVK), based on its IzoT platform for the IIoT. The EVK speeds
development of building automation devices using Echelon's
multiprotocol FT 6050 system on chip (SoC), which supports both
LonWorks® and BACnet® protocols over IP. The EVK contains all the
essential elements for creating, testing and deploying devices and
control applications for the IIoT.

Germany booth, Echelon OEM customer Distech Controls (www.distech-controls.eu)
will demonstrate its RCL Light/Blind Series lighting and sunblind
controllers-previously LonTalk-only products-using the IzoT-enabled FT
6050 SoC to support both native IP-addressed LonTalk over FT and
BACnet/IP over FT at the same time.
Demo of Lighting 2.0: Located in The Future Room in Xicato's (www.xicato.com)
massive booth, Echelon will showcase its proof of concept (PoC) for
