Voyager Brings NAT and Dynamic Discovery to iPhone, Android, and M2M Networks

Voyager 8, a pervasive application platform that brings Network Address Translation (NAT) and dynamic discovery to all of today’s most popular platforms, including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Microsoft .NET and Compact Framework (CF), JEE, and 15 embedded platforms. The RC3 release enables ad hoc, decentralized, location-based mobile communities spanning multiple fire-walled networks without the requirement of a centralized server in the cloud, the enterprise or the home.

Recursion Software, a provider of next-generation software platforms and intelligent middleware, announced Release Candidate 3 of Voyager 8, a pervasive application platform that brings Network Address Translation (NAT) and dynamic discovery to all of today’s most popular platforms, including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Microsoft .NET and Compact Framework (CF), JEE, and 15 embedded platforms. This addition will enable device-2-device, device-2-device group and device-2-enterprise applications to seamlessly span multiple wireless networks without firewall restrictions. Additionally, it will also allow for ad-hoc discovery of devices within wireless and wired networks, without the requirement of a centralized server in the cloud, the enterprise or the home. This capability is essential in developing advanced applications that will seamlessly share information and content across all devices, systems and networks that consumers, professionals and government agencies alike utilize on a daily basis.

This addition of NAT support is unique among application platforms, which are commonly resigned to using public IP addresses for all devices, and/or tunneling over a static IP/port, due to varying firewall requirements. These solutions are rigid, susceptible to security violations and/or suffer from performance issues. Similarly, today’s application platforms require registering and often have all information pass through a centralized server in order for devices or group of devices to participate in the same application. Advanced applications cannot be so restrictive, and must allow for decentralized participation as the number of devices we utilize on a daily basis continues to explode, along with our desire for these devices to dynamically share information and content.

“The ‘Internet Of Things’ is upon us and organizations across many industries are seeing enormous opportunities to build applications that allow information and content to be shared from the cloud down to the sensor, all in real-time”, says Bob DeAnna, CTO of Recursion Software. “To effectively build applications that span all devices, networks and protocols, there is the need for a sophisticated pervasive software platform with universal APIs for accessing, hosting and dynamically discovering application services, devices and device groups. We have positioned Voyager as the platform that will allow such advanced applications to efficiently gather, process, service and seamlessly distribute information and content generated from the Internet of Things that are part of our enterprise, home and mobile environments without drowning our networks.”
