Silicon Labs has released new dynamic multiprotocol software for its Wireless Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) and module portfolio, enabling simultaneous operation of Zigbee and Bluetooth low energy (LE) on a single SoC. This multiprotocol solution enables advanced functionality for Internet of Things (IoT) applications without incurring the additional complexity and hardware cost of a two-chip architecture. Dynamic multiprotocol software allows users to commission, update, control and monitor Zigbee mesh networks directly over Bluetooth with smartphone apps. The software also makes it easier to deploy scalable indoor location-based service infrastructure by extending Zigbee-based connected lighting and building automation systems with Bluetooth beacons.
ARM has released its product suite to deliver new levels of security, efficiency, low-power connectivity and device life cycle management for the Internet of Things (IoT). With new processors, radio technology, subsystems, end-to-end security and a cloud-based services platform, ARM is aiming to increase the rate at which IoT scales globally. As IoT technologies become more pervasive, it is time for a complete solution that secures data from the sensor to the service.
ARM is proposing is a common industry framework it calls the Platform Security Architecture, which lays out a secure foundation for every connected device.
IoTium, a secure network infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Relevant Solutions, a provider of critical service solutions, announced a strategic relationship to bring patented One-Click deployment to Relevant Solutions customers. Under the terms of the agreement, IoTium’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offering will be deployed alongside Relevant Solutions’ building automation and energy management products to enable real estate industries such as commercial, corporate, government, and institutional to securely connect legacy onsite building automation systems to greenfield cloud-based applications.
VMware announced a collaboration with SAP, aiming to create an integrated Internet of Things (IoT) solution that supports the implementation and management of IoT use cases across devices, infrastructure, edge, cloud and application domains. The goal is to enable fast deployment, scalability and on-schedule execution of IoT projects. With its family of VMware Pulse IoT solutions, VMware will offer enterprises a consistent infrastructure plane for all their IoT projects and a management solution to securely onboard, configure and monitor ‘things’.
Schneider Electric announced the introduction of EcoStruxure Building, an open, collaborative Internet of Things (IoT) platform for smart buildings. EcoStruxure Building is the latest addition to Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure, its IoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open architecture, which delivers end-to-end solutions in various domains of expertise for four end markets: building, data Center, industry and infrastructure. With an open architecture, developers, partners and customers can securely interact with and share data via SDK and API.
