Intel, Arduino and myDevices join the rapidly expanding Arm Pelion IoT Platform ecosystem

By Anasia D’mello

The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) presents a tremendous opportunity to disrupt the way we interact with devices and the world around us.

However, solving the complexity, fragmentation and diversity challenges of IoT devices and the data generated by them is not an easy task. Arm is addressing these challenges with our recently launched Arm Pelion IoT Platform with device-to-data connectivity, device and data management, enabling organisations to develop IoT superpowers and institute transformational change.

IoT requires a strong ecosystem of companies working together to deliver value, and one size does not fit all. IoT takes a village, and Arm is tapping into its leadership in building ecosystems by fostering a diverse team of partners to enable IoT to scale securely.

Today, following our recent collaboration with Sprint, who is leveraging Pelion, along with the Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA) as the foundation of their Curiosity IoT, we are announcing new strategic partnerships with Intel, myDevices and Arduino to deliver greater IoT flexibility, simplicity and scalability for organisations.

Any device, any cloud

True to the Pelion IoT Platform “Any device, any cloud” strategy, we are furthering our capabilities to support any device and any cloud by collaborating with Intel to remove IoT scaling barriers. Through the collaboration, our Pelion IoT Platform can onboard and manage Intel Architecture (x86) platforms, in addition to Arm-based IoT devices and gateways.

The combination of our Pelion Device Management with the Intel Secure Device Onboard (Intel SDO) service allows organisations to manufacture devices without any prior knowledge of end customer-specific onboarding credentials or even which application framework the end user will choose. This enables a more flexible cloud provisioning model and seeds a compatible base of Arm and Intel devices ready for management by the Arm Pelion IoT Platform, with onboarding into any application cloud.

This will shift the industry from siloed supply chains to a harmonised framework for the design and sourcing of secure, connectable devices. We believe this collaboration is a big step forward for greater customer choice, fewer device SKUs, higher volume and velocity through IoT supply chains and lower deployment cost.

In parallel, we are also announcing Mbed Linux OS, which builds on our Mbed OS – the providing IoT platform OS with more than 350,000 developers – by enabling secure and rapid development and device management of IoT devices based on Cortex-A.

Mbed Linux OS is integrated with our Pelion IoT Platform and will open up new classes of IoT devices that are easily managed through the platform, providing organisations with additional flexibility and faster time-to-market for complex applications, such as those processing video or edge gateways.

With Mbed Linux OS, Arm is providing a secure foundation that enables our partners and OEMs to focus on building amazing things. Developers can sign-up for early access here.

Turnkey IoT solutions for trusted insight

Furthering our commitment to scale IoT, we are partnering with myDevices to simplify device and solution onboarding and to increase the number of sensors, gateways, and solutions integrated with the Pelion IoT Platform that customers can leverage.

myDevices has partnered with numerous gateway and device manufacturers to create a robust ecosystem of LoRa-connected IoT solutions for specific vertical applications. myDevices’ IoT […]

IoTSWC 2018 awards Huawei, IoTerop-Synox, Nokia and Intel-ARM-Pelion for their innovative solutions

By Anasia D’mello

Huawei, IoTerop–Synox and Nokia were this year’s winning companies at the IoT Awards held at IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC), the providing international industrial internet event organised by Fira de Barcelona in recognition of the best projects developed in the field of the industrial internet throughout the last year.

Similarly, the solution jointly developed by Intel, ARM and Pelion enabling users to connect any IoT device to the cloud in a matter of seconds received the award for the best testbed at the show, which is being held for the fourth time until this afternoon at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue.

In the Business Transformation category the award went to the Huawei OceanConnect IoV (Internet of Vehicles) platform applied by the Groupe PSA car firm. This platform makes vehicles smart by transmitting data to the cloud securely, reliably and efficiently, transforms the service provided by car manufacturers and contributes to the development of smart transport.

The Industry Award went to the system for non-intrusive industrial monitoring at nuclear plants, based on smart cameras built by the IoTerop and Synox companies for Électricité de France EDF, the providing electricity generation and distribution company in France. This IoT solution is capable of managing assets and optimising the existing equipment and maintenance tasks at the EDF Golfech nuclear plant in real time.

Nokia’s “Sensing as a Service” project won the award in the Innovative Technology category. This is a platform developed for Cellcom, a regional wireless service provider in the USA, which collects and processes data from sensors in real time and sells it in a marketplace managed on the blockchain platform. The information collected includes environmental data and data for predicting anomalies in the industrial environment, controlling hardware and monitoring production plants.

The IoT Awards also presented an award to the best of the 10 testbeds exhibited this year at IoT Solutions World Congress. The jury decided that the winner was the solution developed by Intel, ARM and Pelion for Hitachi and Infosim, enabling its operators to plug in, connect and use any device on IoT platforms in a matter of seconds. This prototype is highly innovative, as it currently takes between 20 and 40 minutes to configure an IoT device and provision it in a cloud management system and, in most cases, prior configuration by the manufacturer or manual configuration by a qualified installer is required.

Among the finalist companies of this year’s IoT Awards were Serimag, Libelium, Tellmeplus, Witrac, Neuron Soundware, Huawei Technology, Dassault Systèmes and Nymea. The IoT Solutions Awards Gala was held in the Italian Pavilion at the Montjuïc venue and brought together the main actors in the international industrial internet field.
