Intel has unveiled the Intel IoT Platform, a reference model designed to unify and simplify connectivity and security for the IoT.
Intel also introduced integrated hardware and software products based on the new platform and an expanded ecosystem of system integrators aiming to move IoT from infancy to mass deployment.
Accenture, Booz Allen Hamilton, Capgemini, Dell, HCL, NTT DATA, SAP, Tata Consultancy, Wipro and others are joining together with Intel to develop and deploy solutions using their building blocks on the Intel IoT Platform.
Intel is also delivering a roadmap of integrated hardware and software products to support the Intel IoT Platform. The roadmap includes API management and service creation software, edge-to-cloud connectivity and analytics, intelligent gateways, and a line of scalable IA processors.
It encompasses dedicated security products, as well as security features that are embedded into hardware and software products.
“With this platform we are continuing to expand our IoT product family beyond silicon with enhancements to our pre-integrated solutions that make IoT more accessible to solution providers,” said Doug Davis, vice president and general manager, Internet of Things Group, Intel.
“IoT is a rapidly growing market, but faces scalability hurdles. By simplifying the development process and making it easier to deploy new solutions that address market needs, we can help accelerate innovation.”
Intel IoT Gateways are currently available from seven ODMs with 13 more releasing systems in early 2015.
Intel is also expanding support for the Intel Analytics Service for IoT Developer Kits to include the Intel IoT Gateway DK series, in addition existing support for Galileo and Edison.The kit enables anomaly detection in time series data and is offered free of charge.
