We live in a data-driven economy where capturing, analyzing, and utilizing data provides a significant business advantage. The Internet of Things (IoT) has generated a lot of excitement across the industrialized world for this reason, and new systems are rolling out each day designed with the IoT in mind.
But what about the vast amounts of unconnected existing infrastructure? In my last post, I talked about the importance of gateways as a tool to connect legacy systems. Today, I’m pleased to share with you the story behind the latest Intel innovation for the IoT announced this week at IDF14 Shenzhen – Intel® Gateway Solutions for the IoT. We’re so excited about this new family of platforms that we took to Skype* to get the word out on how the product came to be, how it works, who it’s for, and the benefits to the marketplace.
Intel Gateway Solutions for the IoT is all about developing applications and services for the IoT and getting products to market faster. We developed the solution on open architectures to ensure interoperability between systems, wide application development, and easier services deployment.
- We started with scalable microprocessors for performance and low power. Customers have a choice of Intel® processors: Intel® Quark™ SoC X1000, Intel® Quark™ SoC X1020, and Intel® Atom™ processor E3826.
- We then added the Wind River Intelligent Device Platform (IDP) XT 2.0* development environment to communicate with and manage IoT devices.
- Lastly, we layered in McAfee Embedded Control* security technologies to ensure system integrity.
The result is an application-ready platform validated on industry-leading software. With the Intel Gateway Solutions for the IoT, there’s no need for an OEM to recreate the wheel by integrating an OS and security, or finding the right hardware. We’ve provided the core IoT building blocks that allow businesses to uncover key insights from their operational data that drive business efficiencies and the development of new value-added services. How will Intel gateway solutions transform your business?
