Partnership creates IoT gateways for smart home markets
Global Internet of Things (IoT) platform for manufacturers, Ayla Networks, has established a partnership with Develco Products, a white-label product development company based in Denmark. Develco Products will integrate Ayla IoT platform technologies into its IoT gateway solutions, with the goal of reducing time to market and costs for smart home, smart lighting and smart energy management manufacturers worldwide.
The Ayla IoT platform is supported by Develco Products’ Squik.Link Gateway, a modular all-in-one solution for connecting various smart home devices across disparate wireless protocols.
“By taking advantage of the Ayla IoT platform, Develco Products customers creating connected products can eliminate unnecessary development costs, reduce time to market and achieve even faster returns on their investments,” said Karsten Ries, CEO, Develco Products. “As a result, manufacturers can focus on optimising the features and functionality of their IoT products rather than spending time and money trying to master the complexities of IoT technologies.”
“Develco Products is one of the leading gateway providers in Europe, with unparalleled experience and number of deployed gateways across significant vertical markets,” said David Friedman, CEO and Co-founder, Ayla Networks. “Using Ayla-supported Develco Products gateways, manufacturers can leverage the combined Ayla IoT software and Develco Products IoT hardware expertise to launch reliable, secure and scalable connected products much more easily and cost-effectively.”
IoT gateways boost device efficiency, flexibility and scalability
IoT gateways provide an important alternative to installing WiFi or other wireless network protocols directly into each end-point IoT product. Gateways enable multiple small, low-cost or battery-powered IoT devices or sensors to use the gateway hardware technology to establish and control their wireless connection.
Both the Ayla and Develco Products IoT technologies are highly flexible and scalable. The Ayla IoT cloud fully integrates cloud-to-cloud services, including leading voice control services, and serves manufacturers globally through its cloud services in Europe, North America and China. Able to scale efficiently from tens to millions of devices, the Ayla-powered Develco Products gateway architecture can also adapt to future IoT technology requirements, as they arise.
Because the Ayla IoT cloud uses the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure, connected products leveraging Ayla-powered Develco Products IoT gateways will run on AWS and automatically benefit from the cloud infrastructure’s high availability, strong security and global reach.
More information on the Ayla IoT platform and the Develco Products IoT gateways will be available at Ayla’s booth in hall 4 / 4-668 at embedded world 2017, being held 14th-16th March at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg in Germany.
