Arrow Electronics aligns with VIMOC to offer IoT platform to smart buildings, factories, cities 

Arrow Electronics will offer VIMOC’s Rosella Artificial Intelligence landscape computing platform for applications ranging from smart factories to smart buildings, under the terms of a deal announced Monday.

The Rosella platform extends cloud computing down to the infrastructure by using an Artificial Intelligence (cognitive computing network) framework and edge computing to deliver real-time data processing that pushes processed “intelligence” to the cloud, rather than large amounts data. Rosella achieves a high level of operational efficiency, reducing the complexity, cost of integration, and eliminating the single point of failure.

VIMOC’s Rosella A.I. software extends cloud computing to the edge offering highly accurate, reliable and real-time intelligence for safety-critical applications and smart facilities. The Rosella software is based on a landscape computing topology allowing scalability to meet changing requirements. An open API provides analytics and business solutions that help increase security and infrastructure revenues.

Headquartered in Mountain View, California, VIMOC has developed the Rosella artificial intelligence platform, running across distributed edge computing nodes and the cloud. By extending cloud computing to the edge of the network, Rosella enables highly accurate data acquisition and classification with a robust, modular architecture. This offers new levels of real-time intelligence, empowering infrastructure operators and enterprises to realize the true promise of IoT.

Arrow serves as a supply channel partner for more than 125,000 original equipment manufacturers, contract manufacturers and commercial customers through a global network of more than 465 locations serving over 90 countries.

VIMOC’s Rosella IoT software stack is an end-to-end solution from the edge of the network to the cloud. This solution creates a seamless and robust link that allows infrastructure to drive applications. Rosella Embedded is a distributed software solution performing sensory data capture and processing at the edge of the network, while efficiently cooperating with other Rosella Embedded computing nodes and the Rosella Cloud. Each embedded software node performs data normalization, message parsing, edge processing pipeline and storage, with an extended framework for machine learning, vision processing etc.

Rosella Cloud is the software component which communicates with the Rosella Embedded computing nodes to authenticate and collect the intelligence produced by this network. This intelligence is presented via the Rosella API to enable advanced applications and services, including visualization, data mining/ analytics etc.

“Arrow’s vision towards end-to-end IoT solutions combined with our unique deep learning offering will accelerate our customers’ ability to address the many inefficiencies with today’s infrastructures and to increase their infrastructure asset value,” said Ali Sebt, president and chief marketing officer of VIMOC Technologies.

“Building owners and operators are looking to optimize revenue efficiency and improve the quality of experience between people and infrastructure,” said Aiden Mitchell, vice president of global IoT solutions at Arrow. “Arrow customers now have access to VIMOC’s deep-learning technology at the edge of the network to realize these intelligent infrastructure objectives.”
