Onica announced on Monday launch of IoTanium, an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that is powered by Amazon Web Services, and is designed to facilitate the rapid development and deployment of IoT applications.
As a pre-integrated solution, IoTanium brings together a reference hardware platform, cohesive software package for building IoT applications and analytics, and professional services from Onica. Applications built on IoTanium can quickly and easily advance from proof of concept to customized, production-ready solutions in a fraction of the time.
IoTanium includes pre-integrated power and battery management, bootstrapping, provisioning, firmware updates, and connectivity via LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth to eliminate the undifferentiated heavy lifting of designing and building IoT hardware.
The board is designed to enable the rapid creation of pilot applications that can start consuming data on Day 1, while providing a pathway for the creation of a custom, production-ready, device based on the same electronics design and firmware as the pilot.
The IoTanium Platform is built entirely on AWS and pulls together 11 different AWS services including AWS IoT Core, AWS Greengrass, Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, and Amazon Kinesis. The platform was built to manage data ingestion, storage and analytics, and uses entirely serverless offerings from AWS. IoTanium uses native AWS services and as a result, benefits from the breadth, scale and reliability of AWS to deliver an advanced IoT platform.
According to Gartner, there were more than 8.4 billion connected devices in use in 2017 and there will be an estimated 20.4 billion connected devices by 2020. IoTanium provides a platform that integrates all of the essential components for the development and deployment of custom IoT solutions, supporting end-to-end data flow and lifecycle management, mobile and web application APIs, device management, and in-depth analytics.
IoTanium enables Onica to provide its customers with IoT solutions and connected products across several industries, including medical devices, media and entertainment, oil and gas, logistics, and connected homes, offices, and cities.
“With the accelerated pace of IoT adoption globally, businesses need solutions for rapidly building new applications that leverage connected devices to enable new revenue streams, drive efficiencies, and lower costs,” said Tolga Tarhan, CTO at Onica. “IoTanium is an end-to-end solution that gives businesses everything they need to develop and deploy IoT applications across a wide variety of use cases. This includes creating IoT solutions to command and control devices or collect data remotely; designing systems for performance monitoring and failure management; or using IoT data to improve the efficiency and reliability of engineering and manufacturing processes. With IoTanium, the opportunities are virtually endless.”
IoTanium Analytics leverages AWS IoT Analytics, Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR), Amazon SageMaker, and Onica’s Data Science Workbench to bring analytics and machine learning to IoT data. It enables the design and implementation of data pipelines, data lakes, and Machine Learning (ML) models by bringing together technologies that facilitate rapid data engineering and data science workflows for IoT applications.
“IoTanium is redefining the IoT journey by accelerating the development and deployment of cloud-based IoT applications and projects using a trusted and proven architecture,” said Mark Dodds, director for IoT and Edge Computing, Amazon Web Services.
“The most exciting thing was being able to leverage Onica’s expertise in AWS to build a product that works and is operating farms the way we need it to,” said Matt Vail, co-founder and COO, Local Roots Farms, an Onica customer.
