Telit entered on Tuesday into an integration agreement with Libelium, a vendor of design and manufacturing of wireless sensor network hardware that will blend Libelium IoT hardware and Telit IoT services to reduce time-to-market for IoT deployments.
With this collaboration, users can now connect sensors to the cloud in three steps including choosing from Libelium’s portfolio of over 110 different Waspmote Plug and Sense! Sensors; using Meshlium IoT gateways and the embedded Telit Cloud Connector to receive sensor data and forward it to the internet via Ethernet or 4G/3G/GPRS protocols; and creating a free Telit IoT Portal account. Users can develop mobile and web-based apps or integrate any back-office databases or analytics systems with data collected from the Libelium Waspmote IoT Ecosystem.
As a part of this new collaboration, Telit and Libelium will be offering a fully integrated sensor-to-cloud solution on Libelium’s click-and-buy online store, the IoT Marketplace. This combination of Telit IoT services and Libelium gateways and sensor devices placed together in an easy-to-use integration kit simplifies the IoT implementation process for enterprises both large and small.
The development kit is currently available for purchase in European, American, Australian, and Brazilian versions.
The Telit IoT Portal is a cloud-based IoT subscription service, powered by Telit’s deviceWISE IoT Platform. The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) features a low cost pay-as-you-go service plan that lets you get started without any upfront investment.
Telit’s do-it-yourself cloud service enables instant access to all the necessary tools and resources for all Telit Services, and lets you create and manage your own IoT solutions from a single, intuitive web interface.
“Our collaboration with Libelium is all about making it easier than ever for companies to implement an end-to-end IoT Solution,” said John Keever, CTO and founder of Telit IoT Platforms. “We accomplish this by combining Libelium’s Meshlium Gateway technology with the Telit IoT Portal, creating a powerful combination of technologies to reduce the risk, time-to-market, complexity and cost of deploying complete end-to-end IoT solutions.”
The Meshlium Gateways act as a central access point for Libelium’s portfolio of wireless network sensors which are useful for collecting data in any scenario, including smart parking, air and noise pollution, irrigation control, vineyard monitoring, and more.
The Meshlium Gateway offers smartphone, cellular, and hands-free mobile phone detection, useful for gaining business intelligence through the measurement of people and cars with the goal of enhancing user experience in shopping areas and roads.
“Our Waspmote IoT ecosystem is designed for interoperability, giving developers access to the widest range of sensors, communication protocols, and cloud systems to build IoT applications quickly and safely,” said Alicia Asín, CEO at Libelium. “Telit is a valuable partner of this ecosystem designed to create a truly end-to-end IoT integration experience for the market.”
