Libelium Sensors Connect with Cloud Platforms for the Internet of Things
Libelium today added new integration options from leading Cloud technology providers in the latest stage of the build-out of its Waspmote wireless sensor platform ecosystem, to reduce time to market for Internet of Things solutions.
Demos showcasing Waspmote and Plug & Sense! nodes integrated with software platforms from Axeda, Esri, ThingWorx as well as the MQTT protocol will be rolled out at Dreamforce 2013 in San Francisco at Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain and at the Internet of Things & WSN Conference in Santa Clara, California. The new Cloud connector framework is based on a new managing system for Libelium’s Meshlium wireless sensor gateway, allowing easy configuration of any of these platforms. Existing Meshlium users are eligible for the upgrade.
Libelium has simplified the integration of leading Cloud software platforms to its Waspmote wireless sensor network platform, decreasing time to market for new IoT solutions. “Waspmote is a universal hardware platform for the Internet of Things because it is open and modular, and can integrate any sensor, using any communication protocol, and send retrieved data to any Cloud system for analysis or storage,” said David Gascón, CTO at Libelium. “Now we’re offering access to the best Cloud software platforms by streamlining the integration process, to connect the physical world to the virtual world and transform sensor data into information resources.” Waspmote Cloud Connector Software Ecosystem Additions – available separately.
- Axeda – The Axeda Machine Cloud offers an IoT and M2M platform to connect remote devices and assets, manage connected products, enable application development, and integrate machine data with enterprise business systems. Libelium’s Meshlium Sensor Network Gateway is easily configured with the new Meshlium Manager System to send machine data from Waspmote to the Axeda Machine Cloud for use.
- Esri – the ArcGIS technology platform provides information management tools, including maps, visualization analytics, geographic and demographic data / services accessible via desktop, browser, smartphone or tablet applications. Sensor data from Waspmote can directly integrate with existing maps and ArcGIS applications, to create and enhance IoT solutions with precise location and geospatial analysis tools.
- ThingWorx – a complete application design, runtime and intelligence platform for IoT and M2M applications. Developers can build, test and run their IoT and M2M applications with the ThingWorx rapid development platform using sensor data collected from Waspmote nodes and stored in Meshlium or structured and analyzed in the Cloud.
- MQTT – a simple, lightweight messaging protocol designed for constrained devices and low-bandwidth, high-latency networks where battery power is critical. MQTT is an emerging open standard widely deployed due to its bandwidth reduction and delivery assurance features: Waspmote data can be stored in any Cloud platform that uses this protocol.
