SANTA CLARA, CA — Ayla Networks’ new collection of capabilities for its IoT platform yields easier and more affordable ways to build IoT solutions that run over any cellular protocol, including low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) including Cat-M1 and NB-IoT.
The new collection includes:
· Four new device agents and modules for embedding cellular connectivity into edge devices: a Linux cellular agent; a cellular portable agent; cellular LPWAN production modules using SimCom and Quectel hardware; and a Qualcomm cellular IoT software development kit (SDK) collaboration
· Enhanced IoT cloud management over cellular network, being leveraged by Asia Pacific Telecom (APT) for this region’s NB-IoT projects
· An Ayla web SDK for rapid development of business applications that leverage cellular device data
These capabilities allow Ayla Networks to meet the requirements of reaching a large amount of customers with Wi-Fi connectivity for residential IoT applications, cellular connectivity for commercial applications and gateway products for industrial applications.
IoT devices will be able to leverage the Ayla platform features such as battery and data usage optimization running on low-power cellular networks.
The cellular IoT resources include an enhanced messaging architecture heightened for LPWAN networks’ data usage and regular data output. They also provide a device management platform that’s been improved by developing and deploying cellular devices at scale.
“These new cellular IoT capabilities provide yet another example of how the Ayla platform can speed time to market while also future-proofing IoT products,” said Jonathan Cobb, Ayla Networks’ CEO. “It’s all part of the philosophy Ayla Networks has followed since its inception: integrate all the tough parts of doing IoT into a comprehensive IoT platform that’s continually updated and improved. That way, product manufacturers and service providers using the Ayla platform can put all their attention on their own businesses, without worrying about the ‘IoT’ aspect of their offerings.”
