Intel introduces Internet of Things (IoT) platform to expand into connected devices market

Intel has introduced its own Internet of Things (IoT) platform to set up its footprints in the emerging market of connected devices, alongside developing wearables. The company has announced integrated hardware and software products and also partnered with other technology companies to kick-start its new approach.

Intel, in a press statement released on Tuesday, said that the new move will provide new offerings and relationships in the market to let solution providers move IoT “from infancy to mass development”.

On announcing the introduction of new IoT platform, Doug Davis, vice president and general manager, Internet of Things Group, Intel, said:

“With this platform we are continuing to expand our IoT product family beyond silicon with enhancements to our pre-integrated solutions that make IoT more accessible to solution providers. IoT is a rapidly growing market but faces scalability hurdles. By simplifying the development process and making it easier to deploy new solutions that address market needs, we can help accelerate innovation.”

Intel has announced its roadmap for integrated hardware and software products to support its IoT platform. The roadmap includes new API management and service creation software, edge-to-cloud connectivity and analytics, intelligent gateways and a full line of scalable IA processors. The chip maker is additionally in development to provide its cloud connectivity through systems like Wind River Edge Management System and is set to support development community by introducing IoT Developer Kits and provide security through McAfee.

Moreover, Intel has partnered with new companies to widen its IoT platform in the coming future. These companies include Accenture, Booz Allen Hamilton, Capgemini, Dell, HCL, NTT Data, SAP, Tata Consultancy and Wipro among others.
