Arrayent dynamise l’Internet des objets (IOT) en lançant de nouveaux produits au salon CES 2014

Arrayent (www.arrayent.com), le numéro un des technologies de virtualisation conçues pour l’Internet des objets, a annoncé aujourd’hui qu’une série de nouvelles solutions de connectivité seront présentées lors du Consumer Electronics Show 2014 dans le cadre de sa plateforme IOT pour produits et systèmes connectés.

Après avoir levé 11,9 millions USD lors du cycle de financement de série B mené le mois dernier par DCM Ventures et Intel Capital, Arrayent lance, dans le cadre du salon CES de cette année, plusieurs nouvelles solutions conçues pour permettre aux fabricants de produits de consommation, aux détaillants et aux fournisseurs de services de renforcer leurs relations avec les consommateurs.

« Passant en revue l’année 2013, nous avons relevé que les principaux fabricants de produits de consommation, les détaillants et les fournisseurs de services ont beaucoup manœuvré pour s’emparer d’une part du marché en pleine croissance des produits de consommation connectés », a déclaré Shane Dyer, fondateur et PDG d’Arrayent. « Lors du Consumer Electronics Show de cette année, plusieurs grandes marques vont présenter sur le stand d’Arrayent une gamme étendue de nouveaux produits tous optimisés par la technologie d’Arrayent. Nous démontrerons, en outre, des améliorations de notre plateforme Connect qui permettront d’accélérer les délais de commercialisation ».

Arrayent approche l’Internet des objets d’une manière unique et différenciée. Sa technologie de virtualisation des dispositifs réduit la complexité du matériel et des logiciels associés à l’ajout de la connectivité Internet aux produits de consommation. La virtualisation des dispositifs place l’essentiel de la gestion et des logiciels de calcul dans le nuage, plutôt que dans le dispositif lui-même. En déplaçant la complexité et la fonctionnalité vers le nuage, les clients d’Arrayent réduisent le coût des appareils connectés tels que les détecteurs de fumée et les thermostats tout en les rendant, pour les consommateurs, plus fiables et beaucoup plus faciles à installer et à utiliser.

Parmi les faits saillants de cette année, Arrayent fera la démonstration d’un nouveau dispositif multi-protocole peu coûteux qui offre la production sur mesure et prend en charge les protocoles ZigBee HA1.2, Z-Wave et 900/868MHz d’Arrayent. Arrayent dévoilera également son cadre mobile, une nouvelle extension de la plateforme Connect d’Arrayent. Le cadre accélère le développement d’applications mobiles pour les partenaires qui mettent au point, sur iOS et Android, des expériences attrayantes pour l’utilisateur, les meilleures de leur catégorie. Arrayent a utilisé le cadre pour développer une application mobile de type « maison intelligente » qui permet à un utilisateur de surveiller et de contrôler à distance les appareils connectés tels que lampes, prises intelligentes, thermostats et capteurs.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
