Hewlett Packard Enterprise has introduced the HPE Universal IoT Platform saying it “dramatically simplifies integrating diverse devices with different communications protocols, enabling customers to realise tremendous benefits from their IoT data.”
HPE says the platform has been designed to scale to billions of transactions and has been tried and tested in rigorous large-scale global telco and enterprise environments in a variety of smart ecosystems.
“The HPE Universal IoT Platform is aligned with the oneM2M industry standard and is designed to be industry and vendor-agnostic, enabling IoT operators to simultaneously manage heterogeneous sets of sensors, operate vertical applications on machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, as well as process, analyse and monetise collected data in a single secure cloud platform,” HPE says.
HPE’s move coincides with the launch by Hitachi of its Lumada IoT platform, along with the creation a new IoT-focussed business unit.
According to HPE its platform provides increased support for long range, low power connectivity, ensuring that LoRa and Sigfox deployments can be supported alongside cellular, radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
“Objenious, a subsidiary of Bouygues Telecom, a French provider of mobile, fixed, TV, internet and cloud services, is using the HPE Universal IoT Platform and the LoRa network to deliver IoT services that address a number IoT use cases, ranging from vehicle fleet management, remote meter reading, predictive maintenance and geolocation.” HPE said.
