World's first Intelligent Gateway sets out to simplify IoT deployments

10 Sep 15

NetComm Wireless and Arrow Electronics have begun the first phase of a new framework set to simplify Internet of Things (IoT) deployments worldwide.

Known as ‘Arrow Intelligent Services’, the framework will be the market’s first Intelligent Gateway.

As a global offering, it is said this will lower deployment costs and accelerate the development of IoT applications that interact with IoT hardware, through standard web services and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), rather than through complicated and proprietary interfaces and development kits.

"NetComm Wireless has long recognised the importance of open, simple and economical connectivity solutions. We are pleased to work with Arrow Electronics on the delivery of a market first Intelligent Gateway that will streamline complex and fragmented development processes, and significantly reduce the time and cost involved in building new applications anywhere in the world," says David Stewart, NetComm Wireless CEO and managing director.

"Arrow Intelligent Services is the 'fabric' that will enable the edge-to-enterprise integration of IoT solutions," says Aiden Mitchell, Arrow vice president of semiconductor marketing.

"It will dramatically simplify the way OEMs, enterprises and suppliers build, deploy and manage connected and intelligent systems.

"The easier we can make it for businesses to access meaningful data from IoT, the easier it will be for them to build new applications, integrate existing systems, share information and monetise new offerings," he says.

Arrow Intelligent Gateways will be launched as the first part of a new framework that will provide off-the-shelf management capabilities for a number of product categories.

The technology leverages a common set of API-based services to normalise set-up, configuration and management of NetComm Wireless' M2M devices.
