Las Vegas, NV – Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: ARW) and Embedded Planet announced an expanded collaboration to create products for the Internet of Things (IoT) market today at CTIA Super Mobility 2015. Embedded Planet is providing gateway and wireless sensor products that are integrated into Arrow’s new Intelligent Gateway products. The IoT products provide off-the-shelf gateway, sensor and remote management capabilities based on SmartMesh IP from Linear Technology and Arrow’s new API-centric Intelligent Services offering.
Embedded Planet, a Cleveland, Ohio based M2M company, has created a range of products for OEMs to quickly create IoT product offerings. The SmartMesh IP solution includes the EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway or gateway and the EPM2M-SM-IO Sensor modules. The EPM2M-SM-IP can be used for any SmartMesh IP based sensor network which requires the SmartMesh IP Gateway to be integrated with Wi-Fi, cellular or satellite communication and requires a flexible back haul connection for data management.
The EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway is a Linux based off-the-shelf solution that is simple to implement and is capable of delivering customer sensor data, by wireless or wired connection, to cloud-based graphical web displays or to the customer’s existing ERP or business enterprise database system.
The EPM2M-SM-IO Sensor module allows customers to receive data for temperature, humidity, 3-axis accelerometer, lumens and pressure while getting this data securely and reliably over SmartMesh IP.
By integrating the EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway with the EPM2M-SM-IO Sensors the OEM can greatly simplify the implementation, provisioning and data visualization. The EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway is also integrated with MachineShop’s device, data and event management services and APIs.
MachineShop APIs leverage industry standard interfaces to allow the OEM to quickly develop a product and manage their equipment. The EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway also supports sending data directly to a cloud based portal like Buglabs’ Freeboard, to hosting site like AWS or directly to an OEM’s database.
“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 monetize new offerings,” said Aiden Mitchell, Vice President of Semiconductor Marketing at Arrow.
“The EPM2M-SM-IP Gateway and the EPM2M-SM-IO Sensor module enable an OEM to quickly add SmartMesh IP based sensors to their equipment and implement M2M or IoT services for their customers. An OEM can implement IoT now by using Arrow Intelligent Services and the Embedded Planet SmartMesh IP system solution”, said Matt Hoover, CEO of Embedded Planet.
