Linux-based platform aims to speed M2M development

Linux-based platform aims to speed M2M development

An open source platform, designed to speed and simplify the development of M2M applications, has been launched by Sierra Wireless.

Called Legato, the embedded platform runs Wind River Linux and comes with pre-integrated and validated components that provide connectivity to any cloud, any network and any peripheral.

"In building Legato, our aim is to provide a complete device-to-cloud solution for developers, along with tools, support and a development community to give embedded M2M projects a head start," said Sierra Wireless CTO Philippe Guillemette.

Both Wind River Linux and the board support package in Legato have been validated on AirPrime WP and AR Series smart modules.

Sierra claims the platform makes M2M application development quicker, easier and more flexible by allowing developers to focus on the core applications that will add the most value to their products.

As well as removing the complexity of wireless integration, the Linux base allows it to be easily ported to any external processor, meaning it can be used across a deployment with a mix of hardware solutions and re-used from one generation of hardware to the next.
