Making more 'Things' smart and connected

Intel has released a set of IoT Platform reference architecture and hardware and software products as part of an effort to build out one of the most comprehensive offerings for the IoT marketplace. The platform includes two reference architectures and a portfolio of products from Intel and its ecosystem to address opportunities within the IoT.

Doug Davis, senior vice president, IoT Group at Intel, said: "Intel is making it easier for our customers to scale from things to cloud with new Intel Quark processors for IoT and Wind River's free cloud-connected OS for microcontrollers."

Intel says it is working with a variety of companies across market segments to scale from a proof of concept to pilot to deployments.

The platform is claimed to provide a blueprint for delivering innovations to market by reducing complexity and defining how smart devices will securely connect and share trusted data to the cloud.

The addition of Intel Quark processors for IoT provides low-power silicon for intelligent things. The Intel Quark SE SoC and the Intel Quark microcontroller D1000 and D2000 feature low-energy, powerful processing. The products are suited to the IoT, offering extended temperature for demanding environments and claimed to have long life reliability. The Intel Quark SE SoC for IoT is said to offer an integrated sensor hub as well as pattern matching technology to deliver real-time insights from complex sensor data.

Wind River’s operating system is designed to help makers and commercial developers simplify and accelerate IoT application and device development. It is said that it gives designers the ability to start building applications in 10 minutes. It also includes free cloud-connected multi-architecture operating systems, Wind River Rocket and Wind River Pulsar Linux, and a cloud suite of software-as-a-service products.

This ‘things to cloud’ solution offers customers a path from experimentation to development to full commercial deployments.

A key ingredient to the Intel IoT Platform is the Trusted Analytics Platform (TAP), which helps make data actionable and can be integrated in an end-to-end IoT solution. Designed for developers and data scientists, TAP is a suitable platform for industries such as healthcare, retail and industrial. It integrates with the Intel IoT Platform reference architecture for data management, protocol abstraction, workload distribution and compute.
