Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Intel Team Up for IOT Solutions

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Intel have partnered to create and deliver new Internet of Things solutions. The two companies also intend to open three global IoT solutions labs to help customers with their IoT technology deployments. The three new IoT Discovery Labs will be located at HPE's existing facilities in Houston, Texas; Grenoble, France; and Singapore.

In developing Internet of Things solutions, the companies intend to combine HPE's existing IoT technology and IT expertise with Intel's IoT software platform and products designed to collect, process and analyze data collected from sensors and other networked devices. The IoT solutions will also include Intel's Core i5 and Atom processors.

Sierra Wireless Releases AirLink Raven RV50 Gateway

Internet of Things company Sierra Wireless has released a gateway intended to provide machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity in industrial applications. The AirLink Raven RV50 gateway, which the company calls the industry's lowest-power 4G LTE gateway, is built to be rugged and is designed for use in harsh and hazardous environments.

Sierra Wireless reports that the Raven RV50 can serve as a gateway for IoT applications, such as video surveillance for security. The device functions as part of a comprehensive solution for customers allowing the fast transmission of data to users regarding incidents in the field.

The Raven RV50 includes the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF), an embedded programming system for onboard data gathering, real-time data processing and alert generation. The application framework also enables the delivery of real-time data and information, reliably and securely via LTE networks, to the Sierra Wireless IoT Acceleration Platform or to other software applications and operational systems.

In addition, the company reports, the AirLink Raven RV50 offers SIM-based network operator switching. Users can insert the SIM card into the gateway, and it will automatically configure the new network settings.

Due to its low power consumption (less than 1 watt in idle mode), the Raven RV50 provides an alternative for remote industrial infrastructures, in which applications are typically battery or solar powered.
