1248 joins ARM mbed Partner Ecosystem to drive IoT market

Internet of Things (IoT) pioneer 1248 has joined the ARM mbed Partner Ecosystem and today (22 October 2015) announced that its new automated, IoT device management solution will be launched at the ARM TechCon event in Silicon Valley in November.

The solution will be built on the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform, which provides a simple way to design and control embedded connected devices at scale.

The ARM mbed Partner Ecosystem brings together leading embedded and cloud companies, component manufacturers, system integrators and OEMs. The Ecosystem is committed to the openness, standards, technology and services needed to accelerate innovation in IoT systems and wider adoption.

Ecosystem partners have the opportunity to contribute to the mbed platform, use it within their own solutions for developers, and benefit from increased visibility and market access.

1248 designs and supplies scalable, deployable enterprise IoT infrastructure, spanning one million+ end-customers per product in areas as diverse as mobile phones, IPTV set-top-boxes and the connected home.

“A major obstacle to the growth of the IoT is the lack of widely-available, low-cost, high-quality open platforms – both hardware and software – for delivering connected devices,” said Pilgrim Beart, CEO at 1248 (pictured above).

“The mbed IoT Device Platform is an ambitious programme to deliver exactly that. Because IoT devices require energy-efficient, low-cost processors supported by an easy-to-use software development environment, ARM is ideally positioned to deliver a de-facto IoT platform, with a set of advanced open standards and a proven track-record in ecosystem development across the mobile industry.”

“The IoT spans all industries and making it successful will require one of the broadest and most inclusive technology ecosystems the world has ever seen,” said Zach Shelby, vice president of marketing, IoT business, ARM.

“We specialise in building deep relationships across the technology sector and ARM engages with thousands of companies in doing this. 1248 is a key partner within the mbed ecosystem as they are close to early IoT adopters and therefore have the ability to accelerate the deployment of IoT solutions.”
