Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, announces today they will demonstrate a complete wireless gateway solution based on Intel’s hardware and software development kit that allows for machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, applications and services to get to market quicker. The demo will show a live development environment based on the Intel® Atom™ processor M2M reference platform with a software development kit from Wind River and Eurotech.
“Embedded systems now encompass a broad range of technical expertise beyond the capabilities of a single customer or service provider,” said Arlen Nipper, CTO for Eurotech North America. “With the Intel® Atom™-based M2M gateway reference platform, customers can start adding their business logic on the first day of the product development cycle. Eurotech (eurotech.com) and Wind River took a complete modular design approach to the software stack for Intel’s M2M smart services development kit, which can significantly shorten hardware and software development for customers.”
Based on Intel® Atom™ processor technology, Wind River Linux, and Eurotech Everyware Software Framework, this new class of hardware incorporates the density of a complete appliance with the flexibility of an embedded industrial computer to enable mission critical applications. The Intel Atom-based M2M gateway reference platform demonstrates the disruptive notion of providing dense, flexible hardware platforms that reside on the “edges” of the network.
“Service innovators desire to create and quickly implement revenue-generating solutions for their specific applications. The Intel® Atom™ processor-based M2M gateway reference platform with Wind River Linux and Eurotech Everyware Software Framework enables developers to deploy new services quicker, easier and more cost efficiently,” said Kevin D. Johnson, director of Embedded Connected Devices, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel Corporation.
According to Chris Rezendes, EVP at VDC Research, “When we surveyed the market around the scalable edge node (SEN) space, which includes equipment such as the Intel M2M reference platform, we found that the largest anticipated challenge for adopters to migrate to SEN and cloud-ready platforms is to select the right software framework for their specific implementation. Eurotech’s Everyware Software Framework running on Wind River Linux in this smart services development kit offers one option to ease that transition.”
