British semiconductor firm ARM has announced a range of technologies to speed up the development of IoT devices and make them more secure.
ARM's mbed IoT operating system is receiving an upgrade with the aim of shortening hardware design time and speed time to market. Designed to enable the deployment of IoT at scale, product innovations including mbed TLS, a native OS support for Thread and basic manageability of devices.
The company has also announced mbed Device Connector, a service that allows developers to connect devices within prototype deployments, build secure web applications quickly and easily integrate them with cloud solutions. Available at, mbed Device Connector is free for developers to use on up to 100 devices, handling up to 10,000 events per hour.
"ARM mbed partners now have access to the fundamental building blocks to develop and securely deploy IoT devices at any scale," said Krisztian Flautner, general manager, IoT business, ARM. "Since the launch of the mbed IoT Device Platform last year, we have focused our efforts on providing the mbed Partnership with the tools to scale deployments from a single cloud-connected sensor to a host of more intricate devices that enterprise-grade IoT solutions demand."
