Axis Communications is the first company to integrate security cameras with the IoT Gateway Meshlium
Internet of Things (IoT) company Libelium is launching two new partnership programmes to integrate devices from hardware companies and new radio communication protocols. The new services allow integration of devices with the IoT Gateway Meshlium and new communication protocols (apart from the 16 already supported).
Its aim is to further enlarge the IoT ecosystem to more than 90 companies and offer interoperability with any company in the whole IoT value chain.
The Hardware Partner Programme will allow the integration of streaming devices like sensor nodes, cameras, microphones, data loggers, PLCs and other industrial devices. Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, has been the first company to join the programme and has integrated a camera with Libelium’s IoT Gateway. It connects directly with more than 40 cloud platforms already compatible with Meshlium.
“Axis cameras and Libelium sensors can be combined and connected to any cloud platform to allow the collection and aggregation of all these various data streams in an easy and integrated manner,” explained Andrea Sorri, director business development city surveillance, Axis Communications.
He added: “Advanced analytical algorithms can then leverage this smart data aggregation to generate valuable information that can help solve some of the most common urban challenges, and this can be customised for each city’s needs.”
The IoT market is constantly in motion and new communication protocols emerge every year. For this reason, Libelium has also launched the Radio Partner Programme to enable the integration of new technologies. This new facility offers two options: one to develop custom projects and another for radio technology manufacturers.
“We are extending the interoperability of our IoT ecosystem because we are currently working in the whole IoT value chain, not only from sensors to the cloud,” said David Gascón, Libelium chief technology officer.
“Our new programmes satisfy the demands of the market by adding third party devices and allowing the opportunity to send data through any connectivity protocol”, affirmed Alicia Asín, Libelium CEO.
The IoT Marketplace currently offers up to 62 ready-to-be-deployed kits. One of Libelium’s main goals is to ease the IoT adoption in all the verticals of the market around the world.
