Silver Spring Networks has widened its developer programme with a range of new tools announced at this week’s Internet of Things (IoT) World 2017 in Santa Clara, California.

 

The company wants to accelerate innovation for the Internet of Important Things (IoIT) by streamlining the development process and expanding the number of solution partners with access to its platform.

 

The tools include a new developer portal, developer kits and a simulation tool for application development.

 

Silver Spring said support for the Arduino developer environment, the simplification of software tools, and the new developer portal will broaden the potential devices and applications that can integrate with its IoT technology into solutions for utilities, cities and industrial companies.

 

“Our primary goal with the developer programme is to provide partners with the open, scalable, and flexible tools and technologies needed to develop the game-changing solutions of tomorrow.

 

"As a standards-based technology company, we support and encourage collaboration to help the industry continue to make innovative IoT applications a reality,” said John Marcolini, general manager and vice president of product management, Silver Spring Networks.

 

“For current customers, the developer programme will help fast-track the creation of innovative connectivity solutions that can improve the lives of millions of people.”

 

The developer programme is open to new and existing customers and developers who are building the next generation of sensors, actuators, devices and applications within the smart utility, smart city and industrial IoT sectors.

 

Participants can create and test new IoT solutions that can be delivered through the Starfish platform-as-a-service (PaaS), which is based on Silver Spring’s standards-based wireless network and data platform.

 

The full range of tools announced at this week’s Internet of Things World 2017 in Santa Clara were:

 

  • Developer Portal – enables developers to create IoT solutions using Silver Spring technology. It connects developers with the Silver Spring engineering community, supporting materials, and step-by-step documentation for the usage of the developer kits;
  • Milli Shield Dev Kit for Arduino boards – provides development partners with Silver Spring’s RF mesh IPv6 technology in a form factor designed for battery-operated devices;
  • IoT Edge Router, Dev Edition – connects any sensor to Silver Spring’s IPv6 Starfish platform via standard Ethernet or USB interface on the router. Router includes the ability to develop edge applications on the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution;
  • Starfish Studio– is an interactive simulation tool available through the Developer Portal for modeling IoT devices and solutions and enabling easy application development.
