FOXBORO, Mass., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Axeda Corporation, the leading cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and delivering machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, today announced that devices from partner companies CalAmp, Danlaw, GlobalSat, Lantronix, MultiTech, RFM and Xirgo have successfully completed Axeda Ready development, testing and certification, which ensures compatibility and ease of deployment with the Axeda Machine Cloud®.
By enabling more devices and services to quickly and easily integrate with the Axeda Machine Cloud, the Axeda Ready program broadens the device options available to customers – allowing them to select the right communication device for their environment. For device manufacturers, Axeda Ready provides a testing and implementation program that validates their connectivity via the Axeda agent protocol or their own device protocol. The program includes development and certification of Axeda Codecs (protocol translators) that leverage the Axeda AnyDevice Service to enable device makers to connect to Axeda using their own device protocol.
"New business strategies offering connected services will rely on a diverse and broad array of devices and our customers want M2M platform solutions that give them the flexibility to use any device type," said Bill Zujewski, executive vice president of product strategy and marketing at Axeda. "The Axeda Ready program was created to enable easy connectivity using a long list of popular M2M communication devices for equipment, consumer products, fleets, smart homes, smart hospitals, smart cities and the Internet of Corporate Things ™. Our M2M application enablement platform is not tied to a single device like most of our competitors, but instead delivers a future-proof multi-device approach."
"Solutions that help simplify the process for manufacturers and remove time, cost, and complexity from developing a connected product solution will be the key force behind the industry's continued growth," said Sam Lucero, senior principal analyst for M2M research at IHS. "We expect the installed base of cellular connected devices in M2M applications to grow to approximately 327 million connections globally by 2016. This growth will be increasingly characterized by an evolution from standalone 'point solutions' to multi-vendor interoperability and then to a truly inter-connected 'Internet of Things'."

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff hap...
