In an effort to improve time-to-market for customers that are developing wireless solutions for the emerging “Internet of things” and machine-to-machine (M2M) markets, Zaragoza, Spain-based wireless sensor network hardware provider, Libelium, has completed the ThingWorx certification process for few of its products through the ThingWorx-Ready Program.
As a provider of first software application platform designed for today’s connected world, ThingWorx has been allowing businesses to rapidly deliver innovative applications and connected solutions across markets ranging from manufacturing, energy and food, to M2M remote monitoring and service, as well as Internet of things applications, with the help of its ThingWorx platform.
Libelium recently completed certification of its Meshlium Sensor Networking Gateway (News - Alert) device as ThingWorx-Ready.
With the help of this certification, Libelium’s Waspmote Plug & Sense! sensor platform is now compatible with the ThingWorx platform.
ThingWorx’s brand platform is the industry’s first application development platform designed to reduce the effort required to build M2M solutions and sensor applications for the increasingly connected world.
The ThingWorx-Ready Program allows hardware and software companies to pre-integrate their product with the ThingWorx rapid application development platform.
With this pre-integration, the creation and deployment of M2M solutions is much easier.
Exposing Libelium’s hardware technology to the ThingWorx ecosystem of OEMs, “smart” application providers, system integrators and resellers, the Libelium’s certification as ThingWorx-Ready creates a pre-integrated solution that will improve time to market and reduce overall solution costs for its customers.
The pre-integrated solution is ideal for those companies providing a wide variety of products throughout the entire connected world value chain – from software systems and cloud platforms to smart sensors, devices, gateways and machines.
Alicia Asín Pérez, CEO at Libelium, said in a statement, “Our aim is to reduce our customers’ time-to-market while remaining a horizontal hardware provider for the Internet of Things. We achieve both of these advantages with the integration into the ThingWorx platform.”
Russ Fadel, CEO and cofounder of ThingWorx, said in a statement, “With the number of connected devices projected to grow from one billion to 50 billion over the next 10 years the number of connected solutions must expand at a similarly rapid rate. This represents a tremendous opportunity for companies that can quickly develop end-to-end solutions.”
Fadel added, “Making our partners’ products ‘ThingWorx-Ready’ exposes them to the entire ThingWorx ecosystem and further extends the 5X to 10X development efficiency advantage that a ThingWorx based solution offers.”
