Axeda (News - Alert) Corporation, in collaboration with associate organizations CalAmp, Danlaw, GlobalSat, Lantronix, MultiTech, RFM and Xirgo, have released several Axeda Ready devices. Devices from the associate organizations have effectively accomplished Axeda Ready development, testing and qualifications, thereby guaranteeing compatibility and effortless deployment with the Axeda Machine Cloud.
The Axeda Ready program allows an increasing number of devices and services to incorporate with the Axeda Machine Cloud in a rapid and simplified manner. Customers are therefore offered a wide assortment of devices while choosing the perfect communication device for their environment. A testing and deployment program is offered to device manufacturers by Axeda Ready. The program corroborates their connectivity either through the Axeda agent protocol or their own device protocol. Development and certification of Axeda Codecs are also included in the Axeda Ready program.
In a statement, Bill Zujewski, Executive VP, Product Strategy and Marketing at Axeda said, "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. 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."
Some of the latest Axeda Ready products available to customers include CalAmp’s (News - Alert) LMU 3000, Danlaw’s DataLogger 250/450/750, GlobalSat’s TR-151, Lantronix’s PremierWave XC and XN, Multi-Tech Systems’ MultiConnect OCG, RFM’s RFM LG2430E, and Xirgo’s XT-2060G, XT-4760G, XT5060G.
Sam Lucero, Senior Principal Analyst, M2M Research at HIS, said, "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. 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'."
