Libelium Sensors Connect with Cloud Platforms

November 19, 2013

The Waspmote wireless sensor ecosystem can be integrated with Axeda, Esri, ThingWorx, and MQTT platforms to reduce time to market for Internet of Things systems.

SAN FRANCISCO & ZARAGOZA, Spain /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Libelium added new integration options from leading cloud technology providers in the latest stage of the build-out of its Waspmote wireless sensor platform ecosystem, to reduce time to market for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Demos showcasing Waspmote nodes integrated with software platforms from Axeda, Esri, ThingWorx, as well as the MQTT protocol will be rolled out at Dreamforce 2013 in San Francisco, at Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and at the Internet of Things & WSN conference in Santa Clara, CA. The new cloud connector framework is based on a new managing system for Libelium's Meshlium wireless gateway, allowing easy configuration of any of these platforms. Existing Meshlium users are eligible for the upgrade.

How it Works
"Waspmote is a universal hardware platform for the Internet of Things because it is open and modular, and can integrate any sensor, using any communication protocol, and send retrieved data to any cloud system for analysis or storage," said David Gascon, CTO at Libelium. "Now we're offering access to the best Cloud software platforms by streamlining the integration process, to connect the physical world to the virtual world and transform sensor data into information resources."

Supplier/Key Features Why It Matters
Axeda—The Axeda Machine Cloud offers an IoT and M2M platform to connect remote devices and assets, manage connected products, enable application development, and integrate machine data with enterprise business systems. Libelium's Meshlium sensor network gateway is easily configured with the new Meshlium Manager System to send machine data from Waspmote to the Axeda Machine Cloud for use.
Esri—The ArcGIS technology platform provides information management tools, including maps, visualization analytics, geographic and demographic data/services accessible via desktop, browser, smartphone, or tablet applications. Sensor data from Waspmote can directly integrate with existing maps and ArcGIS applications to create and enhance IoT solutions with precise location and geospatial analysis tools.
ThingWorx—A modern and complete platform for IoT and M2M applications that includes the necessary functionality for flexible device connectivity, business system integration, as well as application development, runtime, and intelligence tools. Developers can build, test, and run their IoT and M2M applications with the ThingWorx rapid development platform using sensor data collected from Waspmote nodes and stored in Meshlium or structured and analyzed in their own data center or in the cloud.
MQTT—A simple, lightweight messaging protocol designed for constrained devices and low-bandwidth, high-latency networks, where battery power is critical. MQTT is an emerging open standard widely deployed due to its bandwidth reduction and delivery assurance features: Waspmote data can be stored in any cloud platform that uses this protocol.
