InternetofThings Connected, Managed and Secured

The Trend of Cloud Technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud technology is changing the way we live, work, communicate, and entertain ourselves. So many objects and activities within our daily lives are fast becoming connected to the Internet of Things, generating enormous amounts of data from billions of connected endpoint devices. As more and more devices connect, generating more and more data to process, store, and access from the cloud, how to aggregate, prioritize, and process that data in an intelligent and secure manner has become a necessity to prevent data overload. The more we rely on those connected devices and the real-time data they provide, the more important it is to address the reliability and security of the gateways. The IntelÂŽ processor-based BI2551900J-IoT-DEV development kit is a major head start in addressing these issues as part of the IoT evolution.

The “Things�

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad infrastructure comprised of nearly unlimited devices across many different industries. The devices are connected to the cloud via intelligent and secure gateway systems. These industries include retail, energy and building management, medical, gaming, transportation, communication, security surveillance, and industrial automation, to name a few. Examples of applications within these IoT networks could include retail transactions, banking, self-serve kiosk, digital signage, vending machines, eHome appliances, healthcare, theme park management, security surveillance, factory automation, building energy management systems, and hospitality meeting and convention centers event venue systems.

Intel速 Gateway Solutions for the IoT

While new intelligent computing systems are more easily adapted to efficiently operate within the IoT, there are still billions of legacy devices, sensors, and systems operating unmanaged and often with insufficient security. These devices often send non-essential or redundant data over

the network or to the cloud clogging traffic and occupying limited resources and bandwidth. Replacing all existing infrastructure with next generation equipment could result huge investment costs to the end user and excessive development costs and significant time to market for potential solution providers. To help solve this problem, the BCM BI255-1900J-IoT-

DEV based on the Intel速 Gateway Solution for IoT is a purpose-built system with pre-validated hardware and software designed to connect legacy and new emerging systems to the cloud. This solution unblocks and seamlessly and securely transfers, analyzes, shares, and filters data aggregated among edge devices and the cloud.
