Enabling Smart City and Smart Buildings with an IoT Service Delivery Framework

Creating an IoT backbone for smart city and smart building solutions is a lot of work. You need a secure, scalable solution providing connectivity for new and legacy equipment to the cloud, plus software for managing devices and collecting and processing data. Discover a way to shorten time to market with an IoT service delivery framework easily configurable to your use case.

A Ferrari in the Raspberry Pi World

The Raspberry Pi 2 is the de facto standard for today’s maker market, but there has been nothing similar in a credit-card-sized form factor x86 board for the professional maker market. Until now. Learn about the UP board, a collaboration of AAEON, Emutex, and Intel that began with a Kickstarter campaign and now is taking off as a fast and powerful alternative to any kind of Pi.

Compete on the Edge with 64-bit Performance at Entry-Level Prices

Growing competition in the IoT space puts pressure on price, performance, and feature set in edge devices. The more you can do with the least amount of power, the better. Find out how the 14nm Intel® Atom™ processor x5-E8000 slashes the price and power consumption of quad-core 64-bit computing. Then look at four different boards and modules that feature this processor.

IoT Farming for Better Animal Health and Production

Sometimes you have to stroll out to the barn to get a real sense of how far IoT technology has come and what it can accomplish in the real world. Imagine, for instance, using it to improve milk and beef yields by ensuring cow feed is better mixed. See how a farm equipment manufacturer is working daily with farmers through an IoT gateway solution that turns cloud analysis into advice in the field.

IoT Middleware Delivers Web-Based Application Enablement

Setting up an IoT platform to gather data from sensors and send that data to the cloud is far from easy and often requires supporting third-party vendor solutions for specific end-to-end data flows. Make the job easier with a set of solutions designed around the Intel® IoT Platform that enables companies to deploy, configure, and manage end-to-end IoT deployments from a single, cloud-based portal.

Unifying the IoT Data View for Better Insights

The industry talks a lot about how to build bridges from the edge to the cloud, but it can be equally hard to find solutions that present the information to the customer in ways that truly foster good, fast decisions. Learn about a solution that unifies data from any data source, any format, and any application, and presents it in a single, intuitive visual interface that makes it easy to turn data into action.

Handling Fast Data for Faster Results and Faster ROI

There’s big data and then there’s fast data. High in volume and time-sensitive, fast data must be processed quickly or the opportunity to act or deliver an alert is lost. Explore an IoT data fusion platform from a Silicon Valley company serving Global 1000 companies and government agencies that helps developers handle fast data for their customers.

The Beauty of Ultra-Low Power and Ultra Small at the Edge

Imagine 27 billion connections by 2024 and 69 percent of them short-range wireless such as Wi-Fi*, Bluetooth* Low Energy (BLE), and ZigBee*. For the world’s developers, that’s a huge challenge in connectivity, hardware, firmware, security, maintenance, and device management. To help build this new tomorrow, consider an innovative edge sensor platform based on Intel® Quark™ microcontrollers.
