Kontron announces that the Kontron M2M Smart Services Developer Kit now fully supports the Cumulocity M2M Application Platform. The cloud-based horizontal machine-to-machine (M2M) application platform delivers an integrated server-side database platform, network agents and sensor libraries to significantly reduce the efforts needed to bring the M2M connected sensors and devices into the cloud. Application engineers can consequently concentrate on the development of M2M services for their distributed devices. The server-side database platform is designed to collect and analyze data from thousands of Kontron M2M Smart Services Developer Kit connected sensors and devices. It controls these devices in a reliable, secure and scalable manner so that the entire service kit is perfectly tailored for a host of vertical M2M industries such as fleet management, smart energy grids, digital signage and many other appliances that are connected to the Internet-of-Things. With the addition, the Kontron Smart Services Developer Kit significantly reduces the complexity involved in communicating with diverse device types, each having its own data model, protocol and transport mechanisms.
It also provides developers with ready-to-use components for rapid development of their individual applications. These are, for instance, tools for supervision and control of meters and sensors via the cloud.
