Pelion is here, as an independent company, rising from Arm’s technology heritage and now singularly focused on accelerating IoT adoption.
What does this mean for the world of IoT? Our goal is to provide a reliable foundation to manage both the ‘I’nternet (connectivity) and ‘T’hings (devices). We want to empower businesses to unleash IoT data, applications, and the business transformation promised by IoT.
So far, IoT technologies have struggled to solidify their rightful place in digital transformation. Innovators have explored diverse use cases, used a variety of device types, connected on fragmented networks, and deployed everywhere, from the cloud to on-premises through to the edge. This proliferation across IoT needs to be reined in with resilient management. That is what Pelion delivers.
Pelion’s Connected Device platform is designed to simplify IoT complexity with:
- Seamless connectivity despite network diversity
- Effective management regardless of device diversity
- Comprehensive application enablement at the edge
Let’s explore a representative use case of an industrial site aiming to get better visibility and control of manufacturing operations using IoT. The site would likely have a mix of equipment like robotic assembly lines, chemical treatment lines, and quality test machines running in multiple shifts round the clock. In addition, there will be lighting, temperature, humidity, vibration, gas sensors to monitor environment health and worker safety.
All these devices may be directly connected on local or cellular network, or indirectly connected through edge gateways. To ensure no downtime, each device must have the latest firmware updates, end-to-end security, and an ability to monitor and indicate deteriorating health. Also, for timely decision-making with local data from the devices, business critical applications may need to run locally on the gateway systems, with or without connectivity.
Pelion addresses such complex IoT projects by offering a one-stop platform for connectivity, device management, and edge application orchestration. With Pelion services, legacy and non-IP devices can be connected seamlessly, firmware/security patches can be delivered as fractional cost-effective updates, and device/connection health along with any vulnerabilities can be pinpointed with traceable identity.
