Eurotech Simplifies the Internet of Things (IoT), Connecting Devices and Managing Data with Everyware Cloud™ 2.0

Cloud-based M2M platform offers faster, more flexible data delivery and storage to drive business decisions and optimize results.

Amaro, Italy – May 30, 2012 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, today announces the launch of the Everyware Cloud 2.0 platform providing a foundation to deliver and manage M2M data within the business enterprise. The Everyware Cloud offers proven cloud, M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to enable clients in the transportation, logistics, and industrial markets to reach their business goals.

“The intersection of three disciplines, device development tools, cloud services, and network infrastructure, creates an opportunity for real smart systems innovation by combining device communication infrastructure with cloud services,” explained Glen Allmendinger, Principal at Harbor Research. “Managed application software and services, like the Eurotech Everyware Cloud 2.0, will help bridge gaps in today’s systems and drive new value across many vertical industries.”

“Enterprises need information to make better business decisions, reduce operating costs, and enable new services. With Everyware Cloud 2.0, now they have a platform to gather real-world data on demand and leverage it for their benefit,” said Marco Carrer, Vice President Software Engineering, Eurotech. “Eurotech’s new Everyware Cloud goes beyond the general benefits of cloud computing to collect, transport, store and analyze data from the field. The new solution will allow customers to act on their data in the most powerful, efficient way possible.”

“At Sensuss our mission is to enhance lives through knowledge: our products detect impact levels, environmental, and personal vital signs within a body network,” said Jeff Lawson, Chief Engineer of Sensuss, an innovative startup company which aims to prevent extensive injury to athletes due to head contact. “Through trials of Everyware Cloud we know we’re able to provide critical information to parents, coaches and athletes in real time, while also storing that crucial information for later use by the medical community.”

The Everyware Cloud is based on open standards, allowing users to connect their applications to the cloud platform quickly using a simple open application programming interface (API). Secure and efficient, the Everyware Cloud allows any size business to access powerful data and capabilities that used to only be available to companies that could invest huge amounts of time and resources in building large IT infrastructures and complex processes.

Benefits of Everyware Cloud 2.0 include:

Improved Device Connectivity – Everyware Cloud data model optimizes the device data communication aspect reducing protocol overhead and easing device management
Real-time Data Management – On the fly device data analysis and correlation to trigger business decisions, with no programming skills required
Long-term Queryable Data – Data can be stored and queried later at any time (for 36 months or even longer)
Flexible – Any format of data can be stored and accessed in the high-performance schema-less database
Platform Console – Easy-to-use web interface for device and platform management
Rich Set of APIs – All the platform features, even the console, are accessible through standard REST interface for easy IT integration
Quick and Easy Setup – Zero configuration required for new device connectivity
Device Independent – Open platform readily supporting ESF-enabled devices (from Eurotech or third parties) and enabling custom device connectivity.

Eurotech Everyware™ Software Framework Deployed on Wide Portfolio of M2M Hardware Platforms

Everyware Software Framework
Optimized hardware options meet diverse requirements across verticals for M2M connected device solutionsCTIA – M2M Zone Booth #346 Columbia, MD – October 11, 2011 – At CTIA Wireless Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, will demonstrate the new DynaVIS 10-00 rugged display computer, based on Intel® Atom™ processor, which is one of a broad portfolio of hardware platforms designed to enable machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in a variety of environments. While the Everyware Software Framework (ESF) simplifies development and debugging of application software, hardware options allow OEMs and enterprises to choose the M2M platform that delivers exactly what their business environment requires.

Purpose-built platforms – Eurotech has hardware options for rugged environments, mobile applications, and space- and power-constrained devices available today, so developers can choose the specific hardware platform to meet the precise requirements of their application. From wearable computers like the Zypad BR2000, to intelligent gateway platforms and mobile access routers like the Helios and DuraCOR family, Eurotech offers a broad portfolio of hardware platforms for different M2M environments. The new DynaVIS 10-00 display computer, on display in booth #346 at CTIA Wireless, is ruggedized and targeted for transportation environments. All these hardware options are based on the Intel Atom processor.

Third-party hardware – Eurotech ESF platform resides on the Intel® architecture based-M2M Smart Services Gateway development kit, further expanding the pool of devices users have available to suit their M2M needs. The development kit offers a flexible platform for M2M application coding, which is reusable on other hardware platforms as necessary.

Software portability – Since ESF runs on multiple hardware platforms, developers write their application software once and can port the software to a different platform also running ESF. This capability extends the life of the software and means developers are reusing code to simplify the delivery of a specific application over many platforms. For instance, in a medical environment, the same data capture and display application can reside on a panel PC in an ambulance, on a device in an emergency or operating room, and on a wearable computer a doctor or nurse uses when visiting patients in recovery.

“Eurotech’s hardware options for M2M, including Intel® Atom™ processor-based products, give users many options when they’re looking for the platform that is the best suited for their needs,” said Pete Dombrowski, Director of Hardware Engineering for Eurotech in North America. “With ESF on these platforms, developers have a precise match between the software framework and highly capable system hardware running under low power constraints, in harsh environments, and with wired and wireless connectivity options so they can deliver effective M2M services.”

“Eurotech’s focus on enabling M2M solutions through a portfolio of Intel® Atom™ processor based hardware platforms combined with their Everyware Software Framework brings the potential of M2M services to life for enterprises across industries and verticals,” explained Kevin Johnson, director of Connected Devices, Intel Corporation. “Intel and Eurotech are working with other industry leaders to enable the reality of M2M applications today, helping developers, OEMs and enterprises bring M2M devices and services to market quickly.”
