Arrayent Brings the Internet of Things to Life with New Products at CES 2014
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
a leader in virtualization technology for the Internet of Things, today
announced a lineup for new connectivity solutions to be showcased at the
2014 Consumer Electronics Show as part of its IOT Platform for Connected
Products and Systems.
On the heels of its $11.9 million Series B Funding Round led by DCM
Ventures and Intel Capital (News - Alert) last month, Arrayent is announcing several
new products at this year's CES that are designed to enable
manufacturers of consumer products, retailers and service providers to
strengthen their relationships with consumers.
"Looking back at 2013, we saw industry leading consumer product
manufacturers, retailers and service providers all jockeying to capture
share of the growing connected consumer products market," said Shane
Dyer, founder and CEO of Arrayent. "At this year's Consumer Electronics
Show several major brands will be demonstrating in Arrayent's booth an
extensive lineup of new products all powered by Arrayent technology. In
addition, we'll be demonstrating advances to our Connect Platform that
will accelerate their time to market."
Arrayent is taking a unique and differentiated approach to the Internet
of Things. Its device-virtualization technology minimizes the hardware
and software complexity associated with adding Internet connectivity to
consumer products. Device-virtualization places most of the compute
power and software in the cloud, rather than in the device itself. By
shifting complexity and functionality into the cloud, Arrayent customers
reduce the cost of connected devices such as smoke detectors and
thermostats while making them more reliable and much easier for
consumers to install and use.
Among the highlights this year, Arrayent will be demonstrating a new low
cost multi-protocol manufacture-ready design that supports ZigBee HA1.2,
Z-Wave and Arrayent's 900/868MHz protocol. Arrayent will also unveil its
Mobile Framework, a new extension to the Arrayent Connect Platform. The
framework accelerates mobile application development for partners
building compelling, best-in-class user experiences on iOS and Android (News - Alert).
Arrayent used the framework to develop a 'smart home' mobile application
that lets a user remotely monitor and control connected devices such as
lights, smart plugs, thermostats and sensors.
