BEAMruntime(TM) Released to Connected Product Manufacturers Under Open Source License
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 --
ControlBEAM� Digital Automation, the software subsidiary of ADC Technologies Group, is releasing its embeddable BEAMruntime�, or BEAMRT�, to manufacturers of connected products and devices under an open source license. Connected products powered by BEAMRT�, called BEAMables�, are able to interoperate and support both machine-to-machine and human-to-machine communications using in-memory BEAMable� Apps. BEAMRT can be easily embedded into any micro device or operating system.
The BEAMable� App Platform transports BEAMable Apps from the ControlBEAM� Cloud to connected products powered by BEAMRT. Once delivered, BEAMRT can process the in-memory app to dynamically render the user interface, manage data, and control a device without any cloud dependency, providing native app performance while minimizing network traffic.
Using the ControlBEAM� Domain Manager (a BEAMable App), manufacturers can create a BEAMable App for their connected products without any coding, as simply as creating a calendar appointment on a smartphone. Once created in the ControlBEAM� Cloud, the BEAMable App can be embedded within the firmware of a connected product, along with the BEAMRT.
The embedded BEAMable� App can be transported on demand to any BEAMable� smartphone or tablet to remotely control the connected product.
With the same ControlBEAM� Domain Manager app, business and consumer users of these connected products (BEAMables�) can easily configure When/Then events among BEAMables� connected in an office, warehouse, store, or home domain.
"The ControlBEAM� Digital Automation Platform was developed ground-up to deliver apps connecting people to all things on-demand from any device," notes Doug Migliori, President of ControlBEAM, Inc. "The platform is an extremely compact, unified solution for the Internet of Everything that will be most effectively adopted by connected product manufacturers under an open source license."
