Cradlepoint SDK Aimed at IoT, M2M Applications
Developers and enterprise customers can create tailored M2M and IoT applications on top of Cradlepoint platforms to address specific business needs.Cloud-based network solutions specialist Cradlepoint has released a router software development kit (SDK) and extensibility platform to help businesses build and customize more intelligent, application-specific machine-to-machine and internet of things solutions on top of Cradlepoint’s latest COR IBR routers. The SDK enables enterprises and their managed service providers or service integrators to collect and analyze vast amounts of data and push out business rules and policies to the edge, as well as other functions that can help departments served by IT, including operations and marketing. Developers and enterprise customers now can create tailored machine-to-machine (M2M) and internet of things (IoT) applications on top of Cradlepoint solution platforms to address their specific business needs. "The key change to the way businesses operate and interact with their clients and customers is that IoT can produce rich data and analytics that businesses can use to make better decisions," Ken Hosac, vice president of business development for Cradlepoint, told eWEEK. "For example, customer analytics generated from IoT devices can help the CMO of an organization better understand customer patterns like in-store location, dwell time, shopping frequency and tailor marketing programs and campaigns on a store-by-store basis."
The extensibility platform launches in conjunction with additions to Cradlepoint’s COR family of M2M/IoT and in-vehicle routers, the COR IBR600B and COR IBR650B.
