Gemalto has launched its Cinterion Concept Board for developers. The new board is designed for 'Internet of Things' applications that allow objects to transfer information over a network. The board leverages the Oracle Java ME Embedded platform.
According to the company, the new development kit simplifies solution design by allowing M2M developers to transform ideas into prototypes quickly. The board is also cloud-ready through Gemalto's SensorLogic application enablement platform with secure wireless connectivity enabled by a Cinterion M2M module. It also features an open source interface for Arduino extension boards.
"Our Cinterion Concept Board is the easiest and most cost effective way for anyone with an interest in M2M and the [Internet of Things] to create solutions like remotely controlling the temperature of your home thermostat, helping to save energy and money," said Axel Hansmann, vice president of M2M strategy and marketing at Gemalto. "With the Cinterion Concept Board, we are tapping the creativity of Java developers, enabling them to invent cool applications."
