Earlier today, BlackBerry released a new video about their Internet of Things. IoT is a really hot topic now and BlackBerry has been pretty active in this sector. So check out what they have in the pipeline for IoT!
The BlackBerry IoT Platform gives you that control, providing a cloud-based solution that lets you build and manage IoT applications and devices in a secure, efficient, and scalable way.
The BlackBerry IoT Platform provides a modular architecture to rapidly add BlackBerry and third-party services into your IoT applications and, once built, a backbone for these apps and devices to communicate privately.
Devices are connected via software ‘agents’ that can run on multiple operating systems. This capability is based on over 35 years of embedded software development expertise at BlackBerry.
The BlackBerry IoT Platform is hosted in the secure, global BlackBerry infrastructure, which today securely handles 35+ petabytes of mobile data per month. The cloud services provide the functionality to intelligently collect and analyze data, as well as manage devices through their entire lifecycle.
The BlackBerry IoT platform is designed to support data portability and analysis. Developers can take advantage of REST APIs, scalable data pipes, and persistent message queues to stream and exchange data with external systems.
BlackBerry IoT Platform SDKs
So you want to develop an application to connect to the BlackBerry IoT Platform. Why? At the simplest level, the BlackBerry IoT Platform SDKs allow your application to connect to and store device-specific information in the cloud. You can use the BlackBerry IoT Platform SDKs to manage, analyze, and share the stored data.
