The multinational semiconductor company, Arm Holdings, announced their Pelion platform to increase flexibility with IoT. The new software can address management of data and connectivity of multiple devices in IoT deployment.

With the constant innovation in smartphones, supercomputers, and autonomous vehicles, better IoT platforms are needed to sustain reliable and smooth data connectivity. Arm boasts that Pelion IoT software can handle the management needs of any cloud, any data, and any device.

According to Arm, the software features an efficient, flexible, and secure framework to accelerate the devices and technologies of IoT deployment. Pelion can easily connect trusted devices to global networks, administer them while invisible, and obtain real-time data.

Additionally, the platform provides a future-proof implementation on existing IoT ecosystems and connect devices on either narrowband or high-speed networks. It also brings a built-in endpoint security, stable networking, and regular security updates to protect connected devices and data transmission.

The framework of Pelion IoT platform has three main parts in supporting IoT deployment:

1. Connectivity Management Services: These services enable cost-effective and secure connection between trusted devices on several network standards. It means that multiple devices can gain data connection regardless of their network flexibility limit.

2. Device Management Services: These services allow management of different aspects of connected devices. It means that the user has the freedom to choose the cloud vendor, the device manufacturer, and the communication protocol, decreasing the complexity of the diversity in different types of devices.

3. Data Management Services: These services ensure the optimized and proper flow of data on connected devices. It means that the user can select and secure trusted data, and leverage data on any connected devices.

“Adding requisite analytics and visibility attributes, not just from a network management standpoint, but from a broader end-to-end data services and management perspective can lead to a holistic IoT architecture,” said Rohit Mehra, IDC vice president of network infrastructure research, quoted Computer World.
