The Internet of Things is, as its name would suggest, an assortment of physical objects tied into one grand network. The past few years have seen a barrage of innovative hardware released to market: thermostats, mattresses, smart webcams, refrigerators, sprinkler systems, and more. IoT is still in its infancy — as an industry we are still figuring out what makes sense to connect and how to market our solutions. Ultimately, you will need to figure out how to make your bright idea a reality.
Ordinarily, you need to configure your platform to interact with each type of device hardware you want to integrate. That sounds easy up front, but the reality of device integration can induce headaches. More or less, every device speaks its own language and even if what you have communicates through a familiar interface, it likely has its own singular quirks. It doesn’t help that a lot of the more generic hardware coming out is poorly documented. To add insult to injury, when you roll out new hardware or device firmware down the road, you may find yourself back where you started.
This is where Omega DevCloud comes into play. Our shiny new tool is a platform that allows developers to deploy any type of device quickly. With DevCloud, you create your own listener and parser on the fly. Then, you can access everything through our handy RESTful APIs. The particulars of your hardware don’t matter; we take the raw output from your device and allow you to rapidly parse the data. Once configured, it’s ridiculously easy for you to tie in hardware to your own platform/project/app. We have always been about “making it easy” and Omega DevCloud fits into that philosophy nicely.
If you’re developing for the Internet of Things, your job is going to be so much easier working with RacoWireless and KORE. Omega DevCloud ties in directly with our award-winning Omega Management Suite. Whether you’re deploying ten devices or three thousand, you can use Omega Management Suite (OMS) to keep abreast of the situation; OMS makes it easy to track wireless data usage and system activity. With accessibility to a range of strategic global carriers, partners of RacoWireless are able to scale their businesses and accelerate their time to market without the worry of managing multiple carrier relationships across the globe.
