Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced availability of the HPE Universal Internet of Things (IoT) Platform.

The HPE Universal IoT Platform enables the ability to add new functionality and benefits to users, acting as a driving force in building the infrastructure that enables the growth of IoT.

"The value of the IoT lies in enriching data collected from devices with analytics and exposing it to applications that enable organizations to derive business value," said Nigel Upton, Director and GM, IoT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "The HPE Universal IoT Platform dramatically simplifies integrating diverse devices with different communications protocols, enabling customers to realize tremendous benefits from their IoT data, and is designed to scale to billions of transactions tried and tested in rigorous large scale Global Telco and Enterprise environments in a variety of smart ecosystems."

The HPE Universal IoT Platform is aligned with the oneM2M industry standard and is designed to be industry and vendor-agnostic, enabling IoT operators to simultaneously manage heterogeneous sets of sensors, operate vertical applications on machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, as well as process, analyze and monetize collected data in a single secure cloud platform. The HPE Universal IoT Platform provides increased support for long range, low power connectivity, ensuring that LoRa® and SIGFOX deployments can be supported alongside other connectivity protocols, including cellular, radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Additional enhancements to the HPE Universal IoT Platform include:

- Multi connectivity - communication over different types of underlying networks, to acquire IoT data and maintain it in a consistent data model aligned with the oneM2M standard.

- Device Management - standardized device lifecycle management (oneM2M) across disparate IoT gateways, devices and underlying networks.

- Mashup - ability to enrich data from the devices with external data sources, so developing contextual data that provides greater insight.

- Developer Portal - sophisticated application development environment for developers and partners.

- Data analytics - discovers meaningful patterns in data collected from sensors to derive valuable business insights using HPE Vertica and HPE Haven OnDemand.

- Enhance Data Security - utilizes key exchanges and Codec libraries to interpret data flows in a secure manner.

"From multiple back office IT systems and diverse connectivity technologies to business processes, the biggest barrier encountered by enterprises deploying IoT across multiple countries is complexity," said Jim Morrish, Chief Research Officer, Machina Research. "The most important thing a supplier can provide enterprises is simplicity -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise certainly helps with reducing the complexity, pulling together components of an end-to-end enterprise IoT offering."

The HPE Universal IoT Platform is available worldwide and can be deployed on premises or in a private cloud environment for a comprehensive as-a-service model.
