Wind River Develops M2M SDK based on Linux

Wind River, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel, introduced a software development environment for M2M applications, based on its embedded Linux operating system and middleware.

The software includes validated and supported middleware stack, including virtual machine, OMA DM, OSGi, TR-069, and home automation. Connectivity options include 3G, Bluetooth, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and Z-Wave across PAN, LAN and WAN networks.

“With the skyrocketing growth of smart connected devices, an interconnected world is becoming a reality. Applications based on systems behavior have become pervasive, and this is the crux of M2M technology,” said Santhosh Nair, general manager of intelligent systems group at Wind River. “Connectivity, security, optimization, and adherence to industry standards are required in order to successfully develop smart connected devices and services, and this is precisely the value that Wind River brings to the table. This platform maximizes the value of M2M technology by building on an integrated foundation of software, middleware, and board support packages with cutting edge tools and development environments.”
