During February and March 2019, Ayla Networks will have a presence at three significant trade shows in the smart home and commercial kitchen spaces. Each show represents an opportunity to introduce our new AylaIQ diagnostic plug-in solution for the Internet of Things (IoT) to different segments of these important markets. 

Here’s a rundown of the shows that Ayla Networks representatives will attend: 

The NAFEM Show

The annual meeting of the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) will take place February 7 – 9 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Described as “a show that reveals the inner workings of food service success,” the NAFEM Show highlights products from more than 600 of the world’s leading equipment and supplies manufacturers.


The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is North America’s largest trade show dedicated to all aspects of kitchen and bath design. KBIS 2019 will take place February 19 – 21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, showcasing designs from more than 600 leading brands.

AylaIQ: An Easy Way to Bring Legacy Equipment Into the IoT

The turnkey AylaIQ solution—combining plug-in hardware running the Ayla Device Agent with cloud-based software services—provides out-of-the-box Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity to the Ayla IoT cloud for equipment that has an RS-232/RS-485 Modbus serial port. 

Aimed at any enterprise with a large distributed base of deployed assets—such as food service companies and kitchen and home appliance manufacturers—AylaIQ offers many of the advantages of IoT, instantly. 

For example, AylaIQ enables insight into any functions of the connected equipment measured by sensors, such as on/off; temperature; humidity; motion; bin level; flow volumes of liquids or gases; presence of smoke, fire or particular gases; illumination levels; and other performance characteristics. 

As a result, enterprises can monitor functionality and processes of even widely dispersed assets, for performance optimization, proactive maintenance, and enhanced product or service quality. Industries as diverse as building management, industrial automation, food services and logistics can use AylaIQ to minimize truck rolls, perform anomaly detection, improve service quality, and do data analysis that can lead to improved product and support quality. 

The bottom line is that AylaIQ delivers an innovative way for both product manufacturers and service enterprises to realize rapid time to IoT value and extend asset lifecycles at dramatically lower operating cost.
