IoT Platform Provider Ayla Networks and IoT Product Engineering Firm Volansys Announce Partnership to Create Next-Generation Connected Products

HomeBridge Gateway, the First Result of the Partnership, Launches at CES 2017


January 3, 2017

Ayla Networks, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform for manufacturers, and Volansys Technologies, an IoT end-to-end product engineering firm, have established a partnership and have announced the first result of their collaboration: the HomeBridge gateway. Volansys will be demonstrating the HomeBridge gateway at CES 2017, being held January 5 to 8 in Las Vegas, in its Suite 30-131 at the Venetian Tower.


The compact HomeBridge gateway is designed to help manufacturers in the smart home, energy and lighting markets to get to market quickly and cost-effectively with sophisticated and interoperable connected products. Because the HomeBridge gateway includes the Ayla embedded agent for IoT connectivity, manufacturers building products using the gateway can establish connection to the Ayla IoT cloud out of the box, with minimal customization.


“We chose to partner with Ayla on the HomeBridge gateway for two main reasons, starting with the powerful and comprehensive capabilities of the Ayla IoT platform,” said Dhruvesh Patel, CTO of Volansys Technologies. “Second, the Ayla IoT platform has a large number of design wins in the smart home IoT segment, which means that the HomeBridge gateway launches with a strong built-in base in the Ayla IoT ecosystem.”


“Volansys has demonstrated that they understand what the smart home and other IoT markets are looking for—and that they can deliver the IoT features, functionality and expertise that manufacturers need,” said Bill Podrasky, vice president of business development for Ayla Networks. “The HomeBridge gateway is a perfect example of a powerful, affordable, tightly integrated way for device manufacturers to bring interoperable IoT products to market very fast.”


More information about the HomeBridge gateway will be available at Ayla’s CES Booth #41160 in the Smart Home Marketplace at the Sands Hotel, Halls A – D. CES visitors can also learn more about the Ayla IoT platform, attend themed networking sessions and see innovative IoT products from leading manufacturers and service providers—including Volansys Technologies—by registering to visit Ayla’s suite at Caesars Palace.
