Broadens Leadership Position in the Internet of Things Powering Secure and Scalable Connectivity for Household, Commercial, and Industrial Industries
Ayla Networks, a leader in technology and cloud-based services for the Internet of Things, will be at CES 2014 exhibiting with Broadcom Corporation (booth MP25966), Murata Manufacturing (booth 36231), and NXP Semiconductors (booth CP9), in Las Vegas from January 7 to 10.
Live product displays and demonstrations will be available at all three booths. Together with NXP, Ayla will demonstrate how consumers can remotely communicate and control lighting systems with NXP’s microcontrollers and the Ayla Embedded Agent, connecting to the Ayla Cloud Platform and an Ayla-enabled Mobile Application. NXP will also showcase its secure microcontroller in a Linux-based IoT gateway design with an added security layer supported by Ayla, to ensure best-of-breed protection against counterfeiting, piracy, eavesdropping and unauthorized control.
At both the Broadcom and Murata booths, Ayla will demonstrate how Wi-Fi chips and modules powered by the Ayla Platform can turn industrial, household, healthcare, and consumer products into smart-connected products. The Ayla Embedded Agent, combined with Ayla Cloud Services and Mobile Applications, allows consumers, manufacturers, and service providers to remotely communicate with devices, process usage data, and automate intelligent operations. Murata and Ayla will also jointly exhibit the Ayla Design Kit, a $399 out-of-the-box solution for rapid prototyping for design engineers, manufacturer development teams, or for DIY enthusiasts.
“Entering 2014, the tech economy is being driven by the confluence of cloud computing, social collaboration, mobile technology, Big Data, and the Internet of Things. Consumers no longer want simple standalone products and devices. They want to connect them all,” said David Friedman, CEO, and co-founder of Ayla. “Traditional manufacturers need a solution that can enable them to quickly and securely create connections and relationships among objects in the physical and virtual worlds that have never existed before. By working with partners like Broadcom, Murata, and NXP, Ayla helps connect more kinds of products and devices to the cloud and mobile.”
Ayla Networks officially launched in June 2013 with $5.4 million Series A funding, unveiling the Ayla Platform™ which allows manufacturers to create a new generation of connected devices. Ayla has forged an IoT ecosystem that includes leading chip manufacturers such as Broadcom Corporation, Murata Manufacturing, STMicroelectronics, NXP Semiconductors, Universal Scientific Industrial Co (USI), and more. The company is also collaborating with SINA Corporation, one of China’s biggest Internet portals, to bring connected devices to millions of users in China. The first device that came out of the collaboration is the SINA Wi-Fi Weather Station.
Ayla was founded to address the massive changes that are needed to connect “things” to the Internet. The company has developed an end-to-end platform that allows manufacturers and service providers to turn home controls, HVAC, appliances, lighting, and other everyday products into intelligent devices that can collect information, be managed remotely, or perform tasks automatically on behalf of consumers and businesses. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., the company has partnered with major electronics manufacturers, leading venture capital firms, and investors who share this vision.
