Ayla Networks IoT Platform Chosen by LockState to Build Internet-Enabled Secure Access Systems

Ayla's Agile IoT(TM) Platform Dramatically Cuts Costs and Time-to-Market With End to End, Multi-Layer Security Architecture

SUNNYVALE, CA and SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- Ayla Networks, a pioneer in Agile platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT), will provide cloud services and other technologies to enable LockState to bring intelligent door locks and other security systems to market to meet the rapidly growing demand for Internet-connected products.

LockState will use Ayla's technology to power a commercial version of their RemoteLock, a Wi-Fi enabled Internet door lock. With RemoteLock, property owners can issue permanent or temporary passcodes to service personnel, family members or guests without worrying about lock boxes, hiding keys or illegal copying. A security camera that is part of the RemoteLock platform can also monitor and capture activity around the door. LockState looked at several IoT partners and contemplated building its own cloud, but chose to collaborate with Ayla because Ayla's solution was the only one that met its requirements for security, cost and time-to-market.

"We easily saved $500,000 and nine months of development time by working with Ayla and we anticipate saving even more by leveraging Ayla's cloud services to manage our products as RemoteLock gets deployed," said Nolan Mondrow, CEO and Founder of LockState. "But more importantly, an Internet-enabled lock has to still work like a lock. It has to be safe, reliable and never stop working. Ayla's security technology and services provide the stringent performance levels required by our company and our customers."

RemoteLock links directly to phones and other devices via an integrated Wi-Fi module: additional gateways are not required. RemoteLock can operate a year on a single battery charge. LockState will release a commercial version of its RemoteLock this fall and primarily market it to commercial customers and applications like short-term rentals, office buildings and storage facilities where dynamic access control and remote monitoring are a must. Additional consumer locks are in development.

IoT Agility
Ayla's mission is to provide the world with the first truly agile platform for the Internet of Things. Ayla achieves its high degree of flexibility through a seamless fabric of interconnected elements, including embedded agents for devices, cloud-based back-end infrastructure and services, and intelligent application libraries.

Ayla, for instance, has collaborated with leading semiconductor and module companies such as Broadcom, STMicroelectronics, USI, NXP Semiconductor and Murata Americas to develop components complete with software compatible with Ayla's cloud that can be purchased in volume through distribution. Ayla has also designed its cloud infrastructure to accommodate a large number of diverse devices simultaneously.

By adopting Ayla's Agile IoT™ platform and technology, Fortune 500 companies to Kickstarter projects can quickly design and develop connected products and move into volume production. Ayla's platform is compatible with the widest possible variety of communication standards and OSes, including leading radio standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and operating systems such as Linux, Android, iOS. Enterprise-class security is assured through multi-layer authentication, encryption, and policy control managed through Ayla's cloud services and advanced operational portals.

Built-in data analytics enable real-time learning and a virtual device management system allows manufacturers to quickly react to this learning and modify their products -- even after they are deployed in the field. Enterprise-class features include multi-tiered role based access control, remote firmware update management and customer service visibility tools.

The company is collaborating with SINA, the world's largest Chinese language portal, and a number of established U.S. manufacturers on Internet-enabled products. Ayla has also announced plans to build an IoT cloud to serve customers in China.

"LockState has a great vision for connected door locks: provide a highly reliable, simple to use lock that brings sophisticated, high-end commercial features at an affordable price. This system provides alerts and makes it far easier to manage entry and access," said Dave Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks. "By developing and managing an infrastructure for connected devices, Ayla is able to free up companies like LockState to concentrate on creating great new products."

The BPM world is going through some evolution or changes where traditional business process management solutions really have nowhere to go in terms of development of the road map. In this demo at 15th Cloud Expo, Kyle Hansen, Director of Professional Services at AgilePoint, shows AgilePoint’s unique approach to dealing with this market circumstance by developing a rapid application composition or development framework.
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
