Brainium Core Software and SmartEdge Agile Adopt Microsoft IoT Plug and Play

According to a recent announcement, Octonion, the developers of the Brainium Core software, and the SmartEdge Agile IoT device from Avnet have adopted Microsoft’s new IoT Plug and Play. IoT Plug and Play is designed to help software integrators and IoT developers quickly prototype, pilot, and produce end-to-end IoT solutions using Azure IoT certified devices.

IoT Plug and Play was unveiled at this year’s Microsoft Build Developer Conference in Seattle, Washington. Developers who purchase SmartEdge Agile with IoT Plug and Play will have access to Azure IoT Central, providing resources and tools that allow developers to connect, monitor, manage, and scale their IoT assets.

Brainium, SmartEdge Agile from Avnet, and IoT Plug and Play together reportedly address many different challenges in the marketplace for developers creating IIoT (Industrial IoT) solutions.

“Octonion created the Brainium Core Software so developers could quickly deliver prototypical IoT and AI-based end-to-end solutions,” said Ongan Mordeniz, COO and co-founder, Octonion. “We noticed a huge gap in the marketplace between device skills and cloud skills. The engineers who create devices don’t have the expertise to facilitate connectivity, and the developers who integrate connectivity don’t design devices. Octonion’s solution fills that gap, bridging these two areas of specialization with a single, out-of-the-box product.”

“The integration that SmartEdge Agile provides is the key to being able to gather data from on-site devices, analyze it, and put it into a meaningful context for users,” continued Mordeniz. “The product’s AI sensors can conduct automated predictive maintenance, including the ability to track movement, vibrations, and activity for equipment, livestock, or even employees on a warehouse floor. As part of IoT Plug and Play, we’ll be able to drive the trajectory of the IIoT market trend forward, where software integrators and developers will be able to scale-up and manage their connected projects quickly, delivering proven, mature AI technology and Security at the Edge in one package.”

“Octonion is focused on creating ways to bring sophisticated IoT hardware and software to market faster with simplicity, realizing the potential that the Internet of Things has been promising for years,” said Sam George, director, Azure IoT, Microsoft. “Octonion’s Brainium Core Software with IoT Plug and Play will help drive widespread adoption of smart devices, allowing developers to incorporate high-performance IoT functionality, leveraging edge computing to achieve AI capabilities and versatile connectivity.”
