today announced that Libelium,
a leader in the design and manufacturing of wireless sensor network
hardware, has completed certification of their Meshlium Sensor
Networking Gateway device as ThingWorx-Ready™. This certification makes
the Libelium Waspmote Plug & Sense!™ sensor platform compatible with the
ThingWorx platform - the industry's first application development
platform designed to reduce the effort required to build
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions and sensor applications for the
emerging connected world.
The ThingWorx-Ready Program, recently launched by ThingWorx, allows
hardware and software companies to pre-integrate their product with the
ThingWorx rapid application development platform, greatly simplifying
the creation and deployment of M2M solutions. These companies provide a
wide variety of products throughout the entire connected world value
chain - from software systems and cloud platforms to smart sensors,
devices, gateways and machines. Being "plug-and-play" reduces the cost
and risk of wireless sensor and Internet of Things deployments for end
customers, helping accelerate the growth of the overall space.
"Our aim is to reduce our customers' time-to-market while remaining as a
horizontal hardware provider for the Internet of Things. We achieve both
of these advanages with the integration into the ThingWorx platform,"
stated Alicia Asín Pérez, CEO of Libelium.
Libelium's certification as ThingWorx-Ready creates a pre-integrated
solution that will improve time to market and reduce overall solution
costs for its customers. The ThingWorx-Ready certification exposes
Libelium's hardware technology to the ThingWorx ecosystem of OEMs,
"Smart" application providers, system integrators, and resellers, making
its product a preferred choice for customer applications.
"With the number of connected devices projected to grow from one billion
to 50 billion over the next 10 years the number of connected solutions
must expand at a similarly rapid rate. This represents a tremendous
opportunity for companies that can quickly develop end-to-end
solutions," said Russ Fadel, CEO and Co-Founder of ThingWorx. "Making
our partners' products 'ThingWorx-Ready' exposes them to the entire
ThingWorx ecosystem and further extends the 5X to 10X development
efficiency advantage that a ThingWorx based solution offers."
Libelium (established in 2006) designs and manufactures hardware for the
implementation of wireless sensor networks so that system integrators,
engineering and consultancy companies can deliver reliable Smart Cities
solutions with minimum time to market. All Libelium's products are
modular, easy to deploy and include extensive documentation and support
