ARM mbed announces the ARM mbed Cloud, a new standards- and cloud-based SaaS solution for secure IoT device management. It simplifies connecting, securing, provisioning and updating of devices across complex networks with optimizations built-in for energy-efficiency. Its an 'any device, any cloud' service for OEMs to scale IoT quickly. Bee Hayes-Thakore talks at ARM TechCon 2016 about mbed Cloud, mbed OS5.2, new developer tools, mbed Partnership, mbed Enabled and the new mbed Connect Shenzhen summit coming up on December 5th 2016.
Doug Anson, ARM IoT Solutions Architect talks about how ARM has worked with IBM to integrate ARM mbed with IBM Watson IoT platform on Bluemix Cloud Platform. The demo uses ARM Cordio Bluetooth sending a Google Physical Web URL to the Chrome Browser in the smartphone, creating an ability for the Chrome browser to interact with Bluetooth, enabling payment for parking meters by Bluetooth from the parking meter. Hooking up with the backend through IBM Watson, integrating with IBM's payment service and blockchain service.
