Huawei Technologies is launching a complete Internet of Things architecture that consist of a network aggregating node, a software-defined networking-enabled controller and an operating system for IoT devices.
The architecture, dubbed Agile Network 3.0, enables enterprises to build an IoT infrastructure to support the digitisation opportunities in production, manufacturing, and logistics.
“Huawei today announced the launch of its Agile Network 3.0 Architecture at the HNC2015 (Huawei Network Congress 2015) themed “From Agility to Imagination” that is taking place in Beijing. As a highlight of the latest version of Huawei’s Agile Network architecture, Huawei introduced its Agile Internet of Things (IoT) solution.“
Huawei predicts that by 2025, a total of 100 billion connections will be generated globally and two million new sensors will be deployed every hour. However, networks today cannot provide the connectivity to support this, Huawei said. As part of HNC, Huawei launched its Agile IoT Solution, which consists of three core components: Agile IoT gateway, Agile Controller and LiteOS, a lightweight IoT operating system (OS).
“Huawei believes that standardising ICT infrastructure will foster the development of Internet applications, including IoT applications. To address this, Huawei is launching our IoT OS, LiteOS,” said Huawei chief strategy and marketing officer William Xu.
According to Huawei, LiteOS is the world’s most lightweight IoT OS. It is small in size at 10KB and supports zero configuration, auto-discovery, and auto-networking. It can be widely applied to different areas including smart homes, wearable, connected vehicles and other industries, Huawei said. The LiteOS helps to simplify the development of smart hardware to enhance IoT connectivity. In addition, Huawei announced that LiteOS will be opened to all developers, which enables them to quickly develop their own IoT products.
