1248 launches DevicePilot to manage connected products

1248 will be unveiling DevicePilot at next week’s ARM® TechCon in Silicon Valley, a new as-a-Service solution for managing the growing IoT ecosystem. DevicePilot continuously monitors and manages connected devices over their complete life-cycle and presents a simple dashboard showing how many devices have been deployed, where and by whom, how many are not working and why.

With internet connected products growing at 25% per year, automatic asset management, monitoring and lifetime support becomes essential as projects move from pilot stage to deployment with thousands or millions of devices. The time and operational cost of manually logging-in to each device to perform an upgrade or check if it is working is a barrier to scaling for the future of any connected product.  1248 has designed DevicePilot with feedback from companies in several markets and its application is universal, from smart energy to smart homes and cities to transport systems, as well as industrial monitoring and control.

DevicePilot is delivered as-a-Service (aaS), with nothing to pay or install up-front – and is free for small numbers of devices to trial and integrate the service. With the IoT ecosystem migrating to an as-a-Service pricing model, DevicePilot integrates into this value chain, taking a small percentage of the monthly service revenue in return for enabling scaling by efficiently ensuring that each device continues to deliver its promised value.

1248 is an ARM mbed™ Partner, established to drive collaboration in IoT systems by bringing together leading embedded and cloud companies, component manufacturers, system integrators and OEMs. DevicePilot is integrated with the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform, based on open standards, technology and services to accelerate wider adoption of IoT systems at scale.

“The benefits of IoT are many, but there are also many challenges to successfully deploy an IoT solution at scale,” said Pilgrim Beart, CEO of 1248. “Unlike web or smartphone apps, connected devices must be deployed into the physical world where lots of things can go wrong, which can lead to unhappy customers, expensive support and damage to brand.”

Beart adds, “The IoT needs to work like the Web: through an open ecosystem of interoperating, off-the-shelf products and services, each focussed on doing one thing very well. While some of the ecosystem components required to enable IoT are already available such as databases and web services, we believe that device management is still a major gap in the set of services required for successful IoT deployment – one which DevicePilot is designed to fill.”

“Managing IoT devices is a complex hurdle within the IoT value chain,” said Zach Shelby, vice president of marketing, IoT business, ARM. “The ARM mbed IoT Device Platform makes it easier for developers to build and deploy IoT devices at scale and coupling this with 1248’s DevicePilot will help to alleviate this problem in IoT deployments.”
