Silver Spring Networks announces the expansion of its developer programme

At the Internet of Things (IoT) World 2017, Silver Spring Networks, Inc. announced the extension of its developer programme with the introduction of a new developer portal, developer kits and a simulation tool for application development.

Silver Spring aims to accelerate innovation for the Internet of Important Things™ by streamlining the development process and expanding the number of solution partners with access to Silver Spring’s proven platform. Support for the Arduino developer environment, the simplification of software tools, and the new developer portal will broaden the potential devices and applications that can integrate Silver Spring’s IoT technology into solutions for utilities, cities and industrial companies.

The developer programme is open to new and existing customers and developers who are building the next generation of sensors, actuators, devices and applications within the smart utility, smart city and industrial IoT sectors. Participants of the Silver Spring developer programme can create and test new IoT solutions that can be delivered through the Starfish™ platform-as-a-service (PaaS), which is based on Silver Spring’s proven, secure, reliable and standards-based wireless network and data platform.

“Our primary goal with the developer programme is to provide partners with the open, scalable, and flexible tools and technologies needed to develop the game-changing solutions of tomorrow. As a standards-based technology company, we support and encourage collaboration to help the industry continue to make innovative IoT applications a reality,” said John Marcolini, GM and VP of Product Management, Silver Spring Networks.

“Starfish enables partners to focus on their value-added application, by providing open access to a robust IoT network and data platform. For current customers, the developer programme will help fast-track the creation of innovative connectivity solutions that can improve the lives of millions of people.”

Efficient and rapid creation of next-gen industrial IoT devices

Today’s announcement includes the:

    • Developer Portal – enables developers to create IoT solutions using Silver Spring technology. The Developer Portal connects developers with the Silver Spring engineering community, supporting materials, and step-by-step documentation for the usage of the developer kits.
    • Milli Shield Dev Kit for Arduino boards (US$99.95/AU$134.95) – provides development partners with Silver Spring’s RF mesh IPv6 technology in a form factor designed for battery-operated devices.
    • IoT Edge Router™, Dev Edition (US$249.95/AU$334.95) – connects any sensor to Silver Spring’s IPv6 Starfish platform via standard Ethernet or USB interface on Silver Spring’s IoT Edge Router. The IoT Edge Router includes the ability to develop edge applications on the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution using SNAPS.
    • Starfish Studio is an interactive simulation tool available through the Developer Portal for modeling IoT devices and solutions and enabling easy application development.

The Milli Shield Dev Kit and the IoT Edge Router, Dev Edition are available today in the U.S. and Australia, and are expected to be available in the UK and Europe in the third quarter of 2017, through the Developer Portal. Silver Spring intends to announce availability in additional markets in 2017 and beyond.

Starfish Studio will be available in late 2017. To register for the developer programme, click here.
