Antony Passemard

Ayla Networks, whose Internet of Things (IoT) platform-as-a-service (PaaS) delivers industry-leading device virtualisation and management, announced that it will integrate its IoT platform device connectivity and management technologies to Google Cloud Platform (GCP), delivering a powerful end-to-end IoT solution that enables rapid time to market and business value for companies launching connected products.

“We are excited to work with Ayla to provide companies with the resources needed to succeed when developing connected products,” said Antony Passemard, head of product management for Google Cloud IoT. “Combined with the power of GCP, Ayla’s technology will enable more companies to tap directly into Google Cloud’s renowned application enablement, AI, machine learning and data analytics capabilities to deliver the outcomes that meet their business needs.”

Ayla solution on GCP represents a new option for companies

Adding access to GCP services strengthens Ayla’s complete connectivity, device management and application enablement solution.

Through the combined strengths of GCP and Ayla technologies, companies can:

  • Achieve fast time to market by taking advantage of Ayla’s broad connectivity options and user-friendly device virtualisation and management features.
  • Scale connected device deployments securely and with high reliability.
  • Attain rapid time to business value by leveraging Ayla’s flexible data pipeline along with GCP’s powerful application enablement options, both native and partner-based.

“Success in IoT starts with the ability to virtualise any physical device and rapidly connect it with other digital services and virtualised devices,” said David Friedman, CEO of Ayla Networks. “Then, the real value of IoT happens when the data from interconnected devices can be ingested into applications and services able to transform the data in ways that support better decisions and drive business outcomes.”

By integrating with GCP, Ayla will give companies a powerful new option for unlocking the value contained within their connected-device data.

The Ayla IoT platform running on GCP is in beta testing with selected customers and expected to be generally available in Q4 2018.
