Universal Internet of Things (IoT) Platform
Deliver Value with Your IoT Solutions
With the HPE Universal IoT Platform, customers acquire an industry, vertical, and client-agnostic solution with maximum scalability, modularity, and versatility. This enables customers to manage their IoT solutions and deliver value through monetising the vast amount of data generated by connected devices and making it available to enterprise-specific applications. Further, use cases both within a vertical industry sector and across multiple others enable new business models and revenue streams.
Agnostic Support for Smart Ecosystems
On top of ubiquitous connectivity, the HPE Universal IoT Platform is common across all HPE IoT offerings and provides federation for device and service management, data acquisition, and exposure to applications. The platform provides agnostic support for smart ecosystems and can be deployed on premises as well as in any cloud environment for a comprehensive as-a-service model.
Benefits for CSPs and Enterprises
The HPE Universal IoT Platform makes it easy for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and enterprises to onboard new IoT use cases and rapidly achieve successful outcomes.
Key Attributes of the HPE Universal IoT Platform
The HPE Universal IoT Platform features one standard alignment, device and vendor independence, and abstraction of the underlying network. The platform incorporates key IoT attributes that offer ease of use for end developers and help reduce infrastructure costs with proven low TCO and high scalability.
The HPE Universal IoT Platform provides a unique, single vendor and single point of responsibility to manage and connect heterogeneous sets of IoT devices and operate vertical applications on machine-to-machine (M2M) devices from multiple countries.
The focus now is on collecting data, validating it, enriching it with analytics, mixing it with other sources, and then exposing it to the applications that enable customers to derive business value from these services.
HPE accelerates the path to data monetisation in the IoT market with pre-defined oneM2M use cases for quick iteration and a data-centric application enablement platform that helps manage and analyse collected data.
The HPE Universal IoT Platform supports simultaneous management of heterogeneous sets of IoT gateways, devices, and sensors. The platform is sensor- and device-agnostic and offers the scalability to manage millions of devices.
Application Designer and Marketplace
The built-in application designer enables rapid IoT app development on web and mobile channels to create new service offerings. The application designer features API monetisation and policy enforcement and includes a partner-oriented layer for securely managing partners and developers.
With oneM2M compliance, the HPE Universal IoT Platform allows you to operate applications from different verticals with total security and deploy server IoT use cases on a customer basis with specific privileges.
Transforming Industry with IoT
IoT is accelerating, and HPE is one of the driving forces in building IoT infrastructure that enables that growth. The HPE Universal IoT Platform scales to billions of transactions and is tried and tested in the most rigorous large scale global environments.
The HPE Universal IoT Platform can be deployed with the connected vehicle market to provide value-added services beyond the traditional telematics and infotainment. Using information gathered from other vehicles and infrastructure, real-time contextual information can be passed to a specific car or other road users for a better intelligent driving experience.
The city of today needs to accommodate a growing population of workers without sacrificing ease of transportation, acceptable commuting times, or aesthetic appeal. The HPE Universal IoT Platform helps transform cities to be more efficient, agile, and resilient to improve quality of life, drive economic growth, and create sustainable communities.
With the rising costs of energy and increased environmental and regulatory pressures, many governments are looking to improve their street lighting operations and infrastructure. The HPE Universal IoT Platform can manage these applications and save customers both energy and money.
Smart metering is changing the energy and utilities marketplace. Driven by regulatory requirements, millions of residential electricity, gas, water, and heat meters are becoming smart. The HPE Universal IoT Platform provides the required scalability for interfacing and collecting metering data.
From wellness and health monitoring to smart utility meters, integrated logistics, and self-driving drones, this world is fast becoming hyper-automated. The HPE Universal IoT Platform enables connection and information exchange between heterogeneous IoT devices and IoT applications.
The HPE Universal IoT Platform is aligned with oneM2M industry standards. It enables customers to monetise the data collected from their IoT estates by leveraging HPE’s carrier-grade telecom application portfolio and considerable experience in the telco sector to create a horizontal platform with agnostic connectivity, protocols, industry verticals, and use.
For municipalities and local councils, waste management is an area targeted for improvement. With special sensors that monitor waste container statuses, the HPE Universal IoT Platform collects and preprocesses information. It leverages sophisticated algorithms – established from years of field experience – to generate alerts and dynamic, more efficient collection rounds.
