Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW) today introduced the Legato™ platform, an open source embedded platform built on Linux and designed to simplify the development of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications from the device to the cloud.

“We expect millions of devices to be connected over the next few years, but there are significant challenges to overcome to enable the Internet of Things,” said Philippe Guillemette, Chief Technology Officer for Sierra Wireless. “One of these challenges is the time and investment required to get a new M2M application from design to deployment and beyond. In building Legato, our aim is to provide a complete device-to-cloud solution for developers, along with tools, support, and a development community to help streamline these efforts and give embedded M2M projects a head start.”

The Legato embedded platform tightly integrates Wind River Linux, a commercial-grade Linux distribution with a rich set of capabilities based on the latest open source technologies, with an M2M application framework and feature-rich tools. It makes M2M application development quicker, easier, and more flexible by providing a tested and validated solution on an established, well-supported open source foundation with built-in connectivity, security, and management.

Developed from the Yocto Project open source development infrastructure, Wind River Linux uses the latest Linux kernel as its upstream source to ensure customers have commercially supported access to the newest advancements from the open source community. Wind River Linux and the board support package in Legato have been validated on AirPrime® WP and AR Series smart modules, and Wind River is committed to providing professional services to Legato customers, including customization, technical support and training.

“For organizations building applications and services for the Internet of Things, long-term stability and support for the solution are critically important considerations,” said Dinyar Dastoor, Vice President of Product Management at Wind River. “Working together with Wind River, Legato provides the support and flexibility they need, ensuring that the time and effort they invest in development are protected over the long-term. This preserves both the longevity of their deployments and interoperability with other systems and hardware over time. Drawing from a heritage of proven technologies and broad vertical market expertise, Wind River can help customers navigate new opportunities for IoT.”
