Giving embedded M2M development a head start from the device to the cloudLegato provides embedded M2M developers with a head start, significantly reducing the time and cost to build their solutions. It provides existing customizable components needed for M2M solutions across a wide range of target markets, including connected cars, smart meters, and industrial automation. Ready to run – The application framework, Wind River Linux distribution, and development environment are already set up. For AirPrime WP and AR smart module customers, Legato comes pre-loaded on the module, allowing OEMs to begin developing immediately. Ready to build – Legato allows developers to focus on the core applications that will add the most value to their own products, because it comes with common M2M features built in to save development time. The Linux base allows it to be easily ported to any external processor, meaning it can be used across a deployment with a mix of hardware solutions and re-used from one generation of hardware to the next. With multi-language support, OEMs can better leverage existing software and the skillsets of their development teams. Ready to connect – Designed for connected products, Legato removes the complexity of wireless integration. Legato seamlessly connects to AirVantage® M2M Cloud and offers robust application protocol interfaces (APIs) that make it easy to connect to a multitude of peripheral devices, networks, and third-party cloud services over both wired and wireless hardware interfaces, with no connectivity expertise required. With the AirVantage M2M Cloud, it becomes easy to securely deploy and update embedded applications over the air. AirVantage can also offer a critical strategic advantage – it allows OEMs, service providers, and their customers to configure and manipulate the data they collect from their connected assets, integrating it easily into their own back-end systems for business intelligence, even in real time when required.
