Sierra Wireless (SWIR) (SW.TO) 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
