Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Fujitsu R&D Center Co., Ltd. have announced the development of a software platform that enables the management of sensors, devices, gateways and the network that connects them.This platform will support the operation and management of an anticipated and growing array of IoT services.
In developing this new platform, Fujitsu Laboratories and Fujitsu R&D Center have defined common Application Programming Interface (API) to enable consolidated management of IoT device and network status, as well as the monitoring information required to analyze the cause of faults.
Furthermore, with the goal of building an ecosystem to simplify IoT service operation and management, Fujitsu Laboratories and Fujitsu R&D Center are working toward making an international standard of the common API for monitoring information used on this platform.
Going forward, Fujitsu Laboratories and Fujitsu R&D Center will add more connected devices and wireless protocols, continuing operational trials on an expanded scale. They aim to implement the technology into a product by the end of fiscal 2016.
