Libelium Integrates Axis Communications for IoT Gateway

By Chrissie Cluney July 11, 2017

Libelium has launched two new partnership programs to integrate devices from hardware companies and new radio communication protocols. These new services allow integration of devices with the IoT Gateway Meshlium and new communication protocols apart from the 16 already supported. The company’s aim is to enlarge the IoT ecosystem and to offer interoperability with any company in the whole IoT value chain.

Libelium’s Hardware Partner Program will allow the integration of streaming devices like sensor nodes, cameras, microphones, data loggers, PLCs and other industrial devices. Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, has been the first company to join the program and has integrated a camera with Libelium’s IoT Gateway. The aim of this new service is to give businesses new opportunities in the IoT arena to be used in smart projects connecting directly with more than 40 Cloud platforms already compatible with Meshlium.

“Axis cameras and Libelium sensors can be combined and connected to any cloud platform to allow the collection and aggregation of all these various data streams in an easy and integrated manner. Advanced analytical algorithms can then leverage this smart data aggregation to generate valuable information that can help solve some of the most common urban challenges, and this can be customised for each city’s needs”, said Andrea Sorri, director of business development city surveillance, Axis Communications.

Libelium understands and attempts to keep up with the ever-changing IoT. To that end, the company has launched the Radio Partner Program to enable the integration of new technologies. This new facility offers two options. The first option is to develop custom projects. The other is for radio technology manufacturers.

“We are extending the interoperability of our IoT ecosystem because we are currently working in the whole IoT value chain, not only from sensors to the Cloud”, said David Gascón, CTO, Libelium.

One of Libelium’s main goals is to ease the IoT adoption in all the verticals of the market around the world. To this end they have created 62 kits that are ready to be offered. Some of them include the Smart Agriculture Solution Kit, which is used to monitor soil and environmental conditions in cereal crops, vineyards, greenhouses or fruit trees. Telit Smart Cities Solution Kit controls key parameters in cities like air quality, noise or luminosity. The Smart Parking Sigfox Solution Kit to monitor parking occupancy in cities or business centers. The Sensorup Development Kit allows users to program a solution on top of the Libelium-SensorUp platform and test it with real sensors.

Libelium is leading the way in IoT and how businesses work with the new technology. They accomplish this feat by offering kits that can be utilized in the everyday life of a company or business.
