Arm Drives Deeply into IoT with Pelion Platform, Partners with Vodafone to Speed IoT Adoption




Add to Cart

Report Summary:

One of the major challenges facing the adoption of IoT has been the cost, simplicity and security of implementing devices at scale. While the industry has moved forward in offering device and connectivity platforms that simplify the effective monitoring and management of thousands of devices, it is clear that much deeper cross-industry partnerships are still required in order to significantly reduce the complexity and costs faced by organisations when implementing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

This report assesses Arm’s IoT platform strategy, how the Pelion IoT Platform was built, the acquisitions and partnerships that have been established by Arm and what merits the partnership with Vodafone in particular, will bring in order to help Arm realise its IoT ambitions.
