DeviceTone Joins Linux Foundation’s EdgeX Foundry

Contributes to building a common open framework for IoT edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components

Portland, Oregon; Boston, MA – Technology company DeviceTone™ announced today that they have joined the Linux Foundation’s EdgeX Foundry™ and will actively collaborate with the growing community of members to develop a full edge software platform (the “Edge Platform”) that is designed to facilitate hardware interoperability in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.

EdgeX Foundry’s Edge Platform encompasses a set of core microservices, a methodology for creating interoperable device interfaces, an underlying deployment framework and a reference implementation for system management.

Companies are seeking flexible and adaptive solutions to the challenges associated with the edge of the IoT. They need to quickly and securely bring connected products to market in a way that gives them freedom of choice in the tools and platforms they use to build their solutions, while maintaining the flexibility they need to adapt to the dynamic and changing requirements of the business. DeviceTone delivers a secure and open solution that empowers companies to quickly and easily create connected products that they can manage at scale.

DeviceTone joins Analog Devices, Dell EMC, Samsung and over fifty other member companies in the growing EdgeX Foundry community. Launched in April, 2017, the EdgeX Foundry Project supports an open source, technical community to benefit the ecosystem of the EdgeX Foundry Project product providers, solution providers and users, focused on creating code, packaging releases and addressing end-user use cases.

The EdgeX Foundry Project hosts the infrastructure for the technical community, establishing a neutral home for community infrastructure, meetings, events and collaborative discussions and providing structure around the business and technical governance of the EdgeX Foundry Project.

“DeviceTone is pleased to join the growing EdgeX community,” said Eliav Gnessin, CTO of DeviceTone, “Our solution simplifies connected product development. We plan to integrate DeviceTone’s edge gateway service into EdgeX to empower companies with tools that make it simple to scale embedded connectivity in connected products to the growing ecosystem of EdgeX solutions.”
