LogMeIn and ARM Announce Collaboration to Accelerate Commercial Products on
the Internet of Things
LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart Kit Combines Xively Cloud Services With ARM's mbed
Platform to Reduce Time and Cost of Bringing New IoT Products to Market
BOSTON, May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Innovation District -- LogMeIn,
Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) announced today its collaboration with ARM® to simplify and
accelerate commercial development on the Internet of Things (IoT). As part of
the agreement, the companies are cooperating on LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart
Kit, a rapid prototyping-to-production bundle that significantly reduces the
cost, complexity and learning curve required to bring IoT-based connected
products and solutions to market.
This announcement coincides with the release of LogMeIn's Xively Cloud
Services, a new commercial IoT Public Cloud, unveiled today.
The IoT enables a world where devices, data and places are interconnected with
applications and users over the internet, transforming how people discover,
interact and experience their world. It is made possible through a rapidly
growing class of small, inexpensive yet powerful processors, ubiquitous
connectivity, mobile computing and interaction platforms. The IoT market,
which is predicted to generate between $1.2 trillion^1 and $14.4 trillion^2 in
revenue and represent over one trillion connected objects by 2020^3, has
captured the imagination of businesses and consumers around the world.
LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart Kit combines ARM mbed™, a platform for rapidly
building connected devices using ARM-based microcontrollers, with Xively's
cloud platform, making the IoT a practical reality for anyone wanting to build
Internet-connected devices and associated cloud-based applications, from small
entrepreneurs to established Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). With ARM
mbed for product development, combined with Xively Cloud Services, developers
and businesses can focus on their own innovations rather than on
infrastructure and platforms. This results in accelerated time-to-market, as
developers can rapidly progress from prototyping to volume deployment.
"ARM is increasing opportunities for innovation across the Internet of Things
with easy-to-use platforms and standards that accelerate the creation of
low-power, end-to-end solutions," said John Cornish, executive vice president
and general manager, System Design Division, ARM. "LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart
Kit harnesses ARM mbed to support the development of new IoT products. We are
pleased that LogMeIn shares our vision for an increasingly interconnected,
innovative and energy efficient world."
"The Internet of Things signifies the next major wave of the Internet, one
that we believe could even eclipse both the web and mobile waves combined, and
presents a massive opportunity for businesses that want to create a new
generation of compelling connected products. In order to make this happen,
they need a simple, affordable way to experiment and innovate through a
platform that will enable them to seamlessly move from prototype to commercial
product, and then scale as demand grows," said Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn.
"By working together with leading vendors like ARM, a company that's been a
driving force in the enablement of the IoT, we can deliver a powerful, easy
way for companies to jumpstart their IoT-based connected products and turn
them into reality."
"We are seeing real traction in the Internet of Things market. Three forces
are converging: connectivity, innovative new device designs and a new
generation of technology tools that let manufacturers focus on their core
product innovation instead of on building Internet of Things infrastructure
from scratch. This can be a hundreds of billions of dollars opportunity.
Xively Cloud Services organizes a true end-to-end chain of tools, support,
partners, and infrastructure for smart systems on the IoT," commented Glen
Allmendinger, President of Harbor Research Inc.
Allmendinger added, "With its new commercial offering, LogMeIn is proving it
understands the creative evolution of the Internet of Things.As the value of
connected devices becomes more apparent and the market matures, players like
LogMeIn that can provide complete solutions to enable pervasive interactions
between people, things and systems, will be well-positioned to take the lead
and reap the full benefits of the opportunity."
