Aricent Launches High Performance M2M Gateway Software Framework for the Connected Consumer Market

Aricent launched an M2M Gateway software package for the connected consumer market. Aricent's M2M Gateway software provides M2M connectivity for multiple applications including building automation, security, automotive, energy management, and connected entertainment at home, retail and corporate environment. With the Internet of Things (IoT) becoming a reality, there is an increasing need for disparate devices to talk seamlessly to one another and with the cloud.

It supports various communications protocols and middleware stacks by having an Interworking Proxy Framework (IPF) that helps in connecting disparate devices with one another and with the cloud. The integrated package includes rich connectivity applications and modular and extensible middleware frameworks that support various technology solutions such as IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS); Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA); Universal Plug n Play (UPnP); 3GPP- Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH); Media Transfer Protocol (MTP); HTTP- Progressive Download; Microsoft Smooth Streaming (MSS); Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS); and Miracast. Aricent's M2M Gateway framework can be used to enable many compelling 'connected world' services such as home device monitoring and control; media synchronization and sharing; and remote media streaming. It also support Miracast SINK that enables wireless delivery of audio and video to or from desktops, tablets, mobile phones and other devices.
