NTELS Co., Ltd. (http://www.ntels.com) provides a cloud-based IoT service platform, ALL of THINGS (AoT) for small businesses and startups to create IoT-enabled products and services and bring them to market fast. AoT was showcased last November at the IoT Korea Exhibition 2014.
In addition to AoT, NTELS has been recognized for excellence in providing an open IoT/M2M service platform. Its IoT services lineup includes the Mobius Platform developed for SK Telecom and Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI).
The AoT platform enables open source hardware-based (e.g., Arduino and Raspberry Pi) devices to interwork with it to collect data from these devices, monitor and control them, trigger actions based on predefined conditions. For example, you can connect a WiFi-enabled air conditioner and bulb to the AoT platform. The air conditioner will cool down the temperature of your home before you come home after a day of working in the heat. The brightness of bulb will change automatically according to the brightness of light source, time of day and weather, so you can forget about the lighting switch.
The platform also allows small business makers and startups to freely use SDK and source code for open source hardware such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone, and provides open APIs to make it easy to develop various service applications. With AoT, anyone can also create mashup services that combine multiple data sources without extra coding at the server side.
Currently, NTELS is building a collaboration model with small business makers and startups to help bring their innovative ideas to market through AoT. In the second half of this year, NTELS plans to open the Smart Home service that supports partner products developed through AoT.
“We are anticipating that a handful of success stories of domestic IoT hardware startups will be told in the near future. Our AoT will play a critical role in making all this happen like Quirky’s social product development platform,” said InHo Shin, the head of AoT Department at NTELS.
