Huawei announces IoT architecture, lightweight OS

CHINA tech giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has announced the launch of its Agile Network 3.0 Architecture and introduced its Agile Internet of Things (IoT) solution.
The solution would enable enterprises to build an agile IoT infrastructure, the company said in a statement.
The Agile IoT Solution consists of three core components: Agile IoT gateway, Agile Controller and LiteOS, a lightweight IoT operating system (OS).
“Huawei believes that standardising ICT infrastructure will foster the development of Internet applications, including IoT applications,” Huawei chief strategy and marketing officer William Xu said at the Huawei Network Congress 2015 in Beijing.
Huawei predicts that by 2025, a total of 100 billion connections will be generated globally and two million new sensors will be deployed every hour.
However, our networks today cannot provide the connectivity to support this, the company said.
LiteOS is the world’s most lightweight IoT OS, it claimed. It is only 10KB in size and supports zero configuration, auto-discovery, and auto-networking.
It can be widely applied to different areas including smart homes, wearable, connected vehicles and other industries.
LiteOS helps to simplify the development of smart hardware to enhance IoT connectivity. In addition, Huawei announced that it will be opened to all developers, which would enable them to develop their own IoT products.
Huawei said it is also committed to establishing an industry application-oriented IoT ecosystem by collaborating with upstream and downstream partners to develop industry solutions.
This is part of its approach to develop and provide a Business-driven ICT Infrastructure (BDII).
“BDII requires close business collaboration and joint innovation efforts between Huawei and our partners,” said Yan Lida, president of the Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
“We have been involved in industry alliances, worked with standard organisations in the area of IoT, and established innovative research centres, open labs, and development communities to foster industry development.”
