Secure, Scalable, Manageable

The Internet of Things (IoT) has enormous potential to drive economic value and social change. But with 85% of things still unconnected, and security threats pervasive; the industry has yet to tap IoT’s enormous potential.

What Is the Intel® IoT Platform

The Intel® IoT Platform is an end-to-end reference model and family of products from Intel, which works with third party solutions to provide a foundation for seamless and secure connection of devices. The model delivers trusted data to the cloud, and on-going value through analytics.

The Intel® IoT Platform breaks down the current obstacles most businesses face when looking to implement IoT strategies. It provides an end-to-end platform for connecting the unconnected—allowing data from billions of devices, sensors, and databases to be securely gathered, exchanged, stored, and analyzed across multiple industries.

It helps deliver innovations to market faster, reducing solution complexity, and delivering actionable intelligence by offering a defined, repeatable foundation for how devices will connect and deliver trusted data to the cloud.
