A key challenge in getting IoT projects off the ground is evaluating technologies, architectures, and concepts – you need to be able to easily build a proof-of-concept and evaluate a platform and design in terms of security, hardware capabilities, integrations, and other key requirements you have … often with limited engineering budget and on a short time frame.

Typically, these evaluations take weeks or even months and involve significant custom hardware and software design just to even get to a prototype. And once you’ve validated the prototype you often have to throw that away and start over to develop a production-grade design. This approach incurs a lot of cost, risk, and delay in getting to market with a robust and complete IoT solution.

The Electric Imp platform is designed from the start to be pre-integrated, secure, production-ready, and easily adaptable – allowing you to go from evaluation to production with minimal engineering effort, short time, and high confidence

To accelerate this process even further, Electric Imp is today announcing the QuickStart Family of impAccelerator Solution Kits, which are off-the-shelf hardware platforms that you can use to kick-start your prototyping and evaluation. impAccelerator Solution Kits allow you to plug-and-play different hardware and software components and assemble and evaluate production-grade end-to-end IoT solutions in record time.

Find out more about the technical details, pricing, and availability in the official announcement:

QuickStart Family helps Fast Track Industrial-Strength IoT

Business transformationPosting this a bit late, but noteworthy nevertheless:

At IOTS World Congress in Barcelona two weeks ago, Electric Imp and Pitney Bowes won an award for “Best Business Transformation Solution”.

Powered by the Electric Imp IoT connectivity platform, Pitney Bowes retrofitted their traditional postage meters into connected service platforms with real-time metering, interactive customer services, rapid postage refills and automatic fulfillment, in-field software updates and remote diagnosis, and other future Connected Commerce services.

With more than 600,000 devices shipped and new devices coming online at an increasing rate (see Pitney Bowes and Liberty Pumps announcements) the number of messages processed by Electric Imp platform is hitting some pretty interesting levels.

We have a message counter board in the office – counting real-time end-to-end customer data messages flowing between the devices in the field and the Electric Imp cloud. This counter is reset every day at midnight PDT.

I took a picture the other evening around 10 pm – see above: on track to easily pass 500 million messages for the day15 billion messages a month.

So if you need massive scalability for your IoT solution, we’re happy to help 😉

Quick wrap-up of the latest news:

Pitney Bowes just announced that they are now rolling out their new SmartLink device to hundreds of thousands of Pitney Bowes postage meters.

SmartLink IoT technology securely connects the meters in the field to the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud and the Clarity SaaS solutions suite (hosted on GE Predix), resulting in reduced costs and operational efficiencies, enabling new services for Pitney Bowes’ clients, and driving higher customer satisfaction. 

The Electric Imp platform is at the heart of this transformation as the industrial-strength, flexible, and cost-effective real-time connectivity platform for the delivery of Pitney Bowes’ revolutionary digital solutions.
