Ever wondered why it is so hard and expensive to build and deploy connected products and IoT solutions based on cellular connectivity? And how it can be done better?

Learn from Electric Imp CEO Hugo Fiennes — the guy who built the iPhone at Apple and architected the first Nest thermostat — about how Electric Imp reinvented cellular IoT.

Hannover messe Electric Imp will be participating at Hannover Messe next week, as part of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) pavilion and Industrie 4.0 – IIC security demonstration

If you are in Hannover, please visit us in Hall 8, Stand C24 (IIC Pavilion), Booth 13. Or schedule a briefing with us.

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:

Electric Imp and New Relic team up for IoT Workshop

Electric Imp and New Relic are teaming up to get cool data from your IoT device and show you how to implement IoT application monitoring at the edge.

Come to the IoT Workshop on June 28th to see how you can get live data into your New Relic instance using an Electric Imp, such as:

  • Environmental data (humidity, temperature, etc)
  • Device operational data (WiFi signal strength, power levels, and more)
  • Communication and application performance data (communication round-trip time, application statistics, etc)

You’ll learn how easy the Electric Imp-New Relic integration is and how to use New Relic to optimize your real-world IoT application – plus, solve our workshop challenges! Bring your laptop, and think of cool ideas if you’d like to explore Electric Imp and New Relic tie-ins of your own!

The event is FREE at happens at the New Relic offices in San Francisco on June 28. Register here.
