In case you missed it, Telit and Oracle last week published a customer solutions brief titled:

Telit Brings Internet of Things Technology Faster to the Automotive Market and Other Industrial Sectors Thanks to Embedded Software Platform

Key quote:

“Oracle Java SE Embedded and Oracle Java ME Embedded are the perfect platform for our 3G and 4G wireless IoT communication modules. “

Java ME Embedded is especially well suited for enabling robust and secure intelligence on the edge in resource-constrained or deeply embedded devices and is being successfully adopted across a number of use cases and industrial sectors, from remote monitoring and industrial control, to automotive and M2M communications. 

Find the solutions brief here (French version here).

Watch more industry announcements and endorsements coming at JavaOne in a couple of weeks.

Haven’t been posting much lately … very busy behind the scenes, more to follow soon.

In the meantime, I’ll be talking at embedded world conference tomorrow with my colleague Andrey Petushkov:

    Session 08/II, Tuesday Feb 24, 14:30-15:00: 
    Delivering IoT Services with Embedded Java: An Automotive Success Story

While many in the industry are talking about the future of connected cars, Java ME Embedded 8 is rapidly becoming a leading connected vehicle software platform starting to ship in millions of vehicles this year. Join my talk to learn more. For more information on the program, see here.

Also, if you want to catch up with me in person in Nuremberg, feel free to reach out via this blog or my twitter handle.
