Internet of Things solutions are all about connections that transform business and change lives — from predictive maintenance and operational efficiencies to personalized healthcare and beyond. When you consider that more than 85 percent of today’s legacy systems are unconnected, you’re reminded of perhaps the greatest IoT challenge: integrating the newest technology with existing infrastructure in order to take full advantage of cloud connectivity and IoT data management and analysis.
Intel® IoT Gateways are crucial to addressing this inherent complexity. By providing pre-integrated, pre-validated hardware and software building blocks, the gateways speed the deployment of connecting legacy and new systems and enable seamless and secure data flow between edge devices and the cloud. Plus, Intel gateways have the performance to provide critical analysis and intelligence at the edge, so that only useful data is sent to the cloud and both data transmission and storage costs are better managed.
Since no single person, company, or technology can enable the Internet of Things alone, gateway interoperability and ecosystem collaboration are also key elements to the growth and success of IoT.
In this post, I’ve gathered five examples of how we at Intel are collaborating with our robust ecosystem to deliver the critical interoperability that lets you choose your desired development environment and gets you to exciting IoT innovation, faster. Many include step-by-step guides for building your own IoT solution, so explore, enjoy, and be inspired.
Running Oracle Java* on Intel IoT Gateway Solutions
Internet of Things solution serving machine-to-machine (M2M) and mobile environments integrates Java runtime environment.
Today, the Java runtime environment is one of the most important application development components of an IoT gateway solution. Learn about the interoperability of the Intel IoT Gateways with Oracle Java*, a combination which delivers the analytics, security, and performance capabilities required to process large volumes of events in near real time.

Scaling Internet of Things Data Movement with Amazon Kinesis*
Collect, cache, and distribute high-throughput, low-latency machine data coming from Intel IoT Gateways for real-time processing.
In the past, collecting, storing, and analyzing high-throughput information required complex software and a lot of infrastructure that was expensive to buy, provision, and manage. Today, it’s easier for companies to set up high-capacity pipes that can collect and distribute data in real time, at any scale, using Intel IoT Gateways to send each event to Amazon Kinesis to enable real-time processing. Learn more about how this collaboration can help you turn raw data into actionable information in a connected world.

Simplifying Application Development for the Internet of Things
The Solution Family development framework running on Intel IoT Gateways reduces effort to communicate with legacy devices over various protocols and APIs.
In any IoT solution, devices and sensors must communicate to the outside world using a wide variety of protocols and APIs. To reduce the time and effort required to write and test this code, the Solution Family team has created a tool-based IoT development platform that enables rapid, extensible, and secure IoT development in minutes while preserving existing investments and reducing development costs by 80 to 90 percent. Read the solution brief for details, including a step-by-step guide for creating a simple deployment with the Solution Family product running on an Intel IoT Gateway.

Intel IoT Gateways serving machine-to-machine (M2M) and mobile environments interoperate with an IBM messaging appliance via a simple command line interface.
Two major IoT challenges are connecting legacy devices to the Internet and ensuring that all IoT and M2M communications are seamless and secure. Now, organizations can quickly connect devices of all types to cloud infrastructure using systems developed by Intel and IBM that work seamlessly out of the box. The solution combines an IBM messaging appliance and an Intel IoT Gateway that communicate via the MQTT* protocol, which is much smaller and faster than HTTP. Discover the details and see step-by-step instructions that can get you started.

The IBM Internet of Things Foundation*: Connecting an Intel IoT Gateway to IBM Cloud Services*
Rapidly compose analytics applications, visualization dashboards, and mobile IoT apps.
The IBM Internet of Things Foundation is designed to help you derive value from IoT devices. On the Foundation’s associated developer site, you’ll find recipes that help you gain access to IBM’s cloud services. Craig Owen, a solutions architect with Intel, demonstrates in a short video how to connect an Intel IoT Gateway to the IBM IoT cloud with step-by-step instructions. Craig’s demo of the IoT Cloud Quickstart* connection is especially helpful.
