Wind River has selected the cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) software platform from Axeda in the US to integrate with embedded devices running its VxWorks 8 and Linux operating systems. 

This OEM agreement allows the Axeda Machine Cloud to integrate directly with the Wind River Intelligent Device Platform, a complete software development environment to secure, manage, and connect intelligent gateways. This is an integral part of Intel Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things, a family of platforms that offers companies a key building block to enable the connectivity of legacy devices and other systems to the IoT via gateway.

Through these product integrations, Wind River will enable its customers to connect their devices to the cloud. New Wind River capabilities offered through this agreement will allow customers to easily aggregate data off the edge to offer business intelligence that can be used to protect investments, generate new revenue streams, maximize existing infrastructure, and improve business processes.

"Wind River’s collaboration with Axeda builds on our IoT strategy, which focuses on providing the intelligence that powers interconnected systems, and supplying the software foundation that enables IoT networks and connected devices to perform reliably, safely, and efficiently," said Barry Mainz, president of Wind River. “Customers will be able to seamlessly connect, manage, and securely use connected data for actionable information and valued services. We are very pleased to advance IoT with the unique collection of assets that we bring to the table with Axeda and our parent company, Intel.”

“The partnership with Wind River will accelerate the delivery of new IoT solutions to the global market,” said Todd DeSisto, Axeda president and CEO. “By working closely with Wind River and Intel, we will be able to address market demands from enterprise customers for more complete IoT solutions with ever-increasing capabilities and greater performance.”
