Huawei announced its Agile IoT (Internet of Things platform) today at the Huawei Network Congress in Beijing. Chinese network giant Huawei have designed a new operating system LiteOS that focusses on letting both home and business appliances communicate with one another through online. There are three main components of the platform, the Agile Controller, IoT gateway, and LiteOS, an IoT operating system.
At an event held in Beijing, Huawei executives introduce its “Agile IoT (Internet of Things platform)” architecture including an operating system called LiteOS to control basic devices.
Huawei executives touted Agile architecture as a free and open standard that would allow hardware designers to easily make connectable devices. Huawei also showed off fully customizable wireless equipment that could be installed in business settings.
Huawei says that its new “lightweight” OS can streamline the whole process. The Liteos software taking up just 10KB in size, and is designed to run on minimal power, making it suitable for a wide range of hardware, including microcontrollers and ARM Cortex embedded processors.
LiteOS can be applied to several kinds of appliances like connected vehicles, smart homes and wearables. Hardware running on Liteos can be controlled remotely, or collect data. In addition, the operating system can be installed on devices already running Google’s Android OS, and it can connect with other third-party devices too.
Huawei believes that its flexible architecture will help to further connect the billions of devices it predicts will be part of the IoT world by 2025.
