"Qualcomm Technologies is driving new generations of smart connected edge devices such as 'Gateways' to enable edge processing for IoT implementations, especially in industrial, commercial and medical spaces," said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "Qualcomm Technologies is excited to see AWS, a leader in IoT cloud offerings, launch AWS Greengrass, which is expected to further help customers realize the benefits of IoT edge processing and gateways. With AWS we intend to build a robust IoT ecosystem and enhance this IoT architecture with smart, connected edge devices as a central element, addressing key challenges such as privacy, security, latency, reliability, and data cost affordability in the growing diversity of IoT ecosystems."
At AWS re:Invent 2016 Qualcomm Technologies will feature a live demonstration showcasing efficiencies that could be gained with AWS Greengrass in a facilities management use case employing the DragonBoard™ 410c by Arrow Electronics. Qualcomm Technologies worked with Solstice (www.solstice.com), an innovation and emerging technology firm and AWS IoT Competency Partner, to enable AWS Greengrass on DragonBoard 410c.
