Service for Cloud-based evaluation of Bluetooth Low Energy designs simplifies integration of Nordic products into larger systems making up the IoT
The Gateway App communicates with the nRF Connect for Cloud back-end hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is based on Software as a Service (SaaS) components. By leveraging AWS industry-grade components, the app implements end-to-end data and device connectivity, guarantees reliability, and scales from a few to hundreds of Bluetooth LE devices.
nRF Connect for Cloud currently supports Bluetooth LE solutions but future versions will also support Nordic’s nRF91 Series low power, global multimode LTE-M/NB-IoT System-in-Package (SiP) for cellular IoT. Following Nordic’s established strategy of constant enhancements to its development tools, planned updates for the nRF Connect for Cloud will reinforce its position as an indispensable tool for wireless IoT development teams working with Nordic products.
“nRF Connect for Cloud is a great asset for the rapidly expanding number of development teams building distributed IoT systems that use Bluetooth and other wireless connectivity technologies to connect to the Cloud and back-end systems,” says John Leonard, Product Marketing Manager, Nordic Semiconductor. “The product shortens the previously time-consuming migration from device-to-smartphone to device-to-Cloud connectivity and simplifies integration of Nordic wireless products into the larger systems that make up the IoT.”
nRF Connect for Cloud works out-of-the-box with the Nordic Thingy:52 IoT Sensor Kit, Nordic nRF5 development kit (DK), and software development kit (SDK) examples. A quick-start guide is available from www.nrfcloud.com.
