The package includes a ready-to-run system (Intel Celeron J1900 platform and Microsoft Windows 7 Embedded), IoT server-side software and platform service (WISE-PaaS), a software development kit, technical support service, and Microsoft Azure service certification and integration. With it, designers can take their IoT innovation to market faster and do so with a combined hardware, software, and services package in the IoT Gateway landscape.

For IoT developers and system integrators, the Advantech IoT Gateway Starter Kit gives the flexibility to create and deploy innovative, cost-effective, and secure IoT solutions for a wide array of industrial applications. The starter kit comes in two models: The Ultra Compact Gateway Starter Kit, which is designed for space-saving applications; and the Multiple I/O Gateway Starter Kit, which has broad input/output (I/O) applications.

"IoT projects are complex and take a long time to implement. Customers are looking for a quick and efficient solution to jumpstart their IoT development. The Advantech IoT Gateway Starter Kit not only simplifies IoT deployment, but also creates capabilities to enable application innovation," said Miller Chang, Advantech Embedded Group vice president.

Both starter kits are designed to withstand harsh environments with a temperature range from -20 to 70 C (-4 to 158 F) and have good scalability for networking and versatile I/O communication.

They also provide a powerful turnkey building block to connect various existing things-including machines, devices, and sensors. They unify different protocols under MQ telemetry transport (MQTT), the prevailing IoT unifying protocol, and then empower IoT application development for applications, such as intelligent alerting, big data, and predictive analytics.
