The Bluegiga APx4 is a small form factor, low power System-on-Module, that includes the latest wireless connectivity standards: 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. The APx4 is based on Freescale's i.MX28 processor family and runs an embedded Linux operating system based on the Yocto Project[TM]. In addition to integrating the 454MHz ARM9 processor, the wireless connectivity technologies and Linux operating system, the APx4 also includes with several built in applications, such as the 802.11 and Bluetooth 4.0 stacks, Continua v.1.5 compliant IEEE manager and many more. This combination provides an ideal platform for designing multi-radio wireless gateways that enables fast time-to-market and minimum R&D risks.

"Integrating Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart Ready technologies into a single platform is far from a trivial challenge - especially when these technologies need to seamlessly co-exist. This is exactly what the APx4 accomplishes in addition to providing an ARM9 based Linux platform that allows our customers to quickly and simply add their own applications into it", comments Mikko Savolainen, Bluegiga's VP of Product Management.

The Bluegiga APx4 software can be easily extended or tailored customizing the Linux operating system with applications. The motherboards for the APx4 can be easily extended to include almost anything from 3G modems to Ethernet and audio interfaces to and touch screen displays. The Bluegiga APx4 is an ideal product for applications requiring wireless or wired connectivity technologies and the processing power of the ARM9 processor, such as health and fitness gateways, building and home automation gateways, M2M, point-of-sale and industrial connectivity.

"We have seen the demand for wireless connectivity solutions clearly increasing. The APx4 wireless System-on-Module is directly designed to address these connectivity needs and provide a platform for rapid development of new innovative wireless gateways, says Tom Nordman, Bluegiga's VP of Sales and Marketing, adding that "Bluegiga is very excited to be able to leverage its long experience in wireless connectivity by expanding our product portfolio to include this type of new solutions."

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
