A smart home platform, designed as an open and fully interoperable ecosystem, has been developed by Lantiq and IOLITE. The IOLITE platform allows devices of all kinds to be integrated in a home environment and used in a range of innovative applications. The computing power for the platform is provided by Lantiq`s high-performance GRX 300 network processor family.
In the future, smart homes will become the cornerstones of the emerging e-health, e-mobility, e-energy and industry 4.0 markets. The key challenge to achieve this vision is interoperability. The IOLITE platform offers an open smart home ecosystem with a focus on interoperability. The broadband gateway will be the central hub in the connected home, enabling the easy management of all devices, home automation, the IoT and further applications.
The IOLITE ecosystem offers co-operation opportunities and benefits for all participating partners, including users, installers, developers, providers and device manufacturers.
Professor Sahin Albayrak, CEO, Connected Living Innovation Centre, said: “Our partnership with Lantiq is an important step towards bringing routers with built-in smart home functionality into every household.”
“The Lantiq smart home gateway provides the IOLITE ecosystem with the performance and flexibility to offer all the features users expect in future smart homes,” commented Sascha Dern, Head of the Home Networking Components Business Line, Lantiq.
