As discovered from a link in BlackBerry World, BlackBerry has posted on line descriptions and documentation for it’s BlackBerry IoT Platform. This is basically the infrastructure for developers to develop intelligent connected devices for the coming Internet of Things. With it’s real time OS, server infrastructure and scalable QNX operating system, with inherent security capability, BlackBerry is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this huge opportunity.
The foundation of the BlackBerry IoT Platform is a highly reliable, scalable messaging system used for instantaneous data indexing and storage.
Included in the Platform are Device Software Data Generators, Cloud Services, Data Interfaces, core secure messaging services, Business Logic, Application modules.
These modules provide pre-integrated, tailored tools to simplify and enable the rapid implementation of IoT solutions.
Components of the platform are Data Collection, Lifecycle Management, Device Management, and Federated Identity.
