ClearBlade, NXP Announce Joint Edge Computing Solution for IoT

Enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) software company, ClearBlade, has announced a collaboration with NXP Semiconductors that will see the integration of the ClearBlade Edge Platform into NXP’s Edge Computing solution.

“Providing cloud agnostic deployment and powerful edge computing capabilities requires collaboration with technology leaders,” said Eric Simone, CEO of ClearBlade. “NXP delivers the most advanced edge computing and sensor technology in the IoT market. When combined with ClearBlade’s industry-leading IoT Edge Platform software, this relationship provides companies with the tools necessary to build complex and secure IoT solutions, rapidly.”

Together, ClearBlade and NXP are working to deliver high-performance IoT applications that leverage edge computing capabilities that can be “easily” replicated across many verticals including smart building, connected construction, transportation, retail, smart home, and other industry-specific solutions. This would provide enhanced performance, reliability, security, and device management capabilities. The combination of NXP products and ClearBlade software would also allow companies to reduce the risk and cost of IoT at scale. 

Edge Computing Showcase

NXP Semiconductors will showcase their new comprehensive and personalized edge-computing and artificial intelligence (AI) experience to NXP VIP guests at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, January 9-12. Visitors would get the chance to experience the future of edge computing with hands-on demonstrations of machine learning based facial recognition, remote device management, secured device provisioning to the cloud, and other edge processing capabilities integrated with the ClearBlade IoT Edge Platform.

“The rapid development of IoT, edge computing and decentralized artificial intelligence is creating a major challenge for our customers,” said Denis Cabrol, general manager of NXP solutions. “By combining NXP technology with the Clearblade software platform, we enable complete solutions that will be showcased at CES 2018.”
