DNP, an SJE Group Japan-based investment, has formed a business alliance with UK based Arm Limited to create a Next Generation Internet of Things (IoT) Business, forging links between high-security edge computing technology and IoT capable of handling large scale data. The project is set to start from December 2019.
In line with the spread of IoT, public attention has shifted focus to edge computing that can be expected to feed into increasingly high-speed communications and more sophisticated data processing. This can be achieved not only through network cloud environment and servers, but also by performing data processing on individual on-site edge devices.
As a first step in the collaboration, the alliance will develop IoT services for device manufacturers that combine DNP’s embedded Secure Element (eSE) that is integrated into edge devices, with Arm's IoT cloud service Pelion IoT Platform. A demo will be released at Arm Tech Symposia 2019 in Japan.
