Qualcomm Incorporated today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., is expanding its Internet of Everything (IoE) platform with the addition of six new ecosystem providers whose distinct client software for cloud services are now integrated with the QCA4002 Wi-Fi solution and its accompanying development platform. The addition of these providers further simplifies the development of devices that use Wi-Fi to connect to the IoE by increasing cloud service flexibility and making these solutions available in a broader global reach.

“We keenly understand the importance of diverse ecosystem solutions for cloud-based services in the expanding IoE businesses and segments,” said Joseph Bousaba, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. “By integrating these key providers’ software directly into our connectivity solutions, we’re enabling customers to quickly deploy solutions with the most suitable cloud provider for their industry segment.”

The new providers join 2lemetry (an Amazon company), who was previously announced as a cloud ecosystem provider integrated with the QCA4002. 2lemetry provides cloud connect services through its platform, ThingFabric. This includes support for secure socket layer (SSL) connections to provide secure communication between device and cloud. The new providers include (in alphabetical order):
