Arrayent Called The Cisco of Internet of Things

first_imgArrayent is a new Internet of Things company being billed as the “Cisco of small things.” It is basically middleware for companies wanting to connect their products to the Internet. In particular it’s targeting smartphones, which is a trend we’re closely tracking too. Arrayent made its first public appearance earlier this month at CES. Arrayent offers a “turnkey communication system” called the Internet-Connect System, which enables product companies to connect their products to smartphones and computers via the Internet. It counts toy company Mattel and audio/video components supplier Monster Cable among its early customers.“There was a lot more interest in connecting products to the Internet this CES over 2009,” according to Arrayent Vice President of Sales and Marketing Bob Dahlberg. He told ReadWriteWeb that there were two segments in particular that were interested in Arrayent’s system.

The second use case Arrayent saw at CES was companies in the home health monitoring space, who were looking for a way to “connect their products to web based applications such as Google Health, Microsoft HealthVault or [their] health provider’s system.” A big part of Arrayent’s marketing pitch is that it is a lower cost alternative to connecting products to the Internet. According to the company, it is “1/3 to 1/10 the cost of alternative (piece part) solutions.” Arrayent hangs its marketing hat on the emerging trend of Internet-connected consumer appliances. As other examples of this trend, Arrayent notes Amazon’s Kindle, Apple’s iTouch, Nordic Track’s iFit and Schlage’s home automation product LiNK (mentioned in this August 2009 post). The company has identified the following applications as potential markets for it to pursue:Energy and water monitoring and control from a smartphone or web browser.Home control (door locks, home security, window shades, smoke alarms, pipe freeze alarm, flood alarms, power strips, thermostats, appliances.)Toys and entertainment devices such as e-book readers, personalized radio, and connected physical toys.Home health and presence monitoring that connect patients to doctors and family members.Automobile location services, remote control access, and engine monitoring.Arrayent is an interesting company, because it has correctly identified a gap in the massive consumer products market. According to the company, most consumer product companies “lack Internet-connect expertise.” I agree with that assessment and think that Arrayent is positioning itself well to provide that expertise. Given the potential of Internet of Things to revolutionize consumer products – because a great many more products will become Internet-connected in the coming years – we’re picking Arrayent as one to watch. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

PBA approves deal that sends Erram to NLEX

MOST READ Erram was one of the marquee big men in the Philippine Cup, averaging 14.1 points, 13.8 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game.With the acquisition of Desiderio and Tratter and if the Elite gets to sign its top pick, Ray Parks, Blackwater can build a very young core that will include forward Mac Belo and shooter Mike DiGregorio. But Blackwater will have to draw a lot from bigs Reymar Jose, James Sena and Dave Marcelo to make up for the absence of the 6-foot-7 Erram gone.Under the radar though in that three-team trade was TNT’s acquisition of Miranda, who had evolved into a quality big man under Guiao. Miranda gives the KaTropa a serviceable big man to match up with the likes of June Mar Fajardo and the San Miguel Beermen and Greg Slaughter and the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue View comments PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening JP Erram (left) will bring his shot-swatting prowess to NLEX, which surrendered its two first-round rookies this year to Blackwater.

News of fatwa against Nusrat found to be fake

first_imgKolkata: The news of fatwa given by Darul Uloom to Nusrat Jahan for wearing bindi and marrying a non-Muslim, which is being circulated in national media for the past couple of days, has been found to be false.An investigation carried out by fact-checking website AltNews has proved that the news regarding Nusrat’s marriage is a fake one. Nusrat, the Trinamool MP from Basirhat who has recently married businessman Nikhil Jain, took her oath in Parliament in Bengali and touched the feet of the Speaker. Nusrat’s gesture was appreciated by social media and media alike. The controversy began after a national television channel telecast the statement of Asad Kashim of Darul Uloom, portraying him as an Ulema. He had allegedly criticised Nusrat’s gesture, her marrying a non-Muslim and wearing bindi.

AltNews got hold of Asad, who told the reporter that the representatives of two national channels had asked him for his comment on the matter and he had expressed his views, which have nothing to do with a fatwa. He has also denied any connection with Darul Uloom. There is nothing on the fatwa in the official website of Darul Uloom either. When contacted by AltNews, a senior official of Darul categorically denied the issuance of any such fatwa against Nusrat.last_img read more
