Arkados' LinqUSP Makes it Easier to Connect to the Internet of Things
Internet of Things Device Management Platform Implemented with Tatung and STMicroelectronics Universal Development Kit

NEWARK, N.J., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkados Group, Inc. (OTCQB: AKDS) today announced the implementation of its proprietary LinqUSP device management platform with the Universal Developer Kit (UDK-21), a development kit for Internet of Things device connectivity, jointly released by Tatung and STMicroelectronics.    

Arkados' LinqUSP facilitates simple device provisioning, cloud-based device wellness tracking, SMS and email reporting, and application frameworks for iOS® and Android®. These features make LinqUSP a light-weight, scalable, customizable, and secure framework for connecting IoT devices that allows expert and hobbyist product developers to bring their products to market quickly and inexpensively.  In addition, LinqUSP defines the standards-based computing architecture that manufacturers can realize in their own products, resulting in efficient systems.   

Terrence DeFranco, CEO of Arkados commented, "This implementation marks another milestone in the development and commercialization of LinqUSP.  We are very excited to work with Tatung and ST on this ground-breaking development kit that we believe will enable the next generation of Internet of Things solutions and result in significant sales opportunities for Arkados. This milestone also demonstrates the versatility, scalability, and stability of LinqUSP and we look forward to many more deployments with our partners."

"Currently, the Internet of Things market is filled with disconnected, industry-specific technologies and applications. Our UDK-21 solution is designed to enable a unified platform by supporting multiple network standards, and a standard-based application-development environment.  We are confident that UDK-21 can benefit developers to bring their products to market in a cost-effective and efficient manner," states W.Y. Lin, President of Tatung.  "For example, the applications designed using UDK-21 can be easily ported to our Gateway One.  The developers can also customize the carrier boards for their own products. We believe the concept of re-useable design provided by us, and custom value-added design can be well supported by the IoT community." 

Pre-loaded with a Linux-based software development environment, UDK-21 consists of a module based on the STMicroelectronics' ST2100 system-on-a-chip (SoC) with built-in HomePlug AV/Green PHY communications, and a carrier board that features a versatile set of peripherals.  The UDK-21 uniquely supports other networking interfaces for Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Z-Wave, and GPRS/3G modem.  Quality proven and ready to go, the UDK-21 delivers ease of use, quick prototyping and access to third-party software for smart energy management, structured lighting control, electrical-vehicle charging, smart-city applications, smart-home gateways, agricultural/factory automation, and many more applications. UDK-21 can operate in a standalone mode, in a cluster with other UDK-21's, or with a backend cloud server.
