British semiconductor firm ARM has acquired Stream Technologies. The acquisition expands ARM's capabilities in the IoT arena, especially around connectivity and device management.

ARM says that the acquisition will allow integration between Stream Technologies and its Mbed IoT Device Management platform, providing a 'single pane of glass' visibility across all devices in all locations and networks.

In a statement, ARM said that Stream Technologies supports physical connectivity across all industry-standard wireless protocols and devices critical for making IoT data accessible

Founded in 2000, Stream is a connectivity management technology provider which maintains more than 770,000 managed subscribers and 2TB average traffic per day. 

Stream provides companies with a build once, deploy anywhere supply chain where any IoT device can be deployed, find a network, self-authenticate, automatically provision and connect to the lowest cost channel, removing the need to interface with multiple systems and develop several business contracts.

The ARM Mbed IoT Device Management Platform is designed to allow organisations to securely develop, provision and manage connected devices at scale. 

Stream Technologies will be integrated with the Mbed IoT Device Management platform to enable connectivity management of every device regardless of location or network.
