Semiconductor company Texas Instruments has set up what it calls an “ecosystem” of cloud service providers targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) opportunity.

The company says its aim is to help manufacturers using its technology to connect with the IoT more rapidly.

Organizations that have already signed up to the ecosystem include 2lemetry (Denver, CO, USA), ARM (Cambridge, UK), Arrayent (Redwood City, CA, USA), Exosite (Minneapolis, MN, USA), IBM (Armonk, NY, USA), LogMein (Boston, MA, USA), Spark and Thingsquare (Stockholm, Sweden).

According to Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX, USA), each member has already demonstrated its cloud service offering on one or more of its wireless connectivity, microcontroller and processor solutions.

Technologies have also been used to support a wide range of IoT applications, including industrial, home automation, health and fitness, automotive and more.

Texas Instruments says the cloud ecosystem will help its customers to find the cloud service provider that best suits their individual needs.

It adds that membership is open to service providers with a differentiated service offering and value-added services running on one of its IoT solutions.

“We are excited to be a part of TI's new cloud ecosystem, and are looking forward to playing an important role in enabling customer innovation with Texas Instruments-based IoT solutions,” said Kyle Roche, the chief executive of 2lemetry.

“By using 2lemetry's ThingFabric IoT platform, we hope to help TI customers bring their IoT enabled solutions to market faster, quickly connecting and scaling their network of connected products,” he added.
