Israeli company Friendly Technologies has introduced an application generator for a range of IoT applications, including e-health, smart metering, smart energy, agriculture, smart building and smart city.
 
This addition to the One-IoT management platform completes Friendly's offering for IoT service providers.
 
The platform enables remote management of any type of IoT device, including constrained devices via standard protocols such as LWM2M, MQTT and TR-069, as well as proprietary protocols. It provides automated provisioning and remote control of devices, and features a management admin console, technician portal, monitoring and analytics, rules and automation, dashboard, BI and big data analytics, and an API for customisation of vertical applications.
 
IoT dashboards enable visualisation of data from devices, and support analytics, alarm triggering with complex event processing, delivery of data to other systems, and introduction of use-case specific features using customisable rule chains.
 
The platform and IoT applications are designed for carriers deploying IoT services, IoT service providers, device manufacturers and system integrators.
 
Friendly provides carrier-class platforms for IoT, smart home and TR-069 device management. It has been providing TR-069 device management to carriers and service providers since 2007. Today, the firm provides a unified IoT platform for management of LWM2M, MQTT, OMA-DM and TR-069 devices, and a full offering for the smart home.
 
The company's platforms let its customers generate revenue streams in the smart home and IoT markets, such as utilities, transportation and smart cities.
 
Its traditional TR-069 ACS for carriers and xSPs is said to improve the customer experience, reduce costs, provision new devices, monitor QoE, and configure and update firmware remotely, while offering data insights to service providers.
 
The firm’s device management and IoT products are installed by more than 200 service providers and IoT companies worldwide.
