Intel Corp. on Monday confirmed establishment of its Internet of Things group and revealed some additional information regarding the business unit. Intel has created a new organization to accelerate and broaden its reach into market segments and applications commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).
Called the IoT Solutions Group, this new organization will include the intelligent systems group and Wind River organizations, bringing together the intelligent systems hardware, software, services and platform elements together into one organization. This is the next step in the company’s ongoing activities supporting the proliferation of IoT implementations across the industry. Intel will deliver solutions for companies that are investing in technologies to both drive operating efficiencies and create new services by connecting devices to each other and the cloud to transform their businesses.
Intel IoT group will promote products like low-power Quark processor for wearable or connected devices that do not need a lot of performance, but that benefit from extremely low power consumption. In addition, the division will sell various low-power Atom system-on-chips for such devices as vending machines, ATMs, portable medical devices, energy monitors or in-vehicle entertainment systems.
The new organization will be led by vice president and general manager, Doug Davis, a long-time Intel leader and embedded industry veteran and will report directly to the executive office (president and CEO).
