NXP Accelerates Secure Edge Solutions with Ecosystem Partners

Austin, Texas, UNITED STATES

Off-the-shelf OEM/ODM solutions will be pre-integrated with the EdgeScale suite of cloud-based tools and services to enable secure device provisioning and management

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Computex 2018 -- NXP Semiconductors™ N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI), a worldwide leader in advanced secure connectivity solutions, together with leading global system providers detailed plans today to support NXP’s Arm®-based platform for edge computing applications spanning enterprise, industrial, retail and carrier applications.

Together, the companies will enable deployment of a secure infrastructure for edge computing. It supports emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning inferencing at the Edge as well as cloud-deployed secure edge processing. EdgeScale, a suite of device and cloud services, simplifies the provisioning of secure computing resources at the edge of networks. NXP is working with these partners to enable secure deployment and management of IoT and on-premises computing platforms with scalability, security and ease of deployment.

The collaborating companies develop products based on NXP’s Layerscape and i.MX application processor families for a variety of applications requiring local processing coupled with cloud connectivity. These platforms provide an optimum balance of compute, connectivity, and storage, and are designed for operation in both Enterprise and Industrial environments.

Leveraging the NXP EdgeScale technology and open-source software from Docker® and Kubernetes, these platforms can run a variety of Edge applications from popular cloud frameworks including AWS Greengrass, Google Cloud IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, Alibaba, and private cloud frameworks. NXP’s SoCs provide secure, high-performance, low-latency platforms used in embedded and general computing systems and in networking and telecom infrastructure that connects people around the world.

“Having edge solutions that are secure will play a critical role of the success of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0,” commented Tareq Bustami, senior vice president and general manager, NXP Digital Networking. “We are eager to be working with leading equipment manufacturers to provide easy to use, secure edge computing solutions with cloud connectivity. Collectively we will help deliver smarter, more capable solutions at the edge built on robust security features that are easy to deploy and manage at scale.”

"The delivery of compute closer to the edge, where data is generated, is key to the successful deployment of IoT as we strive toward our vision of a trillion secure, connected devices,” said John Ronco, vice president and general manager, embedded and automotive, Arm. "NXP's EdgeScale platform will enable users and providers to quickly create and deploy optimal solutions for their specific applications."

As part of the EdgeScale ecosystem initiative NXP, continues to work with Alibaba. NXP and Alibaba will leverage and integrate the EdgeScale platform to help create high value IoT applications that support AI and Machine Learning for predictive analytics, connected cars, predictive maintenance, intelligent buildings and edge intelligence.
