FORSEC Published Book – AGILE Collaboration

AGILE has collaborated with a Bavarian project called FORSEC. FORSEC has recently published a book collecting their results, in which they mention their collaboration with AGILE. In particular, they mention how UPFROnt, a policy framework developed within FORSEC, that is also used by AGILE, uses the AGILE Identity Management Framework.

Moreover, as UPFROnt is included as part of SEDARI, a framework to store and apply policies to data in the Cloud, the collaboration with AGILE turns SEDARI into an Oauth2 server and OAuth2 provider. They also mentioned that these capabilities are considered essential for IoT applications.

Thank you FORSEC for acknowledging our collaboration. We are pleased that both projects could help each other to achieve their goals!

Announcing the 8 winners of the Agile IoT Open Call #1

This first Open Call was a great success: As Agile’s first open call for projects came to an end, 56 companies from all over Europe submitted their ideas to our open call. After a rigorous selection process, 8 companies were selected as the best fit to continue their project with the Agile IoT Gateway.

AGILE is an adaptive and modular hardware and software gateway for the Internet of Things (IoT) with support for protocol interoperability, device and data management, IoT apps execution, and external Cloud communication, featuring diverse pilot activities, Open Calls & Community building.

Over the first 6 months of 2018, the 8 selected companies will continue to integrate the Agile IoT gateway into their products. Keep reading below for more information on the exciting ways in which the 8 projects will work with us on extending the Agile IoT gateway into their project.

Get your own AGILE Gateway!

Earlier this month, we launched a Kickstarter campaign for the AGILE Gateway.
The campaign objective isn’t to fund the project itself, but to bring IoT closer to the makers with the AGILE platform. The Consortium aims to put forth a solution that encompasses most of the IoT aspects on the market to impact the future of IoT.

You can get your hands on one of the AGILE Gateways by pledging to the Kickstarter campaign or simply back the project without reward (starting at €10). Don’t wait, the campaign ends on November 30!
