Ayla Networks Adds IoT Platform Enhancements for Manufacturers

Ayla Networks has announced enhancements to its Internet of Things platform for manufacturers of connected products. The platform enhancements will enable manufacturers to forge closer customer relationships and improve their IoT return on investment.

"In the seven years since founding Ayla, we've seen manufacturers' questions evolve from, 'How do we connect to the IoT?' to, 'Now that we're connected, what should we do next?'," said David Friedman, Ayla Networks' CEO and co-founder, in a prepared statement. "These latest enhancements to the Ayla IoT platform encourage greater consumer adoption and brand affinity. By continually advancing our Ayla IoT platform and ecosystem, we enable manufacturing businesses to evolve at the speed of IoT." The enhancements to the platform include features designed to spur greater consumer adoption of connected products and to reduce operational costs.

Amazon Alexa integration is now available. This feature allows manufacturers to tap into consumers' strong desire for smart-home voice control. Manufacturers can implement Alexa Smart Home Skills on their connected products via the Ayla IoT platform, without writing code or running servers on AWS.

Ayla recently announced Ayla Insights 2.0, an upgrade to its IoT platform service that provides actionable IoT data to help manufacturers improve the product lifecycle. Ayla Insights 2.0 business intelligence can lead to cost savings in IoT product creation, as well as opportunities for new revenue streams based on warranty, support, maintenance, and other value-added features and services.

The Ayla platform update includes integrations with mnubo to provide descriptive IoT insights and advanced data science, including IoT machine learning and artificial intelligence. Ayla's manufacturer customers can integrate mnubo to perform real-time operations monitoring, predictive maintenance and product usage analytics. Companies can use mnubo's analytics to reduce their service and maintenance costs through proactive support that avoids unnecessary truck rolls, improve the efficiency of spare parts inventory management, and gain greater visibility over their installed base of Ayla-connected products, in real time.

Mobile data streaming service (DSS) provides the automatic updating of consumer IoT mobile apps from the Ayla cloud. Multi-factor authentication provides an extra security layer for IoT products, to help consumers feel more confident in purchasing and using products, such as connected door locks. WeChat support allows the millions of WeChat users throughout Asia to use their WeChat credentials to log in, then set up and operate Ayla-enabled IoT devices.
