Working closely with Wyless, the leading global M2M managed services provider, Logic PD has introduced _3df0d223_ that provides proof-of-concept technologies for fully-connected, user-friendly products.
Catalyst integrates the expertise and technologies from a wide range of Logic PD partners, including Wyless, to demonstrate the level of product innovation that is available today. Streamlining this degree of technology integration saves companies significant time and resource costs, and dramatically accelerates time-to-market for new, innovative products.
Until now, many companies have struggled to design and develop new products using advanced technologies because their products require longer lifecycles, a deeper level of customization than off-the-shelf consumer devices can provide or adherence to strict regulatory requirements. Facing these challenges, many companies employ soon-to-be obsolete technologies for their product development needs. Catalyst is breaking down these long-standing barriers and time constraints to using cutting-edge technologies to develop innovative products faster.
Catalyst offers a number of benefits that combine consumer expectations with highly specialized market needs, including:
- Rapid customization – Provides a personalized offering when an off-the-shelf consumer device won’t suffice
- Time-to-market – Use of production-ready modules speeds time-to-market through an integrated design and manufacturing process
- User experience technologies – Applies sensory user interfaces (touch, haptics, audio) and utilizes high-definition (HD) capable displays
- Reduced risk – Supports long-lifecycle design; modular approach addresses complexity and sustainability of devices; includes hardware and software developed under an ISO 13485 process, wireless certifications and more
Dan McDuffie, CEO, Wyless said:
“Catalyst underscores the value of Logic PD’s partnership with Wyless.
We help to ensure that Catalyst delivers on the promise of anytime-anywhere device connectivity by enabling multiple carriers – such as T-Mobile, AT&T, and Telefonica – through a single business relationship.”
“One of the often overlooked details of creating M2M applications is securing a cellular data plan that operates with the different cellular carriers where the M2M devices are deployed,” said KurtLarson, director of product management, Logic PD. “Wyless addresses this difficulty by managing a global wireless data network and is the Managed Service Provider (MSP) of choice for M2M applications.”
The Catalyst modular technology platform is demonstrated through a handheld Google Android device featuring a 7-inch multi-touch display and full RF connectivity (802.11, Bluetooth®, GPS, cellular, 3G/4G) for anytime, anywhere access. Cellular connectivity of the demonstration handheld is managed by Wyless. The Catalyst roadmap includes Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is based on Texas Instrument’s DaVinci DM3730 ARM® Cortex™-A8 video processor.
