Afero Collaborates with Murata to Develop Secure Radio Module for Smart Devices

ASR-1 module offers scalability and security for businesses’ cloud-connected products.

Today Afero, the IoT platform developer, in collaboration with Murata Manufacturing, announced its development of the ASR-1 module, the central computing device on which Afero is building a secure, end-to-end, Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for the secure connection of every smart device.

The ASR-1 module is a Bluetooth® Smart system-in-package (SIP) that supports ultra-low power connectivity for data communication. It is well designed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Every ASR-1 comes with a security chip that is preprogrammed to operate in conjunction with the Afero Cloud.

The Afero tiny module chip allows developers, manufacturers, and service providers to host all connected devices on a single, secure platform. Murata’s global network of manufacturing facilities ensures that the chip will integrate seamlessly into the manufacturing processes of Afero customers and offers unprecedented abilities to scale production to meet business needs.

“Murata is the most trusted and reliable source of electronic components for the largest and most prominent companies in the world,” said Joe Britt, CEO of Afero. “Our collaboration shows their trust in our company, leadership, technology, and the value of our product and overall offering.”

Mehul Udani, General Manager, Connectivity Solutions, Murata Americas, stated:

“IoT enables a new breed of transformational products and also demands transformational tools.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Afero, whose turnkey platform for secure IoT communication gives our customers the ability to create new and better experiences.”

Accelerating the Reality of IoT Connected Products
Afero provides companies and developers a comprehensive platform that encompasses the three key building blocks for all connected devices: the product, the mobile application, and scalable cloud services. Together, these building blocks allow companies and developers to deliver innovations to the marketplace faster by reducing complexity and by providing a secure connection between devices and trusted data in the cloud.

Afero was built with security as a cornerstone. The platform provides mutual authentication so that all incoming and outgoing data is continuously encrypted and never exchanged without proven identity. The team built Afero to address the problem of a rapidly growing and fragmenting smart device industry.
