DataArt, the global technology consultancy that designs, develops and supports unique software solutions, announced today its partnership with Espressif Systems, a provider of IoT technology that builds the widely popular ESP8266 and ESP32 chips.
DataArt develops and commercially supports an open source IoT data platform DeviceHive that provides the infrastructure for building scalable and secure IoT solutions across a number of industries including automotive, utilities and smart environments.
As a result of the partnership DataArt developed a custom DeviceHive firmware for ESP8266 chips, that enables zero-configuration networking, supports a wide range of popular sensor devices out of the box and allows the building of local web page enabled devices. The new firmware also ensures direct connection with DeviceHive cloud service, bypassing additional gateway devices and providing a foundation for DeviceHive-ready hardware.
“The partnership with Espressif enhances our ability to provide powerful, innovative, scalable and cost-effective IoT solutions to our clients.” said Igor Ilunin, head of the IoT Practice at DataArt. “We’re looking forward to close collaboration in our future projects.”
