Huawei builds OS for Internet of Things
LiteOS, unveiled in Beijing, designed to ‘standardise infrastructure’
Chinese tech giant Huawei today introduced an open-standard architecture, including a custom-built operating system, designed specifically for the Internet of Things, Reuters reported.
The hardware manufacturer presented the Agile IoT architecture and LiteOS platform at an event in Beijing, signalling a new phase in IoT competition with US companies such as Intel, Google and Cisco.
LiteOS will allow household and business devices to communicate with each other through the Internet and the Agile architecture is designed to make it easier for machine manufacturers to connect their products.
"Standardising infrastructure will foster the development of Internet applications, including 'IoT' applications," said William Xu, chief strategy and marketing officer, Huawei.
