Announcement of enebular® Enterprise Plan; IoT infrastructure system that accelerates digital transformation

Comprehensive support for commercializing IoT products that gets smarter

2017-10-18

Uhuru Corporation (“Uhuru”, Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President & CEO: Takashi Sonoda) has announced the Enterprise Plan of its IoT orchestration service, enebular. By combining enebular with Uhuru’s track in consulting and integration services, the Enterprise Plan offers comprehensive service from product planning up to operation optimization to businesses seeking commercialization of IoT products. We will start providing the service in January 2018.

enebular is an IoT orchestration service that supports development and operation of IoT products and services. It offers easier utilization of data generated by the huge number of devices using AI and visualization and continues to make products and services growingly intelligent. It enables construction of collaborative distribution systems by making edge devices intelligent and optimizing them based on machine learning, The system is designed to achieve speedy response, reduction of network traffic and storage volume, and high security.

Uhuru released enebular in 2014 as a cloud integration service based on our knowhow obtained in the front line of system development. Since then we have accumulated a record of integration cases in various fields. We moved forward to focus on IoT and reinforced our team with members specializing in semiconductors and cloud services. In May 2017, we entered into agreement with Arm Ltd. as enterprise licensee of Arm® Mbed™ Cloud. The license enables Uhuru to expand the integration domain of enebular to the edge and to develop edge devices and cloud services in a unified environment (Unified Development).

Using enebular, which simplifies data connection in a wide variety of cases, makes IoT system implementation and deployment of new products and services possible in a short period of time. In addition to providing enebular, Uhuru will enhance alliance with solution and sales partners to reinforce our ecosystem aiming to offer added value to customers in the IoT realm. As of today, we are offering various solutions that bring new customer value to reality with partners including Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., NEC Corporation and Ryoyo Electro Corporation.

* Please refer to the description below regarding implementation of enebular on NAONA provided by Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

Usage fee of enebular includes installation license fee, monthly basic charge (fixed) and subscription fee and varies according to the number of devices to be managed and the kinds of assets to be used. The free version will continue to be provided, not including the device management feature, which would be mandatory for commercialization.

We have received endorsement comments from our partners with regard to the announcement of the enebular Enterprise Plan.

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

We would like to extend our heartfelt welcome to the announcement of the enebular Enterprise Plan.
Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. have been engaging in the project scheme, system development and PoC of our virtual sensor platform NAONA with support from Uhuru Corporation. We have adopted enebular after determining that it was best suited for NAONA, a cloud platform which requires connection of hardware that senses varied information and combination, interpretation and output of collected data as spatial information. We also appreciate Uhuru’s expertise in consulting, as is evident in their strong support for digital transformation of the manufacturing industry. Through close partnership, I hope that both enebular and NAONA continue to prosper.

Reference 1: NAONA (Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.)

“NAONA”, a virtual sensor platform provided by Murata Manufacturing, is a cloud platform that senses information that previously could not be digitalized, such as the excitement in the atmosphere or intimacy between people, as spatial information and offers them in visualized form.

In previous IoT systems, design and development had to be done each time according to the application. NAONA categorizes data collected from various sensors into two layers, the objective engine and the subjective engine to allow speedy IoT development.

The objective and subjective engines are supported by enebular.

By using enebular, the way to utilize data from sensors can be designed by combining nodes and flows. The process of measuring “the atmosphere of the place” can be visualized based on a certain amount of data and can be stored as knowledge.

enebular also makes it possible to place the objective engine freely at the cloud, gateways or the edge. This method allows flexible and optimal structuring of the overall system including reduced communication costs, improved performance, stronger security, and protection of privacy.

Reference 2: New emblem for enebular

New product logo
New emblem

The 14 green lines represent all kinds of data generated on earth, with its seven seas and seven continents. The circle represents the moon and the sun, origin of all energy.
Data gets interconnected by enebular, passes through people and things (objects), and creates new values and cultures in the course of being utilized.
It ultimately becomes the power to encourage innovation of people and society beyond the conventional framework.
