Software for connecting devices to the "Internet of Things"
Authoritative Java and OSGi Specialist in Middleware and Integration Software
Bosch Software Innovations GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bosch Group, plans to acquire ProSyst. The corresponding agreements were signed on February 13, 2015 in Stuttgart. ProSyst employs 110 people in Sofia and Cologne, Germany. The company specializes in developing middleware and integration software for the Internet of Things. This software facilitates interactions between connected devices in smart home, mobility and industry in today's digital world (also known as Industry 4.0). The company's clients include leading manufacturers of equipment, automobiles and computer chips, telecommunications and power supply companies. The deal will soon receive approval from the antitrust authorities. The parties agreed not to disclose the price.
IoT device management
ProSyst solutions are based on the Java programming language and OSGi technology. “On this basis, the company has successfully developed middleware and integration software that has been providing reliable connectivity between endpoints and the central cloud for over a decade. This is critical for the future connection of buildings, vehicles and equipment, ”said Rainer Kahlenbach, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations GmbH. “With Bosch, we have a strategic partner with a strong worldwide sales network. “Through this collaboration, we will be able to play an even more important role in the growing IoT market and significantly expand our global reach,” added Daniel Shelhos, ProSyst founder and CEO. Java and OSGi are used, for example, in so-called smart home applications and in industrial manufacturing. Software written in Java and combined with OSGi technology can be installed, updated, stopped or uninstalled automatically and remotely without the need to restart the device. Remote access is most commonly done through integration software that enables smart control and remote configuration of devices. For example, the program can analyze the received information on electricity prices or a weather forecast and transfer it to the heating system, which switches to economy mode.
Single network for heating, home appliances and CCTV cameras
ProSyst software also takes on the role of an "interpreter" - in order to connect the heating system, household appliances and CCTV cameras in a smart home, they must all "speak" the same language. It is quite difficult when devices from different manufacturers use different communication protocols or cannot connect to the Internet.
Combined with the Bosch IoT Suite from Bosch Software Innovations and the Bosch Group's expertise as a leading manufacturer of sensors and devices, ProSyst software will help our customers launch modern IoT applications faster. to be among the first in new areas of business, "Kahlenbach assured. ProSyst software works perfectly with Bosch IoT Suite, our IoT platform. It mainly complements the device management components as it supports a large number of different protocols. This will significantly improve our position in the market, ”added Kahlenbach.
