Scale IoT Onboarding - Any Device to Any IoT Platform

Today, customers are struggling with “hard-coded,” manual provisioning methods to onboard devices to IoT device management and cloud analytics platforms. This can take up to an hour per device, is unsecure, and presents a costly configuration process for device manufacturers.

Intel has worked with the ecosystem to deliver Intel® Secure Device Onboard (Intel® SDO), a neutral onboarding service with simplified ecosystem enablement to put more devices into service faster. 

Intel® Secure Device Onboard (Intel® SDO):

  • Zero-touch onboarding service
  • Takes seconds at power on
  • Automated to dynamically discover and provision to customer’s IoT platform of choice
  • Unique privacy preserving hardware security model
  • Designed-in to silicon, ready for Device ODM “one to many” enablement

Intel and Arm Shared Vision and Collaboration

Intel and Arm are collaborating on a shared vision to connect any device to any cloud. This will shift the industry from siloed supply chains to a harmonized framework for the design and sourcing of secure, connectable devices.

“Intel and Arm are simplifying one of IoT’s most complex and challenging barriers with regard to streamlining the manufacturing and security deployment workflows for IoT. This is an ROI win for the customer, who will be able to deploy both Intel and Arm based devices at a lower cost and with less friction between IT and OT while at the same time retaining flexibility over their data and cloud partner choice until the deployment phase.” 

 -- Michela Menting, Director ABI Research.

Ecosystem Value

Intel® SDO will dramatically scale customer’s IoT deployments while increasing profitability for device manufacturers, distributors, installers, and IoT platform providers. By inherently distributing an embedded hardware security model with the device coupled with one-time software enabling tools, Intel® SDO creates a repeatable model that works with any IoT ecosystem. During deployment, highly skilled technicians can be replaced with installers that merely add power to the device for fast activation.
