TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Uhuru Corporation (“Uhuru”, Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President & CEO: Takashi Sonoda) has entered into an agreement with ARM Ltd. (“ARM”, Headquarters: Cambridge, England URL: https://www.arm.com/), the world’s leading semiconductor design company, as an enterprise licensee of the ARM® mbedTM Cloud. Through this agreement, Uhuru will be able to use mbed Cloud as a base to provide its own value-added services to its many clients who wish to securely and efficiently manage internet connected devices. As a technology company with professionals/technical staff with deep knowledge of IoT assets, specifications of cloud services, and the architecture of more than 17 billion ARM chips shipped annually*, Uhuru is evolving its business to support cultivating and edifying the developer community, developing new partner activities and going forward, creating a new service business centered on implementing and promulgating mbed Cloud.
* 17.6 billion ARM-based chips shipped in FY2016, according to Softbank’s Annual Report released March 2017 (Japanese): (http://cdn.softbank.jp/corp/set/data/irinfo/presentations/results/pdf/2017/softbank_presentation_2017_004.pdf)
A new system for the IoT age has been gaining attention – known as “edge computing”, it is the method where the edge devices themselves are controlled, rather than all data they collect being uploaded and processed in the cloud. Through the spread of mbed Cloud, Uhuru aims to bring to reality a new distributive, collaborative, autonomous model of continuously evolving things and services by merely updating software on the edge devices without changing hardware. Uhuru will work with ARM applying mbed Cloud in the following initiatives:
1. Expanding Uhuru’s own service to promote adoption of mbed Cloud with manufacturers and system integrators
enebular® is Uhuru’s IoT orchestration service, a data linking platform to connect various devices and cloud services, which has been adopted for use at various IoT sites. Starting with this license agreement with ARM, Uhuru will launch its automated deployment/configuration/management system necessary for collaborative distributed processing between edge and cloud running on enebular in cooperation with ARM to respond to demands and potential needs from manufacturers and system integrators at IoT implementation and operation sites. Uhuru expects to announce plans in summer 2017 based on alliance partners’ needs.
2. Cultivating the mbed Cloud Developer Community
Uhuru plans to continue to aggressively(actively) contribute to expanding the mbed Cloud developer community. Uhuru is moving forward with plans to involve municipalities/regional governments and others from the user side in IoT Hackathons, work toward expanding use cases connecting IoT and edge devices, and cooperate with ARM to increase the number of mbed Cloud and IoT engineers. As an example, mbed devices are planned to be the basis for the “Ina LoRaWAN Hackathon” sponsored by Ina-AI NET in Ina-city (the birthplace of ADSL), Nagano Prefecture.

(event will be held from June 24-25, 2017 and further plans are being
laid for then end of August and the end of October, 2017).
