Afero hub enables innovation for Internet of Things

Internet of Things connector Afero has released the Afero Secure Hub, a standalone physical gateway that allows manufacturers to continuously monitor and control their smart devices, the company said.

Afero has selected Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), to ensure secure and reliable communication between the Afero Cloud and any device equipped with the Afero Secure Radio module.

Afero will leverage Qualcomm Atheros´ AR9344 Wi-Fi solution for residential and commercial IoT hub development. Combined with the Afero mobile app and embedded hardware, the Secure Hub offers another option for manufacturers and service providers to bring connectivity and security to smart devices by leveraging the Afero platform.

Created by mobile and hardware veterans from Google, Apple, Nest, Amazon, Twitter, and Netflix, Afero is a comprehensive and secure platform for cloud-connected devices in any industry.
