Introducing Liota

Liota is a vendor-neutral, open source SDK for building IoT gateway applications to monitor and orchestrate data from the device to the cloud. Liota simplifies interaction between any device and any data-center component, through any gateway and over any transport protocol.

Why Liota?

  • Simplify IoT gateway application development in an easy to use environment
  • Gain new insights through collection, analysis, storage and sharing of sensor data
  • Save time by focusing on app innovation instead of creating different versions of the same app for different gateways
