Cloud-based service for BLE designs
18 July 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

Nordic Semiconductor has launched ‘nRF Connect for Cloud’, a free service for cloud-based evaluation, test and verification of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) designs employing Nordic’s nRF51 and nRF52 multiprotocol BLE Systems-on-Chip (SoCs).

nRF Connect for Cloud features an intuitive workflow and offers much of the functionality of Nordic’s ‘nRF Connect for Desktop’ and ‘nRF Connect for Mobile’ which are popular applications used for building and developing BLE products. nRF Connect for Cloud also supports an extensive range of standard Bluetooth services together with proprietary services such as nRF UART.

Operating with all popular browsers, nRF Connect for Cloud uses Web Bluetooth application programming interfaces (APIs) to push and extract data to and from the cloud, enabling the developer to test and modify the behaviour and performance of prototypes. By using the front-end and visualisation features of nRF Connect for Cloud, historical data can be extracted from databases and analysed in a browser. The product also allows engineers to monitor and interact with remote wireless Internet of Things (IoT) designs, enabling the collaboration of geographically separate development teams on a single project.

nRF Connect for Cloud is supported by the nRF Gateway app available for iOS and Android-powered mobile devices.

The app enables Nordic BLE devices to use a smartphone-enabled Internet gateway to convert BLE messages to ReST/MQTT/IP protocols for cloud interoperability.

The Gateway app communicates with the nRF Connect for Cloud back-end hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is based on software as a service (SaaS) components. By leveraging AWS industry-grade components, the app implements end-to-end data and device connectivity, guarantees reliability, and scales from a few to hundreds of BLE devices.

nRF Connect for Cloud currently supports BLE solutions but future versions will also support Nordic’s nRF91 low-power, global multimode LTE-M/NB-IoT system-in-package (SiP) for cellular IoT. nRF Connect for Cloud works out-of-the-box with the Nordic Thingy:52 IoT Sensor Kit, Nordic nRF5 development kit and software development kit (SDK) examples. A quick-start guide is available from www.nrfcloud.com
