Devices which are not connected to the Internet can make use of this operating system as it is designed to run on products that were generally not connected to the world wide web. When it comes to size the latest LiteOS is just 10KB remarkably small compared to mobile operating systems present in the market today as other OS comes in sizable size.
In the technology industry the Internet Of Things has quickly become a household name as it one of hot topic today that clearly buzzed tech companies. Huawei’s latest effort to come up with LiteOS is to literally turned on offline products from being a dumb to smart products and it is currently in the works now as company is bundling Internet connectivity into their products from pushing updates to make communication possible with other products at the home.
DUMB TO SMART PRODUCTS
Through Internet connectivity formerly dumb products become smart products, say for example the Google’s Nest smart thermostat got some brains because of internet connectivity. Generally more and more offline products such as home refrigerators, washers, dryers, microwave ovens and other home appliances have been recently and increasingly connected to the internet and not just appliances, cars for instance, luggage bags are also becoming smart luggage bags which allows communication to the owner and will check in itself in the airport and there are more surprises stored as technology advances.
Earlier this year, Analyst firm Gartner said that the number of networked devices will soar to roughly 26 billion units by 2020, up from about 900 million in 2009. The Internet of Things market will see revenue exceed $3 trillion by 2020 said by another research firm which is the International Data Corporation.
More and more tech companies have been ramping towards the Internet Of Things aside from Apple and Google, Samsung also announced that they will produce processors which will power the newly smart devices not to mention Intel’s intention to produce processors to cater to the “delightful chaos” of Internet of Things and IBM purportedly invest $3 billion over four years to build out its own Internet of Things division.
Not like Samsung and Intel that wanted to be the foundation of future’s products by coming up with one of the most essential hardware, which is the chips, Huawei’s goal is to do business with the software that will literally make the hardware run, clearly the company aims to be the driver for connectivity through its operating system which is the LiteOS.
