NXP, Baidu to Secure IoT in China
NXP Semiconductors has forged a strategic partnership agreement with Baidu Cloud. The two companies will collaborate to promote industry innovation and support developers and ecosystem partners in building safe and smart IoT applications in China.
As part of the partnership, NXP will support Baidu's smart IoT platform, Tiangong, from cloud to IoT device security with its industry-leading Secure Element (SE) solution. With NXP SE embedded in each IoT device, Tiangong will secure edge node connections and protect data across a broad spectrum of markets including smart logistics, smart home, and smart cities. This optimized solution already has been implemented successfully in numerous applications, such as smart locks, intelligent gateways, blockchain, and radio frequency ID (RFID) logistics.
The two leaders will also collaborate on edge computing. NXP has already integrated Baidu Cloud's smart edge with its EdgeScale edge computing framework running on edge compute gateways to provide integrated solutions for management on the cloud and computing on the device and gateway.
Baidu has been at the forefront of innovation and development and collaborates with leading companies across multiple industries. Baidu chose to work with NXP for its broad end-to-end IoT solution portfolio, strong application insights, and NXP's ability to fully meet the demanding requirements of IoT on performance, security, and efficiency.
