The Intel® IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending

Intel today announced the Intel® IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending, the first industry-specific gateway from Intel. The integrated, pre-validated and flexible design was built using the Intel® IoT Platform and includes hardware, software and security building blocks to speed up the development and deployment of smart vending machines. The gateway enables the consolidation of multiple compute workloads into a single PC-based platform, freeing up time for vending manufacturers and operators to focus on innovation.

Intel announced today the availability of the Intel® SSD DC S3510 Series to meet the demands for high-performance, high- capacity data stores in the data center. The DC S3510 Series expands the Intel SSD Data Center Family – the #1 chosen SATA SSD product line according to Forward Insight - and offers cost and power advantages over hard disk drives while delivering proven performance and reliability. It is well-suited for read-intensive or virtualized applications in a cloud or data center environment, such as web servers, operational databases and analytics. Intel and VMware developed the industry’s first 32-node all-flash Virtual SAN with NVM Express technology to show how enterprise customers can cost effectively deploy this technology. Read more about the Intel SSD Data Center Family and the Virtual SAN demonstration.

At CoreOS Fest today, Intel’s Nicholas Weaver shared how Intel is working with CoreOS to scale and accelerate adoption of its Tectonic suite – a solution for enterprises and cloud service providers transitioning to distributed, container-based software infrastructure. Intel supports the hyperscale and highly orchestrated container movement, and believes it will help democratize cloud computing by making it easier to operate with the agility and efficiency previously only used by a few highly advanced cloud service providers. At the event, Intel also demonstrated how the combination of the CoreOS portfolio and Kubernetes, running on a Supermicro system, is anticipated to have a big impact on mainstream businesses.

The Intel® IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 4, 2015 – The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a powerful driver of business transformation. The Internet of Things will include 50 billion units installed by 2020, according to IDC. This surge in connectivity is making an impact across industries, including vending where global shipments of intelligent vending machines are forecasted to reach around 2 million units by 2016, with both new and retrofit markets combined1.

 

However, there are significant costs and complexities associated with retrofitting the large amount of existing equipment that is not currently connected, managed or secure. To address this interoperability issue, Intel Corporation today announced the Intel IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending. The gateway is built using the Intel® IoT Platform.

 

Building on previous Intel® reference designs, the Intel IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending integrates pre-validated building blocks that facilitate the integration of multiple compute workloads. Examples include vending machine controller, touch screen, telemetry, digital advertising, payment and transaction management, as well as simplification of integration with back office applications. Adopting proven compute models enables vending machine manufacturers and vending operators to focus on innovation, reduce development time and investment risk while differentiating themselves by moving to a powerful PC-based platform.

 

"By consolidating multiple workloads onto a single vending platform, manufacturers can free up time to focus on meeting the increasing expectations of today's tech-savvy consumers," said Jose Avalos, worldwide director of visual retail at Intel. "For example, customers can integrate new natural user interfaces, social media capabilities, loyalty programs and nutritional information – all of which will have a positive impact on the consumer's vending experience."

 

The Intel IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending is based on the Intel® Atom™ processor E3815 system-on-chip (SoC) and includes the Intel® IoT Gateway software stack. The compute board is based on the Intel® Reference Design for Digital Signage, which vending machine manufacturers can make or buy. The gateway solution also includes a vending machine I/O board and a vending machine API, both outlined in the Intel® Reference Design for Intelligent Vending.

 

In support of the Intel® Reference Design for Intelligent Vending, N&W Global Vending* will be at the Intel booth at the VendItalia 2015 International Vending Exhibition in Milan (Pav. 18 stand B36 C37) May 3-6, offering a sneak preview of the first prototype of a vending machine based on the latest Intel technologies. The companies collaborated to create the innovative solution, concentrating their efforts and the best technologies to meet the needs of the market, improving the user experience and the management of vending machines.

 

Intel-based solutions for vending are also available from Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance members including Advantech*, Gigabyte* and Jabil*.
