  30. 30. IoT Architecture by Red Hat & Eurotech Conclusions, Summary • The concept of a Software-defined Gateway or Multi-Service Gateway is very powerful and an essential element in IoT solutions. The ability to program smart edge devices (including gateways) in a secure execution environment in Java/OSGi on abstracted hardware offers substantial benefits to companies that need their value proposition extended to the IoT edge. • Different from “traditional” M2M or telemetry like approaches the Software- Defined Gateway does require dynamically changing and updating of device software including the application life cycle management. Remote device and embedded application management is a significant part of the TCO of an IoT solution. The use of M2M/IoT Integration Platform capabilities is improving overall cost and time-to-market for IoT solutions significantly. • There is a magnificent and powerful IT world that the OT world with Software- Defined Edge nodes need to be seamlessly and securely integrated with.
