To fuel growth, Qt offering for developers is enhanced with the Qt Cloud Messaging API – a push notification service by Kaltiot. Developers can focus on their own embedded solutions and take full advantage of the ready-to-use smart connectivity and communication service.

Embedded software was valued USD 10 billion in 2014 and is estimated to reach USD 18 billion by 2023. Innovation in technology is fuelling the industry demand. Industries such as hardware, automotive, healthcare and IoT are likely to drive market growth. The embedded systems market is expected to exceed USD 260 billion by 2023.

Push messaging is widely used in mobile and web development. For instance, social media services use it to send notifications to mobile phones. Before there has really been no providers of push messaging for industries like automation, automotive and robotics. The need for this functionality is increasing for embedded and IoT devices when more and more messages are pushed by backend service providers, cloud and other services.

To help accelerate the growth within the automotive, healthcare and IoT sectors, to name a few, Kaltiot is widening its developer support with the Qt Cloud Messaging API, which has been contributed to the Qt framework and is available in Qt for Device creation from Qt 5.9 and onwards.

Developers can now focus on their own embedded solutions and utilize the ready-to-use through the API. The service provides bi-directional, and always online, yet battery optimised communication. By using the Qt Cloud Messaging API, developers can easily create cross-platform applications with Qt and also take advantage of the Kaltiot solution for embedded, mobile and desktop development. The Kaltiot client SDK is designed for automated provisioning and works even in constrained low-end devices in poor wireless network conditions.

Team Kaltiot has developed secure (push) and scalable messaging between devices and services since 2008. The cloud service is trusted e.g. by Microsoft and their social media partners who transmit notifications to tens of millions of users around the world. Kaltiot Smart IoT is currently available e.g. for Linux32, Linux64, RasberryPi, Mac, Android and NodeJS.

Qt is the software development framework of choice by engineers in more than 70 industries worldwide for creating, building and deploying millions of connected embedded devices and applications. They chose Qt because it is intuitive & easy to use, cross-platform, supports a wide range of hardware and helps you reach your markets faster. When you develop with Qt, you create more, code less and deploy everywhere — and ahead of the rest. From your smart home, to the car you drive, and the devices you use at work, Qt is there.
