Internet of Things (IoT) application platform provider PLAT.ONE has teamed up with SIGFOX to use its specialist IoT connectivity solution enabling it to provide enterprise grade IoT services around the world.
SIGFOX, headquartered in Labège, France, provides a global IoT network, which is already operating in several European countries and will begin deployment in the US this year. It is designed exclusively for two-way, small-message device communication. This eliminates the cost and energy-use barriers to wide adoption of the IoT and greatly extends the battery and service life of connected devices.
PLAT.ONE, based in Bogliasco, near Genoa in Italy, claims to be the first complete, end-to-end IoT application platform, offering distributed application enablement, data management and device management, all ‘cloud-ready’.
The combination of the SIGFOX network and PLAT.ONE’s full-stack features will enables the fast, secure and cost-effective implementation of Industrial IoT solutions.
The combination also allows rapid development and deployment of large scale and mission critical applications, such as smart metering, security, smart cities, health, environmental and agriculture monitoring, asset tracking, equipment management and infrastructure control.
“Many companies want to take advantage of the Internet of Things and SIGFOX is developing partnerships that help accelerate and simplify adoption,” said Stuart Lodge, SIGFOX executive vice president of global sales.
“Our collaboration with PLAT.ONE will simplify the adoption process, leveraging our SIGFOX ReadyTM programme to make it easy and convenient for companies to deliver business value enabled by our global network.”
“The SIGFOX REST API set provides a concise yet scalable service interface. It provides a normalized integration pattern, abstracting the complexities of the underlying connected devices. PLAT.ONE seamlessly integrates with SIGFOX to provide rich applications, data management and end-to-end security to the end-user through a highly scalable and proven technology,” said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE.
