Internet of Things (IoT) application platform PLAT.ONE is partnering with Nwave, a low-power, wide-area (LPWA) wireless network solutions provider, to bring a suite of ready-to-use industrial solutions to market, starting with a parking solution.
Nwave’s LPWA wireless communication platform and devices are optimised for low data intensive IoT applications. Unlike GSM, CDMA or ZigBee technologies, Nwave’s technology is based on an ultra narrow band radio protocol targeted at large scale, high-density, low-maintenance networks of sensors and devices.
Combining Nwave’s communication technology with tailored applications built on PLAT.ONE’s enterprise-grade application platform enables rapid, secure and cost-effective deployments of large-scale IoT solutions for energy, city services, environmental monitoring, healthcare, agriculture, as well as other industries.
The joint parking solution will combine Nwave’s Sparkit Smart Parking Solution with ready-to-use parking management and reporting screens that can be deployed on-premises or in a cloud to provide a low-cost, quick deployment solution. The Sparkit solution is perfectly suited for PLAT.ONE’s platform including the CITY.ONE vertical solution, the two companies asserted.
“Our focus at Nwave has been on time to value, enabling customers to rapidly deploy private LPWA solutions in days not months,” said Jonathan Wiggin, CEO of Nwave. “PLAT.ONE’s rapid application platform allows us to offer those same customers a complete parking management application with an uncompromising approach to security and scalability.”
“We are excited to add Nwave to our rapidly growing eco-system of PLAT.ONE-Ready partners. Nwave’s unique private LPWA solutions are a perfect complement to PLAT.ONE’s enterprise-grade rapid application platform providing an open-standards-based set of solutions with proven technology and unmatched scalability,” said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE.
The UK and US-based NWave Technologies is a vendor of IoT solutions and connectivity technology. On 20 October 2014, NWave announced that it had joined the Weightless SIG in order to contribute to the rapid evolution of the recently announced Weightless-N specification. Weightless-N is the new and unique open connectivity standard for IoT/M2M over ISM bands.
PLAT.ONE is an end-to-end IoT and M2M application platform providing application enablement, data management and device management, all “cloud-ready” with offices in the USA and Italy.
