PLAT.ONE, the first Enterprise-Grade Internet of Things (IoT) application platform, today announced a partnership with SIGFOX, a pioneer in cost-effective, energy-efficient IoT connectivity.
The SIGFOX global IoT network, which is operating in several European countries and will begin deployment in the U.S. this year, 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 is 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 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 program 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”, said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE.
“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.”
