3Cinteractive (3C), a leading provider of mobile marketing services, and Wyless, the leading Internet of Things ( IoT ) global managed services provider today announced that Wyless will be using the 3C Switchblade Platform as the two-way messaging enablement technology for Wyless’ machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT solutions.
Many M2M/IoT applications must utilize “Short Message Service” (SMS) features to alert status and updates for customers. 3C technology enables this M2M/IoT message communication through functionality of its Switchblade SMS platform. It also offers custom-developed functionality that processes messages sent between devices using specialized code identified by carrier networks.
“As a leader in developing mobile solutions for many years, it is natural that 3C is now bringing our experience in specialized messaging to help drive today’s ‘Internet of Things,’” said Mike FitzGibbon, President of 3C. “As these devices and applications begin to impact our everyday lives, scale and reliability become as important as innovation, and we’re pleased to be chosen by Wyless to power their solutions.”
Michael Chase, EVP of Global Products at Wyless said:
“We are excited to be partnering with 3C in creating this Internet of Things messaging service.”
“Our partnership will provide Enterprise customers with a simple and secure path for their IoT devices and applications to send messages. Together we are reducing complexity and making it easier for our customers to get to market quickly.”
