SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ioTium, the first commercially deployed Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced an alliance with Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT). With the availability of the Telit deviceWISE gateway technology on the ioTium Edge App Store for single-click deployment, the innovative leaders jointly solve IIoT deployment complexities and management challenges faced by industrial enterprises operating in Industry 4.0.
With an eye cast toward digital transformation, industrial enterprises are making an effort to streamline processes and gain greater insight into their devices — controllers, PLCs, drives, process control networks and so on. However, connecting these distributed assets to more modern applications is expensive and complex, as there exists no real standard or secure means to drive it.
The tighter integration and partnership between ioTium and Telit solve this challenge. Telit offers a comprehensive portfolio of IoT and mobile broadband modules, device connectivity plugins and industrial IoT edge software. Combined with ioTium’s cloud-managed and software-defined converged infrastructure, industrial enterprises can securely connect industrial assets to any cloud, application or IoT platform in minutes. Enabling enterprises insight with real-time data, reduced deployment and runtime management complexity, ultimately driving digital transformation.
“With the cooperation of Telit, customers can now rapidly connect different communications protocols like BACnet, OPC, Modbus or even proprietary custom protocols to various IoT cloud offerings such as Azure IoT, Siemens MindSphere or private cloud end points,” said Sri Rajagopal, CTO, ioTium. “All commissioning, data mapping and contextualization can now be done remotely, dramatically reducing the time and cost of flying technicians and data scientists to the site to remediate in person.”
“Our alliance with ioTium establishes a best-in-class approach for digital connectivity in the industrial world,” said Fred Yentz, president Strategic Partnerships, Telit. “Together, we are providing industrial enterprise customers a secure, plug-and-play way to connect any machine to cloud-based applications to capitalize on the benefits of Industry 4.0.”
“ioTium is committed to only working with world-class providers to solve the most pressing challenges faced by the industrial world,” said Ron Victor, founder and CEO, ioTium. “Our partnership with Telit yields a solution that brings digital transformation within reach for today’s industrial enterprises.”
