Arkessa and Eurotech combine IoT and M2M capabilities
September 3, 2015
Arkessa, a UK-based provider of global M2M and IoT managed services, has announced a partnership with Eurotech, a Italian provider of smart devices and M2M technologies enabling IoT applications.
The partnership will allow Eurotech to add managed connectivity services to its devices and M2M gateways courtesy of Arkessa’s multi-network cellular and satellite service covering all regions of the world.
"Eurotech shares our passion to make it easy for customers to deliver IoT solutions,” said Andrew Orrock, Arkessa CEO. “This landmark agreement allows both Eurotech and Arkessa to significantly extend our abilities and offer customers the most complete M2M and IoT solutions by combining and integrating core elements of our respective offerings.”
Arkessa’s connectivity products, which are agnostic to mobile networks, can be used across a range of Eurotech hardware offerings and complements Eurotech’s Reliacell, an IP67 ruggedised cellular adapter. This combination enables Eurotech to extend its differentiated end-to-end approach to include M2M global connectivity.
Equally Arkessa can leverage Eurotech's expertise in programmable IoT gateways and can take advantage of Eurotech’s products and technology in data, device and embedded application management.
The integration between Everyware Cloud, Eurotech’s data and device management platform, and Arkessa’s connectivity management platform gives users a single point of management of their connected assets, simplifying the implementation of IoT projects.
The areas in which this partnership will add the highest value have been identified as those which incorporate solid and secure device and data management alongside business-critical connectivity.
“This will enable our customers to further reduce the complexity of their M2M and IoT projects, increasing efficiency whilst satisfying both business targets and legislative requirements,” said Eurotech’s CMO, Robert Andres. “We are more and more becoming the one stop shop for industrial IoT solutions.”
Arkessa has offices in Bishop's Stortford, UK, and Bochum, Germany. It enables organisations of all sizes to monitor, manage and control remote devices through M2M and IoT technology to enable businesses to derive information and intelligence from new and existing IoT devices.
