Advantech Teams Up on Transport IoT
Leading provider of IoT solutions Advantech has partnered with UK M2M managed services provider Arkessa to improve services for IoT customers within transport and other sectors.
Enhancements in IOT products for transport, retail, energy, industrial and enterprise markets are enabled through the deal, which will also eases roll-out of international products and services.
Arkessa provides managed IoT connectivity services that simplify access to global wireless networks.
It is hoped this will allow more enterprises to control and manage this aspect of their solutions independently from telecommunications and internet sectors, which can present challenges and complexities.
Cloud-based business applications are being increasingly adopted by enterprises and this means fast, reliable and secure connectivity is a top business priority, Advantech said.
Arkessa’s managed services include multi-network cellular with global roaming, international data plans and resilient mobile broadband solutions.
It aims to future-proof connectivity choices by aggregating multiple global mobile networks and technologies into a single service, whether cellular or satellite, and uses emerging low power wide-area (LPWAN) radio technologies.
Tineke Bergen, IIOT Marketing Manager Europe at Advantech Europe, said: “Our larger customers, especially in the Enterprise segment, seek premium connectivity services to be competitive in their markets.
“With this partnership with Arkessa we deliver a one stop shop for IoT meeting market requirements and providing best-in-class customer service”.
