Number of Axeda Ready Certified Devices Continues to Rapidly Grow
FOXBORO, Mass. – July 25, 2013 – Axeda Corporation, the leading cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and implementing innovative machine-to-machine (M2M)and Internet of Things solutions, today announced new Axeda Ready devices from partner companies ClearConnex, Diamond, Echelon, eWON, GlobalSat, Netcomm Wireless, Option and Pointer Telocation. Over 30 devices have now completed Axeda Ready development, testing and certification, which ensures compatibility and ease of deployment with the Axeda Machine Cloud®.
By allowing more devices and services to quickly and easily integrate with the Axeda Machine Cloud, the Axeda Ready program extends the reach of the ‘Internet of Things’ and broadens options available to customers – allowing them to select the right communication device for their environment regardless of their global location. For device manufacturers, Axeda Ready provides a testing and implementation program that validates their connectivity via the Axeda agent protocol or their own device protocol. The program includes development and certification of Axeda Codecs (protocol translators) that leverage the Axeda AnyDevice Service to enable device makers to connect to Axeda using their own device protocol.
“Connecting the Internet of Things is far less complicated with the devices and services from our Axeda Ready partners who understand customers require a choice of connections as there is no one-single device that is the right fit for all smart fleets, smart homes, smart hospitals and smart cities,” said Bill Zujewski, CMO and executive vice president of product strategy at Axeda. “Based on their unique industry and network needs, customers rapidly connect their machines by deploying Axeda Ready devices, reducing time to market and development costs.”
