Partners Deliver New Plug and Play Devices as Part of the Axeda Ready Program
Barcelona, SPAIN – February 24, 2014 – Axeda Corporation, the leading cloud-based service and software for connecting, building and managing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced new Axeda Ready devices from partner companies Atrack, CalAmp, Freescale® Semiconductor, Huawei, Inventek Systems, Moog Crossbow, Multi-Tech and u-blox. More than 50 devices from 27 manufacturers 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.
“Partners and customers continue to leverage Axeda to drive their Internet of Things initiatives,” said Bill Zujewski, Axeda CMO. “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. The result is that thousands of customers, no matter what connectivity method they prefer, have easy access to the Internet of Things.”
