London, UK: Arkessa, an MVNO Service Provider for Enterprise IoT has entered into a strategic alliance with Iotic Labs, who provide secure interoperability middleware for Smart Cities with a specific focus on Transport, Buildings and Facilities Management.
The partnership allows both companies to leverage their partner networks to accelerate and simplify the execution of smart city projects which are frequently impacted by the challenges of working with numerous technology providers, cross departmental boundaries, or conflicting business models.
IoT and Data Analytics are critical elements in Enterprise IoT and Smart City strategies but large-scale deployments have been slow to materialise. Systems integration and data-brokering are particularly fraught due to security concerns, integration issues or because Enterprises have not built a compelling business plan demonstrating technical and commercial scaling beyond the proof of concept stage.
Arkessa’s customer and partner network is a testament that businesses can flourish under service-oriented business models. OPEX-based or Ad-funded strategies enable global Enterprises and Cities to incrementally build IoT solutions into their infrastructure and services.
The groundbreaking secure interoperability middleware from Iotic Labs enables data integration to happen more easily at the Cloud or Enterprise level by creating an Internet-like environment for Things. This is Iotic Space where data can be anonymously shared or exchanged in a way that enables Enterprises to augment their own device data and databases with data from other Enterprises, or even from public crowd-sourced data.
