Vodafone has announced that it has selected Taoglas Edge, an industrial-grade hardware and firmware connectivity solution, for the Vodafone Business Invent application development platform. The platform allows for the creation of custom-built Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that serve industries such as agriculture, manufacturing, healthcare, energy and utilities, and transportation.
The integration will design, develop, pilot and deploy a range of bespoke IoT applications with a cost-effective short and long-range wireless hardware and firmware platform, complete with a variety of sensors.
Ability to create next-generation IoT solutions
Both companies claim that they have the ability to create next-generation IoT solutions that can scale massively, offer enterprise-class security and support comprehensive management across many different connected machines, systems, instruments, and appliances. Taoglas will be using embedded low power AI machine learning in the Edge to create intelligent solutions that can be battery powered and recognise and interact with the world around them.
“Successful adoption of IoT is all about enterprises using sophisticated intelligence from their IoT data to help them make more insightful decisions,” said Dermot O’Shea, co-CEO of Taoglas.
He added, “We have seen significant interest in IoT application development around industrial appliances, medical devices, smart grid, smart farming and animal health, asset tracking, predictive maintenance and more.”
“The recent introduction of our Invent platform, with the Taoglas Edge, will provide an end-to-end IoT solution for businesses of all sizes and will allow them to connect globally,” said Debbie Power, IoT Country Manager, Vodafone Ireland.
He further added, “This will help democratize the IoT landscape by giving businesses connectivity, device, app development, data insights, hosting and a fully managed service in one place.”
