Speedcast Debuts IoT Platform
Speedcast International has launched an Internet of Things (IoT) remote asset management platform deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for IoT customers, the company announced Wednesday. The platform services Speedcast IoT customers in sectors like energy, maritime, mining, and humanitarian.
Speedcast said this platform was designed to simplify connectivity, provisioning, and device management through a single console. Customers can choose from cellular, satellite, and low-power wireless connectivity options. Once devices are deployed, Speedcast IoT Center monitors the health and status of all the elements including the devices, communications network, IoT platform, and end user application.
“Speedcast currently manages over tens of thousands IoT devices on our network and the IoT Center will add further scale and depth to this growing part of the company’s product portfolio,” Jeffrey Irwin, vice president of Product Management at Speedcast said in the release. “The Speedcast IoT Center helps customers maximize scale and minimize per-device labor required for IoT and M2M [Machine-to-Machine] networks over the full product or project lifecycle.”
