Connectivity and IoT specialists join forces

Network edge data connectivity specialist B+B SmartWorx, a division of Advantech, has announced a partnership with Reekoh to boost its IoT-focused integration and interoperability capabilities.

The partnership aims to reduce fragmentation in the IoT ecosystem, assisting organisations to realise the potential of utilising asset/machine data gained from extant assets at the network edge.

A 2015 McKinsey Global Institute report found that harnessing data in extant industrial assets is expected to contribute up to 85% of the value in Industrial IoT applications. The report further identified up to US$930 billion in business value to be realised from asset data in remote and/or industrial applications.

The partnership will increase the ability of both B+B SmartWorx’s Advantech Wzzard and Reekoh customers and prospects to remotely connect and monitor any legacy and new sensor infrastructure, and simply integrate the sensor-acquired data into their cloud and corporate applications through the Reekoh platform.

Not only do the organisations get connectivity performance and security through Advantech’s Wzzard platform, they now have the opportunity to quickly and efficiently integrate their IoT data to the applications and processes they use to run their business.

“By partnering with Reekoh, we reaffirm our commitment to helping customers with increased interoperability and reduced complexity,” said David Brigdale, B+B SmartWorx ANZ channel manager.

“Our aim is to make it easier for clients to benefit from edge-of-the-network asset data they may not have had access to prior. Both organisations are about ease of interoperability, so the partnership makes great sense.”

“Our open integration capabilities and modular framework mean that we’re able to work with partners such as B+B SmartWorx to very quickly add further value to their already-impressive offerings,” added Reekoh CEO and co-founder Dale Rankine.

“Customers are looking for a more agnostic approach to working with their IoT data, and so bringing in a platform like Reekoh gives them this assurance.”
