French company Kerlink’s Wanesy management centre has been integrated with the IoT platform from North Carolina-based Tago IO.
Tago IO’s end-to-end cloud platform requires little effort for IoT network setup and operation. Under the company’s PaaS model, Tago IO provides all the critical IoT network functionalities, such as device management, data storage, real-time data visualisation, user management, custom analytics and notifications.
The platform goes beyond typical IoT technologies to transform the way businesses create value from connected products and user interactions. In a single tool, it connects businesses, developers and users, and, unlike dashboards, the platform uses a database of devices with a preformatted payload set-up that allows an integration in a dashboard.
“Through this new integration, developers are now able to easily build IoT applications for a wide range of verticals, including asset tracking, cold chain management, smart cities, smart agriculture, predictive maintenance and others,” said Fabio Rosa, CEO and founder of Tago IO. “This has only been made possible by the hundreds of different LoRaWan sensor models, such as temperature, pressure, location, gas, light, humidity, energy and level sensors, certified to run on Tago IO and to communicate with the open interface on the Kerlink LoRa network server.”
A dedicated application programme interface (API) geared to Kerlink’s requirements has been created to link IoT network data securely between Wanesy and Tago IO’s platform. As developers perform the setup, data from network sensors can be used to build dashboards, reports, notifications and integration with other systems.
“Integrating Wanesy management centre in Tago IO’s innovative end-to-end cloud platform proves the robustness and reliability of Kerlink’s software services,” said Carlos Briceño, vice president of Kerlink in the Americas. “This platform opens the door to another way for developers to think about IoT applications development, making it faster and easier.”
Kerlink provides connectivity for designing, launching and operating public and private IoT networks. Its portfolio includes industrial-grade network equipment, network core, operations and management software, value-added applications and professional services, backed by R&D capabilities.
More than 120,000 Kerlink installations have been rolled out with more than 330 clients in 69 countries. Based in France, with subsidiaries in the USA, Singapore, India and Japan, Kerlink is a founding and board member of the LoRa Alliance.
Tago IO offers an end-to-end cloud platform that transforms the way businesses create value from connected products and user interactions. The company is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
