PLAT.ONE and Wi-NEXT Join the Fog Computing Conference as Gold Sponsor

Norwalk, CT – October 28, 2014 – TMC and Crossfire Media announced that PLAT.ONE and Wi-NEXT have signed on as Gold Sponsors of Fog Computing Conference, held November 19-20, 2014, at the San Jose Marriott in San Jose, California. The event will explore the platforms, applications, implementation strategies and new technologies that are evolving from Fog Computing.
From its release in 2011, PLAT.ONE has delivered a full-stack, Enterprise-Grade and cloud-ready software platform for developing and deploying mission-critical Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. “PLAT.ONE is excited to be part of the Fog Computing event. We were the first Enterprise-Grade IoT application platform, and an early leader in the distributed computing concept we now call ‘Fog Computing’. We have strengthened that lead by working closely with Cisco and taking an active thought-leadership role in industry forums like this” said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE.

Wi-Next® provides the first Industrial Edgeware Wireless Platform to power Fog Computing. Their patented WiseMesh™ is a Network Operating System combining Wi-Fi and Low Power Wi-Fi communications with distributed processing for the Internet Of Things and Fog Computing applications, aggregating, distributing and virtualizing the underlying computing power, resources, sensors and protocols. “Our Wi-Next Industrial Edgeware product line combines self-configuring, resilient communications with distributed edge processing and storage making our hardware and software the perfect edge platform for Industrial IoT and Fog Computing. We couldn’t think of a better event to launch this into the U.S.” said Nicola De Carne, CEO of Wi-NEXT.
“Fog Computing addresses the problems the enterprise faces in using the cloud while ensuring compliance and redundancy. PLAT.ONE and Wi-Next deliver solutions that help keep the enterprise in control,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, the Fog Computing Conference. “We are delighted to have them present and participate at the Fog Computing Conference.”
The Fog Computing Conference is also presented by Diamond Sponsor Cisco and sponsor Opengear.

PLAT.ONE and Paradox Engineering together to offer highly innovative solution for M2M and IoT applications

PLAT.ONE, the First Enterprise-Grade IoT Application Platform, demonstrates its ‘Edgeware’ at the Cisco IoT World Forum

PLAT.ONE, an ABO DATA company, demonstrated its Enterprise-Grade IoT ‘Edgeware’ technology as part of the Cisco IoT World Forum today, and committed to support the newly announced ‘IoT World Forum Reference Model’.
From its first release in 2011, PLAT.ONE, the first enterprise-grade IoT application platform, has featured a distributed, edge agent architecture that provides high scalability and security for mission-critical applications. “After 30 years of developing enterprise and industrial applications, we integrated the best of our technology into a true, enterprise-grade M2M and IoT platform”, said Filippo Murroni, the CEO of PLAT.ONE, “having a distributed agent technology is a minimum requirement for enterprise-grade IoT applications; distributing data and security processing to the edge while maintaining end to end security, data traceability and scalability.”
PLAT.ONE was invited by Cisco to submit their ‘Edgeware’ agent technology to support the development of the ‘IoT World Forum Reference Model’. PLAT.ONE is one of ten companies including IBM and Intel that have committed to develop, prototype and test this reference model going forward. Flavio Bonomi, the former Head of the Advanced Architecture and Research Organization at Cisco Systems, and an advisor to PLAT.ONE said, “This reference model is a significant step forward to move toward a true Fog Computing architecture, providing the framework for edge-based analytics, autonomous control and distributed computing. PLAT.ONE is one of the earliest and best examples of such distributed IoT platforms in action.”
PLAT.ONE is already in use by three major telecoms and over 25 industrial customers powering over 200,000 connected industrial devices. “They are one of the real success stories in the M2M and IoT space, with significant deployments in demanding applications and mission-critical environments” said Ken Forster, acting COO of PLAT.ONE; “Cisco is a great technical and commercial partner to accelerate the Internet of Everything, and PLAT.ONE.”
