BLACKHAWK, Calif., Jan. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless Glue Networks, Inc. announced today that it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an open membership group established to improve the integration between physical assets and the digital world in order to accelerate adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) for industrial applications.
Wireless Glue Networks' patented multi-protocol broker software snaps onto its partners' existing IoT solutions allowing its partners to extend their reach to monitor and control on-premise assets in real-time, regardless of which communication protocols are being used. Wireless Glue Networks' solution exists on the edge and is centered on protocol translation and data extraction. The solution feeds data into Wireless Glue Networks' partners' BI/Analytic engines including those focused on predictive maintenance and energy management. Wireless Glue Networks' technology is hardware agnostic and can be embedded inside most on-premise gateways/servers that are being used to communicate with assets.
"We believe the Industrial Internet of Things requires a transition from M2M siloed applications to cross-functional IoT platform solutions – which includes addressing the vast number of protocols being used by legacy industrial assets," said Matt Dowling, CTO of Wireless Glue Networks. "The IIC provides an ideal forum for collaboration among solution providers to enable this transition."
"Wireless Glue Networks is already employing Industrial Internet solutions with their technology that allows their customers to monitor and control on-premise assets in real time," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. "We are proud to welcome them as one of the newest members of the IIC and look forward to their contributions in Working Group activities."
