LONDON, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the cloud-enabled machine to machine (M2M) platform for Internet of Industrial Things (IoIT) applications market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Eurotech with the 2015 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership. Leveraging more than 20 years of experience, Eurotech has built a best-in-class M2M platform that aids the interconnection of embedded devices and offers a broad spectrum of solutions. All of Eurotech's M2M solutions integrate hardware, software, and services, eventually delivering optimum return on investment (ROI).
Eurotech boasts an extensive product portfolio comprising single-board computers (SBC), data communications, input/output (I/O) cards, rugged mobile computers, and Internet protocol (IP) networking equipment. However, the segment that stands out is its M2M and IoT software and services.
In 2015, Eurotech commercially released its Everyware Cloud™ 3.5 (EC 3.5), a comprehensive M2M/IoT integration platform. The (EC 3.5) simplifies data management by seamlessly interconnecting distributed smart objects in a secure manner, and transferring valuable data sets between machines, not just within machines.
"The EC™ assists end users with the proper connection, configuration, and management of devices throughout the entire product life cycle until the product wears out," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Guru Mahesh. "Its benefits of shorter time to market and pay-as-you-go model are proving highly cost-effective; more importantly, it is flexible enough to be deployed right from the public cloud to a cloud in a box."
With the ideal mix of hardware, firmware, operating systems, programming frameworks, and external infrastructure, all of Eurotech's solutions are highly scalable and cost effective. For instance, its Everyware Software Framework (ESF) is a programming environment that wraps the complexity of low-level device management with high-level constructs, enabling simpler and faster programming.
Being an integrated and highly scalable infrastructure, the EC allows Eurotech devices to send and receive data from the end application, where pre-made or user-designed components consume it. It is also possible to alter the size of the infrastructure, which may vary from just a few test samples to even tens of thousands of samples.
In addition to developing sturdy products, Eurotech places considerable emphasis on customer service. Eurotech believes that it is critical for companies specialising in interconnecting smart devices to provide assistance throughout the product life cycle.
"Eurotech is extremely keen to foster brand recognition by employing direct as well as indirect sales channels," noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Guru Mahesh. "Establishing strong partnerships with resellers and intermediaries will further enhance the identity of the company in the global arena."
Eurotech facilitates human-machine interaction alongside M2M interaction, accelerating the emergence of a cloud that is in line with the vision of a Smart Factory. Eurotech's core competency of advanced computing and communication technology and its successful incorporation of innovative products truly offers unmatched excellence to the customers, paving the way for digital technology evolution.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognises the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands, the overall impact it has in terms of customer value as well as increased market share.

Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
