Cassia Networks is rolling out a new set of Internet of Things products for enterprise applications.
Among them are enterprise-level Bluetooth routers, and IoT access controller and a software development kit (SDK). The Silicon Valley-based company expects the new products will help speed up the development and adoption of IoT in the enterprise.
The new routers are optimized for indoor settings and can be mounted on a wall or ceiling, or placed on a desk or counter. One -- the X1000 -- also is considered optimal for outdoor environments. The new IoT access controller comes with advanced features such as security policy management, Bluetooth "locationing", seamless Bluetooth roaming and dynamic load balancing. Developers and manufacturers can incorporate the new Cassia SDK into their native apps or server software for seamless integration with Cassia routers and AC.
Cassia says this slate of products offers seamless Bluetooth coverage that makes IoT deployments cost-effective; easy deployment and management of hundreds of routers and thousands of devices through a centralized access-controller (AC) interface; the ability to precisely track people and assets; enhanced end-to-end security; and lower barrier of entry and improved return on investment (ROI).
Felix Zhao, founder and CEO of Cassia Networks, says the new product lineup improves the functionality of Bluetooth -- a move he hopes will be a step toward overcoming the lack of standardization and interoperability across platforms that holds IoT adoption back.
"The ability of the enterprise to easily use IoT environments in business operations is imperative to the success of the IoT market as a whole," said Zhao. "Despite the headway made on the consumer side of the market, enterprises have been unable to truly reap the benefits of a connected enterprise without great implementation costs."
Cassia Networks, which was founded in 2014, might be best known for developing the first Bluetooth router.
2017 has seen the size, scope and awareness of the internet of things continue to grow at considerable pace.
And while corporate latecomers hastily stitching together their first attempts at an IoT strategy, the market leaders are already planning for IoT's next step — where artificial intelligence and data analytics meet to provide a new frontier of insights and opportunities.
Our panel of experts, selected from the Internet of Things World 2017 speaker line-up, will share their views on how enterprises and industries will be leveraging the next generation of IoT capabilities — spanning machine learning, predictive analytics and more — and what the outcomes will be.
The expertise of our speakers spans both the private and public sector, and the implications of IoT, analytics and AI for both enterprise and government will be covered.
