SA innovator to introduce solutions at US IoT expo
January 2018, News
Award-winning South African Internet of Things company IoT.nxt will introduce the US tech market to its ground-breaking technology and solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things at the IoT Tech Expo North America on 29 November 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Centre, Silicon Valley.
“We are excited to bring our world-leading technology and platform solution to the US market,” says global director of partnerships Gareth Rees, team leader for the company’s participation at the expo. “Recent trips to the US have validated our cutting-edge approach and seamless edge device interoperability with the ability to retrofit to any existing equipment, coupled with powerful edge data processing and secure two-way messaging to the cloud.”
Rees will be joined by CTO Bertus Jacobs, Rudi du Toit, head of research and development for the field gateway device known as Raptor, and Michiel du Toit, head of the IoT.nxt platform development. Together they will present IoT.nxt’s software and hardware offering, which allows companies to implement IoT solutions without having to replace existing infrastructure, or implement completely new software. “We have pioneered an agile, application-agnostic platform that leverages the core principles of the IoT,” adds Rees. “We have bridged the challenges of Big Data and the end-to-end flow of this from edge to ERP,” adds Rees.
IoT.nxt’s participation at this global event was made possible after the company was crowned the overall winner at the 2017 MTN Business IoT Award event hosted in Sandton earlier this year. As part of the prize, the company was afforded the opportunity to present its technology at an international IoT event.
The North American Expo is part of the world’s largest IoT event series and runs with the 2017 Blockchain Expo and the 2017 AI Expo North America. Speakers include luminaries like Lionel Chocron, VP industry and IoT solutions at Oracle, Maciej Kranz, VP strategic innovation at Cisco, as well as experts from global giants like Shell, Toyota, Visa, Mastercard, ON Semiconductor and many others.
IoT.nxt opened its first international office in The Hague in The Netherlands in September and has its sights set on the US market. CEO, Nico Steyn and chairman, Wayne Fitzjohn recently visited several large companies in the region to explore possibilities, and they have reported that the feedback has been tremendous and confirms the value of the IoT.nxt offering.
