IoT platforms shine in ACOMM awards

Published: September 3rd, 2018

Australian IoT platforms scored two of the 12 ACOMM awards handed out at Communications Alliance’s annual dinner, and Sigfox network operator Thinxtra won the ‘Best Marketing Initiative’ award.

LoRaWAN network operator National Narrowband Network Company (NNNCo) was a joint winner of the ‘Innovation SME’ award for its IoT platform (the other winner was Coevolve for its integrated SD-WAN service) and Reekoh won the ‘IoT Startup’ award for its IoT platform.

NNNCo N2N platform: any data, any device

NNNCo says its N2N platform is an open, multi-tenant, converged cloud or server-based platform that decodes, decrypts and delivers data from all types of connected devices.

“It seamlessly solves the data to knowledge journey by ingesting any data from any device or data source from any network and converting it into a common format and structure,” it says.

“The N2N is access technology agnostic and easily integrates into any customer system or visualisation platform such as Microsoft Azure, Reekoh, Cisco Kinetic and Alibaba Cloud.

In February 2017 IoTAustralia reported NNNCo announcing a partnership with Actility, which had developed an IoT platform specific for LoRaWAN, ThingPark, that it claimed underpinned more than half the national LPWA network rollouts globally.

It was described it as a data analytics and control framework which exposes data from connected things to applications [that] connects with cloud platforms, and also offers off the shelf IoT industrial applications.”

Reekoh offers platform-as-a-service
Comms Alliance said Reekoh had been chosen for “developing and commercialising an original IoT data and API management platform-as-a-service and suite of tools aimed at solving the growing problem of complexity with integrating IoT solutions and enterprise systems and services.”
