- 2lemetry's cloud-based platform serves as middleware for large networks of Web-connected embedded devices - the proverbial Internet of Things (IoT). It translates the various protocols used by connected devices, sets messaging rules, and analyzes the data traffic it handles to derive insights.
- The startup boasts its solution can work with any protocol or hardware platform, automatically add new devices as they join a network, and scale to millions of devices without hurting performance. Honeywell is among the company's enterprise clients.
- Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has bought 2lemetry for an undisclosed sum, and says it will continue supporting the company's clients. 2lemetry's services appear to complement AWS' Kinesis service, which provides real-time processing for massive data streams, including for data produced by IoT devices and sensors.
- TechCrunch notes 2lemetry's Incoming service might particularly interest Amazon - it helps companies (such as retailers) interact with customers using data obtained via proximity beacons, geofencing, facial recognition, and other sources.
- Though better known for their machine-to-machine (M2M) communications hardware, Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) and CalAmp (NASDAQ:CAMP) are two companies that have been going after the budding IoT service market. Sierra recently bought M2M connectivity/messaging service provider Wireless Maingate, and CalAmp has launched its Connect service platform for deploying and managing M2M devices.
