Johannesburg, 8 November 2017
Award-winning South African Internet of things company IoT.nxt will introduce the USA tech market to its ground-breaking technology and solutions for the industrial Internet of things at the IoT Tech Expo North America, to be presented from 29 November 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Centre, Silicon Valley.
“We are excited to attend the event to bring our world-leading technology and platform solution to the US market. Recent trips to the US have validated our cutting-edge approach to our seamless edge device interoperability and ability to retrofit onto any existing equipment, coupled with powerful edge data processing and secure two-way messaging to the cloud,” says Gareth Rees, Director of Partnerships: Global at IoT.nxt and team leader for the company’s participation at the expo.
Rees will be joined by Bertus Jacobs, CTO; Rudi du Toit, head of research and development for the IoT.nxt field gateway device known as Raptor; and Michiel du Toit, head of the IoT.nxt platform to present IoT.nxt’s software and hardware offering that 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 off the core principles of the Internet of things. We have bridged the challenges of big data and the end-to-end data flow of this data from edge to ERP,” Rees says.
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 prizes awarded, IoT.nxt 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, Vice President Industry and IOT solutions at Oracle; Maciej Kranz, Vice-President Strategic Innovation at Cisco; as well as experts from global giants like Shell, Toyota, Visa, Mastercard, ON Semiconductor and many more.
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, visited several large companies in the US to explore possibilities, and they have reported that the feedback has been tremendous and validates the value of IoT.nxt’s offering.
