IoT has changed. It is no more confined to wearables and personal appliances and drives some of the most complicated processes in the industries. In the wake of the pandemic when social distancing became a norm, IoT filled the gaps and ensured continuous processing while eliminating dependency upon manual contact. Going forward, 2022 will welcome IoT with more acceptance and interesting work.
The beauty of the IoT industry is the start-up participation from all over the world. Not to miss, this participation comes from a diverse range of sectors such as healthcare, BFSI, automobile, manufacturing (IIoT) and others.
As the industry inches closer to the end of Q4, we decided to list 3 of the most promising IoT start-ups that could set the narrative for 2022 and beyond.
Pain Point Solved: Integrated IoT Solutions for Business & IoT Management Platform
Over the years, consumers have matured from operating coffee machines through mobile phones to driving complex industrial operations (IIoT). The internet of devices is expanding and there’s a swaddle of services and applications out there. To cut through the competition, Cubica IoT handpicked a rare gap in the existing services and launched its ready-to-deploy IoT solutions for businesses. That’s right! Cubica IoT offers integrated IoT deployment for multiple use cases such as office/workspace automation, warehouse IoT, retail IoT and other smart building solutions.
For example, Cubica’s IoT solutions create an IoT ecosystem of devices for an office without having to configure multiple SaaS applications. The customer can also handpick the devices and applications they want to include or exclude from the stack. Cubica’s IoT solutions come with integrated support for hardware, firmware and software applications and make it easier for assembling and installing IoT solutions in a variety of environments.
These intelligent IoT solutions work in parallel with Cubica’s IoT management platform called PropSight™ PropSight provides integrated management of multiple smart sensing devices and systems across multiple properties from a single dashboard — whether commercial, industrial, or retail . The energy monitoring solution is one of many IoT solutions that run on PropSight. It is the single point of action to perform 360-degree management of all energy-consuming equipment within a facility ecosystem.
The centralized dashboard provides power and energy consumption data insights for one or multiple floors, buildings and even campuses spread over different regions. This helps admin departments to keep a sharp eye on consumption metrics of properties and ultimately do an A/B analysis of the savings from energy-efficient devices.
Pain Point Solved: Lack of dedicated marketplace for IoT resources.
Given the meteoric rise of IoT in recent years, it became complicated for businesses to find skilled human resources and partners to actualize the build. As we all know, IoT is a heterogeneous combination of hardware, software, and firmware and production competencies, creating even a small product that has challenges. Among many, unavailability of resources is one of them. So be it hardware lack of hardware components, absence of regulatory compliance assistance or simply unskilled software engineers, it’s a tough trek. Ioterra came up with a simple yet impactful solution for the same.
Founded by a team of IoT professionals, the marketplace provides a one-stop portal for finding all types of resources. Through multiple search help options, businesses can filter and browse through comprehensive listings in their respective area or for a specific type of job requirement. At the same time, for professionals and vendors, the platform is a goldmine to generate work/business opportunities without much effort.
The platform hosts a long list of professionals such as business consultants, product designers, legal consultants, hardware & software engineers, networking professionals and contract manufacturing partners.
Paint Point Solved: IoT Device Connectivity over a Cellular Network
Devices are adding to the internet faster than the improvements in internet bandwidths. And that’s why we need cellular connectivity to accommodate the expansion. Floliv provides a software infrastructure that drives uninterrupted connectivity for devices (and hence the IoT network they are connected to) regardless of the geography or time zone differences. The cloud platform provides comprehensive connectivity management & device management solutions. The core network enables a flexible deployment module that further assures quicker time to market.
floLIVE is solving one of the major pain points of the industry – interrupted connectivity for IoT networks spread across geographies. So, companies after signing up on the Floliv platform can seamlessly create an IoT network and add/remove devices as required.
floLIVE works on a Cloud-Managed Mobile Private Network (LTE/5G) for an ultra-secure and low-latency networking experience. Moreover, the Global IoT Network as-a-service (LTE/5G) uses the User and Control Plane separation technology that assures utmost flexibility over a globally distributed local packet gateway array. This one works perfectly with narrowband and battery-operated device-to-cloud applications.
In a short time from its launch, Floliv has built an impressive portfolio of customers including Dell, and Qualcomm.
So far, we discussed IoT start-ups addressing key issues of the industry such as integrated operations, marketplaces and global connectivity. The 3 companies are gaining widespread acclaim for their contribution to the industry. However, that is not the end. IoT is growing and adding more interesting companies to the industry every day. Needless to say, we are hopeful about new names and a longer list by the end of Q4 2022.
