The IIoT agreement will allow Yorkland?s customers to have access to IoTium?s NaaS solution
California-based IoTium, a network infrastructure company for the industrial internet of things (IIoT), has expanded its presence in Canada through a strategic distribution alliance with Yorkland Controls, a provider of control systems and solutions.
Under this new agreement, Yorkland Controls will now offer the IoTium Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution as part of the firm?s portfolio of building automation systems (BAS) products. These solutions enable customers to remotely securely connect multiple commercial buildings with an array of sub-systems to the full range of applications that reside in public, private and hybrid clouds or datacenters.
The IoTium NaaS solution will enable Yorkland?s customers to gain insights into the performance of their buildings.
?The Canadian building automation market is eager to embrace the benefits of IIoT but has been slowed by concerns related to security and deployment complexities,? said Gerry Cellucci, vice president of Yorkland Controls. ?By adding the IoTium NaaS solution to our product portfolio, we?re enabling our customers and partners to overcome the barriers to IIoT adoption and securely deploy and manage a wide range of services for diverse building automation systems with the single click of a mouse.?
?This alliance with Yorkland Controls gives us a direct line to support their customer base in adopting next generation building automation technologies,? said Ron Victor, founder and CEO of IoTium.
The two companies said that the IoTium NaaS solution is immediately available to Yorkland Controls? customers and partners.
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, IoTium is backed by GE Ventures, March Capital, The Fabric and Juniper Networks. The company?s patented technology enables a network as a service (NaaS) solution to connect legacy onsite systems to cloud-based applications, allowing building and industrial automation, oil and gas, manufacturing, transportation, and smart city industries to take advantage of the Industry 4.0.
