M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC (M2M SN) and B+B SmartWorx (B+B) announced today a broad partnership that enhances M2M Spectrum Network’s position in the rollout of its dedicated machine-to-machine network across the US. The new partnership is expected to spark innovation in its continued development of mission-critical network connectivity technology for remote or demanding environments, embedding intelligence throughout the network, starting at the network edge.
The partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the two leading companies’ respective strengths, across two major areas:
First, M2M SN and B+B have forged an OEM and reseller relationship in which B+B will provide M2M SN with industry-leading IoT industrial network hardware solutions to its customers, initially in the US and expanding into other geographic markets in line with the ongoing development of their dedicated machine-to-machine network.
Second, B+B customers will have the ability through the Eco-system Partner portal to directly contact M2M SN’s network connectivity specialists and purchase mission- critical network connectivity data services for either primary or secondary back up support.
“Today’s announcement with industry leader B+B SmartWorx is another solid step on M2M Spectrum Networks' journey as an IoT leader with the US' only licensed, national wireless network dedicated solely to M2M connectivity,” said Barclay Knapp, CEO. “This partnership will further enable us to fully deliver an accelerated Internet of Things (IoT) landscape with B+B’s Connected Intelligence Global Partner Ecosystem. As a manufacturer of network connectivity technologies, B+B serves as the heart of IoT end solutions. This partnership will enable us to make intelligent connections with each other, combine expertise, and build effective IoT applications for end customers in this demanding space,” said Knapp.
B+B is equally excited to partner with M2M Spectrum Networks. “By partnering together our customers will be able to full leverage both hardware and a transport network that is specifically designed to truly address the Internet of Things”, said Jerry O’Gorman, President of B+B SmartWorx. “The industrial IoT is complex and needs specialists who understand the requirements needed to deliver secure, reliable, machine-to-machine networks.
