For the enterprises to begin their journey in the Internet of Things (IoT) segment, Tele2 AB in collaboration with Microsoft and Libelium is offering a complete IoT “plug & play” developer start kit. The collaboration is such that the kit will have Libelium hardware, Microsoft Azure IoT Platform, and connectivity from Tele2. With the kit, the enterprises can deploy IoT projects faster.
Besides the connectivity and the cloud platform, the IoT kit includes nodes for Smart Cities, Smart Security, Smart Environment and Smart Agriculture applications. It will be suitable for both small and large organizations, said Tele2 AB in a release.
Commenting on the new IoT kit, Rami Avidan, Managing Director, Tele2 IoT said, “These kits will lower the barriers to getting started and help our customers on their IoT journey. We are dedicated to working with our partners to simplify and give all enterprises the benefits of IoT with new revenue models, reduced time to market and lower operational costs. I believe this is a prime example of that dedication.”
“The Internet of Things generates a lot of hype but the lack of integrated solutions from hardware to application level is a barrier to fast adoption. The new kit with Tele2 connectivity and Microsoft Azure cloud platform, joined to Libelium devices, is removing this barrier,” said Alicia Asín, CEO, Libelium.
