ST Engineering Electronics, SP Group and SP Telecom have jointly launched a common IoT platform for businesses. This platform is a new trial pay-per-use IoT-as-a-Service (IoT-aaS). On this platform, resources can be shared without investment on infrastructure, connectivity, data analytics and applications, ST said.
The IoT platform enables partners to also leverage the secure network, thousands of SP Telecom hubs across the country and a multi-edge computing IoT platform to bring their services to their customers.
Service is delivered through a centralised IoT platform with advanced data analytics to generate greater insights for predictive actions. The platform is also built to optimise shared computing resources, while maintaining independent, secure operations and control for subscribers. This creates an “Open IoT system” that operates as a one-stop shop, delivering connectivity for IoT deployment.
According to ST, IoT partners can jointly build smart city applications like smart, energy-efficient, green buildings along with intelligent cloud network and multi-access edge computing infrastructure. Deployment can range from public safety and security systems, transport, public amenities such as street lighting, energy and water resource management, lift monitoring to other facilities management services.
