End-to-end solution establishes new model for servicing mobile, isolated, and non-connected assets
FOXBORO, Mass. and MINNETONKA, Minn., Feb. 26 - Axeda Corporation, the secure remote service and support company, and Digi International, the leader in device networking for business, have partnered to provide an end-to-end solution for connecting and remotely servicing intelligent devices where wireline infrastructure is unavailable or cost prohibitive.
With this partnership, Axeda and Digi combine Digi Drop-in Networking components with the Axeda remote service platform to enable manufacturers and service providers to reduce service costs by actively managing mobile and isolated assets.
"There is a universe of devices that cannot be easily connected for cost- effective remote service," said Dale Calder, president and CEO, Axeda. "With this partnership, Axeda and Digi have radically simplified the process of connecting mobile and isolated assets to the enterprise, delivering Axeda(R) ServiceLink remote service capabilities to these systems."
Together, Axeda and Digi will expand the base of customers that can now take advantage of the inherent benefits of secure remote service . benefits that include increased revenue through product differentiation and higher value service contracts - all delivered at lower cost.
"Axeda is a valuable addition to the Drop-in Networking community," said Joseph Dunsmore CEO, Digi International. "The Axeda ServiceLink solution enables our customers to leverage the data they collect from their assets and turn it into actionable information."
Digi Drop-in Networking solutions include ZigBee®/802.15.4 wireless mesh gateways, adapters, modules, extenders, and environmental sensors, as well as RF-based serial and Ethernet cable replacement products. These products can be used to connect or network-enable electronic devices and sensors where no wired networking infrastructure exists, where access to an existing network is prohibited, or when laying cable is impractical or cost prohibitive.
A demonstration of the integrated Axeda and Digi solution is on display this week at IQPC's "Implementing Smart Remote Services Conference" in San Diego. For more information, visit: http://axeda.com/news_event.htm.
