To transform geographically disperse industrial operations, you need visibility of intelligent data at the edge — as well as the ability to proactively manipulate it and make it actionable. FreeWave Technologies and New Zealand-based ModuSense have launched a joint venture that will make turn-key industrial IOT (IIoT) edge systems a reality, quickly and cost-effectively.
Today, FreeWave delivers an ecosystem of edge intelligent radios and systems, manufactured in the U.S., to optimize the extreme edge of remote industrial operations and create a more connected enterprise. Its existing offering enables high-fidelity data capture, analysis, control, and automation via a scalable IIoT platform. ModuSense complements FreeWave's portfolio adding proven full-stack, off-the-shelf SaaS products and more flexible, agile gateway sensing systems. The combination of these strengths stands to deliver on accelerating global hardware and software IIoT development capabilities in a meaningful and immediately measurable way.
"The ModuSense joint venture expands our portfolio and accelerates our ability to bring fully integrated, game-changing IIoT to market quickly," says FreeWave Technologies CEO Kirk Byles. "Their entrepreneurial model will ultimately provide us access to a flexible, agile innovation center allowing us to respond to both customer and market needs faster with both off-the-shelf and fully customized IIoT.”
