Wyless and Tridium Announce Strategic Partnership



    LONDON, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - Wyless, the international wireless data
communications company, and Tridium, the global leader in application software
frameworks, automation infrastructure technology and device-to-enterprise
integration solutions, have announced a strategic partnership.
    The partnership will enable Tridium to provide wireless connectivity for
its JACE (Java Application Control Engine) controllers. Powered by the
NiagaraAX Framework, JACE's connect different systems and devices - regardless
of manufacturer, or communication protocol - into a unified platform that is
managed and controlled in real-time over the Internet.
    Wyless will provide GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) connectivity over
its managed global wireless data network and an Internet-based management
platform, which connects the JACE controllers to its wireless network,
providing Tridium with a new M2M (machine-to-machine) wireless solution. The
wireless solution means no fixed lines are required for external connectivity
and therefore deployment is made easier and faster. Tridium will be offering
its customers three usage options of the new JACE wireless solution.
    Marc Petock, Vice President, Global Marketing and Communications at
Tridium commented, "We went with Wyless for a number of reasons: its global
reach greatly increases our footprint, it has a strong reputation for network
reliability and we are able to offer our customers a high level of customer
service due to the network resilience and expertise on offer. We are about
giving people choices and with this new wireless service we can offer
customers solutions that will work anywhere."
    Wyless enables organisations to outsource the management of their
wireless networks to lower security risks, costs and complexities, while
gaining control over connections using the unique online Wyless Management
Platform.
    Rami Avidan, CEO Wyless Group added, "Tridium is a very exciting,
fast-growing company with over 100,000 deployments of its technology
worldwide. The partnership will expand our residential market, opening up a
range of new opportunities, and strengthen our presence in industrial sectors
such as building automation, utilities and broader monitoring and control
systems."
