(8 August 2013) The Satellite Applications Catapult, a UK government-funded technology innovation centre, has purchased a suite of Eurotech’s multi service gateway devices and the Everyware Cloud machine-to-machine (M2M) integration platform to provide new businesses and entrepreneurs with the infrastructure to develop and test new technology and applications.
The Satellite Applications Catapult was established by the Technology Strategy Board and focuses on satellite technology applications. Eurotech is providing a walled garden version of the Everyware Cloud platform, along with multi service gateway edge devices to create an open framework for clients to build and test Machine to Machine and Internet of Things applications.
“An effective middleware platform that does the heavy lifting for security, connectivity and device management is a fundamental requirement for building applications that will become part of the Internet of Things,” said John Bourke, Head of Systems and Services at the Satellite Applications Catapult. “The Everyware Cloud also provides real time data exchange and a repository for data mining, giving us an off the shelf solution that provides everything our clients need to concentrate on their applications and bring them to market quickly.”
