Participation will help drive thought leadership and innovation based on more than 18 years of experience in the enterprise IoT space
Austin, TX – May 20, 2016 – RF Code, a leading provider of enterprise IoT solutions for real-time operational intelligence across asset lifecycle management and environmental monitoring in datacenters and healthcare, today announced that it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a global not-for-profit organization comprising 250+ member companies that have united to accelerate the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
As a member of the IIC, RF Code will leverage its expertise in the application of wire-free sensor technology, real-time data collection, scalable management platforms and intelligent analytics across large-scale enterprise datacenters and other industrial deployments, to contribute to the development of new business models, use-cases, reference architectures and joint solutions for IoT within the IIC charter. Additionally, RF Code’s proficiency in Real Time Location System (RTLS) solutions will be of unique benefit to the consortium, as the proliferation of related devices in commercial and industrial applications have played a major role in expanding the scope of the IoT. RTLS solutions have evolved over time into IIoT applications and have the proven ability to eliminate manual processes, reduce errors, increase efficiency, and eliminate waste across multiple industries, thereby providing impressive benefits for critical organizational assets.
Most recently, RF Code launched CenterScape in July of 2015 and CenterScape Cloud in early 2016; data center IoT solutions that provide real-time insight, control and predictability over operational risks, costs and compliance in enterprise and colocation data centers. CenterScape’s real-time service optimization and data analytics tools provide the intelligence required to accurately visualize and manage the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of data centers and distributed IT investments.
Founded in 2014, the IIC brings together corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers and governments into one community to advance innovation and share best practices. Membership includes the world’s most progressive and innovative companies that have joined together to solve the challenges in IIoT: interoperability through an open framework architecture, security requirements, specifications for standards, and more.
“Working with other members of the IIC, RF Code looks forward to helping shape how the IIOT will be utilized by businesses in the coming years,” said Ed Healy, CEO of RF Code. “Having operated within the IoT space for the last 18 years and observed its steady growth, we are welcoming this new opportunity to collaborate and provide guidance on new applications of the Industrial Internet.”
“As the number of connected devices continues to grow, managing data and assets in real time is essential for business success in both commercial and industrial settings,” said Dr. Richard M. Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. “We are pleased to welcome RF Code to the IIC and look forward to their expertise and contributions in real-time operational intelligence to further the development and adoption of the Industrial Internet.”
