Apr. 9, 2018 – Nanotron Technologies GmbH and ClearBlade today announced a partnership to add ClearBlade’s Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing platform to Nanotron’s tracking software, which is described as delivering advanced Location Data Analytics (LDA) capabilities.
Nanotron says it creates “powerful insights into complex business processes” by applying a scalable and location technology-independent approach that generates position information connected to application-specific reference data. Meanwhile, the ClearBlade platform is described as providing the “necessary flexibility while handling all maintenance and security functions, leaving Nanotron to focus on its core competency: Location Data Analytics.”
As a result of the partnership, the ClearBlade platform will become a standard part of Nanotron’s location awareness and LDA solutions.
“We sought a leading-edge vendor that could support real-time processing, modularity, complete security, edge/cloud, remote provisioning, extensive databases, and provide tight integration with our software platform. ClearBlade was far and away the only vendor that fulfilled all of our strict criteria, and we are truly delighted to be able to work with the market leader in this field. Event-based analytics will reap the business benefits of location awareness,” said Nanotron CTO Rainer Hach.
Nanotron is a wholly owned German subsidiary of Sensera Limited, a designer and manufacturer of end-to-end sensor solutions and services for the rapidly-growing IoT market.
“Nanotron is a dominant player in location awareness, and ClearBlade’s platform will enable nanotron to offer market-leading LDA solutions. We expect this to be a successful long-term relationship that will benefit both our companies and our customers,” continued Aaron Allsbrook, CTO at ClearBlade.
