IoT integration platform vendor Reekoh has licensed its platform to 200,000 residents Ipswich City Council.
Reekoh's platform will be used by the council for their internet of things, data intelligence and digital city initiatives.
“Reekoh is really a capability more than technology. Once we enable a customer with the capability to address the messy fragmentation that exists within IoT, they can move ahead with confidence to choose the best of breed solutions for each specific requirement,” Reekoh CEO, Dale Rankine, said.
“Smart cities are a perfect example of where fragmentation can become difficult to manage very quickly, and Reekoh is designed to solve this for the organisation on day 1 and beyond.”
Ipswich Council Smart City Program, which proposes to embrace new ways of living, learning and working as Australia’s most liveable and prosperous Smart City, has been awarded with the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) Premier of Queensland’s Advance Queensland Advance for Public Sector Transformation.
The Ipswich team has been engaging with an increasing number of ICT and IoT vendors to assist with bringing their vision to life.
“It’s always great to meet with customers who have started their journey on implementing real IoT solutions, and who are regarded as leaders in their space or industry vertical.
“Ipswich City is well known for its commitment to becoming Australia’s most liveable and prosperous Smart City, and we’re excited to be a part of their solution stack to make the implementation, and integration, of these projects easier,” Rankine said.
Founded in Australia in 2015, Reekoh has recently been profiled on Gartner’s Cool Vendors in the Internet of Things, 2017 list.
The company’s technology partners include Microsoft, Equinix and Kyocera.
In November 2016, Reekoh signed a deal with Kyocera Communications Systems in a move designed to drive greater adoption of the company’s Internet of Things integration platform across Asia.
In June 2017, the vendor started to offer its integration platform to enterprises through Equinix’s facilities in Australia.
Most recently, Reekoh closed a deal with the WaterGroup that sees Reekoh’s IoT open integration platform used within WaterGroup’s range of smart metering and water savings services, to help deliver $1 million of savings to Australian customers.
