Blues announced its partnership with industrial-focused connectivity and hardware manufacturer, RAKwireless. Blues’ Notecard is now available across RAKwireless’ extensive portfolio of WisBlock modules, sensors and enclosures, simplifying global cellular connectivity for IIoT solutions.
IIoT products are often stalled by complex physical design features and incompatibility between connectivity options. Together, Blues and RAKwireless will provide global customers with a simple and pre-configured cellular IIoT solution, Blues.ONE, and a composable WisBlock interface board, RAK13102. Interchangeable components make it easy to adjust, tailor and refine IIoT solutions and connectivity options, even for less technical users.
“Our partnership with RAKwireless is revolutionary for IIoT advancement, bringing together Blues’ scalability, security and simplicity, and the unique modularity of the WisBlock ecosystem. With Blues’ Notecard, RAKwireless’ Blues.ONE and RAK13102 will simplify programming for engineers, allowing them to streamline IIoT product deployment,” said Brandon Satrom, VP of Developer Experience and VP of Product at Blues. “It’s now easier than ever to build cellular IIoT solutions using bundled coverage and data in over 139 countries.”
The simplified IIoT development process enabled by Blues and RAKwireless will allow customers to quickly deploy devices for individual use cases including industrial equipment monitoring and asset tracking. With cellular and LoRa options, RAKwireless and Blues customers around the world can rapidly create IIoT solutions that support wireless harmonisation.
“Blues’ Notecard and RAKwireless’ WisBlock solutions offer a simplified and seamless IIoT connectivity solution that bypasses traditional complexities. This partnership accelerates prototyping and provides users with a holistic solution that enables smooth transitions across regions,” said Ken Yu, CEO at RAKwireless. “The adaptability of Blues’ technology and the assurance of backup connectivity ensures that our users can experience uninterrupted IIoT connectivity.”
