October 20, 2017 – Sixgill, LLC unveiled the next generation of its scalable sensor data services platform, Sixgill Sense 2.0.
Sense 2.0 provides vital capabilities for companies attempting to govern their Internet of Everything (IoE) assets. The extensible platform specifically is designed to meet the needs of application developers and product owners who are building sensor-informed applications for IoT, IIoT and IoE. Nearly all industries need task-specific applications to manage torrents of new sensor data and exploding numbers of connected assets that comprise IoE, including people, places and things.
With its expanded combination of technology, services and capacity-maximizing capabilities, Sense provides companies with continuous sensor data collection and real-time understanding of what assets are available, where they are and their operating state. This allows customers to keep their IoE assets, actions and behaviors on track. The Sense 2.0 platform delivers:
- Extensibility and adoptability
- Scalable real-time edge processing
- Custom rules toolkit for triggering actions programmatically
- Flexible deployment on any cloud or data center
- Intrinsic security features
- A pre-built Geo IoE plugin for advanced geofencing, proximity services and asset tracking
- Centralized administration and monitoring
Sense is available now to select customers, with full availability scheduled for later this year.
Sixgill Sense data services are already proven in the field. Sense supports applications available on over 50 million devices by a major U.S. carrier, and has powered crowd management and audience communications at large events in the U.S. and Europe.
Sixgill recently announced the completion of a Series B funding totaling $27.9 million. The round was led by an affiliate of Chicago-based DRW Ventures, which invests in disruptive new enterprise technologies. Mobile Financial Partners, of Alexandria, VA, is also participating.
