Gartner has named Axiros as a Cool Vendor in the IoT space, and notes the increasing interest and hype surrounding the Internet of Things.

Axiros specialises in device management and IoT solutions for service providers, enterprises, and OEMs.

New ‘Cool Vendors’ are identified every year by Gartner in key technology areas such as IoT. The research analysts publish a series of research reports highlighting these vendors and their products and services.

"The level of interest and hype for the Internet of Things is translating into proof-of-concept projects for many enterprises," says Alfonso Velosa, Gartner research VP IoT.

"They want to understand key requirements for building block technologies as well as business models.

“Many companies are developing IoT platforms for leveraging gateway-based architectures to connect IoT endpoints to enterprise IT and OT systems via the cloud," says Velosa.

Gunther Klessinger, Axiros founder and MD Innovation, says, "Axiros is one of the companies in this crowded space that has an interesting business model and technology approach.

“We recognised that the next big thing after social networks for humans is 'social' networks serving devices." 

"When founding the company we built all open device specific protocols around a content management system, serving device requests in the same principal way as those of their users.

“This principle serves us well for IoT today and in the future," says Klessinger.

Axiros' IoT platform, Axperience 2.0, can be used to design and deploy applications on a heterogeneous connected infrastructure.

The Axiros IoT platform leverages the DevOps architecture of its communication products to bridge the gap between the need for continuous innovation and the operational safety of critical infrastructures in electrical grids, home security, building management, health and transportation.

"The Internet of Things allows unprecedented service offerings for providers whose infrastructure and service layer can cope with the massive amount of signals to be processed," said Kurt Peterhans, Axiros CEO.

"When Axiros was founded 13 years ago, we had foresight to design our technology around open device management technologies, which is vital for serving device requests in the same way as those of their users.

“We are dedicated to IoT-ising current and future service offerings, to help service providers monetise and extend the lifespan of their investment.

“We are proud to be recognised as a Gartner's Cool Vendor for IoT in 2015," says Peterhans.
