07 Nov For this new smart city venture, small is beautiful
While corporate giants and big cities are adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technology at a fervent pace1 , a new venture seeks to help smaller businesses and towns take advantage of IoT’s vast potential too.
Telecommunications consultancy B2 Group announced that it was launching Directed IoT. The focus of the new division is to aid the implementation of “last mile” IoT initiatives for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) and mid-sized towns and cities.
“In today’s market, many segments of the IoT ecosystem are under-served and we believe that the Directed IoT division can fill the gap in needed services and expertise,” said Bob Bilbruck, CEO of the Irvine, California-based B2 Group.
The new venture aims to help modest-sized businesses and urban areas manage, operate and monetize IoT-based business models to get the most out of the new technology.
