The future is happening now in the Triangle and Chris Lamb is leading the way.
On September 30, ninety-five people from the tech sector casually gathered in the cowork space of HQ Raleigh for RIoT, the Raleigh Internet of Things Meet-up. It was a chance to connect with like minds and witness first-hand how tomorrow is being created locally.
Chris proved his CTO skills by delivering a presentation called A Faster Path to IoT Solutions. He garnered laughter with a Joy of Tech graphic, and quiet when he mentioned that Device Solutions already has the embedded hardware to gather data from a device, and the software to connect it to the cloud through its partnership with Bright Wolf.
That fast path is Cellio. Cellio is our ready-to-go, off-the-shelf platform that enables data collection and control via a network of devices wirelessly connected through a variety of technologies and carriers. A cloud-based service provides extensive data analysis options and delivers notifications via email, text message, or dashboard.
Cellio solves the problem on both ends: how to collect the data, and how to receive it timely as operational intelligence to power your next decision. This is a working, adaptable system that can be rolled out quickly and without burdensome cost.
Tuesday night’s RIoT was organized by Matthew Davis of StepLeader, and supported by the Wireless Research Center of North Carolina, Verizon, Blackstone Entrepreneur’s Network, the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce, the City of Raleigh, and Device Solutions, among others.
We don’t know what Silicon Valley is working on this week, but we do know that our area of the country is on the expectant edge of explosive innovation.
