Huddersfield-based VoIP hardware distributor ProVu has launched a sister company specialising in the supply, delivery and ongoing management of IoT devices throughout the UK and Ireland.
Alliot Technologies aims to make the deployment of IoT devices from leading manufacturers as simple and affordable as possible by wrapping value added services around the products, such as UK stock holding, provisioning, next day delivery and ongoing device management.
Darren Garland, Managing Director of ProVu and Alliot, said: “Established in the early days of VoIP, ProVu fostered relationships with techies who had a keen interest in developing the technology into commercial applications. We plan to adopt this winning approach with Alliot. Thanks to 20 years of experience, ProVu is well positioned to support the growth of Alliot, particularly with its expertise in device provisioning and management, all of which will be relevant to IoT products.”
He added: “According to a government report, the number of connected devices could be anywhere from 20 billion to 100 billion by 2020, illustrating the huge potential that lies with IoT.”
Alliot is currently introducing a new range of LoRa products, following the launch of the LORIX One LoRaWAN gateway last year.
