SensorLogic partners with Sprint in M2M initiative

SensorLogic, Inc (Boston, Mass., U.S.A.), a provider of cloud-based platforms for machine-to-machine (M2M) application development, on Tuesday announced that it is teaming with Sprint (Overland Park, Kan., U.S.A.) to help enterprise customers build and deploy M2M applications and managed services.
The collaboration enables Sprint’s customers to leverage their company’s network infrastructure in combination with SensorLogic’s application enablement platform.

“Sprint’s platform manages the way devices behave on the data network.  The SensorLogic platform provides application building blocks that allow integrators and enterprise organizations to build and manage connected applications,” says John Riley, director of marketing communications at SensorLogic.  “In a nutshell, Sprint provides APIs; SensorLogic provides a platform or APIs that are about application enablement.”

SensorLogic has joined the Sprint Developer program and is working with the company’s Emerging Solutions Group (ESG) to offer its Service Delivery Platform to Sprint customers. The two companies will jointly promote their respective offerings in the M2M market.

“Most, if not all, M2M initiatives have many common features- they all involve connected devices which provide valuable information about the identification and condition of something in the real world.  How applications extract that data, normalize it, story it, analyze and act upon it is an important and sometimes expensive undertaking,” says Riley.  “SensorLogic provides a set of cloud-based services that eliminate the need to re-create features in the applications that are being built by Sprint’s customer.”

According to Riley, these features can include device-specific data extraction protocols, geo-services like mapping and geofences, simple and complex event management, and reports. 

“The end game is really to help our common customers do things faster and cheaper,” says Riley.

SensorLogic has similar agreements with Verizon Wireless and AT&T.  The company also plans to announce similar relationships outside of the U.S. in the fourth quarter of 2011.
