Axeda Corporation  (Foxboro, Mass., U.S.A.), a cloud platform provider for M2M and connected devices, and ClearConnex  (Raleigh, N.C., U.S.A.),a company providing products and engineering services targeted at M2M and wireless devices, announced an alliance to streamline the building and delivery of wireless M2M products.
With this new agreement, the Axeda Platform, a cloud platform that allows connected devices to connect to a network, now integrates with the portable ClearComm wireless device agent, which is hardware agnostic and supports leading modems and modules from companies such as Sierra Wireless , Maestro Wireless and GenX Mobile. ClearComm also supports custom devices, enabling communication with any device selected.
“As companies move to take advantage of the benefits of connecting their products, it is imperative that we as solution providers make the process as easy as possible,” said Bill Zujewski, EVP of product strategy and marketing, Axeda Corporation.
The Axeda M2M Cloud Service accelerates M2M application development due to its open architecture built on standards-based technology, M2M data model, rules engine and built-in Web Services, according to Axeda. The cloud service  can manage multiple types of connections and assets, process large amounts of unstructured data, and provide enterprise-grade scalability and security, says Axeda.
“Having out-of-the-box integration…reduces cost and time-to-market…and enables them to immediately take advantage of the industry’s leading M2M application development platform,” said Ryan Rangel, CEO, ClearConnex. “We believe this alliance will dramatically reduce complexity for customers by eliminating a steep learning curve and allowing them to quickly add high value wireless capability to products and services.”
