eir Business is partnering with Dublin IT firm Asavie to launch a new nationwide internet of things (IoT) service aimed at businesses.

IoT Connect will be pitched at small and large companies in multiple fields, including healthcare, transport and manufacturing, to connect assets in the field to the internet and collect real-time, intelligent data to optimise the design and delivery of products and services.

The service is built on Asavie PassBridge, an IoT connectivity platform designed to enable telecom providers such as eir to deliver secure SIM-based M2M connectivity solutions.

eir IoT Connect will provide businesses with cellular mobile connectivity (including global roaming), an online self-care portal to manage their IoT assets and a choice of private or internet-based network solutions.

Bill Archer, managing director of eir Business, said: “Together with Asavie, eir Business makes managing connected devices easier than ever, so businesses can focus on collecting their data, refining their applications and ultimately building a better service for their customers.”

Ralph Shaw (pictured), CEO of Asavie, added: “To compete in today’s IoT-driven economy, connectivity and the ability to securely manage the vast amounts of data transacted between devices is of paramount importance.

“eir’s IoT Connect, enables enterprises to confidently deploy and scale their M2M projects by securely managing their connection to the internet.”

Founded in 2004, Asavie sells enterprise mobility and internet-of-things (IoT) solutions in Ireland, the UK, the US and elsewhere.

The firm’s technology allows machines to communicate with each other and with back-end operations quickly and securely through the cloud. It also helps mobile operators set up and securely manage high-speed access to business systems and services for their customers and staff.
