OMNIFLOW choses SORACOM for M2M Communications
Denmark – February 24, 2017 –OMNIFLOW, SA announced today adoption of SORACOM network and services for global connectivity and data management.
OMNIFLOW is a smart energy startup with headquarters in Porto, Portugal. Its main product, OMNILED, debuted in 2015 and offers an autonomous wind/solar energy platform for both urban and remote areas. At a high level, OMNIFLOW aims to:
- Democratize utility infrastructure
- Act as an energy solution with storage capability
- Provide an out-of-the-box autonomous system
- Deliver remote web-based monitoring and control
Each individual unit has communications capabilities for real-time monitoring. Seeking a general solution to manage any or every unit was part of OMNIFLOW’s development roadmap.
OMNIFLOW has created the hardware and corresponding monitor and control platform that handles the communication between each OMNILED and the cloud infrastructure. However the complexity of ensuring a secured connection while managing the current growing data needs led OMNIFLOW to search for a long term, sustainable and M2M-oriented worldwide network partner.
“The data from our units is vital for us and our clients. SORACOM came to us with a cost-effective solution that is viable for every part involved”, said Pedro Ruão, CEO at OMNIFLOW.
“OMNIFLOW brings to the table a fully autonomous smart lighting system and groundbreaking vertical wind turbine with integrated Solar Cells. I’ve never seen a vertical wind turbine design with additional solar power capability. Awesome, this is the answer that various players have been looking for,” said Velipekka Kuoppala, VP Sales and Business Development at SORACOM.
