Internet of Things and M2M

What is Internet of Things?

Picture a future of smart cities, automated processes, and digitised services and functionality, that will all be made possible by the Internet of Things (IoT). As your Internet of Things (IoT) partner, BCX will walk the journey to the future with you – from identifying an opportunity, to developing services and products as solutions to challenges, and everything in between. So whether you need to optimise your people, your processes or your physical environment, we will help you evaluate what is needed and implement a solution.

We enable digitisation, automation, and analytics so that you can make real-time decisions and enable new and fundamental business processes through what we call a Connective Intelligence.

We bundle our IoT know-how, connectivity solutions, engineering skills, and business optimisation solutions, to ensure high quality, robust delivery – from design to implementation – no matter what sector or environment your business operates in.

BCX approaches the technology and digitalisation of systems or products in a very structured way, so that we can maximise your return on investment. So we will take a project from the initial exploration sessions that assess the business and its opportunities, right through evaluation and specification, to solution design, execution, and maintenance.

Utilising IoT & M2M in Enterprise Business

IoT Solutions: Utilising IoT as a Technology Lever in Enterprise Business

Find out how the Internet of Things (IOT) can help your business become more efficient and more profitable, and how you can position to grow into the future.

Utilising M2M as a Technology Lever in Enterprise Business

Machine to Machine (M2M) is a driving factor in the Internet of Things (IoT). It uses technology such as a sensor or meter to capture an event or data point, which is then relayed through the network to an application that can translate the data into meaningful information for monitoring, tracking, or analysing purposes. Learn more about M2M and why it could become critical in your organisation.
