Wyless and Tridium to partner strategically

Wyless, an international wireless data communications company, and Tridium have announced a strategic partnership. The partnership will enable Tridium to provide wireless connectivity for its JACE (Java Application Control Engine) controllers. Powered by the NiagaraAX Framework, JACE's connect different systems and devices - regardless of manufacturer, or communication protocol - into a unified platform that is managed and controlled in real-time over the Internet.

Wyless will provide GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) connectivity over its managed global wireless data network and an Internet-based management platform, which connects the JACE controllers to its wireless network, providing Tridium with a new M2M (machine-to-machine) wireless solution. The wireless solution means no fixed lines are required for external connectivity, and therefore deployment is made easier and faster. Tridium will be offering its customers three usage options of the new JACE wireless solution.

Marc Petock, Vice President, Global Marketing and Communications at Tridium commented, "We went with Wyless for a number of reasons: its global reach greatly increases our footprint, it has a strong reputation for network reliability and we are able to offer our customers a high level of customer service due to the network resilience and expertise on offer. We are about giving people choices and with this new wireless service we can offer customers solutions that will work anywhere."

Wyless enables organisations to outsource the management of their wireless networks to lower security risks, costs and complexities, while gaining control over connections using the unique online Wyless Management Platform.

Rami Avidan, CEO Wyless Group added, "Tridium is a very exciting, fast-growing company with over 100,000 deployments of its technology worldwide. The partnership will expand our residential market, opening up a range of new opportunities, and strengthen our presence in industrial sectors such as building automation, utilities and broader monitoring and control systems."
