OptConnect Adds Banyan Hills Technologies' IoT Platform Canopy to Its Development Kits

OptConnect, a provider of managed wireless services, has announced that it has partnered with Banyan Hills Technologies to provide its customizable Internet of Things (IoT) platform, known as Canopy, with each ema:Play development kit. The kits allow engineers and developers to test OptConnect's ema embedded modem in a sandbox environment for integration into their host boards.

Canopy takes real-time data from a device connected on a network and centralizes it into a single management platform to support operations. This provides customers with an end-to-end IoT software solution that enables centralized monitoring, management and control of large networks of devices and control systems.

"We're proud to partner with the excellent team at Banyan Hills. Canopy is a fantastic IoT platform that blends wonderfully with ema:Play," said Steve Garrett, OptConnect's chief product officer, in a prepared statements. "Over the past few months, we've seen the success that small and large companies have had using the combined services of OptConnect and Banyan Hills, and we expect that trend to accelerate." With this year's launch of the ema solution, OptConnect is continuing to develop and add new features to the embedded modem and the ema:Play development kit.

OptConnect says it intends for ema:Play to serve as a testing ground for its customers. Canopy's customizable platform is suitable for developers testing out ema:Play and will provide additional real-time insights and value for customers, the company reports. "We're thrilled to partner with OptConnect, a world-class leader in wireless connectivity," said Steve Latham, Banyan Hills Technologies' CEO and founder, in the prepared statement. "Our collaboration with OptConnect will extend how engineers and developers use this technology and provide customers with end-to-end value for their connectivity and IoT strategies."
