- Messaging capabilities to be integrated into CitiSense Smart City IoT platform
- Companies say this will help increase cities’ safety, efficiency and resiliency
KUALA LUMPUR-based REDtone IOT Sdn Bhd and Singapore-headquartered Unified Inbox Pte Ltd said they are working together to bring messaging capabilities to the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities.
With this partnership, the two companies will integrate REDtone IOT’s CitiSense Smart City IoT solution with Unified Inbox’s UnificationEngine IoT messaging capabilities to enable products and software to communicate with people and things, they said in a statement.
According to REDtone IOT chief executive officer Dr Mazlan Abbas, the partnership would enhance its CitiSense platform with new smart city/ smart nation IoT capabilities which will increase cities’ safety, efficiency and resiliency.
REDtone IOT said it connects things and aggregates their data to the cloud, transforming businesses and governments by delivering actionable insights.
The company, a subsidiary of Bursa Malaysia-listed REDtone International Bhd, recently won the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Innovative Smart City Solution Provider of the Year award. REDtone International itself is a subsidiary of Berjaya Corporation Bhd.
“Citizens and visitors alike will now be able to communicate with all of their different connected devices on the communications channels they use most including email, SMS, social media, chat/messaging apps, website content management systems, outdoor screens and projectors and more,” said Unified Inbox chief executive officer Toby Ruckert.
“Integrating REDtone IOT’s platform with Unified Inbox’s IoT messaging platform will enable citizens everywhere to talk to their local and national governments on the communications channels they use every day, just as they would any other contact in their smartphone’s address book,” he added.
