Telenet Group, the largest provider of cable broadband services and a leading mobile operator in Belgium, recenty announced the launch of its IoT platform, ‘Telenet Tinx’ for corporate customers.
Telenet Tinx IoT platform is created to make businesses smarter by allowing secure communication between devices and sensors via its own NB-IoT network. The new platform will be supported by a helpful toolbox of prebuilt services.
The platform enables communication between the smart devices, as well as data analysis and visualisation, in order to achieve new solutions and insights.
There are ready-made solutions for SMEs, but Telenet also develops custom IoT solutions for companies’ specific requirements. This is done in collaboration with technology partners such as IBM (Analytics), Microsoft (Azure Cloud), Imec (sensors), Artilium(systems integrator) and Unit-T, the joint venture with the French group Solutions 30, to enable the installation and maintenance of all the sensors.
As more and more devices are wirelessly connected to one another, they become more vulnerable to cyber threats, and for that Telenet focuses heavily on security for Tinx.
