Rogers Launches IoT 'As a Service' for Canadian Businesses

Rogers Communications announced that it is the first Canadian carrier to offer Internet of Things (IoT) 'as a service' to enterprises to simplify the process of managing complex IoT solutions.

Two of the first solutions being offered as a service include Farm & Food Monitoring and Level Monitoring, and Rogers will deliver these exclusively with blueRover, a Canadian-based IoT provider that provides solutions across many industries. The solutions will be supported end-to-end by Rogers, including the management of devices, applications and connectivity for customers.

According to Rogers, these solutions allow businesses to securely track and monitor assets in real-time, and also automate manual business processes using sensor technology and secure data pathways. A Rogers-dedicated IoT Support team will additionally monitor these solutions to ensure the customer's service is always on.

Additional solutions being offered as a service today include Cold Chain Management and Food Safety Monitoring for restaurants and food kitchens.

With blueRover, we're bringing connectivity, monitoring and management of IoT solutions in-house so our customers can focus on running their business while we take care of managing the day-to-day.

By offering IoT solutions as a Service, Rogers, together with blueRover, have the potential to drive adoption of IoT solutions by removing the burden of managing these complex solutions for Canadian businesses.
