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.
