“The Internet of Things allows unprecedented service offerings for providers whose infrastructure and service layer can cope with the massive amount of signals to be processed,” said Kurt Peterhans, CEO of Axiros. “When Axiros was founded 13 years ago, we had foresight to design our technology around open device management technologies, which is vital for serving device requests in the same way as those of their users. We are dedicated to IoT-izing current and future service offerings, to help service providers monetize and extend the lifespan of their investment. We are proud to be recognized as a Gartner’s Cool Vendor for IoT in 2015.”1

“The level of interest and hype for the Internet of Things is translating into proof-of-concept projects for many enterprises,” says Alfonso Velosa, Research VP Internet of Things for Gartner. “They want to understand key requirements for building block technologies as well as business models. Many companies are developing IoT platforms for leveraging gateway-based architectures to connect IoT endpoints to enterprise IT and OT systems via the cloud."
“Axiros is one of the companies in this crowded space that has an interesting business model and technology approach. We recognized that the next big thing after social networks for humans is ‘social’ networks serving devices,” stated Gunther Klessinger, Axiros founder and MD Innovation. “When founding the company we built all open device specific protocols around a content management system, serving device requests in the same principal way as those of their users. This principle serves us well for IoT today and in the future.”
