Comcast is keeping eyes on its B2B IoT network services platform machineQ, as the operator on Tuesday revealed five more enterprise clients.
Building on a similar announcement in March, Comcast said the latest wave of customers to utilize its LoRaWAN-based service span areas including asset tracking, utility metering and agriculture.
The latest customers include Massachusetts-based FAIRWAYiQ, an asset tracking company that provides real-time monitoring and management of motorized equipment and labor productivity at locations like golf courses, sports stadiums, universities and municipalities.
Utility metering company H2O Degree manufactures wireless utility sub-metering products for multi-family dwellings and commercial facilities to provide water leak detection and energy analytics.
Seco Sys makes an IoT water metering platform called HydraCommunity that is used by mining operations, campuses and utilities to read sensors measuring water quality, temperature, pressure and tank levels, leveraging the machineQ network.
SteamIQ, meanwhile, is a Massachusetts-based facilities management company providing real-time data on steam trap performance. Using the machineQ network, SteamIQ can wirelessly transmit data from deep indoor and underground locations.
Lastly, California-based Vinduino helps agriculture communities, particularly vineyards, more effectively manage water usage through open source technologies.
“We’re helping break down barriers to entry for B2B-focused IoT solution providers because our cloud-based, scalable and secure IoT hardware and software solutions have the ability to extract device data from hard to reach locations with low power requirements – that traditional wireless connectivity options can’t offer,” said Alex Khorram, general manager of machineQ, in a statement. “These qualities, are opening up a whole new world of use cases and vertical industries for our customers, leading to new market opportunities and helping them to quickly scale their business to meet their customers’ demands.”
The machineQ network is deployed across several markets, including the San Francisco Bay area, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington, D.C., among others.
