An interesting story from Bristol with Sixis Technology  being launched to roll out a rugged IoT gateway.

Sixis is a subsidiary of Telemisis which supplies end-to-end monitoring systems for power and telecoms networks. The gateway hardware and connection manager server-side software has been spun off into the new venture for other markets such as water monitoring and smart cities.

 “We aim to help system integrators and developers of Industrial IoT applications to bring their products to market more quickly and at a lower cost, by providing them with a complete Industrial IoT device solution,” said Chris Begent, Co-founder of Sixis.

“We’ve poured over 100 man-years of experience into the design and manufacture of every Sixis device solution, laying a solid foundation for any Industrial IoT application”, said the other co-founder, Tony Richardson. “The technology is already deployed with customers in over 100 countries across six continents.” One Telemisis customer has over 9000 of the gateways deployed around the world.

The Sixis Connection Manage handles communications between all Sixis devices and is deployed as part of an application on a customer server. This handles the secure communications with the gateway and provides remote device management and configuration, remote control of equipment, and ensures accurate sensor data collection and integrity. An open API allows system developers to easily include the application in a network."
