Atilze: Connected Intelligence Platform Streamlines Real-World IoT Offerings
Our world built on the Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly becoming a reality and advancing with billions of connected devices and sensors that are growing at an exponential rate coming on-stream across the planet. The deployment of sensors facilitates smart implementations ranging from city environmental monitoring to managing traffic congestions and safer connected cars to improvement in crop yield; IoT shows light to a better connected future.
Nonetheless the market, at this juncture seems fragmented. In the above context, a Connected Intelligence platform is needed to integrate the hugely complex array of IoT smart sensor networks, diverse systems, and other platform environments to deliver the promise of an end-to-end solution offering. Atilze, a Kuala Lumpur-based company, has embarked on a vision to connect and deliver a positive impact to people’s living experiences by connecting together different IoT services under one holistic platform.
However, it is not about taking readings from sensors and generating reports or providing notifications on the data. Everyone can do that. What Atilze has done is to bring the action to the next level. This is the concept of Connected Intelligence - How the smart actions we take from the data impacts and even improves our life’s experiences to create that Connected Intelligence between the myriad sen-sors/devices and smart applications. For example: between smart utility and the environment in a city or connected car and smart home.
Atilze deploys smart IoT solutions and cloud-based data-driven applications for cities, vehicles, and agriculture leveraging, where needed, on the Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology of LoRa. The company boasts of a fully connected intelligence platform that encompasses an innovative, network connectivity agnostic, supporting industry-wide protocols that creates a programmable ‘Living Operating System or Living OS’ for smart cities. In August 2016, Atilze was instrumental in making Cy-berjaya, the 1st Smart City in Southeast Asia with a commercial ready LoRa sensor network.
Extensive data collected by the Atilze sensor network through LoRa gateways are stored into the Atilze cloud platform, for analysis and processing that aid in environment sensing, street lighting, car parking, traffic, and waste management.
What makes Atilze distinct is the people-centric approach in designing and developing solutions that are relevant to solving real-world problems
Triggers, alerts and notification events that are generated by the Atilze platform can be distributed directly to the right and relevant individuals or communities using several channels including SMS, push notifications on web or mobile, social networks, messaging apps, chat bots, emails, or automated phone calls.
The arsenal of services spans across similar intelligent applications for home and properties, buildings, offices, malls, factories, utilities, retailers, logistics, and even theme parks for tourism. Vehicles connected using 3G or 4G LTE can deliver solutions that include real-time diagnostics, predictive maintenance, while connected applications using LoRa in smart farming facilitates precision agriculture to increase crop yield, pest control, livestock tracking, and aquaculture including water quality management.
What makes Atilze distinct is the people-centric approach in designing and developing solutions that are relevant to solving real-world problems. Backed by a highly experienced team with diverse backgrounds, Atilze works on understanding the needs of its clients and users. Atilze is strategic partners with the Axiata Group’s subsidiary Axiata Business Services (also known as XPand) to deliver market-relevant IoT solutions for the operating regions of Axiata starting with Malaysia, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. Whole new revenue streams and value creation has been achieved by Axiata and its operating companies using Atilze’s market proven IoT applications and solutions.
Atilze is part of the Intel IoT Specialty Partnership program, the Microsoft App Catalog program, and the Huawei IoT Solution Partnership program. In addition, Atilze has the support of the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to implement smart city solutions.
The highly scalable and configurable Atilze Fabrick IoT Platform allows seamless integration of emerging technologies and any network protocols, coupled with an open application development environment for third-party developers. The platform extends its end-to-end comprehensive solution from devices to the network to cloud applications and commercial services. The Atilze Fabrick IoT Platform is just what every city and enterprise need to deliver a rich set of IoT services to be offered to its own group of customers and end consumers.
Atilze plans to expand into two more countries namely Philippines and Vietnam, having already established themselves in Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. Atilze aims to productize the Fabrick IoT Platform and license it as ready-to-use solutions for telecommunication operators and service providers for quick IoT applications deployment in their markets.
Atilze thrives on the mantra of constant change and innovation to succeed and remain market relevant.
