Sierra Wireless’ Octave is an all-in-one edge-to-cloud solution for Industrial IoT (IIoT) that enables businesses to accelerate their data-driven digital transformation. Octave is built on 25 years of Sierra Wireless IoT experience to deliver a new way for OEMs and industrial companies to access machine data in the cloud. By providing simple Cloud APIs to securely extract, orchestrate and act on data from remote assets, Octave eliminates the complex integration between hardware, firmware and cloud software, allowing businesses to get IoT applications up and running within days, instead of months.

“Octave eliminates the complexities of implementing and scaling IoT solutions, allowing industrial companies to cost-effectively access the benefits of IoT without the risks,” said Olivier Pauzet, Vice President, Product & IoT Solutions, Sierra Wireless. “With Octave, customers can focus on building their business rather than reinventing technical infrastructure, dramatically reducing costs and development time for OEMs, system integrators and enterprises. We are proud to receive this 2020 Mobile Breakthrough Award and look forward to continued success in helping organizations reduce their time to revenue, as well as development, management, and maintenance costs.”

The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of mobile and wireless technology categories, including Cloud Computing, Mobile Management, Wireless and Broadband, Mobile Analytics, IoT and Smart City and many more. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the wireless industry.

“While the promise of IoT is impressive, the reality is that it is difficult, complex and time consuming to integrate wireless edge technology,” stated James Johnson, managing director, Mobile Breakthrough. “Sierra Wireless’ Octave addresses these challenges head-on, creating a new category of IoT solutions, with cloud-based features that provide all the components of distributed IoT connectivity in a single, integrated solution. We are thrilled to recognize Sierra Wireless for their breakthrough Octave solution and congratulate the entire Sierra Wireless team for their well-deserved ‘IoT Innovation of the Year’ award.”

With its unique distributed data orchestration capabilities and security features, Octave abstracts away the complexity involved in integrating IoT into existing company infrastructure, empowering businesses to easily and quickly develop IoT applications, collect IoT application data and analyze this data for actionable insights. By building edge-to-cloud connectivity into products, companies can collect data about how equipment is being used, allowing them to maximize performance and uptime, reduce maintenance costs and offer transformational equipment-as-a-service and consumption-based services.

With interfaces to all major cloud service providers, Octave turns the Industrial IoT into a set of simple cloud APIs that companies can merge with their existing IT systems. For example, Sierra Wireless announced the successful integration between Octave and Microsoft Azure IoT Central, enabling developers to deploy secure, intelligent, and reliable IoT device connectivity and collect data as an extension of their Microsoft Azure experience.
