Xiamen, China, and Tokyo, Japan, October 26th, 2023 - Milesight, a leading provider of innovative sensing products and solutions, together with Asteria Corporation, a leading enterprise software company, announced a deep technical collaboration in order to simplify the implementation of IoT solutions mainly including indoor air quality (IAQ), smart offices, smart buildings, smart cities, smart agriculture, smart manufacturing and many other verticals. Both Milesight and Asteria agreed on technical cooperation and mutual promotion of the integrated Milesight LoRaWAN® gateways, sensors and Asteria’s Node Computing Platform - Gravio.
What is a Node Computing platform?
A node computing platform, according to Asteria, enables leveraging cloud as well as edge applications equally in a distributed fashion. Gravio specifically enables anyone to build business applications from aggregated data in a no-code environment. Now, as part of Asteria’s portfolio, Milesight LoRaWAN® Gateways allow seamless connectivity to the Gravio platform. With this integration, users will be able to build business processes from IoT data that is collected from Milesight sensors at the edge or in the cloud alike.
