Electric Imp Announces Integration with Google Cloud Platform for New and Retrofit IoT Deployments

By Ken Briodagh September 25, 2018

Electric Imp, a provider of secure edge-to-enterprise cloud connectivity, has announced the integration of its Electric Imp IoT Connectivity Platform with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), designed to enable companies to quickly develop, deploy and scale IoT solutions and maximize business value. The combined platforms provide a solution for IoT applications such as asset tracking, remote monitoring and predictive maintenance that increase business efficiency, lower costs and enable new services.

The Electric Imp Platform is designed to complement the GCP by providing a highly secure, bidirectional “first mile” link that connects devices to the cloud. The Electric Imp Platform supports a wide array of connectivity scenarios, from simple stationary applications to challenging mobile deployments. It is suited to highly complex applications requiring both stationary and mobile connectivity thanks to its ability to switch between Ethernet, Wi-Fi and cellular networks. With data from these devices delivered to the GCP, companies can take advantage of Google’s AI, machine learning and analytics tools.

“Securely and reliably connecting a large and growing number of devices is key to the success of any IoT deployment,” said Antony Passemard, Head of Product Management for Cloud IoT, Google Cloud. “The Electric Imp Platform can provide this critical connectivity with our Google Cloud Platform.”

“Integrating the Google Cloud Platform and our Electric Imp IoT Connectivity Platform enables companies to quickly realize the potential of IoT by reducing complexity and streamlining the effort to deploy, commission, secure and manage IoT devices at scale,” said Hugo Fiennes, CEO and Co-Founder of Electric Imp. “The result is a powerful combination of secure connectivity, massive scalability and big data analytics capabilities ideal for new and retrofit IoT applications that create substantial business benefits and competitive advantages for customers.”

The Electric Imp Platform, already deployed on millions of devices with over 100 customers worldwide, includes:

  • A secure, purpose-built Edge-to-Enterprise IoT Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  • Platform certification for UL 2900-2-2 (Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems)
  • Managed security and platform maintenance
  • Customizable for a wide array of commercial and industrial applications, from asset and energy management to remote monitoring
