By Ken Briodagh April 21, 2015

Cloud platform provider Kii and Finnish wireless device provider Haltian announced on April 21 that they would collaborate together to create state-of-the-art IoT devices and solutions aimed at consumers and businesses.

The two will begin development and production immediately, and plan to make a global release of the first line of devices this fall. The line will focus on products in child safety, Smart Wearable and Smart Home categories. In order to work quickly the two companies will combine their respective platforms into one package, which will be released the 15,000 independent developers already using Kii’s resources.

“Our collaboration with Haltian is focused on the overall user experience and end-to-end functionality ensuring these IoT solutions will be very attractive to customers,” said Masanari Arai, CEO, Kii. “Haltian’s product quality and technology innovation is so high since its core team members spun off Nokia. The combination of Haltian’s device hardware and software design excellence and Kii's massively scaled backend will result in a best of class offering.”

Haltian’s Thingsee IoT device platform has more than 12 different connectivity and sensor functions including GPS, 3D accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, temperature, humidity, pressure and ambient light. It also has wireless connectivity, with cellular, WLAN and future proof Bluetooth LE 4.1 and delivers battery life up to one year and waterproof IP67 protection.

 “We wanted to work with Kii because of their universal reputation as a global cloud services player and the fact they are the only company that has an established application developer community,” said Hannu Uusitalo VP, Haltian Silicon Valley. “Kii is also helping get distribution placement with many large global retailers, which is of great help as we launch our innovative device designs, in addition to the value of getting introduced into the Asian market.”

Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
