Globetouch Inc. and Virtuosys today announced a partnership to co-develop the next generation of cloud connected edge computing devices and applications. Both companies made the announcement during Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017, a conference and expo bringing together industry leaders to meet and explore new business models in mobile technology.
Globetouch Inc. is a leader in global connectivity services and IoT platforms for the connected vehicle and the Internet of Things (IoT) market. Virtuosys is recognized for its revolutionary edge application platform, a highly secure software and hardware solution that facilitates cloud-edge communications, while also distributing computing power and capacity at the edge.
Together, the companies will develop a software SIM (soft Sim) cellular connected and cloud-managed edge computing device and edge apps, supporting verticals such as connected vehicles, autonomous driving and retail payments. The resulting innovation will be the first international out of box cellular connectivity solution offering the soft SIM function, as well as edge analytics in a secure virtualized application environment with cloud app store and intelligence.
John Jiang, President of Globetouch Inc., commented: “Joining forces with Virtuosys is a huge step forward for us as we globally expand our GConnect/GControl connectivity and IoT management platform with GFusion in deep-learning-based analytics and data processing. But more importantly, our new partnership is a win-win for a mobile industry searching for more innovative cloud-based edge analytics solutions for global connectivity and IoT.”
Alan Jones, CEO of Virtuosys, agreed: “Our mission is to distribute the power of the cloud to the edge in the most seamless and economical way for enterprises. By deploying Virtuosys’ next generation edge application platform with Globetouch global connectivity and Edge analytics, we add a backhaul option and capabilities to our platform that make it even easier to deploy. This partnership well positions both Globetouch and Virtuosys in secure distributed edge computing and simultaneous multiple-application management for the autonomous driving and IoT markets.”
Globetouch is exhibiting at MWC Shanghai, located at booth W4C33.
