Tego’s ‘smart’ solution advances the Industrial Internet of Things
Online PR News – 17-March-2015 – Waltham, MA – Tego, Inc., a leading provider of Smart Asset Solutions has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium. The Industrial Internet Consortium is a global not-for-profit organization of technology innovators, researchers, universities and governments working to accelerate growth of the Industrial Internet.
The ability to directly interconnect smart, industrial assets is ushering in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As a pioneer in rugged UHF high-memory RFID chips, tags and software, and the leading supplier of industry-compliant solutions for tagging flyable parts, Tego is at the forefront of creating the type of smart assets needed to fully realize the IIoT across a range of industries. Tagging assets with rugged, high-memory RFID tags means that critical safety, supply chain and business information can be securely stored on the asset itself, dynamically changing critical business processes.
“In order for the Industrial Internet of Things to grow and thrive, we need to ensure that those ‘things’ can communicate, collaborate and share data efficiently and securely,” said Timothy Butler, President and CEO of Tego, Inc. “Tego's RFID technology is the last mile to connecting things in the Internet of Things, delivering significant value in a broad range of industrial and commercial applications.”
“Tego’s active participation in the Industrial Internet Consortium is a valuable enhancement to our efforts to accelerate the convergence of machines and intelligent data,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium. “Smart assets integrated into the Industrial Internet have the capability to enable improved efficiency, lower operating costs and increased reliability.”
