Axzon Inc. and Nordic ID enable Cloud-Ready Edge device for Industrial IoT applications

Axzon Inc., in a joint effort with Nordic ID, announces a partnership to enable Nordic ID smart readers with Axzon’s ReaderService, a software stack to help convert sensor data to business insights.

Austin, TX – February 11, 2019 – Axzon, the world leader in the passive sensor market, has joined forces with Nordic ID, a Finnish technology company, known for innovative real-time solutions and world-class RFID devices, to bring an edge-to-edge IoT solution to complete the vision of “connecting the unconnected”.

Since its inception in 2006, Axzon Inc. has established its stronghold in the smart passive sensor market and has moved to enable edge devices which hold fully processed sensor data for better business insights. Consistent with its long-standing vision of “‘connecting the unconnected’, Axzon’s ReaderServiceTM software stack, along with Nordic ID’s smart reader family, deliver a complete industrial IoT (IIoT) solution to push sensor data to the local network edge.

Nordic ID’s smart readers were a natural choice for Axzon since the underlying hardware and software features complement Axzon’s sensors and software. to deliver a cloud-ready sensing solution for IIoT applications.

The combined solution provides customers with a robust and convenient means of aggregating data from smart passive sensors into and delivering it to the edge of the network. Axzon’s software solution, complete with a light-weight database and graphical user interface, offers a set of graphical interface runs as a microservice on the Nordic ID smart edge device., enabling customers to rapidly migrate from pilot to production using the same reader unit, thus reducing the time-to-market.

As Axzon’s sensor and software offerings scale to support more functionalities and sensing capabilities, these cloud-ready edge readers are poised to play a critical role in scalability, serving industries ranging from manufacturing to logistics for cold-chain perishables and bio-pharma.

“With Nordic ID’s world class smart readers, our ReaderService and sensor portfolio, we are now introducing a new level of connectivity and visibility in the IoT market. Our turn-key, edge-to-edge sensing solution enables the twin digital of any object with the related meta data to reside on the virtual edge to serve business needs”, says Shahriar Rokhsaz, CEO of Axzon.
