Tokyo — September 1, 2023 — Asteria Corporation (Japan listed, Security Code: 3853) announced today that it has been certified as a technology partner of the “Soracom Partner Space” (hereinafter “SPS”) program by Soracom, Inc.
As digitization and demand for DX is accelerating in a wide range of industries, different types of data collected by sensors and other devices are being actively used. Especially, expertise in sensors, devices, communications, security and cloud is becoming increasingly vital to IoT system construction. As such, Soracom launched in 2015 the “SPS” partner program to build an IoT ecosystem and solve users’ issues. SPS has grown into an IoT ecosystem with over 950 companies in Japan.
Asteria’s Gravio was released in 2017 as an AI-equipped IoT integration platform. The latest version, launched in July 2023, enables integration with the cloud, Gravio Hub, which services as the core of IoT data collection and control, and supports SIM. As Gravio’s strength — no-code — eliminates the need for coding for collecting data from sensors and controlling devices, the product has been adopted by companies and organizations in a wide range of industries, and thus was certified as an “SPS Technology Partner.”
The recognition has led to the registration of Gravio as a Soracom-certified solution, allowing for the integration of each other’s platform. By inserting Soracom IoT SIM* into Gravio Hub, sensor data collected by Gravio can be integrated with Soracom’s various services without coding. This facilitates data collection and utilization at worksites via IoT and AI. Moreover, Gravio is deployable in areas without WiFi due to its ability to connect to the internet through cellular networks and other means, enabling advanced data collection and utilization essential to the smartification of increasingly diverse business scenes.
Asteria will further accelerate the use of data in all kinds of places and contribute to the automation and remote operations of business processes so that user companies can further leverage their data assets.
* Soracom IoT SIM provides wide coverage through multi-carrier support, available globally including in Japan.
