Le 6 août, l’Irlandais Taoglas, fournisseur de solutions RF et d’antennes IoT, a annoncé l’acquisition de son compatriote Firmwave, une société de conception et d’ingénierie de produits IoT.

Taoglas, a provider of IoT antenna and RF solutions, announced the acquisition of Firmwave, an IoT product design, and engineering company, to deliver Next-Generation IoT to IoT applications such as healthcare, energy and utilities, supply chain and logistics, transportation, agriculture, and construction. Both companies headquartered in Ireland.

Today many companies struggle with design engineering for complex Next-Generation IoT applications because they require a high level of integration. Many companies want to take advantage of advances in imaging like facial recognition; centimeter-level positioning (cm versus meter accuracy); audio like speech recognition; and AI for motion sensing and analysis. Advancements in these four areas promise to open a world of Next-Generation IoT applications.

« Customers have long been asking Taoglas for more engineering support for their IoT solution. They now want a one-stop-shop for IoT engineering services, » said Ronan Quinlan, Co-CEO and Co-founder of Taoglas. « They don’t want to deal with multiple engineering teams, as they do today, to create each component of Next-Generation IoT solutions. We are seeing increasingly complex IoT projects that are being delayed to market by this fundamental problem. »

In the past two years, Taoglas has collaborated with Firmwave on Taoglas Shift, an artificial intelligence (AI) beam-steering antenna system for 5G networks. There has also been much collaboration on other complex custom IoT projects such as medical device maker HealthBeacon. Now Taoglas is combining its unique antenna and RF solutions with extra engineering services to help clients in IoT differentiate their product with these new technologies, and dramatically speed up their time to market.

Taoglas is a provider of Next-Generation IoT solutions, combining the latest in high-performance RF antenna with advanced positioning, imaging, audio and artificial intelligence technologies for companies with IoT challenges. With 10 world-class design, support and test centers in Ireland, Germany, Poland, Taiwan, China, and the US, in-house manufacturing in Taiwan and the US, and a dynamic online ordering system, Taoglas helps companies deliver complex IoT solutions to market quickly and cost-effectively.
