IoT Partnership Program Targets Advanced Connectivity
Blue Pillar, an Internet of Things (IoT) network solutions provider for facility-based data and control systems, has announced the launch of its Building Blocks Partnership Program (“BBPP”) with over 30 new members. The breadth and size of the partnership program makes it one of the largest IoT partnership programs in the market. Blue Pillar’s partners offer market leading IoT technology, system enablement, deployment, consulting, and value-added applications and services, which complement Blue Pillar’s ability to build and operate best-in-class, facility-based IoT networks via their award-winning Aurora® connectivity and control platform. The combined, fully integrated end-to-end solutions created by these partnerships will provide Commercial and Industrial (“C&I”) facility operators with lower cost IoT networking options and unprecedented flexibility in how their facility information can be leveraged to make them more efficient, resilient, and sustainable.
“Blue Pillar believes that it will take an ecosystem of companies fueled by open collaboration to accelerate the adoption of new energy services and applications,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “Traditional connectivity and control networks in the energy space have been proprietary, application-specific networks installed to support a particular vendor application or equipment type leaving facility operators with siloed data streams and limited choice amongst vendors. The BBPP program is the first partnership program which showcases how IoT networks can be completely independent from the equipment they connect, the sensors they use, and who installs them, while also being open and interoperable with value-added service provider or application providers.”
The BBPP is structured into two partnership categories: System Enablement and Solution Enablement. System Enablement partners are comprised of technology, installation, and communication services providers who are focused on the cost-effective building of facility-based IoT networks, while Solution Enablement partners are comprised of value-added services and application providers who leverage these networks to create tangible benefits for C&I customers. These value-added solution providers cover the spectrum of energy management, demand response, distributed energy resource management (DER), microgrids, energy efficiency, and centralized facility management.
