Embever – Helping to Build, Manage and Deploy Your Own IoT Project, Without Complexity


Internet of Things (IoT) generates a huge amount of data or big data. Managing the flow and storage of this data is a tedious task for enterprises. Cloud computing with its different models and implementation platforms help companies to manage and analyze this data, enhancing the overall efficiency and working of IoT system. Cloud computing also allows data transfer and storage through the internet or with a direct link that enables uninterrupted data transfer between devices, applications, and cloud.

Embever is one such company that offers robust IoT platform that redesigns the cloud-to-device communication from the ground up. It will power a new generation of highly innovative IoT products that can be reliably controlled and configured from the web. Its platform was built with cellular technologies like 2G, 3G or LTE in mind. But at the same time, by using slim protocols, Embever's platform handles cloud-to-device communication extremely energy efficient. IoT devices built with Embever can run for years from a single battery cell and work out of the boy without local access points.
