Sprint has created an online marketplace for turnkey Internet of Things applications.
The new Sprint IoT Factory provides pre-packaged connected solutions in a digital store format.
As part of the store products and services, Sprint formed strategic partnerships myDevices, the creator of drag and drop IoT devices, and The Goldie Group, which provides life cycle services in the electronics and wireless technology industries.
“From family-owned restaurants, medical companies to heavy equipment fleet operators and everything in between, the Sprint IoT Factory is giving business owners the power to easily enhance operations – using IoT technology to track assets and connect what’s most important to them,” stated Ivo Rook, senior vice president, IoT at Sprint, in the new service announcement. “Small and medium sized businesses can now attain the latest in advanced and secure technology at reasonable costs, with the ease of being able to buy a complete solution from the digital store, having it shipped quickly and installing it themselves within a matter of minutes.”
The digital store has a range of IoT product options for purchase, such as a GPS vehicle tracking and security system for $122 and $10 a month and a keyless smart home lock system for $402 and $13 a month. The services comprise continual IoT tracking.
