AWS Summit in Cape Town to showcase IoT and hyperscale cloud investments

CloudEventsRegional NewsSouth AfricaTop Stories

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cape Town summit will showcase the rewards that innovation and investment in IoT, hyperscale cloud and associated industry products are delivering.

The Summit will take place on July 11 at the International Convention Centre in Cape Town, and will feature global IoT cellular connectivity specialists Eseye. Supported by MTN, and joined by SolarNow, Eseye will present as part of the ‘Modernising your Business’ stream, providing insights into the latest, simplest way IoT devices can be deployed onto AWS.

Eseye’s team, led by co-founder Paul Marshall, will be joined on stage at the summit by Herman Dijkslag, SolarNow’s Product Development Manager, to demonstrate how a new and advanced use of cellular for AWS is disrupting IoT’s traditional deployment models. Together, the team will demonstrate one of the most advanced and simplified cellular IoT use cases in the field today.

Jeremy Potgieter, Regional Head: SADC, Eseye said: “If you are considering an IoT project this is your opportunity to see a real-life example of Eseye’s single global AnyNet Secure SIM for AWS in action. And how, with SolarNow, IoT is becoming easier and driving better insights into customer device usage, prolonging device lifecycle and improving business performance.”

During the SolarNow session, Paul Marshall will launch Eseye’s newest product, the AnyNet IRIS, a gateway App for AWS services to go live on August 1. The new App is an administration tool that is designed to enhance the user experience and work with the upgraded AnyNet Secure for AWS IoT global cellular solution.

“AnyNet IRIS transforms the way our AWS Marketplace integration installs, from a run once script to a clear graphical interface that enables customers to select the features they want and to add services as they are needed or become available,” said David Thompson, Eseye’s Marketing Director.

“AnyNet IRIS also provides a new level of user experience with a view of connectivity performance without having to right a line of code.”

Thompson added that the AnyNet IRIS App has a new range of features for AWS customers that are accessed directly on their AWS Marketplace account.

“These include a simplified launch process, enhanced visibility of the IoT estate through an action audit log and customer App update notifications,” he said.

The launch is version one of the App, with a version two planned for later in the year, with more features added.

In a joint IoT announcement at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, MTN and Eseye, aligned with the AnyNet Federation in support of significant global growth of cellular services onto AWS Cloud.

“We are partnering with MTN and look forward to collaborating at the Summit and offering advice to customers who want to learn how to deliver African regional and global IoT deployments onto AWS cloud services,” added Potgieter.
