AlertMedia Recognized As One of Ten IOT Start-ups To Watch

By | Company

We’re proud to announce that AlertMedia was recently named as one of the top 10 Internet-of-Things (IoT) start-ups to watch by Network World. The term “Internet-of-Things” refers to the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.

Communication is the glue that ties all of the “things” together in the Internet-of-Things, so we have a very unique role to play. Many start-ups in this category might help these “things” communicate with each other, but AlertMedia takes the next step to help these things communicate with decision-makers and response teams.
