The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting how we live and work–encompassing everything from cell phones, to coffee makers, washing machines, and even wearable devices. The technology, on a broader scale, can be applied to things like transportation networks and smart cities that can help reduce waste and improve efficiencies. Founded in 2003, Wyless is a company that offers complete end-to-end solutions that simplify the development and deployment of IoT and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications across the globe. With a smarter approach to the challenges of M2M, Wyless understands that every application has its own unique requirements and that customers need access to a wide range of highly specialized services backed up by dedicated support. “Whether customers have a parking meter solution or a managed Wi-Fi solution, we’re positioned to enable it,” says Charles Kriete, CRO, Wyless.

The company’s flagship solution, Porthos is the leading M2M management software, which provides complete control over customers’ M2M solutions.
