Fujitsu today announced that it has developed proprietary communications technology that enables a “safe cloud connection to all kinds of equipment.”
Spanning different network environments, companies will be able to remotely collect data on their different equipment in disparate locations. Fujitsu will begin sales in Japan of a service utilizing this technology -- called the FUJITSU Managed Infrastructure Service FENICS II M2M Service -- in December.
”Compared to constructing an M2M system entirely comprised of mobile line connections, for example, this service, by combining mobile lines and the use of the customer's existing intranet, can reduce the total cost of an M2M system by 90%, including start-up costs and running costs,” the company said in a release. “With (it), customers no longer need the expensive dedicated systems that required development work for each type of network used by their equipment."
