28 November 2017: TM Research & Development (TM R&D) recently won the Best Connectivity Solution category for its Integrated Smart Services Framework (iSSEF Prime) at the World Communication Awards 2017 held at the Supernova, Victoria Embankment Gardens, London.
iSSEF Prime is the enhanced version of TM R&D’s iSSEF smart services platform, which underpins many Internet of Things (IoT) services and applications. It is designed to be a flexible framework and as a template PaaS that can be utilised for developing future projects in the area of digital services.
It is an “easy to use portal of information for many IoT offerings,” one of the judges said. This is “definitely a solution bringing value to operators in their ambition to develop digital services,” added another, while a third noted that the platform “addresses a critical challenge for the success of IoT.”
The judging panel highlighted the example use cases given by TM R&D in its entry, including smart buildings, parking applications, smart traffic lights and street lighting. “These can only be scratching the surface of its potential,” the judges said.
