Kii, a platform company enabling mobility and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for global customers, has announced that Cisco Investments (Cisco’s corporate venture capital arm) is making an investment in Kii.
Kii’s global platform enables device manufacturers and Internet of Everything (IoE) solution providers to create connected solutions with new data sources generated from IoT to be integrated into cloud service and analytics-driven application models in a wide range of IoE use cases.
WiFi/mobility data sources stream through the Kii Cloud, and can feed the Cisco mobile experience platform. With those additional data sources, Kii and Cisco can deliver complete data-rich experiences to customers, and create next generation digital experiences and offers over mobility.
“We are thrilled to have Cisco Investments sign on as an investor,” said Masanari Arai, CEO of Kii. “Cisco’s investment will help enable us to introduce our platform and various IoE solutions throughout the world and help us execute on the larger IoE vision.”
