“Imagine a world of IoT devices,” according to Energous, “that is free of batteries, free of cables, free of undue maintenance costs. What could you achieve?”

Great question.

“And what if,” this continues to posit, “these could be tracked and reported in real time? What if providers spearheaded intelligent wireless power transfer to enable IoT’s future with reduced costs, increased mobility, better data tracking and sustainability?”

With 200-plus patents and regulatory certification in some of the largest markets across a total of 108 countries, Energous specializes in the delivery of RF-based transmitters and receivers that are wirelessly powered. Whether it involves:

  • End-to-end device tracking via RF tags for management of products through the entire supply chain (and asset tracking for healthcare, retail, industrial, etc.)
  • Digital information displays that show dynamic pricing changes, notifications, alerts, or instructions
  • IoT sensors that detect, respond to, and report changes in environments like air quality control (indoors and outdoors), smart homes and buildings, agriculture and vertical farming

Energous is on it and ready to deploy solutions that support the next generation of IoT.

So what’s the news here?

Well, Energous has officially partnered with Veea, Inc.

Veea is an edge platform provider that works to simplify our paths to a smarter, more connected world – “One edge at a time,” Veea says. With an expert team that’s locked and loaded on content delivery and edge computing (as well as a broad range of Wi-Fi, 4G/5G mobile wireless, and IoT products), Veea holds 80+ patents in edge computing, virtualization, containerization, and hyper-converged networks.

That’s why this partnership sticks, according to the companies’ leaders.

“Driven by technological advancements in connectivity, data analytics, and new fields like wireless power and AI/ML, the IoT industry is experiencing a significant paradigm shift,” commented Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous, when discussing the partnership announcement. “So, as data processing becomes increasingly relevant, more and more customers are facing cost challenges due to the high quantity of data being generated, processed and stored. This marks our partnership with Veea as critical, as we believe in edge computing as the key to addressing growing challenges. We’ll make it happen.”

Specifically, this partnership homes in on empowering a few seamless integrations – Energous’ PowerBridge technology, Veea’s Edge Platform, Wiliot’s IoT Pixel tags, and more.

“Veea is thrilled to partner with Energous,” said Mark Tubinis , CCO of Veea, “to improve inventory controls and asset tracking use cases by utilizing the connectivity capabilities we, as partners, can collaborate on. This can lead to improved inventory controls, speed to market for inventory fulfillment and more, while reducing supply chain complexities for distribution centers and logistical providers. Given the explosive growth we’ve seen in manufacturing facilities, the time to innovate is now. Together, Veea and Energous are positioned as true leaders in enterprise IoT.”
