TOTO | January 20, 2023
The largest plumbing company in the world, TOTO, has announced that it will work with MachineQ, a Comcast Company, to make it easier to install its Internet of Things (IoT) smart bathroom products in high-traffic public restrooms across the U.S. TOTO's partnership with MachineQ will enable the company to expand the installation of its innovative smart restroom products, such as automatic hand-dryers and soap dispensers, into areas that were previously difficult to access due to a lack of resources.
The partnership will allow TOTO's smart restroom products to better solve real-world business issues for facility managers, such as reducing audits, decreasing downtime, increasing employee efficiency, and increasing consumer satisfaction with their public restroom experience. Through this collaboration, TOTO and MachineQ will be able to increase the number of smart restroom product installations in public restrooms across the United States.
Hidemi Ishikawa, CEO of TOTO USA, said, "Utilizing MachineQ's fully integrated device-to-cloud platform enables TOTO to further increase the value our IoT smart restroom products provide to facility managers." He added, "With MachineQ's LoRaWAN® network, which interoperates easily with other networks, TOTO's IoT-enabled products easily integrate with facilities' smart restroom monitoring systems or building automation systems across the U.S." (Source – CISION PR Newswire)
The partnership will also let TOTO connect its Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled products to intelligent restroom monitoring systems in buildings or build automation systems across the U.S. This will let facility managers keep an eye on and manage restrooms in real time. This will give them the ability to plan ahead for problems, deal with them quickly and effectively, and keep a high level of cleanliness all the time.
MachineQ, a Comcast company, makes it easy for businesses to build, connect, and scale long-range, low-power IoT solutions. Our fully integrated network connectivity platform, which is based on LoRaWAN® technology, gives customers a single source for service, support, technology, and development, as well as better security and a lower total cost of ownership. Our partnerships with leading IoT solution providers help us solve a wide range of business problems in key industries like real estate, food service, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, utilities, government, and agriculture.

emnify | March 02, 2023
emnify, a leading cloud-native IoT cellular connectivity enabler, has recently announced a new technological and strategic partnership with Lynk, a renowned satellite IoT connectivity provider. The collaboration puts emnify at the forefront of an emerging IoT connectivity revolution, with satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems combining into a unified ‘network of networks’ to achieve more accessible, resilient, and flexible connectivity solutions.
Through this collaboration, emnify will offer Lynk's ingenious ‘cell towers in space’ to its customers. To ensure consistent and dependable IoT connectivity, emnify customers can now connect their existing LTE or GSM cellular radio device to Lynk's satellite-based cell towers. The solution will be supported by Lynk's global technology and managed through emnify's proprietary web portal and APIs.
Lynk's satellite portfolio will broaden emnify's global coverage outside of terrestrial mobile networks and into international maritime waters with the deployment of three commercial low-Earth-orbit satellites by the end of 2023.
VP of Network Access at emnify, Alexander Schebler, says: "Use cases such as environmental monitoring, fish farming, smart metering, and asset tracking in offshore locations and international waters do not require frequent data transfer. However, the ability to establish connectivity without relying on mobile network reception is crucial for collecting meter readings, sensor values, or GPS locations of assets." He added, "This partnership marks the future of IoT connectivity, where satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems work seamlessly together to provide more resilient, accessible, and flexible connectivity solutions. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this IoT connectivity revolution and are eager to empower our customers to realize the full value of their device fleets through their existing Emnify Cloud infrastructure."
