PLAT.ONE, the first Enterprise-Grade Application platform for IoT and M2M, announced today that it has been selected by Cisco to join the Cisco® Entrepreneurs in Residence (Cisco EIR) program. Cisco EIR is a startup innovation program that identifies and supports emerging companies focused on solving critical enterprise IT problems strategic to Cisco’s customers. Program elements include financial support and potential strategic funding, co-working space, mentoring from Cisco executives, and potential opportunities to work with Cisco engineering and product groups as well as Cisco channel partners and customers.

Since 2011, PLAT.ONE has been deployed by three major telecoms and over 25 industrial customers powering over 200,000 connected industrial devices. It is the platform of choice for major Telecoms, System Integrators and global industrial equipment companies who want to rapidly develop and deploy mission-critical, connected solutions ranging from smart products and transportation to smart cities and manufacturing.

PLAT.ONE was one of the first to deliver a fog-computing application architecture, was an early working member of the IoT World Forum Reference Model, and is one of ten companies including IBM and Intel that have committed to develop this model going forward. Flavio Bonomi, formerly active at Cisco and currently an advisor to PLAT.ONE said, “PLAT.ONE is one of the earliest and best examples of such distributed IoT platforms in action providing the framework for edge-based analytics, autonomous control and distributed computing.”

“We’re honored to be chosen by Cisco to the Cisco EIR program,” said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE. “There is no company with more thought-leadership in the Internet of Everything, or that understands the enterprise-grade requirements of customers, than Cisco. We look forward to partnering with them to power the Internet of Everything.”
