The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting positively on the lives of millions around the world – possibly none more so than those in Africa. It is for this reason SolarNow and we here at Eseye have announced a new IoT partnership, powered by AWS, to provide connected solar energy to communities in East Africa.
Social business SolarNow provides solar-powered equipment, appliances and financing services to remote or off-grid locations in the region. The system uses Eseye’s global AnyNet Secure SIM to provide secure cellular connectivity and delivers data onto the AWS Cloud; it will be demoed at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas from 27th November. The partnership has enabled SolarNow to move from a non-connected to a connected product offering and to take full advantage of the benefits of IoT, with better system oversight, enhanced security, remote device management options and improved client communication.
