Brightstar and Kii Announce Open ‘Space’ Ecosystem to Provide a Bigger, Better, Faster Way to Bring IoT Mobile Products to Market

Brightstar and Kii announced a partnership to better connect the IoT market by creating a global ecosystem supporting the development and distribution of IoT products into retail and mobile operator channels. The new ecosystem, dubbed 'Space: The Infinity of Things™', is open to all IoT players from manufacturers and developers to retailers and mobile operators. Manufacturers who want to sell their IoT devices globally can leverage Brightstar’s worldwide network to establish new points of entry. Developers working with the open IoT platform will have access across all devices, operating systems, and chipsets, allowing them to create innovative new applications and services for IoT devices more quickly. For mobile operators and retailers who want to jointly source connected products, the open IoT ecosystem offers the benefits of scale to bring their products to market more quickly and opens new business opportunities. Due to a partnership between Kii and the Alibaba IoT Cloud Division in China, devices that deploy under the open IoT platform can enjoy full interoperability on the Alibaba IoT Cloud. Device manufacturers can give their IoT devices global cloud access through a single deployment through 'Space' to sell in China and the rest of the world. Through the open ecosystem, Brightstar is currently working with prominent operators and retailers such as SoftBank Mobile, LG U+ and Shinsegae. Additionally, Brightstar and Kii are working with information and communications technology distributors such as SBCK Corp. and SoftBank Commerce & Service Corp. Brightstar and Kii will be also working with international manufacturers such as Toshiba, YanKon, ThroughTek, Liquid Image, iFit®, Rooti, Fineck, Toymail, Haltian, Mozbii, Leeo, Astak and Kenzenwear to bring products to market more efficiently for consumers.
