LONDON, UK --- Chirp's data-over-sound technology is being used by Unified Inbox to create innovative smart home, smart enterprise, and smart city intelligent IoT messaging solutions that will make provisioning of devices and sensors more secure, faster to onboard, and easier to use. Chirp and Unified Inbox Pte. Ltd. (UIB) collaboration includes the integration and testing of UIB's UnificationEngine intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) messaging platform with Chirp's data-over-audio technology.
The partnership will allow fast, easy, and secure onboarding of residential, commercial, and government IoT devices. A prerequisite for mainstream user adoption of IoT, easy onboarding will determine which equipment, electronics, and device manufacturers are able to successfully capture the growing, multi-trillion-dollar IoT market.
Chirp's technology encodes any kind of data into a unique audio stream. Any device with a speaker can transmit a Chirp, and most devices with a microphone can decode it, making it ideal for machine to machine (M2M) communications.
UIB provides natural language communications (NLP) for IoT devices. People can communicate with their devices through the communications channels they already use, simplifying the onboarding process. The Chirp + UnificationEngine integration layer can be easily adapted and developed for smart home, smart enterprise, and smart city use cases across verticals including: energy, public transit, healthcare, waste/water management, home appliances, and consumer electronics.
