Terepac joins Cisco’s IoT technology hub


Waterloo ON-based Terepac Corp. joined the world’s leading innovators at the new Cisco Internet of Everything (IoE) Innovation Centre in Toronto yesterday.

Terepac was one of a select group of innovators chosen to showcase Canadian leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT). Visitors to the Cisco IoE Innovation Centre were given the opportunity to interact with Terepac technology and see how the firm is giving voice to the world.

Cisco Innovation Centres around the world accelerate opportunities, deepen relationships and foster innovation, according to Terepac CEO Ric Asselstine.

Each location serves as a hub to:

* Showcase what is possible with the Internet of Things (IoT);

* Build solutions with partners and startups, and engage in rapid prototyping;

* Invest and partner with startups, accelerators, and universities.

“Cisco’s thought leadership in IoT combined with this world-class facility makes this venue an ideal place to display our ONE Machine and ONE Water solutions,” says Asselstine. “City managers, investors and visionaries can see how giving voice to the world can make cities and workplaces safer, smarter and more efficient. It really is a glimpse into the near-future of everything.”

“Cisco is excited to feature Terepac’s One solutions in our Innovation Centre,” adds William MacGowan of Cisco’s industry transformation team “The One IoT platform exemplifies the goals of our Innovation Centre with show-stopping smart city and manufacturing solutions that integrate with Cisco’s vision for the IoT with wireless and power-over-ethernet (PoE) capabilities.”

What’s on display

Visitors, investors and city managers can interact with Terepac’s One IoT Plaform, a secure combination of edge of network sensing device and cloud-based software, which is already in market and changing the way smart cities, manufacturers and oil and gas industries gather, analyze and capitalize on real-time data through the Internet of Things.

ONE Water is a municipal water monitoring system that uses a unique fire hydrant insert that can be retrofitted into new and existing infrastructure in order to remotely provide municipalities with breakthrough and optimizing insights into the city’s water system.

One Machine is a simple-to-deploy, magnetically-attached wireless sensing solution. Once applied to any machine, it allows facilities management to remotely monitor capital equipment. This can result in significant cost savings and improved safety.
