We are proud to announce that ioBridge has been issued US Patent 8,271,629, “Module-based Device Interaction System”. The patent covers core technology developed by ioBridge to make it easy to Internet-enable devices or services. This represents a lot of research and development which started back in 2000 when Jason and I began working together on how to build systems based on devices distributed around the Internet and Wide Area Networks. We also collaborated with Il Park who is an expert in neural networks and cryptography. From the start, we baked in a security model and encryption techniques on the same level as banking systems. We know this is an important innovation for the emerging Internet of Things and often overlooked by the swarm of newcomers and rehashers. Patent 8,271,629 applies to the technology suite provided by ioBridge, including the IO-204 Web Gateway Module, associated Web services, and the RealTime.io cloud infrastructure for Iota-enabled devices and services.
“This patent is an important example of how we are innovating and creating value for our customers and partners,” said Dr. Robert Mawrey, CEO of ioBridge, Inc. “Our technology opens up a whole world of possibilities. Interactive toys, healthcare devices, and traditional M2M applications are taking advantage of low-cost connectivity and cloud services. This is a very exciting time for ioBridge and its partners.”
