The EnCo CloudChannel has been available to users since the launch of the EnCo platform. Its goal has always been to help connect various assets together from our platform as well as to the outside world without the complication or the programming skills required to master a tool like an ESB.
At the very start, CloudChannel was especially developed to support collecting data sent by LoRa devices, and evolved over time to include more inbound (HTTP and MQTT) as well as outbound capabilities (HTTP, MQTT, SMS, MS Azure Event Hub, WayLay, AllThingsTalk Maker, …). In parallel, we also gave users the ability to extend from monoChannel to multiChannels definitions, a capability especially useful when different routing decisions were to be applied to source events.
As Proximus invested in Co.Station, we wanted to add a new concrete and practical area of collaboration to the story. Co.Station’s mission on accelerating Scale-Ups and EnCo’s focus on innovation and disruptive projects is the obvious cornerstone of our collaboration.
The EnCo AR Viewer is an Android App that allows you to display values like temperature, shocks or level in Augmented Reality. It’s the perfect way to demonstrate the power API’s in an Internet of Things context. At EnCo, we already used it to develop inspiring demos in health, logistic or smart building contexts. Now it’s EnCo users’ turn to use it the way they want !
Co.Station Belgium came to an agreement with Sambrinvest to open a new innovation village in the city of Charleroi. After Gent and Bruxelles, this will be the third Co.Station center to open in Belgium. Next to the new Digital Attraxion incubator, Sambrinvest saw a unique opportunity to consolidate the growth strategy for the digital innovation entrepreneurship in Wallonia.
Is an API a product like any other? How are we managing API’s at Proximus EnCo? Are our consumers also our customers? How are we interacting with developers? Here is a paper from Pierre d’Ollone, product manager working with EnCo on the SMS API integration.
The LoRa Welcome Plan on EnCo is now available! Announced at our first #EnCoAPIhour, it consists of a freemium plan allowing our users to prototype an IoT solution using LoRaWAN connectivity so they can test things out before deploying on a larger scale.
Starting in September every first Tuesday of the month, EnCo will organize a Networking event in Digityser. For the first API hour, Jan Manssens director of Enterprise Business Unit at Proximus will tell you where EnCo is coming from, what is the status to day and expectations for tomorrow.
