Beam joins IMC to Provide Mobile IoT Communication for Public Safety Applications and More
- November 16, 2020
London (16 November 2020): A custom solution provider offering real-time Mobile IoT Communication that converts IoT data (including live video and GPS) into sub-second latency, mobile messages and relevant content, has joined the trade association IoT M2M Council (IMC) to reach technology buyers in various public safety and asset-tracking sectors, among others. The company – Beam – based in Silicon Valley and London is looking for participation in the IMC to strengthen its position in the first-responder community and expand its reach into corollary markets that are dependent on mission-critical communication for time-sensitive decision-making. For its part, the IMC is the world’s largest community of IoT buyers, with 25,000 qualified enterprise users and product makers as rank-and-file Adopter Members, covering 27 different vertical markets
“We look to the IMC to provide us with a thought leadership platform for our unique brand of Communications-as-a-Service (CaaS),” says Mehrdad Negahban, Beam’s Founder and CEO, who will sit on IMC’s Board of Governors. “At the same time, we hope to help expand the IMC’s influence in public safety markets, which are a hotbed for new IoT applications.” The company is already deployed by the Honolulu Police Department (in the US State of Hawaii) to enhance mobile communication and situational awareness. Beam has also found applications in consumer ride-sharing and supply chain management.
The IMC supports its board/sustaining companies with exclusive access to its Adopter Membership for purposes of thought leadership, lead generation, promotion and research. Most recently, the association organized a full-scale, multi-day, online conference that attracted over 1,000 registrants, of whom over 70% identified as buyers of IoT technology. “We look at the IMC as a unique opportunity to reach out directly to the technology buyers in its qualified membership. Beyond that, we look for the group to provide us with entrée to important vertical markets that would be difficult to reach as an individual company,” says Negahban.
