Industrial networking manufacturer changes company name, adds global partner ecosystem

From Control Engineering

“B&B Electronics has changed its company name to B+B SmartWorx to reflect a continued investment in technologies used for the Internet of Things (IoT). The company plans to continue to develop what it calls mission-critical network connectivity technology, with the Connected Intelligence Global Partner Ecosystem for remote or demanding environments for the IoT landscape.”

B+B SmartWorx also invested in software engineering at all of our global locations, while bringing in a new team in Galway, Ireland.

“Mike Fahrion, director of IoT and edge intelligence product development at B+B SmartWorx, explained that B+B created the ecosystem to combine complementary partners under a virtual roof to facilitate IoT applications. From assets to analytics starting at the network edge, the ecosystem is designed to create intelligent networks that can collect, manage, and analyze the data generated by billions of sensors, he suggested. This, in turn, transforms that data into actionable intelligence that allows companies make predictions and prescribe actions to cut costs, increase productivity, or increase revenue, the company said.”
