In Industries such as Mining, Automotive, Manufacturing, Environmental Monitoring, and Oil & Gas, MIOTY™ from BTI 1.0 Starter Kit with Azure, will be the first available software to enable a new and unique approach to production monitoring, predictive maintenance, energy management, condition monitoring, facilities management and workforce safety.

Access to scalable and cost effective wireless data communications solutions for IoT is an ongoing challenge for industrial customers, and we are thrilled that Behr Technologies is including Azure services in their MIOTY™ solution,” said Carl Coken, General Manager, IoT, Microsoft. “The combination of MIOTY™ and Azure will allow organizations to process billions of messages and utilize Azure services such as streaming analytics and machine learning to make decisions and take action in real time.”

NORCAT, the only innovation center in the world with an operating mine that provides mining technology companies with the resources, infrastructure, expertise, and equipment required to develop, test, and showcase their equipment in an underground operating mine environment, supported MIOTY™ from BTI in their technology development journey.

“The NORCAT Underground Centre provides our global mining technology clients with a state-of-the-art operating mine that serves as an ‘active laboratory’ to develop, de-risk, and ultimately showcase emerging technologies that are poised to transform the global mining industry,” cites Don Duval, CEO of NORCAT. “We are very excited that BTI has opted to test their MIOTY™ technology platform at our facility – furthering our global reputation in anchoring the world’s ‘one-stop shop’ for all that is the future of mining technology in Sudbury, Canada.

The Philosophy behind IoT is that machines are better than humans at accurately and consistently capturing & communicating data. This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and proactively identify problems sooner, saving time, money and supporting business intelligence efforts.  IoT wireless communications, integrated with a cloud platform for computing and analytics is the key driver to digital transformation.
