South African innovator in Internet of Things (IoT) Technology IoT.nxt said on Thursday it was in talks with potential IT partners to distribute its IoT solutions in the US as it seeks to conquer the strongest technology centre and driver of new technologies in the world.
IoT.nxt was unable to disclose the names of the potential partners it was in advanced talks with.
While IoT.nxt has managed to expand into Europe and set up shop in the Hague, Netherlands, partnering with US firms may help the IoT company to be one of the biggest IoT firms in the world.
“Whatever the outcomes of this (talks) will influence how we create our presence in the US. Will we be creating a presence in the US? No doubt about it,” Wayne Fitzjohn, told Talk IoT in an interview on Thursday afternoon.

Who is IoT.nxt?
The failure of many IoT and Big Data platforms is their inability to – independently – completely connect all facets of an organisation.
IoT.nxt provides a highly differentiated application framework that consists of intelligent proprietary gateways (Raptor) and a back-end data orchestration platform (Commander).
The IoT.nxt framework takes care of data acquisition, normalisation, aggregation, and orchestration from the edge to enterprise level across all devices and systems, on premise or cloud.
The Raptor is a gateway controller that enables an organisation to connect all devices in the internet of things world and develop associations between the devices. It is an intelligent data gateway and by driving intelligence and analytics to the edge, we’re able to reduce dependencies on the cloud and enable critical decision making at the edge in real-time.
IoT.nxt is the framework on which an IoT strategy can be built. This allows legacy systems to be rapidly retrofitted, as well as being a platform that future proofs your business as it is scalable and allows any future best of breed technology to be seamlessly integrated into a company’s ecosystem.
IoT ecosystems are fragmented by nature.
IoT.nxt creates interoperability at a device level, filtering data at the edge and cutting costs, complexity and risk. The result is one standardised layer of data integration extending up and down the stack to achieve complete interconnectivity.
