First Look: Coriant and Prodea Partner to Disrupt IoT Service Adoption Worldwide

Coriant, a global supplier of open, disruptive, and hyperscale networking solutions for service providers and web-scale Internet operators and Prodea, a leading provider of IoT managed solutions and technologies, announced ahead of the weekend that they have joined forces.

Through Coriant’s new Multi-Sided Platform Partnership Program and Prodea’s new IoT Service X-Change™ platform and ecosystem this partnership will accelerate global adoption of IoT services by simplifying go-to-market deployment across multiple vertical markets.

Prodea’s IoT Service X-Change is a platform offering turnkey solutions and a framework for rapid IoT service creation and delivery with a comprehensive ecosystem of best-of-breed offerings including guaranteed quality of service. It was developed to solve a number of real problems in the IoT industry, such as:

  • Empowering service providers to participate in the IoT value chain beyond connectivity;
  • Providing a vehicle for efficient launch of partner-powered IoT solutions; and
  • Enabling monetizable and scalable services, rather than just technology components.

Through Coriant’s Multi-Sided Platform Partnership Program, the two :companies offer a unique and innovative approach to solving the challenge of IoT service deployment and monetization by employing a value-driven business model to deliver end-to-end IoT solutions — meeting the needs of many markets including healthcare, consumer products, governments, SMEs, and others.”

“While service providers, enterprises, and other organizations have been working to bring profitable IoT services to market, the full potential of these services has not been realized. In most cases, the challenge has been less about technology and more about optimal approaches to business models, specific verticals, and ecosystem partners,” said Homayoun Razavi, Chief Customer Officer and Executive Vice President of Global Sales & Digital Marketing, Coriant. “We chose to partner with Prodea not only because of their technology innovation, but also because their IoT Service X-Change can form the basis for our Multi-Sided Platform Partnership Program’s distribution of IoT services from ecosystem partners to customers worldwide. We believe this brings together all the right go-to-market ingredients, enabling service providers and enterprises to accelerate monetization of IoT services.”

Side-Scrolling Hack ‘n Slash ‘ChronoBlade’ Up for Pre-Registration, Finally Launching Worldwide in March

It was way back at PAX Prime (now PAX West) in August of 2015 that we first caught a whiff of ChronoBlade, an upcoming hack ‘n slash RPG from developer nWay, but in reality the game has been in development for even longer than that, since at least early 2013 when it first showed up on our forums. That’s a long time! In the fall of 2016, ChronoBlade actually soft-launched in Canada with a worldwide release seemingly imminent. Except, that was more than a year ago now and no ChronoBlade! Well the wait is finally over my friends, as this week nWay announced that ChronoBlade will be launching on both iOS and Android next month and they’ve opened up a pre-registration campaign for the game.

If you hit up the official website for ChronoBlade, you can enter your email address to pre-register for the game, which will earn you a gem pack worth $ 5 when the game finally launches. Perhaps the delay between soft-launch and full release was because nWay had their hands full with a little game called Power Rangers: Legacy Wars [Free], which took the world by storm just about a year ago. Well, it turns out that was a good thing, as everything nWay learned about smooth synchronous PvP in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is being worked into ChronoBlade, which also has a heavy emphasis on competitive multiplayer. I’m VERY curious to see how it turned out after all this time, so head over to the pre-registration site and get ready for some ChronoBlade‘ing when the game launches this March.
