Cox Communications has selected Leverege's Internet of Things (IoT) platform as a component for Cox' recently launched Cox2M Connected Asset Services business line. Leverege will license its IoT technology platform and provide system integration services to Cox across all target verticals including transportation, fleet management, smart cities, energy, agriculture, real estate and retail.

Cox2M solutions are designed to provide customers with the ability to monitor and track commercial assets, enabling them to connect nearly anything, anywhere: inventory, equipment or infrastructure, everything from cars to power lines. Customers can monitor the location, condition, and status of their assets and receive real-time notifications of any issues.

"After an extensive survey of the market, we chose Leverege as our IoT platform partner and system integrator for numerous reasons including modularity and customization of the technology, advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities, rapid prototyping tools that greatly accelerate the development of end-to-end IoT solutions, and the world-class team that stands behind the products," said Josh Sommer, executive director of new growth strategy for Cox Communications.

Cox Automotive is an early adopter of Cox2M Connected Asset Services. Manheim is using a custom Cox2M application that delivers real-time tracking of vehicles across auction lots. The solution was piloted last year and will now be implemented across the United States and Canada to connect more than 500,000 vehicles.

"The Leverege platform has been built from the ground up to deliver superior performance, insights, and security for the most demanding IoT applications in the enterprise space," said Eric Conn, CEO and co-founder of Leverege. "We are very excited to partner with an industry leader like Cox and together deliver turnkey solutions at disruptive price points for business and public-sector customers."
