企業情報



GRIDLINK, INC. is an IT company that provides IoT cloud services from both the hardware product side and the cloud technology side. Our philosophy is, "Helping to make IoT technology more common and standardized as an infrastructure providing company that accelerates the IoT business, so that small and intermediate sized companies can enjoy the fruits of new technology."

IoT is not only about collecting sensor data, but it is a technology that can also be used to simplify remote control of various types of devices (machinery, equipment, etc.) through the Internet. Previously, services similar to IoT could be achieved by installing servers in places where operations were necessary, and using dedicated lines, IP-VPN, wide-area ethernet, and ethernet VPN, but these systems were very expensive and not feasible for small and intermediate sized companies. Today, Internet technology has matured, wireless networks have spread, and communications costs are lower. IoT makes it possible for small and intermediate sized companies to use the latest technology at a low cost, so that it is a chance in a lifetime for those companies.

However, in order to develop an IoT system, knowledge about hardware, software, and the Internet are all necessary. Japan has very few engineers who can understand both hardware and software totally and combine them into a system, and the truth is that there are only a limited number of companies that can make IoT systems internally.

GRIDLINK is trying to expand the IoT business by making IoT technology a general purpose service with its M2MSTREAM and we provide not only to user companies, but also to their partner software vendors, manufacturers, telecommunications businesses, under the concept of, "providing integrated hardware and cloud services." M2MSTREAM is IoT infrastructure that is not limited to just collecting sensor data, but we also provides remote control functions for devices as a standard feature. It is a cloud service that is made up of “device controllers” that connect to various devices and sensors, “cloud servers” that control data distribution, and “AP servers” that construct applications based on the system. By using this service, even companies that do not have IoT technology can take part in the IoT business without huge cost outlays. User companies can use M2MSTREAM and avoid using their limited business resources on constructing and maintaining IoT infrastructure, and instead concentrate on making original applications, and designing, developing, and operating services.

In addition, GRIDLINK plans to provide an environment to develop applications using artificial intelligence (AI) on the AP servers, so that user companies can provide even more advanced services.

GRIDLINK is also advancing a business tie-up with a technological consulting company to provide consulting services to companies that are interested in IoT, but do not know how to use IoT technology for their own businesses, so that they have yet to enter the IoT business. These companies will be provided with support to prepare the appropriate environments and develop their business.
