How We Enable Google Cloud Platform Customers

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides a range of highly scalable managed cloud services, including IoT services such as Google IoT Core. The main challenge in leveraging these services is the “first mile” device support -- how to reliably, securely, and scalably enable data communication and ingestion into GCP with IoT devices as a prerequisite to delivering large-scale IoT business applications.

The Electric Imp Edge-to-Enterprise IoT platform solves that “first mile” device support challenge with a fully integrated and managed connectivity solution. Our unique architecture and flexible integration with the GCP virtually eliminates the complexities of deploying, commissioning, securing, and managing IoT devices at scale. GCP customers can focus on deriving business value from their device data with Google’s extensive cloud services, instead of worrying about overcoming the constantly-changing challenges of first mile device support.
