Option's CloudGate selected by Belgacom

Intelligent and flexible M2M gateway, CloudGate, key building block of 'Belgacom m2m factory' solution

(PresseBox) (Leuven, Belgium, ) Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the Company connecting Things to the Cloud, announces that the company's flagship product, CloudGate, has been selected by Belgacom as M2M gateway in the 'Belgacom m2m factory' solution.

Belgacom is working with Option's CloudGate as key building block of the solution.

Belgacom selected CloudGate, after a thorough testing-phase, because of the gateway's intelligence, reliability and flexibility enabling the operator's customers do deploy their M2M solutions in a fast and reliable way. Option's CloudGate solution - consisting of the CloudGate device and CloudGate Universe, the cloud based software provisioning system - provided the telecom operator with the open and modular architecture they needed for their M2M platform. The customer references of CloudGate-based projects in the US helped to further convince Belgacom that Option was the right choice.

CloudGate's open software platform and hardware and software development kits allows them to develop their own on gateway software solutions integrating existing Option developed or in-house developed hardware expansion cards.
