Working with the best to create the future.
Intwine Connect's successes are a direct result of its ability to partner effectively.
The Case Western Reserve - Intwine Connect partnership agreement advances research and development directed by Dr. Ken Loparo, Nord Professor and chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the university.
The focus of the EECS Department is on smart and connected devices and systems. This is a natural fit with Intwine Connect’s technology and business, which helps integrate Loparo's R&D with it's own technology to create real-world commercially applicable solutions. Loparo and his research team are involved in wide-ranging research that integrates streaming sensor data with custom analytics to support autonomous control and decision-support systems with applications to energy, healthcare, and manufacturing/production.
The partnership is about both technology and talent. Intwine and its technology platform have been spun into the university, as Intwine brings its own patents, technology, and expertise to the relationship. Collaborative developments with research and the technology-transfer office will be spun out. Intwine and Case Western are working together to prove and optimize IoT technology while functionally growing a young team of top engineering and technical sales talent.
EPRI and Intwine Connect have been working together since 2014 on research and development relating to the generation, delivery and use of electricity for the benefit of the public. EPRI is an independent, nonprofit organization that brings together scientists and engineers as well as experts from academia and the industry to help address challenges in electricity. They do this by establishing projects that integrate technology providers, such as Intwine, with utilities.
EPRI looks at Intwine as a top tier communications and controls expert. Intwine has done extensive work with EPRI connecting to end devices for utilities, specifically with CTA-2045. With Intwine's help, EPRI has published numerous technical papers regarding intelligent building management, demand response, interface interoperability, and field demonstration projects.
PNNL is a lab run by the U.S. Department of Energy and has been working with Intwine since 2011 on the architecture, development, and testing behind VOLTTRON, an open, flexible, modular software for interacting with physical devices. Intwine continues to provide guidance as a communications expert (Zigbee, Wi-Fi, OpenADR, thread, etc.), software and hardware development, and testing equipment for the VOLTTRON project
Intwine's patented Connected Gateway is the PNNL preferred hardware choice to run the VOLTTRON software due to its robust capabilities and industrial features. PNNL and Intwine are currently using the platform for advanced building control.
Foxconn is Intwine's contract manufacturer and design partner. Intwine and Foxconn have collaborated on the design and development of cutting edge IoT technologies, including Intwine's patented Connected Gateway.
Foxconn is the largest contract electronics manufacturer in the world with approximately 1.3 million employees. As such, Foxconn provides Intwine with best-in-class manufacturing and supply chain capabilities to support applications in any industry.
Arrow is Intwine's exclusive and global distribution partner.
Victory Sales is Intwine's sales force in the North Central U.S.
Intwine works with all the major carriers and MVNOs for cellular connectivity to ensure coverage wherever it is needed. Intwine has partnerships with major cellular providers that allow it to provide all inclusive cellular management to its customers including remote management capabilities and data plans.
