Our quest for interacting with real-time IoT deployers brought us closer to Sajith Kandiyil, founder and chairman of Bangalore-based Avenech Systems that is one of the rapidly evolving IoT deployment firms. Check out our interaction with Sajith.
Q. What is your organisation USP with respect to IoT?
A. We are specialized in developing and manufacturing intelligent edge device which are an integral part of large-scale IoT deployments. With a founding team which has a collective 60+ years of hardware and firmware hands on experience, we are able to cater to the varied needs of our customers in shortest time.
Q. What are the key technologies that you are working on?
A. At this point in time, we are very excited about the ultra low power signal processing device we are working on to use with continuous monitoring of battery powered sensors. This will enable much more intelligent edge devices and reduce the need for cloud communications which will help in scaling the applications by multi fold.
Q. Any particular elements that you are already known or famous for (even within your community or sector)?
A. As an IoT device company, we are popular with the IT/ITES companies who see IoT as the next wave of growth and find us as an IoT partner who is able to deliver custom built solutions in record TTM with the existing IPs that we hold in the domain.
Q. What niche do you intend to be a leader in?
A. We are focused on sensing applications which need extra long battery life and intelligence at the edge.
Q. What are the major features or projects that your team is currently involved in?
A. At this point, we are involved in Industry 4.0 developments which is a major leap with applications of IoT.
Q. Who all have you partnered with respect to technologies and components and why?
A. We work with many semiconductor companies including Megachips, Texas instruments, Nuvoton, Fibocom, Mediatek to meet our needs for building blocks.
Q. Whom do you target as clients?
A. We work with multiple IT/ITES companies as our IOT deployment partner.
Q. How many engineers do you currently have, and how many do you intend to hire in the next 12 months?
A. At this point, we have a little over 30 engineers and we plan to hire about 10 more heads over next 12 months.
