Ayla Networks, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform for manufacturers, announced that it has signed an official strategic cooperation agreement with China Unicom (HKEx: 0762; NYSE: CHU), one of three major providers of telecommunications services in China, to develop solutions for smart home and other IoT markets. The two companies will leverage their respective technology, products, services and channel resources to deliver IoT innovations.
The announcement was made at a conference in Guangzhou sponsored by China Unicom for the IoT industry.

As a leading telecommunications operator, China Unicom has been actively exploring and promoting industrial innovation in new markets being made possible by IoT innovations. With the vast global reach of its IoT platform, Ayla Networks is an ideal partner to work together with to deploy high-value IoT services.
“We see tremendous promise in working with China Unicom to build new IoT solutions that enhance the growing Ayla IoT platform ecosystem,” said Phillip Chang, co-founder, vice president and general manager of Greater China for Ayla Networks. “With China Unicom’s comprehensive high-quality information and communications services, we are particularly excited about developing mobile IoT solutions.”
IoT is the third wave of technology, following the PC and the Internet.
