The Program

The IoT Community of the ng Connect Program brings innovative companies together to collaborate on prototypes, business cases, and paths to commercial offerings that will unleash the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). Our member companies develop new products, solutions, and services faster, and with a higher profile to customers.

How it works

Rich collaboration and ecosystem support

Our community of organizations and individuals collaborate to develop pioneering IoT infrastructure, devices, applications, and content.

The IoT Community empowers this collaboration with physical and virtual innovation spaces, an experienced technical team that supports prototype development and integration, as well as leading-edge tools. This ecosystem helps members create, evaluate and validate concepts to deliver market-ready products, solutions, and services today that are ready for tomorrow.
