Xaptum, Inc. | Network Communications | Chicago, IL

The internet was not designed to handle the complexity of connecting the Internet of Things. Each company creating a connected IoT device must address major security, connectivity, bandwidth, scalability, and data rights management issues. The creation and management of this infrastructure is both complex and time intensive. Additionally, the internet lacks the ability to allow for a quick change between the routing of the source(an IoT device) and destination(the computing host). According to Forbes, in 2018 there will be significantly more IoT sensors and devices than cell phones.The IoT communication market is projected to reach $20 billion per year, and analysts predict there will be a $6 billion market for infrastructure and services for software markets in this space.

Xaptum Edge Networking Fabric offers companies a secure, private network as a service. This private network simplifies the orchestration of secure and efficient date exchange between IoT devices and their related backend cloud applications. Xaptum is getting the IoT off the internet and bringing it to Xaptum, whose goal is to create “The Secure Private Internet of Things.”
