Company Summary

Networking for mobile app developers is constantly being re-invented, and no open communication fabric exists that connects all the devices within the Internet of Things ecosystem. Ekata Systems is addressing the communication inefficiency and communication gap between mobile devices and the machines that surround us in the physical world by building a development platform/back-end service that provides "connectivity-as-a-service" for IoT.
