John Kennedy: Interview with Asavie’s Ralph Shaw: ‘We connect the internet of things’

There is a common thread running through some of the homegrown internet of things players in Ireland – they were already building the internet of things before it became a thing. And Asavie, led by Ralph Shaw, is no exception.

Earlier today (23 February 2016) we reported how at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona it emerged that Eir Business had selected a technology platform developed by Irish tech company Asavie to allow Irish businesses plug their machines into the internet of things.

The internet of things is a buzz phrase that has captured the imagination as more and more previously disconnected machines become part of a pulsating, living network.
