Companies have traditionally been slow to respond to the advent of digital technologies such as intelligent robots, drones, sensor technology, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and 3D printing. With smarter solutions based on the Internet of Things, your business can acquire data from any source, from machine to enterprise-wide, based on big-data analytics for end-to-end visibility. Help your company move into the future through loT technology that makes all connected devices “intelligent” and significantly improves performance through predictive analytics.
Complex customer demands, e-commerce boom, customization, and more created the need for data that is fast & accurate paving the way for explosion of connected devices and platforms. Combined with then abundance of data and the rapidly changing technology landscape has made it imperative for businesses to swiftly adapt their products and services to move from physical world to a digital one.
Black Box's digital business strategy gives you the flexibility, bandwidth, and support your business needs to not only be prepared for today's IT, but also to remain secure and future-proof as loT continues to expand and networks become essential to your success.
Design, implement, and manage advanced IoT technologies to drive business efficiency. Reducing repetitive or time-consuming tasks increase inter/intra-office communication between locations, both local and global, resulting in better productivity.
From using IoT sensors to keep business equipment at peak efficiency via predictive analytics to streamlining common work processes and energy management, there are numerous ways to use IoT technology to favorably impact the bottom line of your business.
IoT sensors have made it possible to monitor the environment to determine the presence of pollutants in air and water, gain real-time insight into energy consumption as well as proposals for optimization, and promote better sustainability. IoT advancements are paramount in predicting, monitoring, and planning for environmental changes and enable cost and energy efficient methods to run industrial operations.
Black Box IoT solutions help companies in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, oil & gas, healthcare, commercial, and IT be more competitive, as well as build smarter infrastructure for a greener, sustainable economy. Our comprehensive portfolio includes solutions designed and developed at the Black Box R&D center in Mumbai (India), such as VISIBLE IoT Cloud, Magikk, AlertWare, AlertWerks, and Jido, complemented by IoT solutions from leading technology partners such as UnifyTwin, Avnet, Advantech, and more.
Covid-19 has catalyzed companies to make greater use of Industry 4.0 technologies, especially the Industrial Internet of Things, to maintain business continuity. The companies that implement IoT technologies earlier than their competitors and in their value chains are the ones that will win in the long run.
UnifyTwin is the first Industry 5.0 IIoT platform unifying human and machine intelligence to drive predictable outcomes eliminating digital blindspots.

Green Lens or GLens is a comprehensive, real-time data acquisition, monitoring, and analytics platform for industrial emissions, effluent discharges, and ambient air monitoring.
VISIBLE IoT Cloud provides businesses with the infrastructure needed to connect their assets and gain insights from the data collected to improve decision making. The modular design of VISIBLE IoT Cloud helps the user focus on what's important.
Improve asset utilization, track moving assets in real-time, and reduce asset lifecycle costs with AlertWare. These remote monitoring devices use Bluetooth 5.2 Low-Energy (BLE) with Apple iBeacon technology for wireless networks. The collected information integrates into your IoT platforms and mobile apps.
Magikk is a sensor-enabled device the size of a matchbox that combines the power of satellite-based positioning and sensor-based data to track the location of workers. Widely used for "lone worker" scenarios, Magikk acts as a first responder system, where at the push of a button it sends all information in the form of voice or data, allowing the organization to act quickly and decisively.
Use real-time GPS location data to gain 24/7 access, visibility, and control over the status of long-distance shipments in transit and storage with Jido. Event-based alerts enable rapid response to tampering, system failures, unauthorized use, and other critical issues that can jeopardize valuable assets.Learn More
Actively monitor a wide range of ambient conditions – such as temperature, humidity, power spikes, water leaks, and smoke - anywhere where you need to guard mission-critical IT equipment. AlertWerks ensures the wellbeing of environments, makes your building intelligent, and conserves energy.Learn More

Gain insight from our experts into technologies and strategies for digital transformation.
The internet of things (IoT) is a network of countless connected devices that gather and exchange data with each other ̶ through the internet or cloud ̶ about how they are used and the environment around them.
Business-savvy professionals everywhere and in every kind of enterprise are embracing the benefits of IoT for its potential to accelerate digital transformation and propel businesses forward. If your business is on the path to digital transformation, then it’s a good idea to make IoT part of your plan too.
Why? Because these days, data is one of your company’s most valuable assets. And these devices collect a lot of data — data that can be analyzed and processed in ways that help your business reduce expenses, become more efficient, minimize risk, increase sales, enhance customer experiences, improve medical outcomes, and so much more.
That’s the essence of digital transformation: making better use of data in order to influence business decisions, processes, and growth. But to do that, you first have to establish a digital link with your users and your customers. It’s the best — and arguably only — way to collect all the information you need.
That’s what IoT was born to do. IoT serves as that digital link, collecting things like user and location data from all manner of internet-connected devices and applications — everything from industrial machines to surveillance cameras, vehicles to wearables — and sending it to you across the network. The more connected you are, the greater your edge. And the sooner you get connected, the faster you’ll realize the benefits.
For a lot of businesses, implementing IoT is easier said than done. That’s why many of them are turning to experienced service delivery partners for consulting and integration expertise on a range of IoT multisite deployment options, structured cabling solutions, network connectivity, and cybersecurity.
Choose the right partner, and you’ll be able to give all your attention to your business and leave IoT to the experts. Because you won’t have to implement, monitor, or maintain the infrastructure, you’ll save money in the process. And by beating other companies in the data-utilization game, you’re much more likely to dominate your market.
