C3 IoT platform proving to be a big data hit
C3 Energy, the developer of Internet of Things software for energy companies, has begun marketing the platform it uses to develop its IoT software to the entire energy industry.
The Redwood City, Calif., company had made the platform, which it calls C3 CyberPhysix, available on a limited basis for several years. Twenty energy companies in the United States and Europe, including Exelon Corp., Enel S.p.A., and Engie, already are using it, C3 Energy said.
C3 CyberPhysix enables users to develop cyber-physical applications, which are software programs that control physical entities.
“(The applications) take data from customers and devices, and they correlate it with the operational systems that the oil and gas and utility companies use to manage their grids and distribution systems and effectively allow them to develop analytic and operational systems that deliver value to their businesses,” said Ed Abbo, C3 Energy’s president and CTO.
Apps developed on C3 CyberPhysix can gather data from hundreds of independent data sources and tens of millions of sensors and process it at over 1.5 million transactions per second.
