Greenwave Systems Introduces AXON Platform for Conversational IoT, the First Voice Activated Smart Gateway Solution for Service Providers
Greenwave Systems Inc., a services supplier for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced AXON Platform for Conversational IoT, a carrier-grade smart gateway that supports a hands-free, voice activated speaker with customizable wake-up word and open architecture. The solution combines the company’s AXON Platform with advanced integrated voice and artificial intelligence (AI) powered natural language understanding (NLU) technology from Nuance, enabling an opportunity for service providers to create conversational IoT in multiple languages.
AXON Platform for Conversational IoT is an end-to-end embedded and cloud-based delivery and IoT management solution for companies looking to implement a voice interface in a variety of environments, including industrial, commercial and consumer segments. The solution is part of a flexible architecture. It leverages Nuance Mix to deliver voice recognition, text-to-speech, voice biometrics powered wake-up word and AI-powered language understanding. Nuance Mix supports access to cloud services such as news, weather and Q&A. In addition, the platform introduces new network features expected by carriers for HD Voice, media optimization, security and IoT end-point management. The reference implementation streamlines product development and gives providers direct control over managed services.
Greenwave powers millions of devices on networks through telecom, utilities and service providers for their managed services such as audio, video, broadband and energy management systems. Smart home and enterprise ecosystems will benefit from this unique ability to experience conversational IoT with intelligence and easy integration of new managed services.
“Consumers will be the litmus test on the IoT – if these intelligent devices aren’t able to seamlessly integrate into day to day life, the opportunity for the ecosystem and consumers is lost,” said Kenn Harper, vice president, emerging solutions, Nuance Mobile.
The solution combines customizable voice recognition and AI with microphone beam-forming, acoustic echo cancellation, barge-in capabilities, speech signal enhancement, Bluetooth audio, Wi-Fi and Z-Wave connectivity, into a single platform that can be fully customized and scalable for the world’s leading service providers. Customers will obtain a reliable and robust platform while retaining control over services.
