Consult Red boosts capability with cloud

June 2021

Consult Red, an employee-owned technology development company, has added a team of cloud engineers in a move that delivers a one-stop-shop in technology and IoT development capability for clients.

 

Cloud expertise in high demand

Already recognised for its connected and embedded expertise, Consult Red can now deliver hardware, software and cloud services all under one roof – important for companies looking to develop and bring smart, IoT, connected products and services to market. This additional cloud expertise is highly sought after across media and connectivity sectors and Consult Red’s clients are no exception.

 

One-stop-shop – Cloud complements CPE and connected EDGE capability

Consult Red works with many of the world’s leading media operators, including Liberty Global, Comcast (Sky) and DirecTV in the US, as well as other global brands to deliver innovative, connected devices and systems. Consult Red already has Europe’s largest independent RDK development team, and this investment in cloud capability complements its existing deep CPE and connected EDGE device capability for clients in media, telecoms and other businesses developing IoT projects.

 

Broader application of Telematics technology in end-to-end cloud and EDGE

Kamil Krupa and the team join Consult Red from a Telematics specialist working with automotive, transportation and logistics clients on hardware, software and cloud services. They’ll work with the new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Steve Donachie, and the existing IoT commercial team to explore wider applications of Telematics data and analytics connected technology, offering huge potential for clients delivering smart end-to-end cloud and EDGE solutions.

 

The news comes hot on the heels of Consult Red’s transition to an employee-owned company. Commenting on the investment to expand the team Andrew Stewart, Consult Red CEO, says: “While competitors offer some of what we deliver, we can deliver an entire end-to-end solution. For clients, our breadth of capabilities significantly reduces the amount of time, cost and risk to deliver and integrate complete systems.”

 

Steve Donachie, newly appointed CCO, said: “We’re excited to welcome Kamil and the team to Consult Red. The new commercial and technical team together bring a wealth of Telematics experience that will complement our ‘one-stop shop’ for IoT development, hardware design & delivery, embedded software and cloud-connected smart apps. We’ve already successfully delivered end-to-end smart EDGE device solutions such as environmental monitoring sensors at airports, networked cloud-connected smoke alarms and vehicle to grid home EV charging points.  The knowledge and expertise of our Cloud team, particularly in Telematics, brings a whole new raft of opportunity for not only our existing clients but also for us to continue to grow into new IoT sectors”.
