SG Wireless will operate as a full stack IoT solutions specialist and provider, with services including design, development, manufacturing, programming, device management, networks, analytics and integration.
"From a vertically integrated EMS provider to a full stack IoT provider, SG Wireless is a natural progression for Season Group," said Carl Hung, CEO of SG Wireless, in the company’s press release.
