The second Silicon Valley Beijing International IoT Summit & Investment and Financing Competition named California-based V5 Systems as the first-place winner for its V5 Portable Edge Computing Unit (V5 PECU). The V5 PECU analyzes, collects, and shares sensor data in areas free from the electrical grid thanks to a proprietary ongoing power source, building on the Industrial Internet of Things.
“As an American company, we are especially proud of this win, as we are competing in a space which Chinese companies have dominated thus far due to their market's emphasis on IoT development,” said Helena Wang, V5 Systems Vice President of Global Business Development in a recent statement. “Along with our customer feedback, this win is proof that we have developed something truly disruptive.”
This recognition from the Silicon Valley Beijing International IoT Summit marks the latest award V5 Systems received, with their security application running on the V5 PECU platform acquiring ten other awards throughout the industry. Some of these awards include first place at the Accolades Competition at ASIS 2017, Dell’s “Connect What Matters” Platinum Award, and Security Today Magazine’s New Product of the Year Awards in IoT, Outdoor Perimiter Protection, and Video Surveilance Hardware & Accessories.
V5 Systems solutions already exist in real-world applications due to a partnership with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for the use of V5’s Camera Adaptive Platform (V5 CAP). The V5 CAP’s portability, wireless access, and self-power capabilities allowed its fast and cost-effective deployment by UCLA, enabling the college to provide additional security to students during their Move-In Weekend.
