relayr set out to build a Cloud Platform as a Service to help enable the Internet of Things to take off. We were inspired by the old Cisco BlueBox from 1984. It was the first multiprotocol router, and it made different networking protocols interoperable. It meant that IBM networks could communicate with WANG networks, or Hewlett-Packard networks, laying the next layer of the Internet.
We see the same thing happening with the growing population of connected devices - they did not communicate with each other. relayr is building the interoperability cloud layer, connecting different devices from different manufacturers and providing the software for building new solutions across any device and any thing.
