Stockholm, 2nd June 2020, iotcomms.io, provider of a platform for mission critical communication services, announces today an agreement with Phoniro AB, an Assa Abloy company dedicated to delivering digital homecare solutions for elderly people. iotcomms.io will power Phoniro’s new service “Video Visit” and also provide SCAIP functionality for alarm handling. 

With the onset of Covid-19 the need for caregivers to provide services to elderly users in a safe and secure manner has rapidly increased. Phoniro has identified remote video visits as a strategy to limit coronavirus exposure and mobilized to quickly build the new solution powered by iotcomms.io’s scalable and secure cloud platform. iotcomms.io will integrate with Phoniro’s platform “Phoniro Care” and establish video communication between the user’s tablet and the caregiver’s web application. All communication will be encrypted to ensure strongest possible security.

The new service from Phoniro is based on iotcomms.io’s “WebRTC Gateway as a function” and is built utilizing the power of public cloud infrastructure. The function provides WebRTC technology which enables video communication over a web browser, without the need of any local software, hardware or servers. By choosing iotcomms.io’s out-of-the-box functions for video communication, Phoniro has been able to move fast and reach the market in short time.

”We were impressed with the modern platform of iotcomms.io were we can integrate video functions as a service into our “Phoniro Care” platform in a serverless way and without having to worry about telecom complexity” says Magnus Fröberg, Chief Product Officer at Phoniro AB.

“Phoniro is a leading player in technology for elderly care and we are proud to be selected as vendor for video and SCAIP services. This confirm our insight that software companies need to move to more modern ways of developing solutions to stay ahead of competition.” says Gunnar Reinholdsen, Co-founder at iotcomms.io.
