Is NetObjex a Platform or Services company?

NetObjex is a Platform company at its core and offers services in the areas of IoT, AI and Blockchain primarily around its product suite.

How is NetObjex different from other companies in IoT, AI or Blockchain?

We look at these technologies not as discrete capabilities but as a continuum towards the development and operations of small digital assets. In our continuum, we look at IOT as an excellent mechanism for data acquisition and actuation, and think of AI as a powerful tool in seeking patterns in large volumes of data to unearth insights, and leverage blockchain (distributed ledgers) as means of disseminating data among an ecosystem in a decentralized network.

What is a Digital Asset?

There are several older definitions and various interpretations of this phrase. To us a Digital Asset is any physical object that has a digital twin e.g. a car, or any entity that is already represented in a digital medium e.g. an MP3 music file.

What is a Digital Twin?

A digital twin is a virtual representation of a physical object. For instance, we all have virtual avatars in the form of Facebook or LinkedIn IDs. Similarly, everyday objects e.g. thermostats, cars, handbags can have digital representations.

How is NetObjex IOT different from the dozens of IOT platforms out there?

In the following ways:
    - In many IOT platforms, the “T” or Things is immediately representative of some Industrial IOT equipment. While we can stand toe to toe with those platforms on Industrial IOT, we believe in a much more flexible definition of “T” Things to mean Digital assets.
    - Second, we have abstracted the core building blocks of IOT into several constructs (think of them as Lego™ blocks) which can be put together in multiple configurations to achieve a variety of results and outcomes. These building blocks include:
        + Digital Asset Type
        + Payload Type
        + Rules
        + Distributed Ledger Type
        + Messaging
        + Enterprise Gateway
        + , and several more.
    - This makes our platform far more flexible and amenable to the changing landscape of IOT.
    - IOT when strung together with AI and blockchain provides a closed-loop secure solution for governance and compliance which is not possible with the current batch of standalone IOT platforms.

How secure is the NetObjex platform?

We take security very seriously, so much so that we have several lines of defenses including:
    Securing edge devices using Secure Element technology to ensure no rogue devices enter the network, and that information is transmitted securely.
    We utilize blockchain to ensure data captured through our secure IOT framework is stored in a cryptographically secure environment.

What is NetObjex stance of Decentralized vs Centralized computing?

    We believe that Client-Server computing has its place and so does Decentralized computing. Client-Server computing is fine within organizations where Trust is not an issue. However, in ecosystems involving multiple companies with trust boundaries, information sharing has always been murky. Past solutions include punching holes in firewalls and building web services for data sharing. However, blockchain provides an option wherein all ecosystem participants can share information in a transparent, immutable, tamper-proof format in situations where trust issues arise.
    Our blockchain interoperability platform enables one to talk to a multitude of Blockchain platforms with a single API. This includes Ethereum, IOTA, NEM, Hyperledger, and more. We believe that the world will ultimately be one where there are multiple distributed ledgers and hence the ability to connect and read and write data from/to these sources is going to be critical.
    We don’t believe that large volumes of raw data need to be stored on blockchain. Infact, that is a problem well handled by Big Data systems. Blockchain is good for important transactions, anomalies, exceptions where one needs an audit trail.

Besides the platform, what types of services does NetObjex provide?

All these services are all related to the core thesis of IOT-AI-Blockchain as a continuum
    - Hardware design and development
    - Firmware development
    - Mobile Apps/Dapps
    - Web front ends and admin panels
    - Blockchain development - protocol development, smart contracts, tokens, turnkey ICO development
    - Enterprise integration ERP, CMS, CRM
    - Whitepaper, Yellow Papers, Research and Strategy
