End-to-end IoT platform Particle banks $20M Series B

Particle, an end-to-end enterprise IoT platform has raised $20 Million in Series B Funding. Spark Capital led the round.

Particle is a full-stack IoT device platform.

The company entered into the IoT platform market as a hardware connectivity solution deploying its platform in a wide variety of industrial and municipal IoT applications, such as in gas stations, on oil rigs, in storm water drains, and in manufacturing equipment.

However, it has evolved into a full-stack suite having the hardware, firmware, software and the Particle cloud. An appealing tagline “prototype-to-production platform for developing an Internet of Things product” and an equally robust product has helped Particle’s growth. 120,000 people and companies, 50% of which are from S&P 500, currently use it to develop their IoT products.

“While the media’s IoT focus has been primarily on consumer electronics, wearables, and ‘smart home’, we’ve learned from our customers that the future of IoT is within the enterprise market,” said Zach Supalla, CEO at Particle.

Forbes estimated that more than 450 IoT companies have mushroomed in the past two years and 25% of the IoT companies founded in 2016 closed their shop. Particle’s growth and traction were noteworthy compared to other IoT products.

Particle full-stack platform has a cloud offering, device management console, cellular IoT SIMs, SDKs and IDE (integrated development environment). The hardware components it sells include Wi-Fi connected microcontrollers, internet buttons, and asset tracking hardware kits.

The company has been consistently raising funds throughout its five years journey. It raised $567,000 of crowd-funding in 2013 followed by a Seed Round of $4.2M in July 2014 and $10.4M Series A from Root Ventures, O’Reilly Alpha Tech Ventures (OATV), and Rincon Venture Partners in Nov 2016.

Deploy360@IETF99, Day 4: IoT, IPv6, DNSSEC & TLS

By News Aggregator

By Kevin Meynell

Thursday at IETF 99 in Prague is a mixture of overflow sessions, the Internet-of-Things, and encryption. Each day we’re bringing you blog posts pointing out what Deploy360 will be focusing on.

Our day doesn’t actually start until 13.30 CEST/UTC+2, with the second part of V6OPS. This will continue discussing the ten drafts from whichever point it left them on Tuesday morning (see our Day 2 post for more information).

If you have V6OPS fatigue, then alternatively check out ROLL. This focuses on routing for the Internet-of-Things and has six drafts up for discussion.


NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 99 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.


The second afternoon session at 15.50 CEST/UTC+2 features IPWAVE. This will be discussing two drafts on transmitting IPv6 over over IEEE 802.11-OCB in Vehicle-to-Internet and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure networks, and on a problem statement for IP Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments. A further draft summarises a survey on IP-based Vehicular Networking for Intelligent Transportation Systems.

There’s two working groups during the evening session starting at 18.10 CEST/UTC+2. UTA is discussing three drafts related to the compulsory use of TLS for SMTP, an interesting one proposing to obsolete clear text transfer for e-mail, and one proposing an SMTP service extension.

Finally, there’s the second part of DNSOP. There appears to be just the one DNSSEC-related draft in this session, on algorithm negotiation.

For more background, please read the Rough Guide to IETF 99 from Olaf, Dan, Andrei, Mat, Karen and myself.
