The new investment will be used to support the company's strategy to expand its mobile device testing service cloud.

TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Perfecto Mobile, a global leading provider of remote access and automated testing solutions for mobile devices, today announced that it has closed a $7 million second round of financing. The sum was raised from existing investors: Carmel Ventures and Vertex Venture Capital. Perfecto Mobile will use the proceeds of this financing round to expand its Handset Cloud testing service as well as for ramping up marketing and sales activities.

"We are very excited about the new investment from our long-term supporting venture funds," said Eran Yaniv, CEO of Perfecto Mobile. "The emergence of new business models and open technologies in the mobile industry, such as mobile application stores, mobile widgets and open device platforms increases the need for testing on mobile devices and thus creates a great opportunity for Perfecto Mobile."

Yaniv added that with the new funds Perfecto Mobile will be able to reach more developers and better address their needs by increasing the number of handsets available for testing in more geographical locations.

"We are confident in Perfecto Mobile's ability to take advantage of the big and growing market it approaches," said Rina Shainski, General Partner at Carmel Ventures. "With a strong management team and a compelling service that helps perfecting mobile applications and increasing the quality in the mobile industry, Perfecto Mobile is poised to be the leader of its market."

The developments in the mobile industry encourage an ever-growing number of developers to create a myriad of new innovative applications and quickly get them to market. In order to successfully monetize applications and ensure their quality, these developers, as well as the app stores providers, need to test the applications on a variety of mobile handsets. Perfecto Mobile's Handset Cloud service enables developers and testers to test their mobile phone applications over the web on a multitude of real handsets of various platforms, such as Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, and J2ME.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
