CyanConnode, the world leader in narrowband RF mesh networks for Omni Internet of Things communications, announces that it has signed a multi-year strategic partnership with Eppix eSolutions to enable the integration of SAP Hybris software with CyanConnode's Enterprise platform.


Eppix eSolutions will integrate CyanConnode's enterprise-level, Head End Software (HES) with a Meter Data Management System (MDMS) to create the first SAP-based MDMS for the global utility market.

This strategic partnership with Eppix eSolutions provides a clear indication of the Company's planned evolution to a managed services business model that delivers a recurring revenue stream from software licenses and support services. Furthermore, this collaboration will broaden our partner eco-system, adding a new level of decision makers and influencers within the global ERP market for utilities."
