“This partnership allows both Conectric and Black Buffalo to provide innovative and immediately practical solutions to enhance the tech stack for IoT devices within all ecosystems,” says Michael Woods, CEO & COO for Black Buffalo Corporation. “Hyundai BS&C has made extensive progress globally with these smart solutions, and with the assistance of Conectric, we can now provide this value domestically in the US with scalable and sustainable opportunities.”
Black Buffalo’s market demand has been strong globally within cities, factories, homes and apartment buildings. Conectric’s ultra-scalable wireless sensor private networking and sensor pack devices provide the ideal solution for Black Buffalo’s domestic entry into these highly scaled, sensor dense and security conscious business environments.

This will finally allow different municipal governments to communicate data across a standardized layer and provides citizens with seamless benefits from one block to another. We have multiple pilots planned for 2020 and expect this will be available to channels before next year, finally solving these substantial industry problems.”
