Izuma Networks Takes over Pelion's Device Management Arm

The deal closes this month and sees Pelion's current management team and employees joining Izuma Networks' global device management business, headed by chief executive officer Travis McCollum.

No financial details have been disclosed. The move will help Izuma Networks gain an expanded client base in the US, Canada, and Europe, with McCollum reporting substantial revenue opportunities arising from the deal in a statement on the company website.

Izuma Networks was founded this year by IoT veterans Travis McCollum and Ed Hemphill, and its founders plan to hire new talent now and also concentrate on developing and Dev-ops.

Additionally, McCollum and Hemphill co-founded the Austin-based start-up, WigWag, which was acquired by Arm in 2019. The Izuma Cloud is a unified IoT deployment and management solution.

With Izuma's acquisition of Pelion, they have become a leading provider of edge computing and IoT services worldwide.

Its Apache 2.0 software stack, Izuma Edge, runs on any x86 or Arm 64-bit product and allows applications to be deployed via Kubernetes APIs to manage hundreds of remote gateways.

Before it was purchased by Arm, WigWag took the workload off home automation by making the devices manageable and efficient.

It accomplished this through an open-source runtime called device, which reduces the complexities of other IoT protocols and provides a unified programming language for quick apps and device construction.
