Thingsee aims to be a one-stop-shop for IoT solutions. For enterprises, which build their IoT businesses on the Thingsee IoT platform, this means that they get purpose-built IoT devices, a complete device management Cloud, and a full customisation service for an optimal business case from Haltian. Using AWS Haltian is able to easily deploy and manage the Thingsee IoT platform for enterprises, and ensures that it is compliant with Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud and many other ecosystems.

AWS Greengrass Edge computing enables Thingsee IoT solution to run on private networks as well. Thingsee sensor devices use Wirepas IoT Mesh networking to transmit data to the local Thingsee Gateway device, which then relays it to the Thingsee Edge on-site solution based on AWS Greengrass Edge Computing. The Private LTE technology complements the solution with flexible and secure wireless connectivity, and ensures 5G-readiness through NB-IoT and LTE Cat M1 connectivity protocols.
