Tired of not travelling? Let’s take a remote look at what’s happening elsewhere. There is a lot of activity over the ocean. Companies based in Paris, London, Geneva and Copenhagen all feature in today’s early-morning B2B news.

KINOPS, a Paris-based supplier of telecommunications solutions for telecom operators and enterprises, has acquired the start-up SixSq, a SaaS provider for Edge Computing.

Geneva-based SixSq has developed a solution that enables smart data processing directly on the company’s site.

The acquisition shows Ekinops’ strategy to provide greater added value to its customers. 

“After enriching OneOS6 middleware with SD-WAN and SBC solutions, it is now possible to extend it to all types of applications through the integration of NuvlaBox into OneOS6 and access to the Nuvla.io marketplace. The possibilities are infinite!” said Didier Brédy, CEO of Ekinops. “We are looking forward to presenting this opportunity to our telecom operator customers. It is a new way for them to monetize their presence at enterprise branch sites through our OneOS6 routers.”
