Louisville, CO – January 10, 2017 – Kyrio, a provider of unique testing solutions for network technology services, is proud to congratulate Tekoia for having one of the first client applications certified by the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF).

“Thanks to Kyrio’s quick and professional testing service, Tekoia’s SURE Universal is the first smart remote to meet the stringent OCF standards. It is a real honor for Tekoia to be certified by OCF, but it’s also a win for consumers and enterprises everywhere as it heralds a new era of greater interoperability for IoT,” said Viktor Ariel, the Founder and CEO of Tekoia. “It is quite incredible that all the leading IoT vendors agreed on a single OCF standard. Now, Tekoia’s compliant mobile client enables hardware businesses to focus on better IoT products.”
