Australian digital solutions company Two Bulls has won a development contract with the Linux Foundation to develop IoT connectivity on a global scale.

The company - whose innovative work in the IoT space has also led to a spinout of its smart home-centric Higgns platform – was awarded the 12-month contract to provide developmental resources to the AllJoyn framework, an open-source platform designed to provide interoperability and functionality for IoT systems.

The contract will result in more than 15 new jobs created in Two Bulls’ Australian offices in Collingwood, Victoria.

Two Bulls CEO James Kane credits the contract win to the company’s reputation in the IoT space and its strong ties with the AllSeen Alliance, which oversees Alljoyn and counts global companies like Microsoft, Qualcomm, LG and Sony as members.

“Our relationship with the AllSeen Aliance has seen us develop a number of incredible products, and we look forward to taking this further,” Kane said.

“We’ve been privileged to work with a number of amazing clients over the last seven years, giving us the experience and depth of skill to tackle the most interesting and innovative projects.”

Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade Philip Dalidakis said the contract win was a great opportunity to showcase local talent on a global scale.

“Congratulations to Two Bulls on this development opportunity to grow their business here in Melbourne and create 15 new Victorian jobs,” Dalidakis said.

“It’s great to see local companies competing on a world stage and strengthening Victoria’s reputation as a global tech hub.”
