CoreTigo said in the announcement that the funds will be used to expand CoreTigo's strategic and business partner ecosystem with a focus on building end-to-end solutions by improvising the development of CoreTigo's core technology and IP.

CoreTigo uses IO-Link Wireless standard and creates a connected industrial environment without any cables in a reliable and cost-effective manner. Newer applications and systems such as robotic arms, rotating tables, and other mobile systems will be addressed further to reduce their cost of deployment.

IO-Link Wireless, a natural extension of the wired IO-Link standard, is the first wireless standard to replace cables for remote sensors and actuators in production automation. IO-Link is one of the strongest industrial smart I/O protocols and IO-Link wireless protocol further helps in enabling the evolution of Industry 4.0. The wireless standard facilitates connecting legacy machines to the cloud and easy monitoring of the same machines from the cloud.

For the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT/IoT) market, the company also facilitates wireless communication between sensors, actuators, and controllers in a cost-effective manner.
