Wireless sensor provider Mojix is buying TierConnect and subsidiary CodeRoad for an undisclosed amount.
The two Plymouth, Michigan-based businesses created ViZix, a business intelligence software for the "Internet of Things," in which various products include technology that allows them to communicate with each other.
Mojix, headquartered in Los Angeles, develops radio-frequency identification (RIFD) technology used for supply chains and enterprises. The buyer is backed by venture capital firms: Oak Investment Partners, Red Rock Ventures, Omers Ventures, Silicon Valley Bank Capital Partners and Mercury Partners International.
The two companies have worked together since 2014, when they started using their technology for supply chain management in the oil and gas industry, as well as retail and health care sectors.
In a related deal acquisition, wireless technology provider Novatel Wireless (Nasdaq: MIFI) bought Feeney Wireless, which makes Internet of Things products.
