Chad Trytten is co-founder of Koriist, a software defined networking company that accelerates Internet of Things deployments by getting today’s IOT data from yesterday’s devices. He graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2006 with a degree in Cognitive Systems, Computational Intelligence: Computer Science and Neuroscience speciality and saw the potential for M2M/IOT in those early, nascent years. Having a key focus on solutions that utilize technology in a practical manner instead of pontificating, Chad has leveraged his eye for innovation and design optimization to tackle the fundamental problem of integrating highly mixed heterogeneous hardware and software components into cohesive functional systems. Previously, he founded two tech software startups (one successful exit; one ongoing) that researched and developed networking technologies proven to reduce the integration engineering effort of combining disparate networked devices in government applications from years to months and in commercial applications from months to weeks.
At Koriist, Chad has refined this general approach to focus on securely connecting power/water/gas (all with scarce resources) for remote access and management, stitching together digital infrastructure across existing and disparate equipment running on top of the world’s trusted networks – rather than rip out and replace them. Koriist’s mission is to make networking protocols irrelevant to any networked devices; to transport and translate any protocol and quickly deliver data, regardless of where it is produced or what wires/waves it needs to transit.
