CTO Kohashi

Since its founding in 2004, Braveridge Co., Ltd. has continued to take on challenges as a manufacturer with designing and development capabilities that Japanese manufacturers have lost.

In recent years, Braveridge has become a rare presence with a factory in Japan exceeding our expertise in wireless communication technologies, performing one-stop operations from RF modules to planning, development and manufacturing of IoT devices.

From a perspective of hardware development and business as our backbone, we are in constant pursuit of resolving IoT issues and finding better solutions.
We provide a service platform that dramatically accelerates the speed of development and deliver products faster to market, not only with RF modules and IoT devices but also through MVNOs that include communication SIMs, cloud, and applications.

We strive to design the future of society that enables IoT from a broad perspective of the potentials of IoT solutions while strengthening our capabilities in product planning and development. It is our duty to push the limits of our knowledge and set high technological standards as we build the business we envision with the growth of the company and the society.
