BANGKOK -- Hitachi opened a center in Thailand on Monday to provide "internet of things" solutions for the country's manufacturers with an eye toward expanding the service to neighboring nations like Vietnam and Indonesia.

The Lumada Center Southeast Asia comes equipped with consultation rooms and a partially replicated production line from Hitachi's elevator factory in Guangzhou. The 350-sq.-meter site east of Bangkok in Chonburi Province's Amata City Industrial Estate represents the Japanese industrial company's first facility worldwide devoted to internet of things services.
