Generate a data point for each user interaction with your product and send it to your Product Lifecycle Management System for further analysis.
Offer additional features and services.
Enable users of your products to activate additional features digitally. Offer additional services based on the transmitted data. Upselling has never been easier.
FOR CONNECTED PRODUCTS
Energy-efficient, cost-effective and easy to integrate
Regardless if LoRaWAN, NB-IoT or Sigfox. All LPWAN radio modules used are available for the common form factors, pin-to-pin compatible and very cost-effective. Often, the providers employed offer a dual connectivity approach with which it can be decided in the project which networking technology best meets the requirements of the application in terms of location, service requirements and costs. Such modules can also act as a bridge between the technologies. When problems occur in a network, applications can switch to the other protocol, providing redundancy for the communication connections.
Wireless networks for IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) requires high efficiency and flexible scalability of the communication. LPWAN meets both requirements: excellent range, high penetration, and long battery life at the lowest cost for components (chips/radio modules) or data transmission (connectivity). Various technologies have established their position in the market in recent years: LoRaWAN, Sigfox, and NB-IoT.
