Asset tracking and the supply chain have been among the earliest applications to gain significant traction – first in the machine-to-machine (M2M) market over the last two decades and, in more recent years, in the Internet of Things (IoT). With applications becoming more ubiquitous, pervasive and sophisticated, smart logistics solutions offer unprecedented visibility and accuracy throughout the modern supply chain and factory now more than ever.
IoT and, in particular, LoRaWAN® technology, is on the cusp of ushering in a whole new era of end-to-end supply chain monitoring over wide distances by land, sea and air, at low cost.
In this podcast, three members from the LoRa Alliance, Oxit, Semtech, and Senet, share their expertise in:
- What to consider when evaluating and implementing IoT applications.
- How businesses have adapted their asset tracking and supply chain connectivity, as a result of the pandemic.
- Examples of successful LoRaWAN implementations and the ROI for the supply chain, factory, and manufacturing.
The low-power, long-range capabilities of LoRaWAN technology are widely used in logistics and supply chain monitoring, including for: indoor/outdoor asset tracking, end-to-end tracking of goods through the supply chain such as cold chain monitoring for maintaining product quality, and fleet management. LoRaWAN brings together competitive cost, the capability of handling extremely high device density at a given site, smooth deployment over public or private networks, and mature security that has been developed over many years.
Josh Cox, CEO of Oxit, an IoT Engineering firm with 7+ years of LoRaWAN experience across millions of connected sensors and several industries.
Pierre Gelpi, who as LoRa business development Director at Semtech in Europe, builds end to end partnerships for enterprise customers, particularly in the logistics / asset tracking vertical.
Karen Tilson, VP Business Development for Senet, who joined them in 2016 following 6 years in the RFID industry, and prior to that she was co-founder of a software company providing an asset tracking solution into the construction industry.
