Remote asset tracking and monitoring in Telecom

Pilot project for a large telecom tower operator based in the Asia pacific region. They were looking at a remote asset tracking and monitoring solution with computerised maintenance management system (CMMS)integrated with RTLS software

Deployed the solution in an hour to track equipment in the base station and transmission towers. Mesh technology penetrates through the base station metallic partition. RTLS devices on batteries, SMPS, RCU and other devices

Farm produce transit and distribution monitoring – Nederlands. internet of things, RTLS case studies

This distribution company wanted to monitor the temperature of the vegetable trays being transported from the farm to distribution centers and retail stores. The pricing of the products was based on a variance in temperature while shipment and the transporter invoice was adjusted on a performance basis.
