Belgian IIoT firm Sensolus has partnered with German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom to launch a powerful asset tracking solution.
“Asset tracking and management can only ever be as good as the network that enables data transmission,” explains Johan Criel, Co-Founder and CTO at Sensolus. “It is important to find a network provider who knows the specific requirements of IoT applications and offers suitable network services.”
“We are very pleased that Deutsche Telekom, as the market-leading provider in Germany, is working with us and is supporting the implementation of our end-to-end solution with its highly available NB-IoT network, which particularly benefits companies from the transport, logistics, and the industry sector.”
Sensolus’ portfolio of GPS trackers can withstand harsh conditions and feature intelligent motion and tilt detection systems that can be supplemented with additional sensors for collecting data such as temperature and filling levels.
Using Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), the batteries in Sensolus’ sensors last for at least five years.
“Over the past few years, we have worked hard to continuously improve the performance of our trackers, as well as the functionality of the Sensolus asset management platform,” said Filip Van Lancker, Head of Partnerships at Sensolus.
“Across Europe, more than 175,000 of our customers’ trackers are already connected to our platform. Now we are proud to be able to offer our solution to a wide range of companies in Germany together with Deutsche Telekom.”
A cloud-based management platform is used for configuring and managing Sensolus’ trackers. Beyond just displaying where the assets are on a map, the solution also provides companies with comprehensive AI-supported analysis of tracker data.
“IoT technology offers huge opportunities for tracking and managing their assets, achieving efficiency gains and implementing new business models to companies, in particular, in the industrial, transport and logistics sectors,” adds Emanouel Tachtsoglou, IoT Expert and Partner Manager at Deutsche Telekom IoT.
“Containers, pallets, crates or trailers – companies that not only locate such carriers with precision, but also systematically evaluate their movement and status data – can optimise use of their assets, thereby making processes more efficient and saving costs.
“With Sensolus, we are expanding our partner portfolio in the field of IoT solutions. By doing so, we are able to offer our customers in Germany an intelligent solution for the asset tracking and management of their non-powered assets.”
