If your assets are remote or hard to reach, is it any less important to know what’s happening to them?
When you have assets in remote or hard to reach locations, it’s hard to keep regular tabs on them. This is particularly problematic for assets that are vulnerable to changes in the environment or other unexpected damage or loss.
What if there was a way to identify unexpected problems early so you can respond quickly and protect your expensive assets from loss?
The total land area of Australia is close to 7.69 million square kilometres. Only 50,000 square kilometres are urban — some 7.64 million square kilometres is rural. Unsurprisingly, something like 90% of Australia has no cellular coverage. Without cellular coverage, it’s difficult and expensive to provide IoT (Internet of Things) services to the Outback. Assets monitoring and environmental measurements can be difficult, if not very expensive. Even if cellular coverage is available, there is no assurance it would remain available in bad weather or when disaster strikes.
Here are some Australian examples where connectivity into remote areas would be of value:
There has to be a way to provide connectivity.
At OmniTabz we have taken this challenge seriously. We recognise that an IoT solution needs to be always available, even in times of disaster, and must be capable of standalone operation – no dependence on terrestrial networks or power supplies.
We do this by making use of satellites to connect to anywhere, and once we have these connections in place we make use of LoRaWAN and LoRa technologies to connect to sensors and devices in the area.
Our solutions are based around this potent technology combination, where we bring asset information back to a central point – available to you via a secure API.
