ASSET TRACKING

NETOP Technology is making it easy and economical for smart supply chain and logistics to track valuable assets including vehicle fleets and on-ground equipment (i.e. trolleys, expensive tools). With Internet of Things (IoT) tracking for fleets and equipment, businesses can reduce cost by keeping these items in the field longer with better visibility for maintenance issues and close monitoring of real-time location.

In an airport or a seaport, NETOP Technology gives managers an affordable window into all the information they require from the assets at work. Cloud based devices, sensors and gateways are an affordable way to capture, track and manage all the data generated by multiple movable assets in-motion.

HOW TO?
Asset Tracking

NETOP devices capture usage and location data from the tracked assets and transmit the data wirelessly to cloud, where operations personnel can view it on web dashboards. This information is also accessible through a customer’s existing equipment maintenance software, ensuring NETOP technologies fit into even the most customized situation.

CARGO TRACKING

Large, high-value assets like shipping containers full of cargo, capital equipment and the vehicles that transport them are vulnerable to theft whenever they are in transit. Similarly, the large vehicles used by agriculture, construction, mining, and other industries present tempting targets to would-be thieves when they are left unattended in remote locations.

A LPWAN-enabled gateway can communicate with any asset equipped with a low-power radio that supports the LPWAN protocol. When embedded within a sensor module, it enables remote monitoring of conditions such as temperature, shock, vibration, or tampering. It is also possible to determine a LPWAN-equipped asset’s location and direction of travel using radio triangulation.

HOW TO?
Cargo Tracking

Cargo containers, vehicles and other high-value assets are equipped with a smart, self-powered NETOP sensor module that can detect unexpected door openings, or other signs of tampering. The sensor module’s embedded LPWAN transceiver communicates with LPWAN-based gateways using the LPWAN protocol. The sensor module’s LPWAN transceiver periodically transmits its status information to all LPWAN-based gateways within its range (typically 5-30 km’s). The gateways forward the packets, and a precise timestamp (based on time of arrival) to a network server in the Cloud.

SHIPMENT QUALITY

There are many tens of millions of packages and documents shipped daily to countries around the globe. Keeping track of these shipments is a tremendous undertaking. In addition, shipping companies and retailers need to be able to track the condition of temperature-sensitive or fragile items to make sure they arrive safely.

Sensors gather information on location  including temperature, humidity levels, drops, rapid movement, or package openings to ensure safety and quality of sensitive materials.

HOW TO?
Shipment Quality

NETOP sensors affixed to packages and embedded with LPWAN Technology collect movement, location data and in special cases temperature or package opening data if the package is sensitive to environment or has a high value. LPWAN-based gateways collect data that is periodically transmitted by the sensors. Gateway sends information to Cloud server where the data is analyzed by an application server. Application server sends alerts to shipping company or retailer via mobile device or computer.

FLEET MANAGEMENT

LPWAN devices and wireless RF technology are making it easy and economical for smart supply chain and logistics to track valuable assets including vehicle fleets at a construction site. With Internet of Things (IoT) tracking for fleets, businesses can reduce cost by keeping fleets in the field longer with better visibility for maintenance issues and close monitoring of real-time location.

HOW TO?
Fleet Management

NETOP LPWAN-based sensors and gateways  installed on site, typically within a 2 to 8 Km range in open areas. Gateways gather information from the sensors and can be provided by a private or public LPWAN network provider. Cloud-based software is configured to collect all asset data and track it permanently.

Tracking devices placed on company assets, such as tractors, trolleys, cranes, forklifts, and other essential in-motion assets enable real-time location and status sharing with a central manager

FLEET TRACKING

Vehicle fleets of trucks, cars, ships, trains, planes, etc. are the lifeblood of many businesses that need to ship products or provide transportation services.

By implementing a fleet tracking solution comprised of sensors and gateways embedded with LPWAN Technology and an intelligent low power wide area network based on the respective LPWAN protocol, organizations can help improve their logistics, thus reducing costs and improving transportation timeliness.

HOW TO?
Fleet Tracking

Location data collected by NETOP sensors embedded with LPWAN Technology. Data from all sensors is periodically sent to a LPWAN based gateway as the vehicle moves. Gateway sends information to network server where speed, location, direction, and other variables are collected and sent to a specific application server in the Cloud. Application server sends reports and alerts on movement and safety of the vehicle to driver or supervisor via computer or mobile device.

CONTAINER LOCATER

Container Locater is a LPWAN supported IoT device which can find exactly where your storage containers are located. It is plug & sense. Easy to deploy and install on huge container areas.

You can easily find the location of your container on a customized map, and easily track movements.

HOW TO?
Container Locator

Data is collected by NETOP sensors embedded with LPWAN Technology. Data from the sensors is periodically sent to a LPWAN-based gateway. Gateway sends information to network server where the data is analyzed by an application server that can be located in Cloud Application server.
