Smart Industry


There are three types of Industry we focus on all of which stand to gain improved performance, operational efficiencies and additional value from the adoption of LoRaWAN® Low-Power, Wide Area Networks and Industrial IoT Transformation (at scale). These include:

•Extraction of raw materials, such as Mining, Oil & Gas
•Manufacturing; transportation (trains, maritime shipping), medical, waste disposal…
•Tertiary sector, such as Automotive, Aerospace, Smart Manufacturing, Construction

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the foundation for Industry 4.0 and Smart Factories. Factory machines, infrastructure, management systems, etc. all of which are becoming increasingly connected as industry players invest in innovative solutions to streamline operations to better manage resources, equipment and the safety of personnel and the environment. 

The ability for machines, devices and people to communicate with each other in real-time will result in vast amounts of shared data to improve on key areas of the manufacturing process as well as support workers by providing newly available information. Even more mind-blowing, cyber physical systems can make autonomous decisions to free up more time and labor for the human workforce. 

Smart Industry benefits

Already in use in a number of other sectors around the globe, LoRaWAN applications are the perfect choice for providing innovative solutions, increasing efficiency, reliability, safety and security, and so much more within industrial processes and products. Once the flexible, scalable and multipurpose IoT network infrastructure is established, businesses are well on their way to creating smart facilities and factories. 

A network of sensors providing workers with real-time data via the Cloud is a powerful tool that can affect all aspects of the manufacturing process. Here are a few benefits of LoRaWAN technology solutions being implemented in factories:

•Detection of smoke, leaks, fires and general air quality and temperature control.
•​​​​Monitoring the presence and flow of liquids in pipes and tanks.
•Monitoring conditions of equipment, machines and facility infrastructure.
•Monitoring the safety and security of personnel and assets.
•Monitoring of battery power levels machine energy consumption.
