BinSentry was attempting to manage multiple carrier contracts and plans all in-house and it became too much to manage.

KORE Solution

BinSentry is able to seamlessly manage their diverse connectivity via powerful connectivity management platform from KORE. The platform gives a unified view of all devices connected within an IoT ecosystem so that BinSentry can provision IoT devices, prevent data overages and unnecessary costs, and diagnose connectivity issues in real-time.

KORE also provided BinSentry with its eSIM, which eliminates the needs for costly truck rolls when a carrier change is required.

Results

BinSentry can now bring realiable connectivity solutions in challenging, rural environments. Ultimately offering its customers a way to stave off waste by providing the exact amount of feed that farms need, exactly when they need it. And sustainability is supported by having less truck deliveries of feed because the guesswork is eliminated.

Now, our feed mill customers can look at their dashboards and in real-time see exactly how much product exists in every single feed bin that they service, act proactively to manage demand, and then plan accordingly. It takes only 15 minutes to install the IoT-powered sensors which effectively solve a 40- year-old problem” – Randall Schwartzenruber, Founder and CEO

This award winning start-up based in Germany provides eco-friendly monitoring and sensing solutions to water utilities and distribution networks – with the aim of making the water supply intelligent and sustainable.

Due to the nature of their operations being 24/7 water network monitoring – they needed future-proof connectivity that wont be impacted by evolving network technologies, sunsets, or service terminations and avoid carrier/technical lock-ins with a single SIM. But they also needed multi-carrier, failover connectivity from a single SIM to ensure continual maximum uptime to track operational critical water leaks.

Working with KORE, their ambition is to identify leaks, better serve customers and conserve water – helping urban areas worldwide, buck the numbers of almost €8.77 billion loss each year from leaked water alone.

IoTContinuum

IoT market has huge potential for growth: 24 billion to 125 billion IoT devices by 2030 from different market research. However, current status shows that only 10% of IoT projects are industrialized.
To overcome all the roadblocks and risks, a group of companies representing the full IoT value chain decided to offer an innovative IoT journey from proof-of-concept to industrialization. It allows any user to leverage from existing devices and ensuring that what you have developed at early stage can be reused to scale-up your projects in an industrial way and that they can be deployed internationally.

While COVID-19 took over the world and prevented in-person interactions, it became evident that the remaining roaming traffic was IoT. The economic potential engendered by the proliferation of IoT is both immense and yet, barely tapped. The pressure on network systems to detect and segment devices places a heavy demand on all too finite and increasingly stretched resources.
During 2020, MNOs focused their efforts on detecting and planning IoT business cases. In 2021, they started to implement differentiated monetization strategies. TOMIA’s IoT Rate solution allows planning and activation of agreements suited for the IoT global business, not solely based on usage, but other models such as a surcharge per device. The solution automatically segments the traffic from permanent roaming devices according to the rules defined on the contract agreement across the rating engine. These segments are defined by the user, which enables a higher level of efficiency and low maintenance as it resolves the complexity of system integration. The agreements support flexible invoicing period (multi-year) and any settlement process (TAP, BCE or file-based).

Private LTE/5G Networks Extension

Private LTE/5G networks are small-scale, standalone cellular networks. They offer higher bandwidth, lower latency, and enhanced indoor/outdoor coverage, to connect a fast-growing number of devices and capture exponential amounts of data, from the edge to the cloud. From smart factories to hospitals, campuses, mines, and secure facilities such as power plants, military bases, ports, and airports, analysts predict massive development of private LTE and 5G networks in the years to come to support, industrial innovation and digital transformation.

By design, these private wireless networks are however not interconnected to mobile operators’ public radio networks which may limit their adoption and potential. Today, organizations expect full control over their connectivity and independence from mobile carriers. They look for secure, fail-safe, globally scalable solutions that can enable any mobility use case beyond borders, at a reasonable cost. According to OMDIA’s latest Private LTE and 5G Network Enterprise Survey Insight (October 2021), 75% of enterprises want hybrid public-private 5G solutions.

Transatel’s Private Mobile Networks Extension solution enables a single SIM card to access both private LTE/5G networks and worldwide coverage of public cellular networks across 180+ destinations. Key benefits of this technology include service continuity across networks and geographies for moving assets as well as secure backup connectivity for business-critical applications (no downtime).

The full potential of IoT can only be realised by user trust. Trust can only be achieved by comprehensive security. ZARIOT was conceived with the goal of providing a solely IoT-focused cellular connectivity solution with premium security, fully protecting data and devices on mobile network infrastructure. Having achieved this, ambition has expanded to focus on the final IoT solution security. ZARIOT now also provides tamperproof end-to-end encryption of all device data, as well as a patented Anti-IMSI catcher which protects devices from rogue base stations for previous generations supporting the standards work in 5G. ZARIOT continues to innovate to deliver unrivalled flexibility, support and security for the lifetime of cellular IoT projects.
