Wirepas and INTRANAV join forces
to offer massive scale real-time asset tracking
Eschborn – Germany / Tampere – Finland, 01.10.2020
Devices featuring Wirepas Mesh technology can now be integrated into the INTRANAV.IO real-time location (RLTS) IoT platform. This enables companies to track and trace reliable, as well as cost-efficiently, thousands of moving or stationary assets, transport vehicles, and people (workforce safety) indoor and outdoor in real-time via the digital twin.
Wirepas and INTRANAV have joined forces to enable unique, massive scale asset tracking solutions. Integrated into battery-powered devices, the Wirepas Mesh technology allows the devices to autonomously create and maintain an ultra-reliable, massive-scale wireless network for a meter-accurate indoor and outdoor localization and inventory. By integrating location data from these devices into the INTRANAV.IO RTLS platform companies can visualize, automate and manage moving or stationary assets, transport vehicles and people (workforce safety) indoor and outdoor in real-time or in any defined time period. Furthermore, with the INTRALYTICS analysis tool customers can optimize their transport-, material- and workflow processes.
“INTRANAV is pleased to welcome Wirepas as a global partner. In addition to the INTRANAV North America office, this partnership will further expand our business for our globally operating customers,” said Andreas Radix, CEO of INTRANAV.
Wirepas Mesh is an IoT connectivity software that enables wireless networking on a massive scale. It is the only connectivity technology unfailingly supporting an unlimited number of devices in a single, dense network. Integrated into any device Wirepas Mesh allows the devices to create and maintain a reliable, self-healing network by themselves, without any operator. As every device works as a possible router – no cables, scanners or other network infrastructure needed – an installation is possible in a few hours and can be done by anyone. The intelligence of the network also results in a low power consumption, allowing small battery-sizes and a battery life of up to 5-10 years.
Through the integration of INTRANAV.IO, Wirepas customers are now able to manage their real-time data via the INTRANAV RTLS platform and connect their real-time and sensor data as well to other systems such as SAP EWM / S4/HANA, PowerBI (and others) what finally makes smart operations in factories, warehouse and elsewhere possible. Hereby processes such as production, material flow, transport tracking, health, and safety environment solutions as well as partial automation of manufacturing processes are enabled and can now be secured as well as sustainably optimized.
“With the Wirepas partnership INTRANAV continuously expands its central RTLS platform as a multi-technology platform,” says Gonzalo Ibarra Co-Founder & Managing Director of IntraNav GmbH. As a real-time location and sensor data service provider, INTRANAV uses the generated real-time location and sensor data to set the foundation for all smart factory and digital supply chain applications planned and implemented on future digital IoT platforms. INTRANAV.IO is a flexible software suite for the industrial cloud or complex, on-premise enterprise architectures and thus a key element for future digital platforms. The architecture based on microservices offers very high scalability. “The digital market demands integrated RTLS overall solutions as a strategic business platform, the joint partnership INTRANAV with Wirepas emphasizes this development,” says Ersan Günes, Co-Founder & CTO of IntraNav GmbH.
“Wirepas is proud to join forces with INTRANAV to meet the growing requirements of industries for cost savings and improved processes. Together we will enable asset tracking for applications where it has been neither economically nor technically feasible until today. With the complementing INTRANAV technology portfolio and the strengthened ecosystem, Wirepas shares INTRANAV’s aspiration to solve the demanding IoT challenges of our common customers,” says Thomas Weisshaupt, Business owner D-A-CH at Wirepas.
Wirepas and INTRANAV will exhibit with a joint booth together with their device partner ELA INNOVATION at the “RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2020” fair in Darmstadt 27-28 October. The companies will demonstrate RTLS uses cases through a live demo using Wirepas connectivity, ELA devicesand the INTRANAV.IO platform.
Wirepas is a leading IoT connectivity company focused on massive scale, low power IoT networks. Together with its ecosystem it boosts efficiency through asset tracking, smart logistics, smart lighting and diverse smart meters. Wirepas Mesh, a unique IoT connectivity software, is the only technology that allows an unlimited number of devices, even battery-powered, to create a network. This mesh network can be sparse or extremely dense, with up to a thousand devices in a cubic meter. Wirepas serves customers across the world with offices in Australia, Brazil, Germany, Finland, France, India, South Korea and the United States.
INTRANAV is a German Real-Time Location & Sensor Data Service Provider for industrial platforms for the integration of the Artificial Digital Twin. With the digitization and allocation of real-time position data of industrial goods and transport vehicles with centimeter accuracy, the INTRANAV RTLS IoT platform contributes to a significant increase in efficiency and process reliability through the automation of logistics and production processes, such as Auto-ID solutions, paperless factory, AGV management, vehicle navigation, real-time material flow and shop floor management, and thus to the realization of the SMART factory or DIGITAL supply chain. In addition to real-time data applications for the Digital Twin, INTRANAV also provides SMART real-time location analyses from one platform suite, enabling companies to identify significant process optimizations and make data-based decisions. Customers and partners of INTRANAV are global companies such as Volkswagen, Daimler, SAP and DB Schenker.
