This customer is based in Ireland and are developers of wireless monitoring solutions using their own range of monitoring sensors. The idea behind their solutions is to create a mesh or network of low power wireless sensors which are linked to a central node or gateway for onward transmission. The customer’s core capability is the sensors and their wireless connectivity with the central node and so they wanted us to develop technology as the link from the node to the outside world. The customer provides solutions to data centres, warehouses and monitoring in food processing.
The customer has dedicated much of their time to provision of components and communication at the front end of their systems and had used an off the shelf cellular solution to ‘pass-through’ the data they gathered. They were looking for a product that could be configured easily to give them more power over the data gathered. They were also looking for flexibility in the communication options which could be used in the chosen solution.
