Combined Technology Empowers Enterprise Managers and Site Operators To Easily, Quickly, and Cost-Effectively Benefit from Industry 4.0.
Kerlink, a specialist in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Senzary, an industrial IoT service provider for end-to-end industrial solutions, today announced Kerlink’s hardware and software connectivity offers and Senzary’s IoTLogIQ platform are available in a single solution.
Senzary’s secure IoTLogIQ platform provides scalable, on-demand, real-time data processing, with advanced analytics, AI-enabled machine learning, and anomaly-detection solutions to help users plan and deploy their digital-transformation projects quickly and cost effectively.
Kerlink provides end-to-end connectivity solutions for designing, deploying, and operating public & private low-power/wide-area (LPWA) IoT networks. Its comprehensive product portfolio includes industrial-grade network equipment, best-of-breed network core, operations & management software, value-added applications, and expert professional services.
The combination of Kerlink’s Wanesy Management Center and Wirnet indoor/outdoor LoRaWAN® gateways with Senzary’s technology and IoTLogIQ’s end-to-end services provides the necessary elements for clients looking for a turnkey, professional solution, allowing them to focus on their business processes, and not on the technology.
“Our partnership provides integrators and enterprise customers with a complete solution, from sensors and gateways to an IoT platform, analytics, and machine learning, as a single, on-demand solution that can be deployed as cloud-based, edge-based, or a hybrid system,” said Josic Thepaut, sales manager Americas at Kerlink.
“Upon installation, site owners and enterprise managers can quickly achieve maximum visibility into their equipment or processes, along with receiving predictive failure alarms and utilization reports, by simply adding more sensors over time.”
Senzary’s IoTLogIQ platform thus enables plug-and-play solutions that solve every day industrial problems and tasks. These include predictive maintenance with RotaryIQ, energy management with PowerIQ, and water management with WaterIQ. Its end-to-end integration and pre-designed solutions allow for quick-to-market applications and pilots, enabling users to cost effectively embrace the full potential of industry 4.0 solutions.
“Industry 4.0 still has significant barriers, most of which are centered around sensors connecting to the network, secure communication, aggregated management, and then what to do with all this generated data,” said Senzary CEO Eric Schummer. “Organizations realize that for them to stay competitive, their equipment must become more connected to their businesses. Senzary’s IoTLogIQ and Kerlink’s connectivity technology working together pave the way for enterprise managers and site operators to have easier, quicker, and more cost-effective access to the reality of industry 4.0.”
Immediate benefits include aggregated information for operations, early warning of equipment failure, and timely reaction to critical events. These benefits increase companies’ ability to plan for and reduce downtime more effectively and manage the supply chain intelligently based on anticipated preventive maintenance, to avoid costly repairs.
“The direct benefits are increased productivity, positive EBITDA contributions, and improved on-site safety, among many others,” Schummer said.
