Actility launches end-to-end IoT Starter Kits on ThingPark Market

Paris, 28 October 2020

Actility continues its effort to accelerate adoption of the industrial IoT, by providing its customers with turnkey vertical solutions they can quickly deploy on their sites to address concrete business problems. Specifically, Actility launches a series of Starter Kits to help experience how LoRaWAN® allows industries connect their physical assets and transform field data into actionable insights.

Building complete end-to-end solutions requires combining different offers and expertise from us and our partners: appropriate devices with the right application and, of course, with adapted connectivity options.

Bringing such end-to-end IoT solutions to the market is critical for the common success of Actility and its partners: therefore, Actility launched the Actility Solutions Ignite Program, addressing our huge and growing partner ecosystem. This program aims at identifying, qualifying and selling relevant IoT solutions on major IoT verticals in order to accelerate industrial IoT adoption.

Actility Solutions Ignite Program acts as a business accelerator, providing solutions partner with higher visibility and various go-to-market options, leveraging a wide community of 50+ service provider, 70+ sales channels, and 100s of enterprise customers.

For example, solution providers can rapidly and inexpensively make their applications and devices available over any ThingPark-powered network, via ThingPark Exchange peering hub. ThingPark Market exposes successful solutions from all over the world, available in a few clicks with pre-negotiated purchase contracts and allows you to reach a focused IoT audience over 161 countries.

If you are interested in building end-to-end IoT Solutions with Actility, you are invited to join us through our solutions partner page.

IoT Solutions you can already find on ThingPark Market

Actility has, up to the date, released three different Starter Kits aimed to solve different problems. Firstly, we have the launch of the Proximity Detection & Contact Tracing Starter Kit, which combines a WMW application together with Abeeway low-power multi-technology trackers on a ThingPark powered LoRaWAN infrastructure. This solution helps enterprise ensure the continuity of their business by enforcing the application of proximity policies across offices, factory floors or construction sites.

The Proximity Alert & Monitoring is accomplished by immediately alerting employees when distancing is not respected and keeps track of contacts to help back-trace contamination chains. The kit also helps employees to respect density enforcement in shared areas (e.g. rest & food areas, meeting rooms) and zoning enforcement alerting workers when they step out of their assigned zones to limit virus propagation and notifying them in case of policy violation. The Proximity Detection & Contact Tracing Starter Kit also helps to create disinfection scheduling to chart disinfection efficiently based on asset usage & workspace occupancy and keeps track of disinfection campaigns. Secondly, we can find the ThingPark – LoRaWAN Connectivity Indoor Evaluation Kit. This kit is the easiest way to start your LoRaWAN journey on ThingPark, allowing to create your private LoRaWAN networks in no time with ThingPark.

Provided with a ready to connect LoRaWAN gateway, and an Abeeway Micro Tracker, it is easy to start experiencing LoRaWAN great coverage & low power. Abeeway Micro Tracker can be used as an asset tracker, a smart button or a LoRaWAN field test device, allowing to experiment the potential of our technology in various situations.

This kit allows to easily set up proof of concepts with ThingPark Community on which you can connect up to 3 LoRaWAN gateways and up to 50 devices at no cost. As an alternative, ThingPark Enterprise Discovery – available on AWS Marketplace – provides you with freemium approach to scale your project with confidence as you can easily transition from PoC to production by subscribing to Actility Support services or upgrading to ThingPark Enterprise. Thirdly, Actility has launched the ThingPark Location Low-Power Asset Tracking Evaluation Kit for AWS IoT. Sub-optimal usage of assets drastically slows down business operations and usually leads to oversized fleets which significantly increase operating costs. With this kit, these inefficiencies can be solved while keeping an eye on the assets, protecting valuable assets against misplacement, loss or theft and adapting maintenance processes to actual asset usages.

Our ThingPark Location Low-Power Asset Tracking Evaluation Kit, build on top of AWS IoT Cloud Services, is composed of ready to connect hardware and application to quickly evaluate the potential of LoRaWAN technology to power asset tracking application with both indoor and outdoor visibility. .

Fleet managers, who need a wireless solution with a useful battery life can easily connect the kit to their assets. These will be tracked allowing theft detection based on movement and geofencing. The kit will also optimizes use and maintenance of equipment by detecting underutilized machinery and vehicles and avoiding unnecessary rental costs, accomplished by detecting the exact location of assets and their use frequency.
