Thanks to a standard JSON/REST push/pull API all status and location data generated can either be directly published into third party systems (CRM, ERP) or Favendo’s Asset Tracking Viewer can be used to search and find assets. In addition, Favendo is also a partner of Quuppa and is experienced in planning and installing AoA infrastructures. Being a partner of both Quuppa and Actility, which have now also entered a technological partnership with each other for high-precision indoor outdoor tracking, Favendo delivers unique added value to its customers in terms of hybrid, scalable RTLS solutions.

On the one hand, Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise platform is a LoRaWAN IoT connectivity management platform that helps customers build network infrastructure by managing LoRaWAN gateways, add new LoRaWAN devices, monitor network operations, and control the flow of data to application servers.

On the other hand,  Abeeway long autonomy devices allow continuous usage for months and years thanks to LoRaWAN® connectivity. The devices work both indoors and outdoors thanks to their multi-technology geolocation system, integrating GPS, Abeeway’s patented Low-power GPS, WiFi Sniffing, Bluetooth Low Energy & Bluetooth LE Beaconing feature for precise indoor tracking.

Abeeway devices combine cutting-edge location technologies, robust hardware, a meticulous selection of high-performing low-power chipsets and the no-compromise optimization of software. This allows flexible behavior, highly responsive to changing needs, and guaranteeing asset and people location in various coverage scenarios.

In addition, Favendo’s open API allows you to feed location data from the Thingpark Location Engine into Favendo’s Asset Tracking Viewer (ATV) to locate your tagged assets on the map. The ATV is an easy-to-use front-end solution that helps you find and locate assets indoors and out, regardless of any system or software. Thanks to the open API, the location data can also be integrated with any third-party applications, if necessary.
