French LoRa specialist Kerlink and industrial IoT provider Senzary have combined offerings to provide a bundled LoRaWAN IoT solution for industrial analytics and maintenance.

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 are designed for clients looking for a turnkey solution.

Benefits include aggregated information for operations, early warning of equipment failure, and timely reaction to critical events. These features aim to 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.

“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 utilisation reports, by simply adding more sensors over time.”

“Industry 4.0 still has significant barriers, most of which are centred 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. “Organisations realise 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.”

“The direct benefits are increased productivity, positive EBITDA contributions, and improved on-site safety, among many others,” Schummer said.

Senzary’s secure IoTLogIQ platform provides scalable, on-demand, real-time data processing, with analytics, AI-enabled machine learning, and anomaly-detection solutions to help users plan and deploy their digital-transformation projects quickly and cost effectively.
