Actility, a world leader in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) industrial-grade connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), announces the availability of its LoRaWAN® on-demand private network management solution for enterprise IoT networks – ThingPark Enterprise™ – in AWS Marketplace, providing a fast, easy and secure way for any enterprise to accelerate their Industry 4.0 digitization projects leveraging LPWA networks technology.
The Journey to Extracting Insights From IoT Devices Made Simple
Companies and organizations of all sizes can now quickly launch their LoRaWAN® projects from AWS Marketplace in a cost-effective way, taking advantage of Actility’s industrial-grade technology, tailored for enterprises. With ThingPark Enterprise, customers can easily deploy and manage seamless wireless IoT networks across multiple sites and countries, keep digital twins of their sensors with AWS IoT Core, and from there leverage additional Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT services to develop modern cloud IoT applications to drive meaningful business outcomes.
Going wireless eliminates the costs and delays associated to wiring, one of the roadblocks for industrial digitization. The rich LoRaWAN® sensor ecosystem provides devices for a large variety of uses cases, all sharing the same horizontal network infrastructure. Even traditional wired protocols such as ModBus® can now go wireless. Sharing infrastructure costs across use cases further reduces the connectivity overheads and the improved Return-on-Investment (RoI) makes it possible to massively extend the scope of digitization.
The solution is provided by Actility as a fully managed georedundant SaaS service with 365×24/7 monitoring, ensuring clear, all-inclusive, cost structure, and no management overheads, as pricing already includes High Availability and seamless platform upgrades.
Thingpark Multiplying Benefits With AWS
LoRaWAN® is one of the leading standards of the Industrial Internet of Things. Leveraging its long-range, low power capabilities and vibrant ecosystem of sensors & applications, LoRaWAN® is the ideal networking technology for Smart Cities, Industry 4.0, Utilities, Building management, or Smart Agriculture. Unlike wired or meshed radio networks that are optimized for fixed assets, LoRaWAN® offers a pervasive, no dead-zone indoor and outdoor coverage that is a perfect fit for human safety and security, or asset management.
IoT platforms are now ready for digital twin projects and process optimization but linking them to the physical world and acquiring data remains a bottleneck. AWS IoT services today already offer customers the ability to onboard, manage, analyze, and act on data from IP connected devices including cellular, Ethernet, WiFi, etc. But with the advent of modern LPWAN technology such as LoRaWAN®, the concept of on-demand private wireless IoT networks emerged. It is now possible to easily add long-range, low power IoT devices to any campus or city, and easily ingest, control, manage and act on data from these devices all within AWS IoT Core.
Actility has collaborated with AWS to create a Cloud Formation Template (CFT) enabling one-click instantiation of AWS IoT Core configuration in a customer’s AWS account. Digital twins for the physical sensors, AWS IoT “Things” are automatically created as LoRaWAN® devices are added, making bidirectional communication with any application across AWS instant and seamless.
“Customers can now easily harness the power of LoRaWAN by setting up their own private network in a matter of hours, and combine AWS’s scalable, on-demand capabilities with on-demand, industrial-grade LPWAN networking and ready-to-go solutions.”Olivier Hersent, CEO at Actility
AWS Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Web Day
Please join us on June 24th at the AWS Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Day, an online virtual event hosted by AWS, to learn more about Actility LoRaWAN solutions integrated with AWS IoT. Specifically, don’t miss the session “Using LoRaWAN for IIoT Applications” at 11:15 AM – 11:45 AM, explaining the supply chain optimization use case implemented at a Volvo factory presented by Olivier Hersent, CEO et Actility, Julien Bertolini, IoT Specialist at Volvo Group and Karthik Ranjan, Senior Partner Development Manager, OEM, at AWS.
On this occasion, Actility will introduce the first vertical use-case starter packs to the market. One of them is a solution for fused indoor & outdoor geolocation, a game-changer for many of the challenges faced in most enterprises, from social distancing policies to visitor tracking, asset management, or usage monitoring.
