Kerlink and ClearBlade, an IoT-platform and edge-computing software company, have unveiled an asset monitoring solution that combines gateways and device management, edge-application, LoRaWAN network-management, and IoT-platform capabilities.

Designed to be secure, flexible, zero-touch and easily deployed the out-of-the-box solution is intended for cities, agribusinesses, transport companies and businesses looking for a ROI by preventing theft, loss and damage of critical, high-value assets.

Kerlink provides public and private LoRaWAN IoT network owners with a comprehensive product portfolio of industrial-grade equipment, network core, operations and management software and value-added applications with over 120,000 installations in 69 countries in all the primary IoT verticals.

The partnership with ClearBlade will integrate Kerlink’s Wirnet iStation, Wirnet iBTS, Wirnet iBTS Compact, Wirnet iFemtoCell and Wirnet iFemtoCell Evolution with ClearBlade’s Edge Platform.

ClearBlade’s fully scalable, secure, flexible and autonomous IoT Edge Platform enables companies to take in, then analyse, adapt and act on data in real time and at extreme scale.

The platform operates consistently across edge, cloud and on-premises environments and ClearBlade’s out-of-the-box, asset-tracking and monitoring solution features real-time deployment and flexible operation support. The company’s zero-touch feature ensures remote updating and configuration of network software.

The platform is future proof for new architectures, devices, protocols, enterprise integrations and cloud services. Its open-standards-based edge platform maximizes use of Kerlink’s Wirnet iSerie Gateways.

“As Kerlink continues its expansion in the US market, this joint solution will demonstrate the flexibility of the company’s robust stations to ensure maximum performance in any size of smart-city or smart-agriculture tracking or monitoring application,” said Carlos Briceño, vice president Kerlink Americas. “These networks will reliably deliver critical data from edge devices to the operations centres of network owners, and allow them to more efficiently track and protect high-value assets.”
