To learn how to capitalize on actionable data for edge to cloud Asset Tracking (ASTRA) and Intelligence Platforms, Klika will be demonstrating its solution utilizing NB-IoT and CoAP powered by AWS. Visit embedded world 2023, (Hall 4, Booth 550) to see the ecosystems moving you to the next-generation of data analytics.

Building an open and scalable asset tracking and intelligence platform is harder than it looks.

Globally, organizations are prioritizing the integration of IoT technologies and services into their environments. Often this is done to automate manual processes and get real-time asset tracking data, intelligence, and performance insights for your supply chain needs.

Despite their best efforts, many enterprises experience problems managing and maintaining their fleets of devices, connecting remote sensors and smart devices to the cloud environment securely and cost effectively. This, in turn, leads to incomplete asset tracking data, and can expose the shortcomings of vendor lock-in, based on proprietary trackers, expensive connectivity and platform being used.

This fully "open" system from Klika Tech, 1NCE, and devices from Sercomm and Nordic allows you to select your preferred asset tracker and seamlessly integrate it into your exiting platform. You also have the option of working with Klika Tech to develop and implement a customized version of their ASTRA platform tailored to meet your current and future needs cost effectively.

Optimize asset tracking and intelligence investments with the joint solution from Klika Tech, 1NCE, Sercomm, Nordic, and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Using technologies such as Narrow-Band IoT (NB-IoT) and CoAP, Klika Tech integrates Sercomm trackers as well as Nordic nRF9160 series modules to seamlessly receive and store device data on AWS via the MQTT and CoAP protocols using a message broker from 1NCE. Plus, Klika Tech leverages advanced capabilities such as data analytics and visualization to drive unprecedented business insights.
