With LPWA, and Sigfox in particular, we are in the business of transforming the logistics sector. It is now affordable to track assets down to the pallets because of the low-cost and low-power consumption properties of the technology. A nationwide coverage is also essential and customers who subscribe to our network are essentially subscribing to a global network which allows them to track assets worldwide.
Replenishment is another big use case that has emerged with LPWA. The UnaBell – a smart button that was recently launched by UnaBiz at the Mobile World Congress is an All-in-One solution that collapse and streamline consumer journeys with a push of a button.
Designed to work right-out-of-the-box, it allows businesses to connect with their customers instantaneously with a push of a button. The smart button enhances overall brand recall, customer loyalty and gather insights to purchasing patterns of products and services, a valuable marketing tool for all businesses.
While it’s hard to name only 3 trends, utilities would probably be the third. Sigfox is the only communication protocol enabling to predict the battery life of a device. It’s a very powerful value proposition when it comes to anticipating the maintenance of these meters 15 years later.
