Partners Demonstration Technology
AT&T LTE-M Smart Parking Meter
Smart Parking Payment System: The patented IPS Smart Meter retrofits into current on-street parking meter housings, and offers multiple payment options (coins, credit/debit card, smart card, tokens, pay-by-phone, and optional NFC/contactless payment)
Asset Tracking and Environmental Monitoring Using LTE-M
BeWhere’s low-cost and sophisticated trackers report sensors data and GPS location to the BeWhere back end, using LTE-M or NB-IoT connectivity. In less than 8 months, BeWhere has deployed over 55,000 trackers for transportation, logistics, smart cities, smart agriculture and other various use cases; displaying all of this data into the BeWhere’s cloud-based device management and analytics platform; as well as into third-party’s software via a simple API integration.
G+D Mobile Security NB-IoT SIM-based E2E Security
G+D’s secure end-to-end NB-IoT data protection solution is independent of device chipsets that would raise the bill-of-material (BOM) of the cost-sensitive edge devices. This low-dependency solution is a fast and low-cost way to introduce IoT security without having to redesigning existing IoT devices. This solution has been shortlisted for the Global Telecom Award in the category “Security Solution of the Year”.
