French company Adveez, a LoRa Alliance adopter member, will begin shipping its ruggedised LoRaWan tracking module in North America in October for demanding outdoor asset tracking applications, especially in airports.
 
"We’re excited to extend our reach to the USA and Canada with a mainstream LoRaWan offering," said Karim Ben Dhia, Adveez founder and CEO. “Growing coverage of LoRaWan carriers will support the proliferation of our advanced technology.”
 
Specifications include movement-triggered GPS-based location reporting, industrial-grade housing, three-year battery life and flexible mounting options. Initial LoRaWan carrier support will include Comcast, Senet and Eleven-X.
 
“Our LoRaWan tracking module represents the culmination of our years of experience with LoRa, which started with one of the first customer implementations of a private LoRa network in Europe in 2012,” Ben Dhia said.
 
Initial product demand is from existing airport operations customers, with additional interest coming from sea ports, municipalities, cargo and shipping logistics operations.
 
Adveez IoT products address data capture needs to improve business operational costs and worker safety. Ground-up hardware and software designs are purpose-built to optimise product performance, capability and cost.
 
The company designs and manufactures data capture, and hands-free access control hardware and software used in asset tracking and security, worker and resident safety, and commercial security. Adveez is headquartered in Toulouse, France, with an office in Phoenix, Arizona.
