Australian connected device firm Digital Matter is supplying more than 11,000 battery-powered GPS tracking devices so Xperanti IoT can deliver affordable asset tracking in Malaysia on the Sigfox LPWAN.
 
The battery powered trackers are are used in more than 100 countries around the world to help businesses monitor and optimise non-powered assets and improve utilisation. In addition to location visibility, the Oyster Sigfox devices provide theft prevention and recovery, enable preventative maintenance planning, and more.
 
Working with Xperanti, Air Asia is using the devices at Kuala Lumpur International Airport for ground support equipment (GSE) management, ensuring on-time-performance requirements are met by optimising the use of non-powered aviation assets. Xperanti is also using the same devices for fleet management, and trailer and livestock tracking.
 
"The Oyster's industrial-grade housing, configurable firmware for tracking various asset types and behaviour, and the highly accurate global positioning module make it the perfect device for tracking a wide range of non-powered assets," said Ashokan Nair, vice president at Xperanti. "For partners and clients to have access to reliable, sustainable and scalable tracking that consumes low battery power is a great addition to the market."
 
Founded in 2001, Digital Matter develops both GPS tracking devices and IoT sensors.
 
Xperanti is Malaysia's first nationwide IoT network provider and offers IoT network services through exclusive access to Sigfox's technology. It delivers connected services for manufacturing, transportation and logistics, utilities, agriculture, and smart city applications.
