New satellite gateway for wireless sensors now available
The young Berlin company VIRTENIO, a former partner of the 'Intelligent Container' project provides now a battery driven gateway to connect wireless sensor networks over an iridium satellite link.
This device makes it possible to transfer data of sensor nodes - packed to sensitive cargo e.g. in ocean container - in real-time to the cloud, even outside the range of land-based cellular networks.
The PreonGate Iridium Gateway is part of VIRTENIO’s wireless complete solution toolkit and can be used on vessel ships or remote locations nearly 2 months transmitting serveral times a day without recharging.
The Gateway collects and uploads data wirelessly from up to 50 multi-sensor-cubes to the web platform.
Logistic companies or OEMs can purchase the device as part of the complete solution starter-kits. The satellite gateway and the starter-kits will be presented by VIRTENIO at Hannover Messe (24th-28th of April) and Transport Logistic (9th-12th of Mai) in Munich.
