A container level monitoring system is a method of observation that takes into account the entire contents of a shipping container, from its outermost layer to the materials within. Inadequate or nonexistent monitoring can have negative consequences for both businesses and consumers, including wastefulness, lessened production efficiency and erroneous decisions about product storage and shipment. IOT systems may offer an advantage over Low Power WAN communications in terms of their ability to monitor large numbers of containers simultaneously.
LPWAN SIMPLE ARCHITECTURE
WHY IOT OVER LPWAN?
LPWAN (Low Power Wide-Area Network) is an advantageous networking solution due to its low energy consumption and simple installation process.
LPWAN uses the ISM frequency spectrum to provide a low-power wide area network. The use of this frequency band allows LPWAN systems to be smaller, faster and more reliable than traditional narrowband networks.
This type of network is perfect for massive spaces such as cities, schools, hospitals and offices that have a high demand for data collection. The advantages of LPWAN extend to greater productivity and improved efficacy from the capacity to link more devices concurrently. Additionally, costs associated with linking units over a broad area network are minimized-- leading to shorter setup times and lower monthly bills overall. LPWAN technology offers a range of advantages, including minimal power consumption and prolonged battery life as well as decreased upkeep. Additionally, it facilitates the logging of data for inspection purposes while also enabling swift access to information in case of any problems with the system. Furthermore, users will be notified if preset parameters are exceeded.
