Kerlink, IoT America target rural areas in the US with new IoT partnership
IoT America designs solutions for precision agriculture, livestock management and infrastructure monitoring
French internet of things (IoT) specialist Kerlink and Internet of Things America (IoT America), a U.S. company dedicated to deploying IoT solutions across rural America, have recently teamed up to enable the deployment of IoT in rural business across the U.S. market.
As part of the joint effort, IoT America is creating a practice with strategic advisors who are focused on helping its customers change the way they work across their entire organization, from implementing location functions such as assets, facilities, field services and safety, to improving R&D, inventory management and back-office systems.
Kerlink and IoT America will also collaborate on the development of a new service offering which will help clients discover new possibilities within their industries and quickly develop LoRaWAN solutions through proven methods, benefiting from industrial-grade and future-proof IoT dedicated connectivity, the partners said.
“IoT America was founded to deliver the benefits of advanced technologies, connectivity and solutions to rural America,” said Jeff Klaumann, Internet of Things America CTO. “We are focused on addressing the needs of growers, producers, agricultural businesses and small towns. Our clients recognize the power of technology in optimizing their operations, which has enabled new distribution opportunities for our solution partners.”
IoT America designs, installs and manages wireless connectivity and value-added solutions for precision agriculture, livestock management, infrastructure monitoring and smart-town applications, to help growers, ranchers, towns and businesses save time and money, boost productivity, increase farm yields and conserve valuable natural resources.
IoT America said it is relying on Kerlink’s outdoor Wirnet Stations and Wirnet iBTS Compact LoRaWAN gateways, indoor Wirnet iFemtoCell gateways, and the company’s core network and advanced-operations suite, Wanesy Management Center.
“IoT America created a new consumption model that efficiently brings the Internet of Things directly to the vast rural areas of the United States and allows agriculture producers, small businesses and municipalities to quickly rollout customized networks and actionable field solutions,” said Yannick Delibie, Kerlink CTIO and CEO of Kerlink Inc., the company’s U.S. subsidiary. “Kerlink brings cost-efficient, mature and performant low-power wide-area connectivity for solution providers like IoT America to deploy and manage a growing number of smart-agriculture and smart-town use cases. These include crop, soil and weather analytics, livestock monitoring, asset and building management, metering and remote smoke, gas and fire alerting.”
