Smart Logistics depends on reliable, real-time data about the location and status of assets within an environment.
Today, advances in Bluetooth Low-Energy devices and tags are reshaping traditional methods of logistics asset tracking, such as RFID. Companies are finding new ways to extend, or replace, their existing systems with BLE-based solutions – often at a fraction of the operating cost.
However, implementing these new smart logistics solutions requires a secure an scalable edge infrastructure – providing the right mix of wireless connectivity, edge computing, and cloud integration.
That’s where Rigado comes in.
We provide edge infrastructure for large-scale smart logistics solutions.
Build your Smart Logistics solution on Rigado’s Cascade Edge-as-a-Service platform and create a secure data pipeline from IoT sensors to your cloud.
|Example Sensor Types:||Typical Edge Applications:|
|Access Sensor & Control||Secure Access Control & Notification|
|Asset Tag/Beacon/Sensor||Inventory Monitoring & Notifications|
|Maintenance Sensor||Supply & Clean-up Notification|
|Comfort Sensor||Building Controls Integration|
|Desk/Occupancy Sensor||Smart Lighting|
Establishing a secure and scalable edge connectivity is complex – especially one that can support the tracking of thousands – or tens of thousands – of assets within a space. Many systems integrators and solutions providers would rather focus on the business value and ROI their enterprise applications can deliver, rather than on the edge infrastructure and wireless device connectivity required to gather the data they need.
For these reasons, Smart Logistics solution providers choose to partner with Rigado, leveraging our Cascade infrastructure as the foundation of their edge connectivity and computing.
Watch our product overview video to see how Cascade Edge-as-a-Service provides System Integrators and Solution Providers with secure edge computing, a containerized application environment, scalable management tools and a variety of connectivity options.
All in a simple ‘Edge-as-a-Service’ monthly subscription.
Cascade Edge-as-a-Service provides all the elements required for a secure and scalable edge infrastructure for Smart Logistics, including:
Flexible IoT Connectivity – wide range of options for both building end-devices (Bluetooth, Thread, Zigbee) and upstream cloud data connections (Ethernet with PoE, Wi-Fi, LTE).
Edge Computing – Our gateways run Ubuntu Core for simple container management and the ability to easily deploy, run and update multiple smart office applications on a single gateway.
Simple monitoring and management – Monitor connectivity and performance of your gateways, and easily deploy edge application updates via our cloud interface, or use the included API with your DevOps tools.
Security at Scale – Certified security that starts at the point of manufacturing and extends to in-the-field patches as new threats and exploits emerge, keeping building facilities secure.
Cascade combines flexible connectivity and edge computing to bring key benefits to our partners building commercial IoT solutions:
