- The battery life of wireless devices is insufficient for many IoT applications, leading to overly frequent recharge cycles, limited connectivity, and bulky batteries or costly maintenance. In addition, long latency makes wireless inadequate in applications requiring real-time communications.
- Many customers require more intelligence, tracking, control and analytics of their equipment and devices, however, installation and cost can be very prohibitive. This makes the decision to install IoT tags or sensors a difficult one.
- RFID can be a low-power solution, but its usability is limited.
- Customers need a low cost solution for tracking and maintaining on-site equipment that is easy to install like RFID (no-batteries) but can provide more intelligence.
