Clovity | July 12, 2022
San Francisco Bay Area based Clovity has partnered with Colorado based company EUCAST Global in a strategic move that will align the private network capabilities of EUCAST and their steadfast, reliable and low latency 5G/CBRS radio base stations with Clovity's highly capable IoT software platform. The end result is an 'IoT network in a box'. A fully deployable private network capability coupled with the software that can bring forward smart devices and aggregated data that is truly at the edge of a network.
"This new strategic partnership will re-shape how we go to market with many of our industrial and smart city clients as a start. We are already seeing the synergies in providing a turn-key solution that meets the needs of clients wanting to manage their smart devices remotely by placing them onto a network that is both secure and highly scalable. Our IoT software, called CSensorNet, reads data from these devices and can display analytics right from the network using our artificial intelligence and edge component of our IoT application."
Chief Strategy Officer, Chris Medina
Medina further commented that, "Clients are focused on security of their network and the devices that provide critical information. This is not just on the infrastructure but also data that can be used to make real time decisions and even facilitate machine learning. More and more companies are moving to Private Networks and deploying them to capture the CBRS spectrum as a cost savings compared to big telco infrastructure and costly cellular usage fees."
The global private 5G network market size was valued at USD 1.38 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47.5% from 2022 to 2030 and the IoT market is expected to grow by USD 421.28 billion at a CAGR of 32.95% as per the latest market report by Technavio and Grandview researchers. The EUCAST and Clovity partnership seeks to capitalize on this and begin to revolutionize an already disruptive industry.

Hanshow | June 03, 2022
European merchants were among the first in the world to use electronic shelf labels (ESLs) to cut costs and lay the groundwork for retail digitization. The new IoT platform All-Star is being released and introduced by digital solutions provider Hanshow (EuroCIS booth - 9 D13) at this week's EuroCIS 2022 trade show, ready to drive Europe's brick-and-mortar retail into a new era of efficiency and profitability.
Hanshow has been a significant driver of this transition since entering the European market in 2016, with approximately 100 million ESLs installed across the continent. Hanshow is showcasing a variety of new solutions at EuroCIS 2022, ranging from AI-powered shelf monitoring to self-checkout trolleys and in-store marketing, and is continually evolving the smart shops of the future.
The IoT platform All-Star, which focuses on the retail industry and is built expressly to assist merchants extend and update their digitalization, is one of the latest innovations showcased by Hanshow at EuroCIS. All-Star provides one-stop IoT solutions ranging from IoT device management to digital operations upgrades, empowering retail customers to quickly establish IoT equipment management capabilities and be able to flexibly build business applications and integrate customized business connections to boost operation efficiency of smart stores further and elevate customer in-store experience.
The AllStar platform serves as an integrated system for managing a store's full digital devices, with SaaS and private deployment options that offer unified user authentication and third-party application access integration via an open API based on HTTP. As a result, one of its key product innovations is to address the new challenges posed by the growing number of IoT devices, all of which operate on different networks and communicate using different transmission signals, as a single store may require a number of different login systems, each requiring operations personnel who are trained in each. As a result, each retail solution management platform can now be accessed through All-Star for a holistic integration of all essential business operation activities, making device maintenance substantially easier.
"Hanshow has developed All-Star and the rest of its solutions specifically with global retailers in mind to achieve a more holistic form of digitalization. These new solutions, software, and transmission technologies all combine to help retailers in Europe move into an exciting new era of digitalization. This unlocks great new opportunities. We're just seeing the beginning of what's possible,"
In addition to the All-Star system, Hanshow has created an industry-first communications protocol that employs a single transmission frequency to communicate with all Hanshow IoT devices, reducing the number of signal frequencies required previously.
