Otonomo Collaborates with AWS to leverage AWS IoT FleetWise
Otonomo Technologies Ltd. (Otonomo), a leading mobility intelligence platform provider, today announced its plans for building on its Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) membership and existing integration with AWS Connected Mobility Solution by adding support for AWS IoT FleetWise, a new AWS service launching today.

“Today’s connected cars are already data centers on wheels, each generating GBs of data per hour,” said Mike Tzamaloukas, GM IoT Automotive, AWS. “The collaboration between Otonomo and AWS Kaleidoscope will accelerate automakers and their partners capabilities to put this massive amount of data to use creating new and innovative solutions that will advance the entire mobility industry.”

AWS IoT FleetWise’s advanced capabilities include the efficient collection and transfer of select automotive data to the cloud in near real-time from any vehicle. These capabilities, combined with AWS IoT FleetWise’s intelligent filtering capabilities, will make it even easier for Otonomo to process and deliver the massive quantities of vehicle data it manages daily into AWS workloads. Otonomo expects the resulting, increased velocity to enable its customers to build the next-generation of connected car applications.

“At Otonomo, we’re committed to driving smarter decisions and services for our customers through the utilization of connected vehicle data. Today’s Kaleidoscope announcement helps automakers collect and transfer data to the cloud more easily and efficiently than ever before. We are thrilled to expand our work leveraging AWS and are excited about the additional capabilities made possible through Kaleidoscope.”

Bell introduces Smart Supply Chain powered by Bell IoT Smart Connect for fleet and supply chain operators

Bell Canada | October 29, 2021

Bell Business Markets today announced the launch of Smart Supply Chain powered by Bell IoT Smart Connect, an "as-a-service" IoT aggregation solution designed for fleet and supply chain operators. The new platform aggregates multiple IoT data sources and operational data sets into a single dashboard accessible through Bell's Self Serve Centre. "With the need to gather a broad range of data, fleet and supply chain operators are increasingly turning to smart IoT solutions as a core part of their business operations. With Canada's largest network and our professional managed services, Bell is uniquely positioned to provide organizations with a comprehensive, cloud-based IoT platform to gather insights and help them make better decisions, faster." Jeremy Wubs, Bell's Senior Vice President, Marketing for Bell Business Markets As organizations implement more IoT solutions into their supply chain, they need to aggregate and manage the data so that they can derive insights to enable faster and better decision-making. Bell IoT Smart Connect reduces business complexity by offering a unified view of a company's entire fleet, including trucks, trailers, drivers and the temperature of cargo, to optimize and automate tracking and management. With one dashboard, fleet operators can view all events, incidents and alerts and provide near real-time status updates to customers while ensuring cargo and drivers safely reach their destination on time. "Even before the recent supply chain shocks, Canadian businesses were adopting data-driven solutions to improve their operational efficiency. Connected Internet of Things (IoT) solutions like fleet management and cold chain monitoring enable real-time awareness so that better decisions can be made faster, saving time and reducing waste," said Nigel Wallis, VP IoT at IDC Canada. "Resiliency is now more important than ever to freight, logistics and other supply chain participants and IoT will be a crucial building block in that process." Smart Supply Chain powered by Bell IoT Smart Connect features: Cold chain monitoring to automatically record temperature levels and provide near real-time alerts when they fall outside safe ranges while cargo is in transit; A driver scorecard that aggregates telematics data and optional video analytics to monitor and rate the behaviour of individual drivers and teams; Fleet management by pairing fleet management data with operational data, so that fleet managers and dispatchers can optimize operations and prevent issues. Smart Supply Chain sends data gathered from sensors installed in trucks and trailers to the IoT Smart Connect cloud-based platform over the Bell LTE network, which offers 66% more LTE coverage than the next leading competitor and roaming coverage throughout the United States.

Sequans Introduces Calliope 2: LTE Cat 1 Technology for IoT Applications Requiring Higher Than LTE-M Speed

Sequans | January 07, 2021

Sequans Communications S.A. today declared that its second-age LTE Cat 1 chip stage, Calliope 2, will before long be inspecting. Calliope 2 is intended for the financially savvy backing of IoT applications that require VoLTE and an information rate higher than 100 kilobits for each subsequent that can't be upheld by LTE-M or NB-IoT advances. Average Calliope 2 applications incorporate wearables and hearables with music streaming and voice backing, and shrewd city/brilliant home IoT gadgets, for example, surveillance cameras, caution boards, and utility meters, requiring high throughput, and information aggregators where speed of up to a few megabits for every second might be required. Progressions in Sequans Calliope 2 innovation eliminate the expense and force utilization boundaries that have hitherto hindered far reaching arrangement of Cat 1 for IoT. These progressions include: 1) higher reconciliation that has brought down the Cat 1 module cost nearer to the degree of LTE-M module cost 2) altogether improved force utilization, in both dynamic and low force modes, bringing the force profile close down to the LTE-M force profile, and accordingly essentially expanding the battery life of Cat 1 IoT gadgets. "Calliope 2 is a genuinely general and profoundly successful IoT arrangement and we are amped up for the numerous new IoT applications that are being assembled as a result of it," said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. "Calliope 2 supplements our Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT item family and makes Sequans an all in one resource for practically all IoT applications—going from straightforward low speed sensor gadgets to higher speed surveillance cameras, and from low-power, battery-worked purchaser gadgets to modern, higher speed mechanical gadgets." Notwithstanding cost and force enhancements, Calliope 2 conveys progressed highlights, for example, an EAL5+ secure area for ieUICC, and coordinated VoLTE with help for crisis voice calling and streaming sound. Calliope 2 is 5G-prepared, consistent with the 3GPP Release 15 enormous IoT standard. Its client application programming and interfaces are viable with Sequans' Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT stage, permitting simple relocation among Cat 1, LTE-M, and NB-IoT enormous IoT innovations. Feline 1 organizations are today accessible around the world, empowering Calliope 2 to help any IoT application or gadget, even in those locales where LTE-M isn't yet accessible.
