Integron Launches IoT Managed Services for Mobile Asset Management

News, Press Releases

Los Angeles – Mobile World Congress – Americas – Oct 21, 2019 – Integron announced today the launch of a new comprehensive managed services solution for mobile asset management. The Integron solution introduces a new level of condition management, allowing companies in the medical instrumentation, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries to maintain real-time condition visibility of critical and high value goods.

Integron will leverage its expertise in IoT managed services to assist connected health and life sciences companies in the turnkey deployment of scalable asset management tools. The solution brings together hardware sourcing, wireless connectivity, UI support, project management, kitting, warehousing, and logistics to enable companies to seamlessly deploy monitoring solutions for high value assets.

“Our customers have been looking for a comprehensive condition monitoring solution for a long time, and we’re excited to finally be able to deliver it,” commented Bryan Lubel, president of Integron. “Passive monitoring has not been sufficient for the highly regulated nature of the connected health market, and up to this point, active monitoring has been too fragmented, complicated and costly. We are excited to change that.”

Enterprise IoT deployments, including those for mobile asset management, require a level of expertise in wireless connectivity, device management, and regulatory compliance that can overwhelm businesses of any size. According to Gartner, enterprises adopting managed IoT services will achieve a 50% faster time to solution at a 30% cost savings compared to those using in-house resources.

Real-time condition monitoring, inclusive of temperature and humidity monitoring, is expected to grow within the United States by as much as 11% CAGR over the next five years. The increased development in temperature-sensitive biopharmaceuticals, along with heightened awareness of food and drug safety has caused a sharper demand in reliable asset management tools.

Integron will be demonstrating capabilities in mobile asset management during Mobile World Congress – Americas, October 22-24 in Los Angeles in booth #2708.

Sprint T-Mobile

Sprint and T-Mobile – What does this mean for IoT?

Blog, News

Shifting the Connectivity Landscape

If you’ve tuned into the news in the last year, you have probably heard a little bit about the Sprint/T-Mobile merger. This potential deal has now dragged on for a solid two years! However, over the past month, some critical steps have been taken by federal regulators (FCC) in the recent weeks to push the closing of this merger nearly to the finish line.

There still remain a few obstacles to overcome, including dealing with a variety of lawsuits by states looking to block/modify the deal. In spite of those hurdles, most think that the deal is likely to happen within the next couple of months.

What does this mean for the Internet of Things?

New Competition

This potential deal not only creates another giant in the IoT space, comparable in size to Verizon and AT&T, it also (as part of the agreement with the US government) would introduce a new wireless carrier into the US market. That new carrier is Dish Network. Dish has been holding a fair amount of spectrum (radio waves used to transmit wireless signals) and would now be pushed into using that spectrum to serve the market.

Faster to 5G

The potential of a Sprint/T-Mobile merger would bring together arguably the most robust spectrum offering in the country. The new entity would be able to use that spectrum to quickly deploy a significant 5G network footprint in the United States, while putting pressure on AT&T and Verizon to accelerate their 5G buildout.

While we usually think of 5G networks as being insanely fast and power consuming, the 5G standard actually incorporates lower speed, power-conscious networks like NB-IoT and LTE-M. Businesses need to know that these networks are coming soon, and they should be making network migration plans to move from legacy 2G and 3G networks.

Are you ready for change?

While there is good reason for excitement and anticipation as these new networks become real, the reality of sunsetting cellular networks is something that is stinging many. The truth is 2G and 3G networks were always good enough for most IoT applications. Of course they knew this day would come, but it still doesn’t help many businesses that have invested significant resources on legacy, sunsetting network technologies.

As you plan your network strategy, please reach out to us. Integron has managed some of the most high-profile and successful IoT deployments in the world. We’ve seen a few network sunsets in our 30+ year existence, and we’d love to help you.
