In IoT/M2M/IIoT we have found that no one organization can deliver a best-in-breed complete solution on their own. There are organizations with best-in-breed sensors, best-in-breed controllers, best-in-breed wireless networks, best-in-breed IoT Platforms, and other best-in-breed equipment/integration/back-end enterprise systems. Device Solutions and Bright Wolf recognized each other’s respective best-in-breed offerings and decided to link them to provide a best-in-breed system to seamlessly connect sensors and controllers to back-end systems.

Bright Wolf is a software company that has built and deployed an industrial strength IoT Platform. The Bright Wolf IOT Platform has proven itself. They count CAT Marine, Phononic, and Haemonetics among their 50+ clients. Bright Wolf is designed for change and longevity. Their dashboards are constructed for low friction, short learning curve, and intuitive adoption. With facile interfacing to the enterprise, it is a future resistant platform that allows a company to plan for the long term

Device Solutions Inc and Bright Wolf LLC combined the Cellio Wireless Network and Bright Wolf’s IoT Platform to assemble a system that makes it virtually plug-and-play to design, implement and integrate large enterprises quickly and at-scale. The combined solution allows most any sensor and most any controller to be connected to a cloud-based backend data store and analytics platform making the information readily available to dashboards that can remotely monitor and control any device in the field. This ability can move an IoT/M2M/IIoT application discussion from the possible to deployed system solution in a matter of days or weeks.

Device Solutions partners with Bright Wolf on a number of projects for clients. Bob Witter, CEO of Device Solutions Inc says, “It is amazing that the platform Bright Wolf integrated with our Cellio System is so extensible. Scaling the system is almost as easy as simply adding more transceivers and gateway devices to monitor and control as many remote assets as you want to track and analyze – the sky is the limit.”

Cellio supplies the signals and Bright Wolf coordinates the data. Sensors that measure things like level, pressure, tilt, flow, and temperature are connected to Cellio devices which in turn are connected wirelessly to the Bright Wolf IoT platform to visualize the data, analyze inter-related variables, and provide results that are insightful and actionable. This end-to-end system can replace pen and paper logs, collating handwritten journal entries, manual auditing, and other historically manual processes that may have real costs in terms of labor hours, logistics, efficiencies, safety, and other significant opportunity costs. In fact, the combined systems provide the ability to audit data values as they are collected, provide regular data updates, and generate alerts and notices for events that are “out-of-bounds” in real time.

You could consider the combined Device Solutions/Bright Wolf offering an “incremental upgrade” for industrial, agricultural, and transportation/logistics organizations that can have a profound effect. Simply the visualization and status of assets in the field in real time can make decision making more visible and more intuitive. Analytics of real time data can give operators the ability to act more quickly, adjust to changing constraints, and even enhance the ability to forecast needs to address future issues before they become real problems. The ROI of cost efficiencies cannot be ignored. Foresight is monetized.

David Houghton, Director, Business Development, puts it this way, “Given Bright Wolf is focused on software, we often find ourselves working with clients to connect their next generation products which can take, in some cases, years to make it to market. Our relationship with Device Solutions and the integration with Cellio has allowed us to work with clients around end-to-end solutions with well-defined problems. The model changes our dialogue from big picture strategy to targeted business cases and production rollout – literally applying IoT to solve real world problems, now, today.”

Much of our economy is based on the use of gases. In addition to the obvious gases like gasoline and diesel, there is also a very big market for supplying and managing the distribution of noble gases throughout globe.

According to Transparency Market Research, in 2012, the noble gas market was estimated at 179 billion litres globally is projected to be approximately 202 billion litres by 2019. [1]

Keep in mind that there is are multiple tiers of distribution from the points of production to the points of consumption – with inventories of gas in tanks in increasingly smaller sizes all the way out to businesses and consumers. Managing that flow efficiently has been challenging. Companies have been unable to accurately visualize the locations of inventory, different sizes of tanks, and differing rates of consumption. This lack of visibility translates into loss of opportunities.

Device Solutions Inc today announced the availability of their new Cellio LoRa long-range low-power wireless network system for end-to-end automation and instrumentation in Factories, Farms, Warehouses, Transportation, Agriculture, and many other industries.

Cellio wireless gateways and transceivers use LoRa (Long Range radio, approximately 1 mile) to connect sensors and controllers wirelessly to the network. Gateway devices connect to internal and external networks, the internet, and cloud data systems via CDMA-Cellular, GSM-Cellular, or Wi-Fi 802.11bgn. This low cost and easy to install system enables companies to gain visibility into their operations and assets (sensors, instruments, equipment, location, usage, status, decision making, supply chain, operator indicators, etc.).

Cellio gateways can be used stand-alone or configured with transceivers to optimize architecture, data transmission, and connections. Cellio is suited for single locations as well extensive enterprise configurations where there may be upwards of millions of sensors and controls connected to equipment across the continent. Partnered with cellular carriers, back-end cloud platforms, sensor instrumentation companies, and technology core companies – full enterprise-level-solution installations can be quick, easily scaled, and very affordable.

“As an industrial grade IoT software platform provider, we often find ourselves working with clients to connect their next generation products which can take, in some cases, years to make it to market. The Cellio LoRa System integrates the basic building blocks to an end-to-end IoT solution, dramatically reducing the many technical risks and yet enabling unlimited customization for well-defined problems. Partnering with Device Solutions has changed our dialogue with clients from big picture strategy and technology evaluations to targeted business cases and production rollout – literally applying IoT to solve real world problems, now,” said David Houghton, Director, Bright Wolf, LCC.

dsi_cellio_xcvr_gateways

The Cellio LoRa family of wireless devices includes three distinct and configurable product options:
1. Gateways – CDMA-Cellular, GSM-Celluar, or Wi-Fi connections to the network utilize a 900MHz LoRa radio to connect a network of transceivers for data capture and control. Each gateway can cover over 3 square miles containing hundreds of widely dispersed transceivers.
2. Transceivers – up to 16 general-purpose inputs/outputs (GPIO) support connecting up to 16 sensors or controls per transceiver. The transceivers use a 900MHz LoRa radio to connect through gateways to the network. Transceivers make the system incredibly flexible and cost competitive.
3. All-in-One Devices – these devices include CDMA-Cellular, GSM-Cellular and/or Wi-Fi radios, the 900MHz LoRa radio, and 16 GPIO’s. These are perfect for maximizing tracking, sensing, controlling, and communicating with assets throughout the enterprise.

“Cellio LoRa is essentially a black box to connect most anything to the network and the network to most anything,” explains Bob Witter, CEO and Founder of Device Solutions. “Driven by customer requests, Cellio is sensor and controller agnostic as well as back-end data hosting/cloud agnostic. This allows maximum flexibility on costing and configuration for enterprises of all shapes and sizes.”

How Much: Depending on the installation configuration, pricing can be based on an all-inclusive monthly service, an all upfront hardware cost, or combination of the two. Typically the hardware is in the low $100’s for the devices, sensors, and installations while the monthly amounts can be sub $10 for each device that is monitored or controlled. If a facility already has sensors and controllers in place, Cellio can be used to wirelessly connect them to the network and make the data quickly and easily accessible for dashboard views and back-end data systems for supply chain, sales force and inventory management optimization.

Cellio LoRa cellular gateways include GPS capabilities that can be used to track the location of both stationary and mobile assets (vehicles, equipment, generators, etc.). The Cellio enclosures are designed for environmentally demanding applications (industrial, agricultural, farming, transportation, mining, and many others).
