Inseego Corp. (Nasdaq: INSG), a global provider of high performance modems, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced integration with Current, powered by GE, including the world´s largest smart city IoT sensor platform installation in San Diego, the company said.
This large scale deployment involves 3,200 intelligent CityIQâ¢ sensor nodes that will help optimize traffic and parking, plus enhance public safety, environmental awareness and overall livability for the city of San Diego, CA. “IoT sensor platform” is included as there are larger single use sensors deployed, but none that offer an array of sensors in an integrated platform like the CityIQâ¢ sensor nodes.
Current, powered by GE will continue to integrate Inseego´s modems as cities mobilize and scale municipal digital footprints through network partner AT&T. Inseego has provided support and advantages through integration of the Skyusâ¢ DS 4G cellular modem, which allows for the real time transmission of critical meta data and on-premise analytics, that are key components in smart city initiatives like San Diego.
Widely deployed in the market for remote device management and failover applications, Inseego´s Skyusâ¢ DS 4G device solution is customized for IoT applications. With a CAGR of 25.8%, the device management market is forecasted to grow to USD 5.8B by 2021 according to Market and Markets. The Skyus DS is uniquely positioned to capture substantial portions of this market by providing customers the ability to remotely monitor devices and update settings as necessary, avoiding costly truck rolls. Additionally, having two SIM slots on the device allows customers to dynamically select the optimum carrier for a particular deployment.
