TrackNet, Inc., a cutting-edge LoRaWAN Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider and developer of the all-in-one smart-home and monitoring solution “Tabs,” is now targeting its IoT solutions at cable multi-system operators, the company said.
TrackCentral core network server is poised for IoT network deployment to help increase revenue per user (RPU).
TrackNet is experiencing significant traction with cable MSOs based on its Tabs consumer solution and TrackCentral core network server.
TrackNet network architecture and key design elements of the TrackCentral Network Server were evaluated by Kyrio, a subsidiary of CableLabs. The demonstration measured the suitability of the following aspects for cable networks: scalability, multi-tenancy, deployment flexibility, and key architectural and performance metrics. Kyrio offers performance, compatibility, and certification testing services for networked devices, and plays an important role in enabling network deployments throughout the cable industry and beyond.
The Tabs consumer solution by TrackNet allows cable operators to retain customers and increase RPU by offering their consumers location, security, and monitoring services. Each Tabs hub becomes part of a large-scale IoT low power wide area network (LPWAN) that, with minimal market penetration, can provide dense network coverage that benefits all the network users.
The Tabs solution will allow consumers to locate kids, elderly, pets, or valuable objects across an entire neighborhood or city. The solution combines location-based features with home security and home environment for indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity. The Tabs Hub combines Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN technology and offers consumers easy-to-use Wi-Fi parental control and Wi-Fi security features through the easy-to-use mobile app.
To deploy IoT, cable MSOs will need to launch a LPWAN. Essential to creating a large-scale IoT network is TrackNet´s LoRaWAN core network server, TrackCentral. It is designed for hybrid “inside-out” network deployments that leverage in-building and tower-mounted LoRa gateways for effective and cost-effective network coverage. The “inside-out” deployment model is a natural fit for many cable operators. With this type of deployment model, TrackCentral provides scalability with its ability to handle hundreds of millions of gateways and billions of devices compared to tens of thousands of gateways in a tower-based deployment model.
TrackNet provides highly scalable LoRaWAN IoT solutions for consumers and industry, focusing on ease of use and multi-dimensional scalability to enable a new era of exponentially growing LPWAN deployments for a sustainable world.
