Last year, Adroit Technologies expanded its offerings through its partnership with Sqwidnet, the licensed Sigfox Internet of Things (IoT) network operator in South Africa. From the mid-March, Adroit has been certified as a Sigfox partner for devices and for its scada platform, which presents an opportunity for IoT applications and service providers to use the cloud-based scada system and industrial-automation platforms.
The company has demonstrated that it is a leading technology company with two important dimensions: a great understanding of the IoT world and technology, and a willingness to go the extra mile for customers. The new system allows data from sensors and devices to be delivered to the Adroit-hosted platform environment through the Sigfox IoT network, which is provided in South Africa by SqwidNet. Partners and end-users of Adroit will be able to connect and use it seamlessly as a data-acquisition and application layer software solution.
Adroit Technologies has several IoT software objects already built and has committed to building others for partners wishing to list their products. This will assist customers to build cross-functional solutions and address the industrial, smart-city, smart building and asset tracking industries. It enables partners and end users anywhere in the world to use Adroit’s technology seamlessly as a data-acquisition and application-layer software solution for IoT projects.
MD Dave Wibberley explains the company strategy: “A modern scada system is an ideal product to test and even build a digital or IoT solution. Adroit now certified as a platform, along with the sensors we have, will now enable partners and customers to come to us and purchase sensors and software that will work together and allow them, in a familiar industrial software environment, to build solutions.”
SqwidNet offers a network model that provides Adroit products with a long range, low cost, low power and secure networking solution. With SqwidNet as a network provider, typical connectivity costs R200 a year for a sensor that transmits data every 15 minutes. Wibberley explains that owing to these key network benefits, the company can now offer sensors with connectivity for less than R1000 per point of connectivity.
The IoT network allows for small packets of data to be transmitted in near real-time to the Adroit Scada for storage and analysis. The system provides industrial data acquisition, reporting and analytics, together with user-friendly development software for easy development of customised IoT solutions. Adroit encourages companies to take advantage of its cloud-based reporting, alarm management, asset management and performance management solutions.
