Sensolus & Deutsche Telekom unite to launch IoT asset tracking


Belgian IIoT firm Sensolus has partnered with German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom to launch a powerful asset tracking solution. Asset tracking and management can only ever be as good as the network that enables data transmission, explains Johan Criel, Co-Founder of Sensolus. “It is important to find a network provider who knows the specific requirements of IoT applications and offers suitable network services.We are very pleased that Deutsche Telekom, as the market-leading provider in Germany, is working with us and is supporting the implementation of our end-to-end solution with its highly available NB-IoT network, which particularly benefits companies from the transport, logistics, and the industry sector.”

Sensolus’ GPS tracker portfolio can resist tough environments and includes clever motion and tilt detection systems that can be augmented with additional sensors for data collection such as temperature and filling levels. Sensolus sensor batteries last at least five years when using Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). “We have worked hard over the last few years to consistently improve the performance of our trackers as well as the functionality of the Sensolus asset management platform,” said Filip Van Lancker, Sensolus’ Head of Partnerships. “Over the past few years, we have worked hard to continuously improve the performance of our trackers, as well as the functionality of the Sensolus asset management platform,” said Filip Van Lancker, Head of Partnerships at Sensolus.

“Across Europe, more than 175,000 of our customers’ trackers are already connected to our platform. Now we are proud to be able to offer our solution to a wide range of companies in Germany together with Deutsche Telekom.” Sensolus trackers are configured and managed via a cloud-based administration platform. In addition to presenting the location of assets on a map, the system provides businesses with extensive AI-supported analysis of tracker data. “IoT technology offers huge opportunities for tracking and managing their assets, achieving efficiency gains and implementing new business models to companies, in particular, in the industrial, transport and logistics sectors,” adds Emanouel Tachtsoglou, IoT Expert and Partner Manager at Deutsche Telekom IoT.

“Containers, pallets, crates or trailers – companies that not only locate such carriers with precision, but also systematically evaluate their movement and status data – can optimize the use of their assets, thereby making processes more efficient and saving costs.With Sensolus, we are expanding our partner portfolio in the field of IoT solutions. By doing so, we are able to offer our customers in Germany an intelligent solution for the asset tracking and management of their non-powered assets.”
