Custodia Systems 是一家总部位于英国的安全咨询公司。它由前高盛技术和工程主管 Peter Thompson 于 2005 年创立，启动资金为 4,000 英镑（约 4,800 欧元）。它现在是 Appello 跟踪设备的全球分销商，其产品目前为英国价值 1.5 亿英镑（1.8 亿欧元）的工程机械提供保护。 Appello 设备是一种小型便携式设备（不比智能手机大），电池寿命长达两年。它没有外部接线，并且无法通过专业窃贼使用的扫描设备（如 GPS（全球定位系统）单元）定位。该设备是隐藏的，例如在一台工厂机械的工程中，并发出一个有规律的信号来标记它的当前位置。在全球范围内，Custodia Systems 声称 80% 的被盗设备在八小时内被追回并归还给其所有者。为确保消费者信心并提供竞争优势，Custodia Systems 需要一个故障安全通信基础设施，该基础设施需要国际化、可靠和尽可能准确。此外，为了支持 AppelloGEO（一种可在全球范围内使用的新产品）的推出，Custodia Systems 需要一个全球平台和固定价格的国际关税。

Peter Thompson 在高盛任职时就已经熟悉沃达丰的商业服务。他相信沃达丰的基于位置的服务将提供最有效的资产恢复解决方案，预装的 SIM 卡会发出信号，指示估计的位置。然后，恢复小组可以使用无线电信标跟踪地面上的设备。为了最有效，这些设备需要长距离传输。沃达丰在英国的频率为 900MHz。该频率比其他通信服务提供商使用的 1800MHz 频率更有效地穿透建筑物和材料。这意味着信号可以传播得更远（最远可达 20 英里，而 1800MHz 为 2 英里），并且该设备甚至可以位于最难以接近的地方。在混凝土掩体、钢制集装箱和地下停车场中发现了被盗资产。 Vodafone 网络通过使用跟踪设备与附近蜂窝桅杆的方向和距离来支持准确定位，这意味着 Custodia Systems 将能够将搜索区域缩小三分之二。 “沃达丰还存储了最后一个位置的缓存，”汤普森说。 “每个网络都会注册当前位置，但沃达丰是英国唯一一个存档最后已知位置的网络。” AppelloGEO 设备大部分时间都处于休眠状态，节省能源并使窃贼难以检测到信号，但它会打开以发送定期警报。 “能够根据最后一个信号检测位置是比 Timing Advance 更重要的功能。这意味着我们可以证明设备上次打开的时间以及在资产被盗之前它正在工作，”汤普森说。

IoT Applications and Upgrades in Textile Plant
At any given time, the textile company’s manufacturing facility has up to 2,000 textile carts in use. These carts are pushed from room to room, carrying materials or semi-finished products. Previously, a paper with a hand-written description was attached to each cart. This traditional method of processing made product tracking extremely difficult. Additionally, making sure that every cart of materials or semi-finished products went to its correct processing work station was also a problem. Therefore, the company desired an intelligent solution for tracking assets at their factories. They also wanted a solution that would help them collect process data so they could improve their manufacturing efficiency.
Goldcorp: Internet of Things Enables the Mine of the Future
Goldcorp is committed to responsible mining practices and maintaining maximum safety for its workers. At the same time, the firm is constantly exploring ways to improve the efficiency of its operations, extend the life of its assets, and control costs. Goldcorp needed technology that can maximize production efficiency by tracking all mining operations, keep employees safe with remote operations and monitoring of hazardous work areas and control production costs through better asset and site management.
Buoy Status Monitoring with LoRa
The Netherlands are well-known for their inland waterways, canals, sluices and of course port activities. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure indicates that there are thousands of buoys and fixed items in and near water environments that would profit from IoT monitoring. One of the problems with buoys for example, is that they get hit by ships and the anchor cable breaks. Without connectivity, it takes quite some time to find out that something has happened with that buoy. Not to mention the costs of renting a boat to go to the buoy to fix it. Another important issue, is that there is no real-time monitoring of the buoys at this moment. Only by physically visiting the object on the water, one gains insight in its status.
IoT Based Asset Tracking System
The existing system used by the customer could only track a few thousand assets and was able to generate only a few standard set of reports. As the number of assets tracked grew exponentially, the system started to break at the seams. The Tracking devices were from different manufacturers following different protocols. There was no proper integration among the devices to send instant alerts. There are thousands of tracking devices spread across multiple geographies, that are moving. The configuration and troubleshooting of these devices incurred heavy costs, which was a logistics challenge. The existing system did not provide sophisticated Analytics, Business Intelligence and Insights from the data
