Published: August 26th, 2020

Digital Matter’s long-life battery-powered GPS tracking devices now N-Tick Certified, fully integrated with N2N-DL Data Platform, enabling reliable and affordable LoRaWAN® asset tracking applications.

NNNCo, licensed telecommunications carrier and LoRaWAN® network operator, today announced a partnership with Digital Matter, global leaders in GPS and IoT hardware development. Through the partnership, Digital Matter’s range of battery-powered GPS tracking devices are now N-Tick Certified and available for use on the NNNCo IoT Network across Australia.

Digital Matter’s range of LoRaWAN battery-powered GPS tracking devices are optimized for low-power operations, low latency, and global adaptability, suited for a wide range of asset tracking and management applications.

In addition to N-Tick Certification, Digital Matter’s battery-powered Oyster GPS is also LoRaWAN® Certified (CM), ensuring businesses can confidently deploy devices knowing they are thoroughly tested and validated for operation by the LoRa Alliance® and NNNCo.

“Digital Matter’s asset tracking devices are certified and ready to deploy at scale for asset tracking and logistics applications on our enterprise-grade LoRaWAN networks,” said Rob Zagarella, CEO, NNNCo.

“This is significant for businesses who require affordable and scalable asset tracking solutions, particularly in remote regions across Australia where reliable and affordable connectivity is a substantial problem,” Mr Zagarella added.

Digital Matter’s high-precision tracking devices provide vital location and movement history data so businesses can protect and recover their most important assets, such as pallets, containers, equipment, vehicles, trailers, bins, and more.

“LoRaWAN enables endless applications for asset tracking,” says Ken Everett, CEO and Founder, Digital Matter. “Thanks to LoRaWAN’s low energy operation, we are able to extend the battery-life of our asset tracking devices even further, with devices lasting up to 5 years on a single set of batteries.”

Comprehensive documentation and a flexible and open payload format make integrating and deploying Digital Matter devices for any asset-tracking application simple, substantially accelerating time to market and decreasing costs. Tracking parameters such as heartbeat rate, accelerometer settings, after-hours alerts, and more are configurable over the air, allowing businesses to customize devices and reporting to suit their unique applications.

“We’re very excited to partner with Digital Matter to provide the network connectivity and data layer aggregation services for large-scale deployment of their asset tracking devices,” said Mr Zagarella.

“As the leading enterprise LoRaWAN operator in Australia, our aim is to enable the ecosystem and ensure best-of-breed hardware is available and ready to deploy across the many industries that will benefit from IoT.”
