Altair Semiconductor partnered with Jig-Saw to create LTE-enabled sensors for a wide variety of industrial IoT applications. The partnership combines Altair’s dual-mode Cat-M/NB-IoT ALT1250 chipset with Jig-Saw’s software control technology to enable developers to create new IoT business models that can drive new efficiencies across their organisations. Potential market applications include IoT sensors for warehouse site management, equipment monitoring, logistics, and more.
The collaboration will enable users with connected IoT devices to control and monitor individual devices and their statuses at all times via a modem chip connection. In addition, auto-control services will enable users to address alerts in a timely manner.
The integration will be demonstrated by Jig-Saw this month at re:Invent 2018, the Amazon Web Services annual user conference, in Las Vegas from 26 – 30 November. The service is scheduled to launch in the Spring of 2019.
