Commsolid’s NarrowBand-IoT (NB-IoT) technology has been showcased at InnoTrans 2018, the leading international trade fair for transport technology. EAM Software GmbH, specialist for enterprise asset management and data integration, demonstrated CommSolid solutions and how NB-IoT can enable condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of moving trains.
For this EAM Software is focusing on direct and low-threshold integration of sensor systems in vehicles and on reliable data transfer to backend systems. Decisive factors here are reduced complexity by avoidance of too many components, limited number of interfaces through direct integration and high connectivity coverage by using technologies as NB-IoT.
Market forecasts show a progressive adoption of NB-IoT technology worldwide. NB-IoT is designed to operate in a wide range of environmental conditions, can support a huge number of devices and is easy to deploy and operate. Using Commsolid’s leading edge NB-IoT technology helped EAM to showcase how to move the train industry’s digitalization to the next level.
