Collaboration to bring cellular data into IoT platform

January 11, 2018 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Advanced RF Technologies, Inc., (ADRF) has joind the Strategic Alliance Partner Program set up by Sirqul – a collaboration that enhances the capabilities of the Sirqul IoT platform by incorporating data from the cellular connections ADRF provides.

Sirqul is an engagement-as-a-service IoT provider that offers software and bundled set of vertical solutions, which combine with mesh networks to track and identify individuals' behavior, location, and intent. This can range from identifying the exact whereabouts of a fan at a sports stadium to deliver food to enabling autonomous robots to navigate industrial warehouses and factories, as well as be monitored.

ADRF's technology enables Sirqul to incorporate data from 3G and 4G adding redundancy to the network, while creating new opportunities for venues and buildings that aren't equipped to provide WiFi. Through the partnership, Sirqul will be able to leverage ADRF's expertise in deploying successful wireless systems and mission-critical technologies in public arenas, apartment complexes, smart buildings, and professional sports stadiums to enhance their platform offering.
