M2M and the Internet of Things are having a great impact across sectors. The sector with the highest adoption rate at the moment is Energy and Utilities, which reached a 37% adoption this year. The strong adoption rate can be explained by Government regulations on smart energy in many countries. Various industry reports, such as Analysys Mason’s, suggest that this sector will continue growing at a good pace and forecast a 23% CAGR in number of global M2M connections through 2020 in this specific sector.
There are many benefits of M2M for this sector, such as reducing energy demand through smart meters, reducing energy bills and carbon emissions, managing the patters in demand and supply and giving both businesses and consumers more control over their energy use. This will also derive in the creation of new business and tariff models.
One of our partners, Solare Datensysteme GmbH, is one of the leading companies for solar monitoring with a global service for operators and installers.
Solar-Log products and services are already available in many European countries today. With their committed team and numerous partners they are continually working toward expanding their sales and service network. From 2010 Solare Datensysteme has been represented in the US market.
Pangea was introduced to Solar-Log by one of Pangea’s customers who also used Solar-Log. The partnership has been formed to provide a solution to the global distribution and installation network of Solar-Log. Our partnership is especially beneficial to Solar-Log clients looking to utilise multi-network connectivity with the Solar Log GPRS devices.. Pangea’s capability to provide Global SMART connectivity to multiple networks has really given Solar-Log the confidence that their devices will not suffer from any connectivity issues while out in the field.
Pangea and Solar-Log are working together to make it simpler and easier for the partners to connect via GPRS anywhere. The partner now has a very robust way of connecting to any network across the UK, EU and beyond with a single SIM.
The Solar-Log distributors and installers are able to focus on providing exceptional service and solar metering products, rather than deal with unnecessary connectivity issues. The outcome is happier clients using a purpose built connectivity solution on a global scale.
Pangea’s aim is to connect everything. We work to drive innovation and are always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Feel free to contact us to find out how we can help your business.
