Packetworx, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) company in the Philippines, signed an exclusive agreement with ORBiz to build and deploy the very first Location of Things (LoT) infrastructure in the Greater Metro Manila in the next 3-6 months, and expand quickly to other major cities in the country.
ORBiz International Ltd. is the leading enterprise IoT location platform and network solution provider in Asia that enables Location of Things (LoT) applications.
‘This partnership will enable enterprise-grade tracking and monitoring solution. Industries that rely on tracking and location, such as logistics and supply chain, can get up to centimeter and millimeter positioning accuracy,’ says Arnold Bagabaldo, Founder and CEO of Packetworx.
Various applications for positioning data can be used for tracking, emergency and disaster preparedness, mapping and surveying for real estate and related industries to get accurate measurements like property boundaries.
‘For telecommunications companies, we can provide accurate information up to millimeter level to map and locate underground fiber installations. We can now measure the sways and movement of buildings and other structures like bridges to monitor safety,’ explains Arnold.
The LoT Solutions
ORBiz provides secure, accurate, and reliable location intelligence and end-to-end track & trace capability. It uses Real Time Kinematics (RTK), a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology that is capable of partially removing signal propagation errors due to density differences in atmospheric layers. It is capable of creating and gathering real-time correction data that allows for more accurate positioning than the traditional unassisted measurements currently being used by the industry.
‘We use RTK chips and devices that are openly available. Any RTK compliant and compatible chip will work with us so they can integrate that into centimeter and millimeter level accuracy.’ explains Jason Lee, CEO of ORBiz.
In partnership with ORBiz, Packetworx will deploy Continuous Operating Reference Stations (CORS) in the Philippines. It enhances GPS location and positioning to provide more accurate and precise locations of objects or vehicles being tracked. The base stations will connect enterprise IoT applications including but not limited to transportation, logistics, construction, safety, insurance, and land development.
‘We’re offering this as an easy-to-use Application Programming Interface (API) that you can subscribe from to get the correction information to give you meter, centimeter, and millimeter level accuracy,’ says Arnold.
These LoT solutions will allow enterprise customers to create better decisions to improve their operations, develop better products and services and provide better experience for their customers.
