500,000 units sold! Dutch IoT LoRa and Track & Trace success
KCS BV, an Internet of Things company in the Netherlands, has announced that a new milestone was reached in Q3 2021: over 500,000 ‘TraceME’ LoRa and other tracking units sold. KCS is honored by the faith the market continues to place in the company and attributes its success to early innovation and implementing new technologies, such as LoRa (Long-Range) in 2015.
Since KCS integrated new LPWAN (Low-Power Wide Area Network) technologies, new use cases and massive IoT deployments became possible. Switching from traditional GPS/GPRS systems to LPWAN based systems resulted in reduced costs and increased battery lifespans to more than 10 years in some cases. It has now become feasible for countless industries and businesses to implement IoT. By doing so, new value-added activities or even entirely new business models are enabled. Examples of use cases KCS is involved in include smart waste management, temperature-controlled transport, smart road signs and large-scale asset tracking such as E-Bikes, to name a few.
In 2022 and beyond, KCS will continue to build on its existing TraceME products to enable new use cases or provide further enhancements. KCS remains dedicated to showing why it is a safe choice for any large-scale IoT deployment.
