Supply Chain Challenges
Solving customers’ supply chain challenges, IPX can deliver and integrate IoT, RFID, and Block Chain, to setup a full range of diverse services to automate the Supply Chain and tracking process.
Solving customers’ supply chain challenges
IPX will work with you to identify issues early to enhance your abilities to track and manage your valuable assets. Using our RFID –IoT tags helps reduce human error. Sensors monitor environmental conditions and capture other crucial information to ensure perishable, high-value and high-volume shipments are delivered securely and at the lowest cost. IPX can increase your visibility into the location, security and status of in-transit assets. Alert on tampering, diverting, spoilage, or any deviations from shipping and supply plans.
Supply Chain Visibility as a Service is delivered in a standard feed and your clients count on you to provide efficient work flows, cost savings and secure and compliant solutions to manage their global trade and transport. IPX provides precise and constantly updating ETAs and deep analytics insights that enhance your on-demand software and can be easily embedded to your exiting network and supply chain platforms.
Cellular, Satellite and Hybrid Active RFID – Minimum logistical footprint and backward compatibility with Active RFID across air, sea, rail and truck.
Fixed and Mobile Tracking – Active RFID tags and readers capture data at fixed, physical locations while communications-capable sensors, link to IoT, collect and send real-time data from anywhere.
Fast Deployment – First, upload the device file and mount the sensor. Pair the sensor to a shipment in control panel. You’re now set to receive real-time information on shipment status and location.
New Sensors for IoT Asset Tracking for the Government and Military
Backward compatible active RFID sensor capabilities support new DoD audit requirements
IPX, an innovator in big data IoT analytic solutions, supply chain management software and sensor technology, has added two new devices to its current suite of active RFID transponders and interrogators available for use by the US Department of Defense (DoD), NATO, and Federal Government agencies.
The new devices, which are a GPS location sensor and combined with a hybrid active RFID interrogator (reader) and transponder (transmitter). The Solutions will deliver real-time, in-transit visibility data from the control center solution to the DoD’s Radio Frequency In-Transit Visibility (RF-ITV) system. Both devices send data over a mobile network. Because the IoT device is backward compatible, it can both act as a transponder or interrogate active RFID data to and from the thousands of active RFID tags and readers the military has already deployed. The IPX IoT solutions, can also send active RFID data over a mobile network without the use of fixed readers. When acting as an active RFID reader, data is sent over a mobile network to control center, and to the DoD’s RF-ITV system. Now, whenever a mobile network is available, the location of government assets in a yard, or in-transit, can be known in real-time.
Today, military logisticians must provide a more mobile, agile fighting force with the equipment, materiel and supplies they need for a global mission. Sensors that can go anywhere, streaming real-time data on the count, location and condition of critical assets support always-ready, cost effective and inventory dangerous weapon systems, and related parts. The IoT solution, both provide enhanced support to military supply chains, recognizing the need for more flexible implementation options. The new products we are offering demonstrate our commitment to continued innovation in the active RFID environment and provide a bridge to new IoT technologies.
The Pentagon just completed a multi-year audit of $2.7 trillion worth of DoD inventory as part of its Department of Defense Agency Financial Report FY 2018. The audit identified major flaws in IT security processes and inaccuracies with its internal asset tracking databases. These findings reinforce how sensors that pinpoint the location of vehicles, weapons, heavy equipment, technical tools and supplies from moment to moment are crucial to tracking and managing that valuable inventory with the potential to save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.
Connected and automated building systems and devices including fire alarms, siren drivers, smoke detectors, laser barriers, sensors for automatic doors, safety and intercom systems.
IPX can assist companies in early adoption, of blockchain technology to further enhance brand perception and value as well as to expand into new business models using immutable data.
IPX, has a built in knowledge base for Block Chain on staff. IPX is keenly focused on the newest developments by Waltonchain (WTC) and VeChain, which are both enterprise-focused blockchain ecosystems. Both products are aimed at supply chain management by connecting blockchain technology with the real world through 'a comprehensive governance structure, a robust economic model, and advanced IoT integration.
Walton’s underlying solutions use RFID to create a unique combination of blockchain and Internet of Things. On this solution platform, merchants can create customized product relationships, that can monitor production, logistics, warehousing and retail circulation of commodities.
As a business component, WTC can ensure through blockchain that all the data is authentic and credible. With the reader chip and tag chip, all data of physical commodities, with the chip installed, in circulation is automatically recorded to blockchain.
This WTC avoids human interference, minimizes the data tampering possibilities, and creates a fair, transparent, traceable and credible new-generation business ecosystems.
VeChain enables manufacturers to assign products with unique identifiers on the platform, thereby allowing participants to track the movement and provenance of products in a supply chain. Started in June 2015, VeChain describes itself as 'a pioneer of real-world applications using public blockchain technology, with international operations in Singapore, Luxembourg, Tokyo, Shanghai, Paris, Hong Kong, and San Francisco' is building an ecosystem that melds blockchain, RFID technology, and IoT (Internet of Things).
The Walton team develops and produces Transaction ID-reading RFID chips, which can generate their own random ID hashes that are uploaded simultaneously to the blockchain via their RFID reader. This translates to enhanced operational efficiency, especially for supply chain use cases such high-end clothing identification, food & drug traceability, and logistics tracking.
