Tekelek: measurement made simple

Tekelek announces first commercial LoRaWAN volume rollout in France.

A new era in IoT tank measurement as Tekelek deploy first LoRaWAN commercial rollout in France.

Shannon, Ireland – May 2, 2018, 09:00 a.m. GMT Tekelek, a leading developer and manufacturer of IoT telemetry products and solutions, today announced the first volume commercial order for recently developed LoRaWAN Level Monitor.

Under the contract, Tekelek will supply the TEK766 LoRaWAN Tank Sensor which is a flexible and configurable battery-operated liquid sensor with an integrated LoRaWAN radio. It is the first among such SMART tank monitoring devices to be deployed to the European fuel oil distribution market. Traditionally, cost of investment has prevented the widespread deployment of tank monitoring units to homes and businesses. Tekelek’s new LoRaWAN Level Monitors infrastructure is based on an ultra-low-power, long-range LoRaWAN network. The advantages of a low-cost network infrastructure, long life battery and low maintenance costs makes large scale monitoring now an affordable and profitable investment.

The TEK766 LoRaWAN Monitor has the following key features and benefits:
• Real time data analytics
• Remote configurability
• 14-year battery life
• Flexible liquid level measurement solution i.e. fuel oil, water, chemicals, lubricants, liquid fertiliser etc.
• Spot and continuous inventory management

The new LoRaWAN Level Monitor will give households and businesses unprecedented visibility and control over their fuel oil usage, and enable more accurate decisions concerning efficiency. Increased profitability and better managed business operations are the net benefits.

“Smart tank monitoring is one of many IoT-enabled applications that could transform how people live and engage with the world around them, and how businesses operate and engage with their customers. We are receiving much interest and look forward to developing relationships with our European based customers” Oliver McCarthy, General Manager at Tekelek.

Tekelek Speeds Device Time to Market with Kerlink Reference Design

PRESS RELEASE

Thorigné-Fouillard, France, and Shannon, Ireland – Feb. 26, 2018, 09:00 a.m. GMT – Kerlink (ALKLK – FR0013156007), a specialist and global leader in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Tekelek, a leading developer and manufacturer of telemetry products and solutions for more than 20 years, today announced that Tekelek launched a remote-metering solution with new devices based on Kerlink’s reference design platform and LoRaWANTM connectivity.

The platform, which Kerlink added to its suite of services in 2017, is a complete package of hardware, software, development-and-test tools and guidelines to help device makers design and produce IoT network devices with an accelerated time to market.

For Tekelek, the No. 1 supplier of ultrasonic tank-monitoring devices in Europe with more than 2.5 million devices in the field, the combination of Kerlink’s reference design and WirnetTM Stations, and LoRaWANTM IoT connectivity, enabled the company to quickly design and produce remote-monitoring sensors and assure customers they could cost effectively deploy networks for monitoring gas containers.

“Kerlink’s reference design dramatically shortened time to market for our new remote-monitoring devices, and significantly reduced Tekelek’s development costs and the number of personnel needed for the project,” said Oliver McCarthy, general manager of Tekelek.

“Prior to adopting the Kerlink reference design, a key business challenge had been convincing customers of the value of investing in cellular technology to monitor their equipment, which typically is spread over wide areas. These deployments are now part of the evolution in remote telemetry applications,” McCarthy said. “Kerlink was the right fit for us, because they are the leading experts in LoRa® communication technology, while Tekelek’s core expertise is in applications that measure content levels in containers. Combining these essential strengths made the decision to work with Kerlink the obvious choice.”

Marie Le Berre, vice president of Kerlink’s Infrastructure Solutions business unit, noted that Tekelek considered competing options for equipment design and network deployment before choosing to partner with Kerlink.

“Tekelek’s ability to convince its customers of the benefits of the LoRa® solution with Kerlink’s reference design – and then to enable them to quickly and simply leverage LoRaWANTM connectivity – is a strong use case for companies around the world that want to put the IoT to work for their companies and their customers,” she said.
Kerlink will demonstrate its solutions, including its low power IoT reference design, at Mobile World Congress, Feb. 26-March 1, at booth 8.0C11.
