We’re advancing industries into the next generation with the power of our network’s reach.
Along with the spread of IoT, manufacturing sites have been adopting Wi-Fi at a rapid pace. PicoCELA’s products, which require no LAN cables to connect network routers together, have greatly multiplied in use. Within facilities where layouts change frequently and places where robots and vehicles are often moving about, our products are highly useful. Monitoring and analysis for IoT devices, sensors, surveillance cameras, controls for robotics/AGVs, and supply chain management are some areas where we expect the use of edge computers to expand.
In locations such as event venues and large sports facilities – as well as golf courses and ski resorts – setting up high-speed wireless LAN is essential with a large gathering of people constantly sending and receiving video data through smartphones and tablets. In these places, where it has been a challenge to lay out LAN cables, our built-in wireless battery has made the most remote or hard-to-reach areas able to be covered in a single network. Thanks to this advanced ad hoc technology, it’s now possible to build an environment for digital communication that’s high-speed and reliable. Utilizing edge computing can also improve the user experience and profitability.
As information technology advances, the need to send digital plans and blueprints to IT hardware such as tablets at work sites also increases. There are also a lot of work sites where the current Wi-Fi systems are lacking in network reach; these sites are looking for an affordable, high-speed network infrastructure. With our products, we can build the LAN-cable-free, widespread, and high-speed Internet network that people have been seeking. This means that our technology allows the network to be set up in the deepest parts of a tunnel – our hassle-free infrastructure can also be used to create smart cities. With our edge computer, we also provide solutions such as tracking workers’ movements.
Thanks to our wireless LAN technology requiring minimal cabling, we’ve cut the cable cost by over 85% and greatly reduced the installation cost in large-scale shopping malls, where there are aboveground and underground levels to cover. Our technology has also been installed in large offices and hotels. In the future, we anticipate the use of our edge computing for digital marketing to improve sales.
