ITHENA and Nordic Semiconductors partners to Offer Superior Connectivity in Digital Transformation

Richmond, VA, USA, 26th April 2020 – ITHENA, a global technology company specializing in IT consulting and product engineering, today announced its partnership with Nordic Semiconductors, a leading global provider of integrated electronic design services and products, to provide multi-mode LTE-M and NB-IoT cellular IoT connectivity in the retrofittable modules employed in all ITHENA’s IoT application platforms.

ITHENA believes this improvement in connectivity will provide web and mobile-based custom IoT asset tracking and usage monitoring solutions for industrial or moveable assets. Some of the solutions which include this modern technology are.

  • ITHENA Smart Street Lights
  • ITHENA Smart Utility Meters
  • ITHENA Smart Connected Factory

Probodh Chiplunkar, Partner at ITHENA, said: “What our IoT platform does is integrate into existing infrastructure via retrofittable hardware modules that are then used to create multiple potential data channels that are all brought back to one ‘landing area’ and analyzed to boost all kinds of operational efficiencies including reduced energy consumption and maintenance costs,”. “The ITHENA platform also supports leading-edge AI-based product tracking and Augmented Reality [AR] based servicing.”

This typically includes a lot of sensor capabilities such as temperature, vibration, gyroscope, proximity, light and weight monitoring that isn’t typically built into an existing piece of OEM equipment or city infrastructure.

Probodh Chiplunkar also said: “While making things smart and connected is not a new concept, what the advent of cellular IoT allows is to do this without having to build a hub-based gateway. This means any smart device be that a utility meter or streetlight, for example, can securely communicate directly with the cloud via cellular anywhere in the world, which is a game-changer for IoT.”

“One thing that is often overlooked when it comes to the IoT is increasingly strict regulatory requirements when it comes to everything from energy consumption to how perishable commodities such as food and medicines are transported,” comments Geir Langeland, Nordic Semiconductor Director of Sales & Marketing. “Often, the only way companies can meet these requirements in a commercially viable way is to turn to the IoT and its enormous potential for optimizing operational efficiencies and reducing costs. And this will right now include making existing assets smart and connected even if they were never originally designed to be so.”

We are excited about this partnership, and we hope that it would be a fruitful partnership and will get stronger as time goes by.
