Critical Components of an IoT Asset Tracking Platform
The device types implemented vary depending on use case and the object that needs to be tracked. For example, AirFinder is a complete system, including asset tags, location beacons/access points, a gateway, and a cloud-based IoT platform. Some customers may only need to track assets indoors whereas others only need to track outdoors and some need both indoor and outdoor asset tracking. Some companies may need to track equipment, others, people. That is why it’s important to have hardware that adapts to user-specific needs. When you invest in Link Labs, you’re granted a full operating system to better manage assets that scale to meet business-specific needs.
AirTags, on the other hand, are a standalone product offering that must be used alongside an existing Apple device, which can then be used to access the tracking software application. This approach to IoT makes it difficult to implement at a commercial scale, as all of the components must already be in the user’s possession or purchased separately.
Benefits of IoT Asset Management
Now that we’ve looked into the requirements of an IoT asset management system, it’s clear that AirTags are not a comprehensive IoT platform. If organizations would like to reap the benefits of one, they will need to implement AirFinder.
