Set to improve data and connectivity on Island’s mainland, support key manufacturers and logistics, driving pharmaceutical, medical device and aerospace industries.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, November 19, 2020 — Invest Puerto Rico (InvestPR) is pleased to announce its innovative partnership with Everynet BV, the leading Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology pioneer and network operator, on its implementation of a new secure data network improving Puerto Rico’s infrastructure across the island. Everynet launched the network early September, integrating Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance logistics and operations for the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturer through data connectivity.
Everynet offers a secure and detailed network server that gathers data that companies across various industries can analyze to improve their manufacturing facilities and check statuses of critical conditions and of urgent maintenance requirements. The technology will also allow for improved supply chain visibility and logistics tracking once products are in route to other destinations.
Key benefits of Everynet’s network onboarding include:
- Energy-efficient, GPS-free geolocation technology
- Preventive and predictive maintenance to monitor the equipment status within the facility
- An open standard protocol operating in unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) radio band and generating lower connection costs
- Theft prevention tracking throughout the supply chain
“Invest Puerto Rico is eager to showcase the massive opportunity in modernizing the Island’s connectivity with our partner Everynet,” said Michael Gay, InvestPR chief business development officer. “As we look to the future of pharmaceutical manufacturing and other emerging sectors in Puerto Rico, Everynet’s IoT capabilities further positions us as a key manufacturing hub globally. Delivering real-time data to companies, at the scalability Everynet offers, will allow for more process efficiencies with data-led decisions and success for companies and prospects considering doing business with us.”
“We are working hard with Invest Puerto Rico to make companies and individuals aware of the benefits that come from being able to gather previously ignored or unreachable data,” states Myrtha Curiel, Everynet Country Manager in Puerto Rico. “We see the value of our offer, especially in saving limited resources, like water and energy, and granting real time and informed decision-making processes. This is why we are so excited to spread the word on the Island and to have Invest Puerto Rico on our side.”
The IoT network is currently available to companies in several industries across Puerto Rico’s mainland. The system is designed to be highly dependable, with fully managed network backhaul services and battery autonomy of more than 10 years for sensors and actuators. Because of its characteristics, the technology is particularly suitable for smart metering applications in the Utility industry, as well as for Smart City and Smart Building management. The ecosystem of solutions providers is well prepared, ready to solve the most valuable use cases as proven within Everynet’s other national networks.
