HIVE-ZOX selects Sierra Wireless LPWA module for Global Cold Chain Monitoring Solution

Sierra Wireless HL78 Series Module Integrated with HIVE-ZOX Tracking Solution for seamless Global Connection and real-time visibility of COVID vaccine shipments.

Sierra Wireless, a world-leading provider of IoT solutions, announced today that their HL78 Series LPWA module has been selected by HIVE-ZOX International to provide global connectivity and real-time visibility to their cold chain monitoring solution.

The solution is currently being used for monitor shipments of COVID vaccines and provide quality control throughout the supply chain, worldwide.

Sierra Wireless’ multi-mode LPWA modules offer best-in-class performance for global LTE-M, NB-IoT and 2G networks, providing seamless global connectivity to the HIVE-ZOX solution. They offer a wide range of bands for scalability around the world, and their high transmission power ensures a robust connection, even in challenging underground or remote locations.

The HL78 Series provides cost-effective, secure, and best-in-class power performance for low-bandwidth IoT applications. It has variants that support the latest Cat-M1 / NB2 3GPP Release 14 standard, GNSS for precise placement, 2G fallback for global coverage, a secure element for an extra layer of security “said Olivier Pauzet, VP of Product & IoT Solutions, Sierra Wireless.

“With extended reach beyond traditional mobile, the HL78 series is ideal for real-time fixed or mobile applications such as active or cold chain tracking, to ensure that products are not compromised and that there is complete transparency throughout the journey.”

“Initially, we worked with 3G and 4G communications, but quickly realized we needed a global next-generation mobile IoT networking solution to track and monitor assets,” said Charles Bourbonnais, CEO and co-founder, HIVE-ZOX International. “We chose Sierra Wireless’ HL7802 LPWA module to meet our global connectivity needs after they were recommended to us.”

“The module enables 2G fallback for truly global communications and also includes GNSS for location,” continued Mr. Bourbonnais. “Furthermore, the technical team has been available regularly to help us with every aspect of development and integration and to review any issues and the priority deliveries for ourselves with the worldwide supply chain shortage and constraints so that we were able to push “Sierra has proven to be a trusted partner and their solution has been very effective.”

Based in Switzerland, HIVE-ZOX International creates innovative technology using the Sierra Wireless LPWA module to track and monitor products across their supply chains in real time. The HIVE-ZOX solution is a cloud-based platform that offers connected Monitoring as a Service (cMaaS) to global supply chains, from end to end at the product level; track, identify and monitor environmental conditions for transport and storage and provide 24/7 visibility. The solution helps ensure quality control, reduces spoilage and waste, improves performance, ensures compliance with industry regulations, saves time and costs and guarantees product quality and safety of assets throughout the journey.
