Sponsored by Businesswire

 (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance
analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms,
announced that Axino
, an innovative software and systems integrator for the
planning and implementation of comprehensive IT solutions, has
integrated Semtech’s LoRa®
devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology)
its smart refrigeration solutions to track food temperature for the food
retail industry. Axino’s LoRa-based solution has been deployed globally
including with Migros, Switzerland’s largest supermarket chain. Since
deployment of a LoRa-based solution, Migros has measured hundreds of
thousands of Euros of savings per year.

“Semtech’s LoRa Technology is an enabling platform which provided us
just with the right resilient wireless signal to be able to roll out our
solution in. LoRa Technology provides us with the right plug-and-play
characteristics for an easy to deploy and maintain solution, making this
solution very attractive to potential customers,” said Ihab Hourani, CTO
at Axino Solutions. “For smart refrigeration solutions, LoRa Technology
allows accurate and consistent monitoring of temperature data. Axino’s
artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms utilize this data to predict
core temperatures of different food items and automatically adjust
temperature levels to comply with safety regulations. As a result,
customers reduce their amount of wasted product and increase their
return on investment.”

In the food retail industry, food must be carefully monitored to ensure
shelf life is maximized and it remains safe to consume. Additionally,
food often has a long journey that is transported by a refrigerated
truck to the supermarket, traveling from temperature-controlled
warehouse to the final shelf. Many factors over the course of this
journey may affect food safety and quality, including improper handling
by personnel and inaccurate refrigerator calibration. Axino’s LoRa-based
temperature sensors quickly deploy into refrigeration infrastructure
through a magnet with no external wiring. The sensor monitors core
temperature data in real-time and is accurate to one degree Celsius.
Sensors can be preprogrammed to adjust individual refrigerator unit
temperatures thereby maintaining a consistent temperature and keeping
food safe. Real-time data evaluation and autonomous refrigeration
adjustment help eliminate human error, prolong food shelf life and save
customers money.

“LoRa-based solutions, such as those from Axino, are simple to deploy
and provide the capacity to accurately and consistently track data for
years at a time,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of Internet of Things
(IoT) for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “The smart
supply chain and logistics IoT market could be worth as much as $6.3
trillion by 2025
. LoRa Technology’s ease of deployment, scalability
and cost-saving capabilities make it a de facto leader for IoT, and well
equipped to lead this space.”

Axino will be presenting at the LoRa Alliance’s LoRaWAN® Live and Market
Place. Visit here
