ROCKVILLE, MD (February 24, 2021) – Industrial internet of things leader Machfu today announced that its signature Industrial IoT Service now provides customers with longer-range connectivity to the Machfu Gateway based on LoRa technology. The turnkey, fully-managed end-to-end service is flexible, fast to deploy, and cuts operating costs by 50 percent. Traditionally, collating sensor data from the field has been a significant challenge. Machfu Gateway overcomes these hurdles by using LoRa technology to capture data from many sensors in the field simultaneously over extended ranges, at affordable costs.
“Machfu’s signature IIoT service collects actionable IoT intelligence wherever you need it and delivers easy-to-use cloud-based visualizations and analysis directly to you anytime, anywhere,” said Prakash Chakravarthi, CEO of Machfu. “It has a wide range of applications from monitoring methane emissions from landfills to tank level monitoring in oil and gas well pads to managing water use in large agricultural systems.”
