Customer case: Storage management

Traditional wireless tags normally have range challenges. That problem disappears when you use the wireless mesh network NeoMESH as a tag:

Tracking value boxes at different locations across the country of South Africa is not necessarily an easy task. With support from local distributor CST Electronics, cash-in-transit company AmPlus decided to use NeoMesh to solve the problem, utilizing the autonomous feature of the network, allowing for moving nodes.

Value boxes are travelling from local hubs with special AmPlus transport to clients every day. Cash and other valuables are picked up and then safely shipped to its destination and unloaded. The box, after having done its duty, returns to the closest possible hub. That hub can be anywhere in the country.

Each value box is equipped with a NeoCortec module, able to run for years on a small battery. At each hub a NeoMESH gateway detects which box enters or leaves this particular location. When a box returns it automatically becomes a part of the MESH network at that particular location by connecting to other similar boxes. Because of the nature of NeoMESH, the distance from each box to the gateway does not really matter as data is being relayed from one box to the other until it reaches the destination.

Thus the MESH structure overcomes the range challenge that comes with traditional tag applications.
