"In the international cold chain transportation of fresh products, it is particularly important for the follow-up management of products, if the temperature and humidity can be completely recorded and tracked in real-time. For data monitoring products, the stability of communication determines the integrity of the recorded data, which is also the advantage of this 4G real-time smart sensor," Tina Sun, general manager of Fresh-key (Shanghai) Technology Co., Ltd, told Freshplaza.
"Currently, the global communication network is not all the same. For example, some places such as New Zealand, Japan, and Taiwan, have withdrawn from the 2G network, and the 4G network is widely used. The global network communication environment is different, making it difficult to stabilize data records. This is the difficulty of cold chain logistics. Therefore, we launched sensor products using the 4G network earlier to meet this demand."
"The 4G network can cover most of the countries and regions in the global international transportation in a large area so that the data can be kept complete. For example, when fresh bananas are transported from Ecuador to Japan, the network environments of the countries they pass through are different. For example, the network compatibility of sensor products is not high, and switches will occur when passing through countries with different networks, resulting in communication interruptions and affecting data recording and uploading. The 4G real-time smart sensor can solve this difficulty because the 4G CAT1/M technical signal used can cover most countries and regions in the world and has a high degree of compatibility."
According to Tina, because the product uses a communication network with the attributes of the Internet of Things, the data upload rate is fast, the power consumption is low, and the service life can be as long as 90 days, which is enough to cover the needs of most international cold chain transportation. In addition, the product is thin and light and is easy to place. It can be placed in the container and attached to the cargo pallet so that it can be easily found when it arrives at the destination. Also, it can also be attached to the outside of the fruit carton.
