The massive growth of digital technologies and hybrid networks has put the IoT industry in an advantageous position. And the concomitant developments in 5G have only enhanced the industry’s influence in the modern business world. However, IoT devices’ blind adoption would be a misstep and can lead to adverse business outcomes. Any company planning to invest in IoT has to ensure that they have covered all the bases in terms of network agility and scalability, system interference across radio networks, and suitable hardware that meets all the connectivity requirements. To that end, they need to be proactive in implementing the right antenna for their IoT products. An optimized antenna ensures superior wireless performance, reduces battery consumption, and provides extended network range and high data rates.
CoreIoT Technologies offers best-in-class antenna and RF passive component technology solutions designed for IoT devices, regardless of their complexity. Led by Dr. Vamsi K. Palukuru, an academician and antenna industry veteran, CoreIoT provides antennas for a range of networks such as cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ultra-wideband RFID, based on its clients’ needs. “Built on the latest industry standards and best practices, our off-the-shelf and custom-designed antennas help clients solve their IoT connectivity problems, comprehensively,” says Dr. Palukuru.
What differentiates CoreIoT is its ability to use cutting-edge antenna simulation software such as CST Microwave Studio 2020 and Ansys HFSS to tune the antennas for greater efficiency. “Modern 3D antenna simulation tools help us in measuring antenna performance accurately without compromising on their design,” adds Dr. Palukuru.
Apart from its technology tools and offerings, CoreIoT separates in the market with a talented and client-centric team that brings a consultative approach to client engagement. The company holds discussions with clients to understand their business and requirements. During the discussions, it learns about the technology used in their IoT devices and materials used to build them. With this knowledge as input, it suggests the best strategy to follow—adopt an off-the-shelf antenna or build a new one from the ground up to meet the business needs. CoreIoT integrates its antenna with the mechanical model of the client’s product, simulates its performance, and optimizes it. Once the design is approved, and the antenna is built, it is extensively tested using innovative network analyzers in anechoic chambers for maximum efficiency. This, in turn, guarantees the highest ROI for the company’s clients.
CoreIoT’s off-the-shelf antennas are designed to operate in various modes, including 4G/5G LTE, GPS, Dual-band/ single band WLAN, and RFID panel. To ensure maximum outcomes from its readymade products for its clients, CoreIoT tunes its off-the-shelf antenna solutions based on the clients’ devices for maximum connectivity, which is unheard of in the networking industry.
In an implementation highlight, a digital transformation services provider INNOMINDS engaged CoreIoT to find the best antenna that could improve the performance and connectivity of their wireless product used for the company’s Desi Device project. CoreIoT analyzed the client’s product and simulated its end-to-end mechanics to identify the antenna that best suited the product and the project.
As an outcomes-driven company, CoreIoT continues to thrive in today’s COVID-19 times. While other companies are witnessing low growth and operations are at a standstill, CoreIoT has its hands full with multiple projects. “We are working with many wireless manufacturers to custom design new antennas, and they will enter the production stage once the COVID-19 starts to subside,” says Dr. Palukuru. Marching ahead, CoreIoT looks forward to developing new off-the-shelf products such as RFID panel antennas and multi-band GPS antennas and 5G antennas and expanding its team to serve an expanding clientele.
