Cavli Wireless is committed to revolutionizing cellular IoT connectivity with robust, cost-effective, and smart connectivity modules pre-loaded with global cellular connectivity. For several years, Orange Business has provided Cavli cellular connectivity worldwide. The ‘Orange Connected’ label that Cavli Wireless can now display on its devices as part of the Orange Connected validation program shows that they have been tested to function effectively on the Orange network.
The first modules to receive the ‘Orange Connected’ label of performance authentication include the Cavli C16QS-EA in Europe and its global counterpart, the Cavli C16QS-WW module. Both are low-power LTE Cat 1.bis modules targeted at the automotive and logistics industries.
The tests used in the Orange validation process are more extensive than those used by standards organizations. This includes more extensive real-world and operational testing alongside quality and security guarantees.
The program is open to all Orange IoT business partners and provides a single point of contact for several tests. Devices undergo an assessment stage and are then put through compliance and control testing in a laboratory and in the field. This includes interoperability and energy consumption. If successful, the device is awarded the ‘Orange Connected’ label, which can be promoted on devices, marketing materials, and websites. Validated devices will also feature in the Orange IoT worldwide catalog.
Enhancing industrial preventive maintenance
Cavli Wireless and Orange Business technologies already enable enterprises to advance IoT capabilities. This includes enabling enterprises to implement preventive measures for potential equipment failures by allowing real-time monitoring and automation.
One illustrative use case is that of a leading provider of predictive and preventive maintenance solutions in the UK, which has incorporated Cavli’s IoT modules. These modules are utilized for the remote monitoring of bolted assets in the rail, mining, and energy sectors within Africa.
The Cavli cellular IoT module features an integrated eSIM for global connectivity and compatibility with the Hubble connectivity and modem management cloud platform with the MQTT broker service that streamlines module management, connectivity, and billing services. Orange Business connectivity capabilities help to provide quick, seamless onboarding of devices to the cloud, intelligent remote eSIM provisioning, and over-the-air updates.
Powering sustainable transport
Cavli Wireless and Orange Business are also powering transport manufacturers with seamless communications capabilities. For instance, Cavli Wireless works with a motorcycle manufacturer in Asia to equip smart bikes and electric scooters with a telematics control unit powered by one of its IoT modules. Orange Business connectivity features are helping to provide advanced vehicle communication and real-time data analysis.
The module includes LTE Cat 1 and integrated eSIM technology for seamless global connectivity and integrates with the Hubble connectivity and modem management cloud platform with module orchestration and monitoring for comprehensive fleet and connectivity management. Enhanced features include emergency firmware updates and an Assisted Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for faster location services.
New horizons for IoT
“The future of IoT has the potential to be limitless. Our partnership with Orange Business enables us to help innovate devices that can move over an unrestricted wide range, opening up opportunities for innovative new IoT applications,” explains Akhil A Zeeb, Chief Product Officer, Cavli Wireless. “The ‘Orange Connected’ label for performance authentication gives our customers confidence that they are using solutions that have undergone rigorous testing to ensure secure and seamless connectivity in various settings.”
