About Abeeway

We are happy to count on Abeeway as one of the leading vendors in our marketplace, helping us offer some of the best asset devices on the market. Abeeway’s products open the world of IoT (Internet of Things) to a whole new range of possibilities, creating an extensive range of new use cases, some of them unprecedented. 

What is Abeeway? 

Founded in 2014 in Grenoble, France, Abeeway has quickly become a leading tracking device supplier, offering innovative sensors and Iot solutions for multiple use cases. 

Abeeway sprung from the birth of LoRa, a wireless data communication technology developed by Cycleo, a Grenoble-based company acquired by Semtech in 2012. This technology aimed to address the question “How can small volumes of data be sent while device energy, making is battery-life as long as possible, and while reducing costs for operators?” Today, after having answered that question through its groundbreaking trackers, Abeeway continues working on offering the best tracking systems, and has become a leading voice in the market. 

Abeeway is now located on the French Riviera and is part of Europe’s largest and permanently expanding science and technological parks since Sophia Antipolis. Since Abeeway presented its first LoRaWAN trackers in 2015, the company has continuously improved their IoT solutions, developing the first patented Low-power GPS (A-GPS for IoT), as well as data fusion to help optimize localization and power consumption. 

In 2017, Actility, leading LPWAN company, acquired Abeeway, helping to create a portfolio of IoT location services to support service providers and IoT solution vendors globally and along a wide range of industry fields. Abeeway products continue to be available for LoRaWAN networks but becoming part of Actility allowed the company to leverage its worldwide reach to satisfy the massive market demand for IoT location trackers. 

Abeeway is a member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing technology alliance, formed by more than 500 companies developing and promoting this open standard technology. 

Unique value

Abeeway is a market leader for tracking devices. This company offers on-demand geolocation, movement alerts, and geofencing through trackers using GPS signals to determinate location, while offering energy-efficient LoRaWAN communication to deliver exact locations to a tracking application, granting them the differential quality of offering a much longer battery-life. 

IoT use cases for everyday needs

Tracking 

Abeeway provides secure wireless, reliable, cost- and energy-efficient tracking solutions anytime, anywhere, offering a unique advantage compared to other companies by serving a vast variety of use cases by combining different location technologies including GPS and Low-Power GPS, Bluetooth beacons and Wi-Fi “sniffing” and fingerprinting, and network-based TDoA location. This allows customers to optimize their solutions to precisely match the requirements of their target use cases 

Industries 

Processes can gain full visibility leading to a more transparent and controllable supply chain, as Abeeway enables businesses to have a clearer view of the distinct stages in the supply chain, anticipate problems, and prevent them from happening in various industries: transportation and logistics, construction and public works, airports, ports, mines, oil & gas platforms, warehouses, and farms. 

With its integrable geolocation technology, Abeeway makes it possible for businesses to develop their own solutions adapting them to the markets they serve, also helping to increase their profit margins with its ability to lower total costs of production (TCO). 

Consumers 

Abeeway’s main offer is to allow to always know where things are and never losing them. Through Abeeway devices, tracking and securing valuable objects gets simplified. From belongings to pets to loved ones, Abeeway trackers make it possible to know where things are and keep worries at bay. 

Abeeway is supported by the European union 

Abeeway is part of a demonstration project supported by Europe within the framework of the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund, FEDER in French), with the goal to show the benefits of the IoT through large-scale uses of connected solutions for communities, in order to strengthen the leadership of companies in the Auvergne Rhônes-Alpes region in the field of Io. Abeeway signed the agreement in July 2017 in partnership with Cycleo, Bouygues & Objenious, BH technologies, Adeunis RF and Grenoble INP. 

The devices 

Abeeway counts with 6 leading products, and its devices are present in many starter kits developed with partners like AWS, Helium, WMW, and many others. Here is a brief explanation of each of them:
