Zyter has announced they are implementing a next-generation smart warehouse for OneScreen, located in San Diego. The warehouse will be equipped with products from Qualcomm Technologies and include technologies such as an LTE-based private network, implementation of a digital twin, robust warehouse management system, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), AR/VR technologies, IoT sensors, and more.
The warehouse aims to increase warehouse operational efficiencies, enable automated inventory control, enhance safety and security within the facility, and save time and money for OneScreen employees and customers. The companies said the project exemplifies how Qualcomm Technologies and its IoT ecosystem are critical to enabling the global digital transformation of industries with a differentiated approach that leverages the growing number of smart devices that make up the connected intelligent edge.
For the project, Zyter will be responsible for implementing its Smart Warehouse module running on the Zyter SmartSpaces IoT platform. The platform breaks down silos of information by integrating and consolidating data from IoT devices and applications in a seamless interface. The warehouse will contain the private LTE CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) network cell sites, powered by Qualcomm RAN Platforms for Small Cells, and CPEs featuring the Qualcomm Fixed Wireless Access Platform, with an upgrade path to 5G. Other members are supplying trackers, cameras, and sensors needed for enabling the smart warehouse.
“We are pleased Zyter has chosen Qualcomm Technologies’ IoT products for another IoTaaS commercial deployment with the smart warehouse for OneScreen,” said Sanjeet Pandit, senior director and global head of smart cities, Qualcomm Technologies. “To directly address the fragmented nature of the IoT industry, our unique Qualcomm IoT Services Suite is helping to bridge the gap for IoT service providers and entities looking to efficiently and effectively deploy smart solutions and is revolutionizing the way businesses and entities modernize their practices.”
“I am pleased to work with Zyter and Qualcomm Technologies, utilizing the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite to enable a smart warehouse in San Diego,” said Sufian Munier, CEO of OneScreen. “Implementation of the digital twin, autonomous mobile robots, AR/VR use cases and IoT sensors will make this a state-of-the-art operation. This next-generation smart warehouse will increase productivity, enable automated inventory control, safety and security within the facility and save time and money for employees and customers.”
