Published

 on

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions-provider Zyter has announced that the company is implementing a state-of-the-art, next-generation smart warehouse for OneScreen in San Diego. The warehouse is set to be equipped with products from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., including an LTE-private network, robust warehouse management system, autonomous mobile robots (AMR), AR/VR technologies, IoT sensors, and more. 

These new products will help the smart warehouse increase operational efficiencies, enable automated inventory control, improve safety and security, and save resources for both employees and customers. 

Zyter and Qualcomm 

Zyter will be implementing its Smart Warehouse module running on the Zyter SmartSpaces IoT platform. The SmartSpaces platform collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies for the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program ecosystem, and it integrates and consolidates data from IoT devices and applications. This is a seamless interface that helps break down data silos. The Smart Warehouse will also contain the private LTE CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) network cell sites that are powered by Qualcomm RAN Platforms for Small Cells. 

Trackers, cameras, and sensors will be supplied to the smart warehouse by the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program ecosystem, while Zyter will be responsible for implementing and deploying the LTE private network. Zyter will also manage and install the integration of all sensors, hardware, and the warehouse management system (WMS).

Leadership’s Thoughts

Sanjeet Pandit is senior director and global head of smart cities at Qualcomm Technologies. 

“We are pleased Zyter has chosen Qualcomm Technologies’ IoT products for another IoTaaS commercial deployment with the smart warehouse for OneScreen,” said Pandit. “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.” 

Sufian Munir is chief executive officer at OneScreen. 

“I am pleased to work with Zyter and Qualcomm Technologies, utilizing the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite to enable a smart warehouse in San Diego.  Implementation of the digital twin, autonomous mobile robots (AMR), AR/VR use cases, and IoT sensors will make this a state-of-the-art operation,” said Munir. “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.”  

Sanjay Govil is founder and chief executive officer of Zyter.

“This smart warehouse project exemplifies how Qualcomm Technologies and its IoT ecosystem are essential to enabling the global digital transformation of many different industries,” said Govil. “Bringing IoT, artificial intelligence and virtual reality technologies to warehouses takes operations to a level never seen before.”
