Mobile data opportunities in construction are plentiful, as companies look to improve their waste management, reduce their construction costs and improve employee safety.
On a construction site, an array of tools are used by trained operatives to complete jobs at each stage of the project. Cranes, for example, need to be fitted with data loggers to record key operational parameters so lifting operations can be reviewed and monitored.
Asset-tracking devices can now be glued to almost any construction tool. Bluetooth technology combined with an app on a smartphone allows for a near-real-time tracking of location. It also records where the device was last seen should it go missing.
Push-to-talk radios, monitoring and recording devices all help improve communications and support safe systems of work.
CCTV cameras as well as intrusion alarm systems are often used to monitor sites remotely.
Partners who sell solutions to the construction industry are partnering with companies such as Jola for a wide range of 4G data packages and preconfigured 4G routers. Data SIMs with static IP addresses allow users to access their CCTV camera footage when fixed-line connectivity is not available. M2M/IoT SIMs are used in tracking devices.
