Confidex, a Beontag company partners with an old friend from Tampere. Wirepas is a Tampere-based IoT company with extensive experience in mesh technology.

Confidex has strengthened its tracking devices towards active tracking with Wirepas Mesh tags. Wirepas will help bring robustness to high-quality tracking in harsh industrial environments.

Confidex and Wirepas share a history with Wirepas-based pilots in smart tracking. Confidex has tested and evaluated Wirepastechnology in multiple pilots across the globe in the past. Now Confidex is seeing the market picking up well for low infrastructure cost Wirepas-based tracking. Wirepas Mesh works as a plug-and-play connectivity allowing devices to create an intelligent, robust, and self-healing mesh data network without any need for wired installations. Confidex is expected to work in the automotive industry, airports, and mining. The Wirepas Mesh connectivity will be used in the Viking series to track assets in the harshest environments and in a wide temperature range. These off-the-shelf tags can be customized and are already widely certified for many countries.
