A truly scalable stack with the potential to digitize billions of things.

The rapid evolution of Ping’s stack has closed the cost delta that was holding back widespread adoption and ultimately, scalability, within the IoT. There are two main components to delivering this breakthrough:

  1. Cost-Effective IoT Devices: We carried out years of R&D on the hardware stack and more importantly, power engineering. The improvements we gained in this area led to cost reductions and an ability to offer devices at much lower than market costs. This cost reduction enables a much larger addressable market. The cheaper the solution, the more…

There’s endless hype about Sigfox, LoRA, NB-IoT, LTE-m, 5G, blockchain, IPV6, sensor design, machine vision and deep neural networks; all driving competition for every layer in the IoT stack — from chipset and module vendors to networks and platform services. The consensus regarding ARPUs (Average Revenue Per User) is that $1.00 per device/per month, is the sweet spot to drive scalable adoption. This pricing opens up new markets and new business models. It drives innovation and unlocks the enormous potential to digitise, automate and improve trade, medicine, healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, energy systems and our environment.

The advancing IoT (Internet of…

Mesh Network Simulation of 300 Devices.

We are in the process of further extending battery life, facility penetration and bandwidth; with the introduction of mesh-networking. This R&D is the first stage of a disruptive edge-networking protocol.

We ran a mesh networking simulation on 300 devices. The method employs mesh topologies for combining IoT devices and neighbouring devices, with a single point of contact, or master device. These devices become nodes in a mesh network. Each node can securely connect with its neighbour and relay state data. The master node can apply lightweight inferencing, filtering, and summarising of network data; then connect with an edge-node (Connector) to…

We are excited to announce our upcoming integration with Chainlink, the market-leading blockchain oracle network connecting real-world data to smart contracts. Our integration involves PingNET using Chainlink’s decentralized oracle network to make IoT data available across various blockchain networks, opening up a wide variety of new use cases in supply chain, trade finance, shipping insurance, and more.

Understanding PingNET and its Need for Blockchain Oracles

According to Gartner, the next two years will see 30% of blockchain initiatives in supply chain refocus activities towards prioritizing physical product data capture through various mechanisms such as IoT sensors and devices. IoT sensors capture state data and push it to a…

Present-day blockchains are not architected to interface directly with significant components of the Internet of Things. Transaction concurrency on the blockchain is exposing substantial issues in respect of a harmonious confluence with the IoT. Concurrency is too clunky, costly and power-hungry for energy-restrained devices; thus, a sensible approach is required to secure the communication layer between the IoT and blockchain. Any advancement must consider energy, security, scale and cost.

A decentralized and practical architecture is required to bridge the gap between the edge and blockchain layer. This will result in a data-sharing exchange, where organizations can design and run peer-to-peer…

About Ping

Ping was founded in 2016 as an R&D company to develop innovative solutions for the Internet of Things. The founding team harnessed decades of engineering experience and applied it to a disruptive asset tracking technology, initially focussed on the transport pallet market. Demand grew within wider applications and we realised the technology could be applied to other verticals, predominantly within the material handling equipment (MHE) and supply chain markets. …
