Today's supply chains are being stressed by enormous volumes, extremely high speeds, high levels of interconnectedness, and low margins. In addition, as industries are engaging closely with consumers, supply chains need to respond more rapidly to demands and market trends. Given this volatility, real-time visibility at a granular level is essential.
Fortunately, a new class of Ambient Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology, which delivers pervasive connectivity to products that were previously disconnected, can help supply chains provide that much-needed granular real-time visibility.
In this whitepaper, ABI Research provides comprehensive insight into how Ambient IoT enables most items in a supply chain to be connected to the Internet, delivering real-time triggers and information about location and condition at a minimal cost, using existing wireless infrastructure, without human intervention.
