What are the different listing categories?
This category contains listings describing more or less complete IoT solutions. Hardware (devices) and software (platforms/dash borads) bundled in a package. Customers purchasing IoT Solutions usually receive visualized data on a screen, and are not necessarily involved in how the data ended up there. IoT Solution listings highlight what different suppliers can do for their customers, what challenges can be bridged, and what benefits can be derived from their bundled IoT Solutions.
Here are some tips on what to include in a IoT Solution Listing:
Some tips on what can be included in the detailed description of a Solution:
· An introduction to the solution
· Typical customers/industries/end users/benefiters of the solution
· Typical reasons or motives behind investing in the solution
· Embedded youtube video link
Challenge or problem: Describe the challenges or problems that the solution can solve
Solution: Describe how the solution can solve the challenges or problems above
Result: Describe the results, benefits or added values that can be achieved through solving the problems above with the solution
Included in solution: Describe devices, platforms and/or other components included in the Solution
This category contains listings describing Devices and Sensors. IoT Device listings highlight device properties, functionalities and suitable applications for devices, as well as who to contact in order to purchase them.
For IoT Device listings, please follow the following taxonomy guidelines in the title.
Main device functionality - device name (Acces technology®)
Indoor Temperature Sensor - Netmore A1 (LoRaWAN®)
In this category, suppliers can highlight their platforms. An IoT Platform can in a sense be describes as a complete turnkey ready solution (an IoT Solution), without the hardware. IoT Platforms are oftentimes capable of combining several communication protocols, as well as several different types of sensors. Listings in this category can describe the properties, supported protocols, added benefits and common uses of IoT Platforms from different suppliers. As well as who to talk to in order to get a demo or to purchase the platform.
In this category you will find listings describing what we at Netmore have to offer when it comes to connectivity. Whether you need LoRaWAN coverage for a certain IoT project, M2M SIM Cards for global use or an Open Access 5G Network - you can contact us directly and we will help you out.
The layout and structure of a Success Story is similar to that of an IoT Solution. The difference between Success Stories and IoT Solutions is that, when an IoT Solution listing describes what a supplier CAN DO for a customer, a Success Story listing describes what a supplier successfully HAS DONE for a customer. In other words; Success Storys are to be viewed as reference material from real life. Success Story listing can describe anything related to LoRaWAN. Whether it is a large scale deployment with measurable savings or other benefits, or an ongoing project in smaller scale. I does not matter in what network or country they take place. As long as they involve LoRaWAN in some way, and can showcase a real-life project - they are welcome as listings in this category.
Here are some tips on what to include in a Success Story Listing:
Some tips on what can be included in the detailed description of a Success Story:
· An introduction to what was done and with whom (specific names are optional)
· An introduction to the initial situation, or the reasons behind initiating the project
· A description of the requirements (development, customization, design, installation, functionalities etc.)
· Embedded youtube video link
Challenge or problem: Describe the challenges or problems that was solved in this case, that you and/or the benefiter were faced with and/or common challenges or problems within the industry/use area.
Solution: Describe how the challenges or problems above was solved in this case
Result: Describe the results, benefits or added values that was achieved by solving the problems or challenges above.
Other IoT Services
This category (and its sub categories) will be used to showcase IoT related services, such as device installation and consultant services.
Requests can be posted by all certified members in the marketplace. Customers can post requests describing IoT products or services that they may not have found elsewhere. Suppliers can then adress that specific customer and request any way they find suitable. Similarly, if a supplier is looking for components to tie a solution together for a customer, a request can be posted to find the right partner.
Are there any rules for creating listings?
We will focus on LoRaWAN as access technology in the initial stages of Netmore Market. Anything involving LoRaWAN is OK to upload. We will add other access technologies in time.
We will not showcase offerings describing gateways for the time being. Use Cases including gateways and connectivity are OK to upload.
Listings of products or services should be as product/service specific and clear as possible. There should also be an easily understandable value behind every listing describing a product, service or use-case.
An IoT Device listing should (if nothing else is agreed upon) describe one device, or one device type.
Keep company presentations in the designated fields for such information in listings and in your company profile.
All listings are reviewed by Netmore before they can appear on the main page. Listings that are not in line with our policy or the rules described in this segment will not be approved. Netmore reserves the right to deny any listing or listing update that does not adhere to our policy, the rules described in this segment or common sense and courtesy.
