1. Background

The Coffee Cloud solution consists of a plug & play IoT telemetry device to easily retrofit all types of professional barista machines and many models of fully automatic coffee machines. The solution also includes a sophisticated real-time monitoring platform, accessible via smartphone, tablet, or PC. After installation, it can count the amount of coffee beans used or cups served. The solution also contains a coffee quality tool to better manage coffee grinder settings or educate baristas. The stock management tool helps to optimize order and delivery of supplies.

2. Challenge

The solution is designed to work independently from any local network to minimize installation effort and a maximum of reliability. It connects via cellular mobile network rather than Wi-Fi.  This eliminates the hassle of connecting on Wi-Fi.

 

Coffee Cloud Telemetric Device

 

Installation of the retrofit solution can be provided by any technical maintenance personnel in about 20 minutes. Since Coffee Cloud is delivered internationally, a simple and global connectivity solution is required for easy management and billing of the product.

3. 1NCE Solution

With the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate, Coffee Cloud Technologies benefits from a simple multi-bearer SIM-card and connectivity solution that comes at a fixed price worldwide with no additional costs for roaming or setup. A one-time fee allows instant connectivity for the IoT telemetry device over its entire lifecycle in more than 100 countries via 3G, 4G or LTE-M. The device is ready-to-use after installation within the secure cellular environment and does not rely on any local WiFi connection.

“We want to help our customers to optimize their business. 1NCE did exactly that for our own business with an easy to calculate and worldwide available cellular connectivity solution. It’s just as plug & play as our product.”

Miroslav Kovač, General Manager, Coffee Cloud Technologies LTD
