Soracom and EXACT Technology work together to ensure that the concrete used to construct highways, bridges, dams, buildings and other large infrastructure projects cures properly and is built to last.
Soracom, Inc., a global provider of advanced IoT connectivity, has partnered with EXACT Technology Corp., a concrete monitoring technology company, to help build future infrastructure projects.
With Soracom’s IoT connectivity, EXACT can ensure that the concrete used to construct highways, bridges, dams, buildings and other large infrastructure projects cures properly and is built to last.
The first seven days of the concrete hardening process are critical. The temperature of the concrete must be maintained consistently throughout the week, otherwise it may crack, let in salt and water, and compromise the longevity of the concrete. EXACT’s technology verifies temperature fluctuations in real time, collects data and alerts project managers through Soracom’s connectivity solutions.
Access to this real-time data allows project managers to make adjustments accordingly by heating or cooling concrete sections as needed. Proper management of the hardening process means infrastructure projects can last up to 125 years without remediation, while projects that are not properly hardened can last half that time.
“With Soracom, we know that when we send SIM cards to a project, they will work immediately,” said Jordan Korenzvit, CEO of EXACT. “There’s no problem with pricing plans, you pay for what you use. Reliable connectivity has been an issue with the previous vendors we’ve used, and Soracom has alleviated all of these concerns by seamlessly providing connectivity where and when we need it, every time.
EXACT monitors more than $ 20 billion in private and public construction projects for its clients, creating data-driven solutions for precast, infrastructure builders and other heavy users of concrete. EXACT’s cloud solutions help customers collect, organize, report, and leverage critical data to increase revenue, reduce costs, and improve quality.
