Rental units with cooling, freezing and heating equipment from Coolworld made smarter by IoT

Coolworld Rentals is a full-service rental specialist in cooling, freezing and heating equipment. Since its foundation in 1993, the organization has grown into an international player offering cooling and freezing cells, and industrial solutions for process cooling, climate control and heating. The company offers flexible and reliable solutions for temporary capacity problems, events, equipment failure or when renovating or overhauling permanent systems. With a wide range of rental solutions, they are available to customers 24/7 for the right rental cooling or heating.

Last year, Coolworld was looking for a solution to make its rental units smarter by using a reliable 4G IoT solution in combination with 24×7 support for business-critical applications. By using Cradlepoint's 4G robust routers, each unit can now be controlled and monitored remotely. High-quality network equipment and reliable connections have made employees' lives a lot more efficient and less laborious. And their customers benefit from that.

Business Challenge

The great diversity of Coolworld's customers shows how strongly rental cooling and heating are connected to all sectors. Internationally, we work together with leading companies from industry, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food, retail and distribution. The cooling and freezing cells have been specially developed in-house for rental purposes. Each unit is available ready-made from stock, is movable, easy to clean and easily accessible. The range consists of cold stores, freezer cells, shock freezers, tempering cold stores, tempering freezers and ultra-low temperature freezers. Because the rental cooling and heating is also used for mission-critical applications, it is always necessary to monitor the units online. A malfunction in the unit can quickly become a major cost item if products are not refrigerated and spoil. To prevent this, Coolword offers its customers a unique service that consists of 24 steps 7/2; alarm follow-up from the control room if a malfunction occurs and the provision of cooling analyses. For example, temperature graphs are provided that the customer uses to ensure quality.

Coolworld was looking for a solution to be able to access and monitor its rental units even better remotely by using a reliable 4G IoT solution in combination with 24×7 support for business-critical applications. By using Cradlepoint's robust 4G routers, each unit can now be accessed and monitored remotely. In this way, Coolworld can guarantee its services to customers by monitoring the units day and night and, if necessary, informing the customer about a malfunction or, for example, power failure.

IoT Solution

Management of the routers

Remote management of the routers and the ability to guarantee a very secure mobile internet connection is guaranteed by the management and application platform: NetCloud. This allows Coolworld to quickly deploy and dynamically manage networks in geographically dispersed locations, as well as continuous monitoring.

Integrating Netcloud with the routers provides the opportunity to improve productivity, increase reliability and reduce costs. This way, configurations can easily be pushed to an entire group. In this way, error sensitivity is excluded and fine-tuning of settings can even take place online in the cooling/freezing and freezing containers, something that is common in the meat industry, for example, due to product dependence.

IoT data sim

To unlock data, 4G/5G routers need a data plan that provides high coverage and uptime. Network coverage, availability and network redundancy are essential for Coolworld. For this reason, the Comgate esim was chosen. These IoT/M2M SIM cards can be used worldwide, are multi-operator and multi-network. In this way, the strongest available network signal is always used.

The Capestone engineers have extensively tested for the implementation of the 4G routers from Cradlepoint and the SIM cards. “In order to guarantee our service, we like to work with partners who have specialist knowledge, high-quality equipment combined with short lines. The right tools, such as Cradlepoint's NetCloud, make our colleagues' lives a lot more efficient and less laborious, which we can ultimately pass on to our customers. Ultimately, it is about reliability towards our customers,” says Eddy van der Kamp, Director Sales & Marketing.
