CASE STUDY The Result With the ability to integrate LoRaWAN and BMS at the edge of DFS' IoT network, global associates delivered to DFS a complete on-premises hybrid IoT / BMS solution that optimizes energy efciency at each site. And because SmartServer IoT has an intuitive cloud interface, DFS can control the bigger picture: they can easily implement changes at one site, a group of sites, or globally in response to changing conditions or environmental regulations. SmartServer IoT, with its open, multi-protocol architecture, delivered quantiable benets to both global associates and DFS. global trialed the operationally focused digital twin solution at several locations, and within less than a year, demonstrated signicant energy savings: global associates continues to roll out the solution to additional DFS sites. Unique features in the SmartServer IoT make this a painless process. All that's needed is to copy/paste the reference build, then provision the specic devices at each site. 30% total energy reduction ~33% electricity savings for a typical retail store ~26% savings on gas usage for a typical retail store LoRaWAN® is a mark used under license from the LoRa Alliance.

"Thanks to its highly integrated design, the SmartServer IoT platform simplied and accelerated our task. We exceeded our customer's expectations with respect to energy savings and we estimate that the company will see a return on its capital investment within 14 months, or even less when you take capital allowances into consideration." Paul Wethereld CEO global associates Future Plans DFS and global associates are looking at new use cases to further DFS' sustainability goals, including a project to gather plant operations data to move DFS toward more a proactive maintenance program. The companies are also working on machine learning and AI algorithms to enable future use cases and improvements. The system can also harness the data to benet areas beyond facility maintenance and operations, with potential use cases in business operations, nance, marketing and more. The open and exible approach enabled by the SmartServer IoT enables creation of any number of applications and services to power an endless number of valuable use cases.
