According to the analysts, by 2020, about 20 billion IoT sensors and devices will be networked. Our goal is to implement this "Internet connection of the things" for our customers as secure, power-saving and cost-effective as possible.
Hence, our focus is on making use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN), such as LoRa™ technology. LoRa enables battery-powered nodes with battery lifetimes of several months or even years - depending on the actual application.
Our wireless transmission via LoRa uses licence exempt frequency spectrums which are available worldwide. The frequency bands are in the ranges of
By using these sub-gigahertz bands, we reach a significantly better coverage and penetration than in case of the 2.4 or 5.8 GHz ISM bands.
In particular, this applies to sensors and devices that are located within buildings.
Based on our R&D in the area of LPWAN nodes and gateways, we create tailored end-to-end solutions for our customers.
These solutions include flexible and smart sensor units, which detect environmental data, e.g. temperature, moisture, smoke or vibrations. In addition, positioning data and human access, such as withdrawal of goods, are being monitored and submitted. Thanks to a dedicated signalling, logistics processes like picking and packing are supported by the sensing units ("Pick-By-Light").
Beyond the device firmware, we offer the development platform-agnostic (Android, iOS, Windows) applications for monitoring and control of your business processes.
In conjunction with a tailored back-end server software, you obtain a complete package which is well tuned to your existing ERP infrastructure.
