Fit For Purpose Solution
  • IoT Devices mainly sensors that transforms an observed physical quantity (temperature, luminosity, movement, etc.) into a digital quantity used by IoT platforms. There is a very wide variety of sensors of all types, connected objects often have the function of capturing these physical quantities at their places of use.

  • Example of sensors: light, presence, proximity, position, displacement, acceleration, rotation, temperature, humidity, sound, vibration, electric, magnetic, chemical, gas, flow, force, pressure, level, ...

 
 

An IoT network will be chosen based on many criteria such as: availability, deployment, maturity, life expectancy, data rate, distance and type of communication, fixed or mobile objects, location of objects, level of security, type of operator. network, battery life, module availability, type of IoT platform, cost (OPEX / CAPEX), maintenance, interoperability….

Personal networks

  • Bluetooth (BLE, BLE Smart, etc…) which allows easy connectivity a few meters away using a very widely distributed communication protocol available natively on a large number of devices

  • ANT +: which is a proprietary protocol, with many industrial partners and very closely linked to sport and well-being

 

Local networks

  • Industrial BLE: derived from consumer Bluetooth made reliable for industry, allows the creation of dense networks in warehouses or the tertiary sector to track goods and sensors, with a typical communication distance of 20 to 200m. Being able to associate BLE labels with beacons, repeaters and routers, these networks allow a very large number of applications, including geolocation inside buildings.

  • RFID Acive: comparable to BLE in constrained industrial environments, makes it possible to connect and geolocate objects in a building. Often complementary to BLE, active RFID uses a non-proprietary protocol free of rights.

  • Zigbee: building mesh network, allowing objects to be connected step by step, based on a proprietary protocol managed by the Zigbee Alliance, often used in home automation to replace electrical wiring (lights, comfort sensors, warning sensors)

  • Z-Wave: mesh network quite similar to Zigbee, also based on an alliance of industrialists ZWave Alliance

  • WiFi Hallow: another mesh network for home automation, also based on IPv6 and a suitable WiFi protocol, a proprietary protocol managed by the WiFi Alliance

  • Dash7: longer-distance network for home automation and automotive, allowing better penetration into buildings at 433MHz and 868Mhz, a proprietary protocol piloted by the Dash7 Alliance.

  • Private LoRa: private cellular networks based on the LoRaWAN protocol, which allows long-distance indoor and outdoor communication of short messages (sensor feedback or location). The interest of this network is to allow objects to leave "private" mode by taking advantage of "public" LoRaWAN networks with a subscription to the services of national and international operators.

 

LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network)

These are the new networks (cellular or not) dedicated to outdoor connected objects. They are ideal for feeding simple information from sensors and location to object management platforms, in the cloud or on private networks.

These networks are based on protocols favoring:

  • Very low consumption (autonomy of 5 to 10 years)

  • The very long communication distance (several km)

  • The right coverage inside buildings

  • The very high density of connectable objects

  • Low operating costs

The main LPWAN networks are:

 

  • Sigfox is a network operated by Sigfox or its partners depending on the country, and which is based on a UNB (Ultra Narrow Band) communication protocol to promote the range and the number of objects connected on the same antenna.

  • LoRawan it uses an open communication protocol managed by the LoRa Alliance, which allows users to create their internal network ( eg an industrial site (see private LoRa in the section above) or to use the various national and international networks of operators.

  • 3GPP: LTE-M, NB-IoT, 5G

  • Collect data: we connect your objects regardless of the communication protocol

  • Store data: your data is stored in a sustainable, efficient and secure manner

  • Restore Data: the data can be displayed as you see fit.

  • Drive your objects: you can send commands, either through the web or mobile interfaces, or automatically based on certain indicators.

  • Analyze: allows other tools to interface with its storage for even more in-depth analyzes (artificial intelligence, business intelligence, etc.).
