LPWAN

Which LPWAN do you use for an emergency call button?  

LPWAN-Emergency-Button

First of all, we have to establish whether the mobile emergency call button is to be used locally in a building, on a company campus, or nationwide in a European or a non-European country. In this article, we will first limit the mobile emergency button to use in Germany. The design for Germany can easily […]

Tracking indoor and outdoor by GNSS and cell ID

Tracking test: Main trip to Amsterdam

Field test: tracking indoor and outdoor In order to demonstrate the tracking goods and assets across borders, a field test was executed over several days in different countries and different methods of transport. In addition to delivery vehicles and cars, trams and walking were also used. The car was parked in an underground car park […]

NB-IoT for smart bin / intellegent container

akorIoT SensPRO - NB-IoT , LTE-M, GPRS reference design

Enquiry for a smart waste container We have already developed many antennas for metal containers on GSM, UMTS, NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRaWAN and Sigfox. For us the radio technology does not make a big difference. The akorIoT SensPRO is already a reference design for such a smart bin. Request for the smart waste bin Hi Harald, […]

Why to use NB-IoT instead of LoRaWAN or Sigfox?

Why NB-IoT instead or LoRaWAN and Sigfox

Why now NB-IoT instead of LoRaWAN or Sigfox? There are hundreds of reasons for NB-IoT and hundreds against LoRaWAN and Sigfox. Below is a typical example. The potential customer already prefers NB-IoT and we can deliver NB-IoT with fallback to GSM. In Germany there is no Sigfox Indoor in my city. In the three neighbouring […]
