When pigeons tweet – birds in IoT

Pigeons wearing wireless pollution-monitoring devices will report back via Twitter

Pigeons don’t tweet, they make cooing noises. They don’t wear backpacks either. Usually. Well, say hello to the new breed of backpack wearing, tweeting pigeons that might just save lives.   If you live in a city there’s a good chance you’ll be sharing it most days with a large number of pigeons. And generally […]

400 students have already enrolled at the IoT-University

Direction in LPWAN

The IoT-University was launched just one month ago. In just four weeks there are more than 400 students on the course. Students want to learn and to educate them we need more mentors who love to share; we have space for eight more to join us. If you have something to share, join us. Become […]

LPWAN comparison – Weightless-P vers SIGFOX vers LoRa

Sigfox, Lora, Weightless P compared to each other

For comparison, the Hata Model was used. Hata is the most widely used radio frequency propagation model for predicting the behaviour of cellular transmissions in built up areas. Settings for the simulation on Hata model LPWAN Base Station Height = 30m End-Device Height = 0.5m Simulation results for LPWAN on Weightless P, LoRa and SIGFOX   If […]

Comparison of LPWAN like SIGFOX, LoRaWAN, Weightless P and NB-IoT/LTE-Cat-NB1 – Tuesday, March 14, 2017

embedded-world-2016

Tuesday, March 14, 2017, I will compare LPWAN like SIGFOX, LoRaWAN, Weightless P and NB-IoT/LTE-Cat-NB1 at embedded world in Nuremberg. Tuesday, March 14, 2017, 09:30 – 12:30 Session 03/I Connectivity – Wireless Technologies I Program: http://www.embedded-world.eu/program.html 09:30 – 10:00 Comparison of LPWAN Like SIGFOX, LoRaWAN, Weightless P and NB-IoT/LTE-Cat-NB1 Harald Naumann, Tekmodul 10:00 – 10:30 […]

Antenna Tutorial -Self-made PCB antenna for NB-IoT and GSM for cost US$ 0

Self Made Embedded Antenna Design versus Chip Antenna The wireless Internet of Things has a need for inexpensive wireless modules and antennas. An LTE-Cat-NB1-module (NB-IoT) will cost less than US$ 6 at 1K order. A self-made NB-IoT antenna on PCB could cost US$ 0. Within 60 minutes you will learn which is commercially and technically […]

Which embedded antenna to select for your LPWAN / NB-IoT module?

25x25x4 mm ceramic patch antenna for LPWAN

Embedded LPWAN & NB-IoT antenna consideration On first quick look the choosing of the right integrated antenna for LPWAN & NB-IoT looks easy. In comparison to the large number of LTE bands the selection is simple because LPWAN (e.g. LoRaWAN, Sigfox, Weightless N) and NB-IoT (EC-GSM and NB-IoT) are on 900 MHz. There is no […]

Is Sigfox / LoRa the new WiMAX? – A comparison to LTE-M and NB-LTE

LPWAN versus LTE-M / NB-LTE

I found the question “Is Sigfox / LoRa the new WiMAX?” on the Nokia networks blog: https://blog.networks.nokia.com/mobile-networks/2015/10/21/is-sigfoxlora-the-new-wimax/ From hype to niche technology The subtitle of Nokia’s blog post was ”From hype to niche technology”. What is your opinion? Will we see wireless hype again? Sigfox and LoRa are LPWAN (Low Power WAN) technologies. Sigfox and […]
