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, […]

IoT M2M Cookbook – The outlook for embedded antenna design

GSM PCB antenna simulation

The IoT M2M Cookbook contains a simulation of a dual F antenna for cellular. This antenna has been customized several times by customers, or by us on behalf of customers. The Gillette order button using this base design and described in the book supports NB-IoT, LTE-M and GSM from about 750 MHz with 960 MHz […]

From concept to your wireless IoT button

IoT button

The akorIoT Group has a development team with many years of experience in wireless data transmission which today this is termed “Wireless IoT”.  The integration of antennas into enclosures is another area of expertise for the akorIoT Group; in addition to standard antennas such as solderable chip antennas or flex PCB antennas, customer-specific antennas are […]

akorIoT SensPRO – reference design for NB-IoT and LTE-M

akorIoT-SensPRO top view

akorIoT is a portmanteau word from “akor” and “IoT“. “Akor” is the ancient Celtic word for “open”. The goal of the akorIoT SensPRO was to create an open platform similar to the idea of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). As with a PLC the programmability, storage of the program in memory and the execution of […]

BG95 / BG77 antenna selection and antenna matching

LPWA frequencies in comparison

In order to save development and approval costs, the antenna, frequency bands, ground plane size and housing should be carefully designed at the beginning of development. If the company lacks in-house experience with radio, antennas and worldwide approval, we recommend consulting an external consultant. The following text is intended to make you think. I use […]

The oldest delivery service in the world now obtains NB-IoT

The oldest delivery service in the world now obtains NB-IoT

The oldest delivery service is certainly Santa Claus. He has been delivering punctually to children for generations. Santa Claus lives in his factory at the North Pole. Santa’s helpers are the gnomes. They make gifts for the children. At Christmas Santa Claus packs all the presents on his sled. As we now, reindeers pull the […]

All in one wireless module =>NB-IoT (LTE-Cat-NB1), LTE-Cat-M1, GPRS and GNSS (GPS, Glonass)

NB-Iot, LTE-Cat-M1, GPRS, GNSS module on radio adapter with Arduino header

A dream came true. Within the last days, NB-IoT is moving in big steps. Orders for a new combined module on NB-IoT (LTE-Catt-NB1), LTE-Cat-M1, GPRS and GNSS (GPS, GLONASS) are welcome. If you miss NB-IoT or Cat-M1 for now, then just use the GPRS radio inside the module. Requests for data sheets, orders for samples […]
