Wireless technology can solve a wide range of remote connectivity challenges, providing a reliable, fast and cost-effective method of linking outlying buildings and infrastructure back to the core network. If you can see the thing you’re trying to link to, but it’s impossible or cost-prohibitive to run cable to it, then wireless may well offer a solution.
Wireless backhaul is extremely versatile can be used in a number of applications, including CCTV, outdoor WiFi, rural broadband and transportation to name but a few. From a simple point-to-point bridge to a large outdoor mesh the possibilities really are endless.
How Low Data-Rate Wireless is revolutionising data capture
Here are three widely-used low data-rate wireless technologies:
- Lorawan (Long range wide area network) is a low power, wide area network technology that enables long-range communication between devices. It operates in the unlicensed spectrum and provides secure, bi-directional communication with end-to-end encryption. Lorawan is ideal for applications such as smart cities, environmental monitoring, and industrial IoT.
- Bluetooth low energy (BLE) is a variant of Bluetooth that consumes less power and is commonly used in IoT devices. BLE devices can operate for months or even years on a single coin cell battery, so it’s ideal for applications such as monitoring and wearable devices. BLE also supports a wide range of applications, including indoor positioning, asset tracking, and proximity detection.
- Cat-1M is a low data-rate wireless technology that operates on cellular networks. It provides low power consumption and enables long-range communication up to several kilometers. Cat-1M is ideal for applications such as smart metering and GPS-based asset tracking.
Wireless technologies have been applied in various industries. There is a wide range of devices available, including those for measuring temperature, humidity, power consumption, vibration, shock, acceleration, occupancy, and more.
