WiTTRA announce the launch of their ‘MIoTy portal’, which supports WiTTRA’s Unified Gateway delivering open standards and hybrid network topology through a single technology deployment. The combination of WiTTRA’s 6LoWPAN mesh network with MIoTy LPWAN (low power wide area network) radios provides a high volume of on-site sensor and 3D location data, along with long-range connectivity options for wide area network coverage needed for mass IoT deployments. Each technology implements various spectrum spreading processes to ensure reliable data delivery even in the presence of radio interference.
Smart home technology is here and is increasing penetration into consumer’s homes day-by-day but, as with any technology, standards and protocols matter.
For the past 15 years or so, technology companies have sought to develop software solutions that enable the use of Internet protocol (IP) for wireless sensor networks and other connected devices that leverage Internet connectivity. As a result several means of connectivity and networking have emerged that are making their way into smart home solutions including ZigBee and 6LoWPAN.
