FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2nd May 2018
Due to the increasing demand for low-energy, long-range and cost-efficient network connectivity, Libelium are now offering LoRaWAN and Sigfox wireless connectivity in the Australian Waspmote Plug & Sense! and Smart Parking sensor devices.
By utilising Sigfox RC4 radio and LoRaWAN AU915-928 radio, Libelium have added new coverage to its wireless sensor network. Both radios offer coverage in several countries, from Australia to Asia Pacific and South America.
“We are (sic) successfully offering these protocols in the European version since 2015 and in the American version since 2017 for environment, pollution, water quality and smart parking projects. We strongly believe that making them available in their Australian, Asia Pacific and LATAM version will speed up market adoption,” said David Gascón, Libelium’s CTO.
Customers can choose their preferred LPWAN protocol for the Waspmote Plug & Sense! in different bands, depending on their geographic location. The exception being the Smart Parking device, on which both LoRaWAN and Sigfox may be included.
This unique system feature allows operators to utilise both radio technologies at the same time, or to switch from one to the other easily in the Cloud.
“We have managed to offer a dual radio in our Smart Parking node at a very competitive price, which increases our customers’ options, one of our design principles”, explains Gascón.
With this update, the Libelium IoT Sensor Platform is now Sigfox-connectivity ready with RC4 radio in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia, while the release of LoRaWAN AU915-928 radio, (for Australia), adds it to its existing radio portfolio (EU 863-870 and US902-928). Following this release, the Libelium IoT Sensor Platform is now LoRaWAN-connectivity ready across Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia.
