For a simple, reliable and cost-efficient operation of connected devices, the choice of the right communication technology plays an important role. In addition to data bandwidth and range, availability, reliability, security, energy requirements and infrastructure requirements should be considered.
Werktag knows the strengths and weaknesses of available communication technologies and can competently assist you in choosing and implementing the appropriate solution.
Security: The advantage of networked devices can be detrimental if the devices are hijacked and become a botnet.
Energy Efficiency: The radio module can make up a considerable part of the energy consumption of an connected device. With the optimization of the system architecture and a smart choice of the communication technology, the power consumption can be significantly reduced and thus enables long battery life.
LPWAN: Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) like LoRa or Sigfox are an interesting solution for implementing monitoring or tracking applications. Low energy consumption and long range help reduce installation, infrastructure and maintenance costs.
