Communication

Wireless industrial communication – your route to the (wireless) Internet of Things

The IoT calls for increasing networking between machines, both in the form of local as well as global networks. To facilitate widespread communication between smart systems, we provide solutions for all key wireless technologies and radio topologies with our Industrial IoT Gateway series emIOT.

We support you with tangible solution architectures for networking your application for the business models of the future, specifically adapted to suit your application.

WIRELESS EXPERTISE FOR YOU

Wireless/near-field technologies
Not only does wireless technology play a crucial role in our everyday lives, both at work and in our free time, it is also seeing increasing use in industrial environments. Alongside secure communication, the IIoT also calls for a user-friendly user interface, for example via a wireless maintenance interface. In certain applications, people or devices need to be authenticated using RFID or NFC tags in order to prevent unauthorised manipulation. Other applications with promising futures include augmented reality applications for service and support scenarios for complex machines and systems. We provide the right standard for any scenario: 

  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • NFC/RFID
  • ZigBee

Radio/cellular technologies
Wireless technologies are essential for decentralised infrastructures in remote locations. Due to a variable or unreliable infrastructure at the endpoints, a broadband cable connection for the machine cannot be guaranteed. We provide a solution with a broadband connection via mobile networks for this scenario. Popular application scenarios of the mobile broadband connection are predictive maintenance and data monitoring of sensitive machine data. We recommend the right technology for you depending on the availability on site:

  • 2G 
  • 3G
  • LTE-4G 
  • LTE-5G

LPWAN – Low-Power Wide-Area Network
LPWAN technologies are among the innovations in (Industrial) IoT communications. LPWANs like LTE Narrowband IoT (LTE NB1), LTE Cat-M1, LoRa or Sigfox are used in cases where high availability and flexible scalability are essential. The efficiency of the low-power technologies enables the battery-powered modules to run independently for up to 10 years. Compared to the GSM standard, LPWAN has far higher penetration (typically +20 dB). One example of a deployment scenario is the use of modems in underground car parks. Thanks to the efficiency of the modules, the development and operating costs are very low, making cost-effective networking of individual devices up to mass networking of sensors and actuators possible.

  • LTE NB-IoT
  • LTE CAT-M1
  • LoRa
  • Sigfox
