What features should a good IoT platform have?
IoT platforms are crucial components of an IoT system, enabling the deployment and management of IoT devices and applications. The Internet of Things (IoT) has transformed the way businesses and individuals interact with technology. IoT platforms are designed to help users connect, manage, and control their IoT devices and data streams, providing a centralized hub for all their
Benefits of using IoT platforms
The internet of things (IoT) is growing at an unprecedented rate, with more and more businesses connecting devices every day in large numbers. This offers huge potential for organizations in terms of Business Intelligence, AI, ML , Analytics etc, but it also comes with new challenges in terms of managing these devices. IoT platforms is
LoRaWAN Technology & Our Experience
The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect ‘things’ to the Internet and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility, and localization services. It wirelessly connects devices to the internet and manages communication between end-node devices and network gateways. An
Smart Poultry Farming with LoRaWAN
The advancement in technology has entered into the world of farming and poultry. A smart poultry farm consists of three major components: poultry house, poultry feeder, and smart feeder. The feeder will be able to dispense the required amount of feed at the desired time to the poultry birds, and it is also capable of
Dragino LPS8 LoRaWAN gateway
One popular LoRaWAN gateway we have used is the Dragino LPS8 LoRaWAN gateway. LoRaWAN gateway has the primary purpose of bridging between LoRa and the internet. LPS8 supports both Wi-Fi and ethernet. The data from LoRa end nodes can be picked up by the gateway antenna and with the help of the concentrator and packet
Blockchain meets LoRaWAN – Helium Ecosystem
The Helium Network is a decentralised wireless network using the LoRaWAN system, powered by Helium Blockchain. By deploying a hotspot in your home or office, you can provide your city with miles of low-power network coverage and earn a new cryptocurrency, HNT(Helium Network Token) . It has become the fastest growing network with more than
LoRaWAN in Aquaponics
Aquaponics is a combination of Aquaculture, which is farming of fish and other aquatic animals, and Hydroponics which is growing plants without soil. Aquaponics is a synergy between plants and aquatic ecosystem. It uses these two in a symbiotic combination such that plants are fed the aquatic animals’ discharge or waste. How does it work?
LoRaWAN Technology based Trackers
LoRaWAN is a popular technology for trackers due to its low power consumption and long-range capabilities. Trackers are used in multiple applications like: Pet tracking Fleet tracking People tracking Shipment tracking and more. They are also available in multiple form-factors ideal for different use-cases. We have implemented different types of trackers as detailed below: 1.
LoRaWAN: A Promising Technology for IoT
LoRa (short for long range) is a spread spectrum modulation technique derived from chirp spread spectrum (CSS) technology. This wireless technology is characterised by low power and long range allowing users to deploy into remote areas with low maintenance. Since its long range, there is no need of installing gateways back to back – one
Serverless architecture is a software design pattern that allows developers to build and run services without having to manage the underlying infrastructure. The developers can write and deploy code, while a cloud provider provisions servers to run their applications, databases, and storage systems at any scale. Serverless environment provides the flexibility to pay-as-you-use. In this
