Welcome to the Nightingale HQ overview of long-range, low-power sensor networks services. Here we aim to introduce people to what they need to know.
Long-range, low-power sensor networks are a type of wireless technology. They are systems of connected sensors that work over a large area using little power. This means that they have the benefits of wide-area mobile networks at a lower cost. They do not allow for large data transfers, so are not used for human communications (voice, video, and other communications that transfer large volumes of data). However, their capacity to connect devices across wide distances makes them useful for Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and other machine-to-machine communications.
Long-range, low-power sensor networks help teams to develop smart products, both by allowing the products to connect to other IoT technologies and by gathering data to make better decisions. If your business makes use of monitoring devices, implementing long-range, low-power sensor networks will improve the efficiency and accuracy of the devices’ data collection and reduce downtime. Monitoring devices are used in agriculture, for example, to assess yield.You may need this service if:
KPIs you should consider measuring for this are:
Long-range, low-power sensor networks use narrow bandwidth transmissions to achieve long-range. They can be implemented at relatively low cost due to low-power (thanks to limited daily server communications) and use of unlicensed spectrum. The fact that the sensor networks are low-power also means that battery life can be ten years or more, saving resources.Long-range, low-power sensor networks help deliver:
