Weightless redefining LPWAN performance

The Weightless SIG has announced availability of Weightless-P technology, promising to deliver premium ubiquitous wide area IoT connectivity: fully acknowledged 2-way wireless link, adaptive data rates up to 100kbps, scalable cellular-inspired network technology to deliver higher capacity than existing LPWAN technologies and on unique features.

Across all key parameters that define IoT connectivity, Weightless-P delivers the best compromise for the widest range of IoT applications. It offers low complexity, long battery life, reliability, long range and robust security in an open standard technology.

Derrick Wei, CEO of M2COMM: “Weightless-P is revolutionary; it will transform the LPWAN space by providing the very first clean slate open standard designed from the ground up for both public and private IoT deployments”. Wei added “From our experience in ultra-low-energy wireless networks, we are able to offer fully featured technology at a fraction of the complexity and energy consumption of cellular alternatives”.

Professor William Webb, CEO of the Weightless SIG, commented “Weightless-P is a turning point in LPWAN technology - no longer does the IoT community need to compromise between performance and cost when making connectivity decisions” adding “Weightless-P is the definitive open standard for wide area IoT connectivity”.

Weightless-P is an open standard LPWAN technology operating in sub-GHz spectrum, with the option to work in licensed spectrum, using 12.5kHz narrowband technology to offer best in class performance.

Stray field immunity is essential to magnetic sensing in modern automotive applications
A combination of environmental awareness and consumer demand is driving the automotive industry to produce ever-more efficient vehicles. Whether this is the highly-publicized Electric Vehicles (EV) / Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) or simply updates to the existing internal combustion engine (ICE) based vehicles, modern vehicles are bristling with technology – and this is only set to grow in the future.
