Equipment and environments like trucks, storage facilities, and factories are likely to use standardized networks that can support different types of sensors and the new cellular networks that will come (5G etc).
We believe these networks will be based on open standards that make them useful not only for the sensors but also for after-market and third party devices that require network access. In the future, the communication part of our solution will most likely be supported by already deployed data networks. Wittra’s belief is that these standards will be based on the internet IPv6 protocol that 6LoWPAN is based on.
6LoWPAN operates equally well over both wireless and wired connections. This makes things much easier for the customer when lots of different applications don’t have to use separate networks.
