Technology Evolution

The Wittra IoT solution is based on open standards and protocols from IETF and IEEE and standard networks and components which provide partners and the customers with a scalable and reliable solution based on Internet technology.  

The solution is running in a large scaled Low-power Wireless Networks based on 6LoWPAN, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) over IEEE 802.15.4g in the Sub-1 GHz low-power RF band (868MHz for Europe). 6LoWPAN radically changes the IoT landscape, to enable transmission of IPv6 datagrams over IEEE 802.15.4 radio links.

Wittra is utilizing specific ISM frequencies together with patented positioning techniques, Wittra can track and monitor assets with large coverage, penetration of tough building materials and high accuracy.

The low power radio chips have been developed to support long-range sub-GHz narrow band communication, time of flight (ToF) and angle of arrival (AoA) distance measurements, context awareness and location accuracy. All optimized in a solution for you to deploy and start using.

Standards

There is likely to exist general, standardized networks in e.g. trucks, storage facilities, factories, etc, to support different types of sensors and new cellular network will come such as 5G.

It is our belief that these networks will be based on open standards, so as to be useful not only for the sensors that comes with e.g. a truck or car when you buy it, but also for after market and 3rd party devices that may require network access. This means that in some future, the communication part of our offering may be supported by already deployed data networks and need to fit into these networks. Wittra’s belief is that such standards for short-range radio access technology will be based on the internet IP protocol, IPv6 and thus protocol e.g. 6LoWPAN.

The 6LoWPAN standard employs the IPv6 protocol and can operate equally well over wireless and wired connections. There are many things to gain for a customer and from a network and technology perspectives being able to handle as many different applications as possible without having to deploy separate networks and other specifics for these applications. All this, with support from the industry, in integration and interoperability between different network technologies will make the combination possible, of a long-range but often cost-intensive protocol, 5G or others with a short-range radio access technology, 802.15.4 and provider-less protocol 6LoWPAN. The cellular network may be used to bridge connectivity to the device or vice versa by means of combining long-range and short range networks and protocols. Wireless connectivity beyond the local, short-range area is then provided via a gateway nodes.
