IDESIO’s solution is based on (multi-radio) configurable gateways that collect data via radio from distances of up to 10 Km. Gateways are designed by IDESIO as a result of a decade of experience of its team members both within European research and industrial projects. IDESIO uses radio technologies such as Zigbee, 4G, LoRa and NB-IOT. We identify and make a suitable choice of technology for each application and user need.
The choice of radio interfaces depends on the specific application, the reference distances between the gateway and ground segment nodes as well as the amount and the type of data that need to be collected.
IDESIO’s system is highly flexible and customisable.
Lora technology allows the transmission of data at a few tens of kbit / s up to distances of about 10 km using ISM (license-free) band at 868 MHz. It ‘a recently introduced proprietary radio system used in the field of Smart City applications, with low realization cost and high reliability. Optimal for all applications in which the area to be monitored is very vast.
NB-IOT is a 4G technology offered by MNOs (Mobile Network Operators). It allows the transmission of data at about 1 Mbit/s up to distances of about 10 km using licensed spectrum. Optimal for all applications in which energy efficiency is not the primary requirement.
