The Adroit IIoT platform is a customisable hardware and software platform that enables users to rapidly deploy and integrate cloud-based data for monitoring and control purposes. We have created the Adroit IIoT platform to make it easy for people to build their own monitoring and control applications. It consists of hardware that is used to acquire and transfer data to the Adroit I/O Server software in the cloud. The data can be visualised, alarmed and put into databases for real-time operations or reporting purposes.
Here at Adroit, we are integrating sensors onto our Adroit Enterprise IoT platform where the monitoring and detection of real-time data are made simple and effective with a variety of sensors and networks to meet the customer’s needs.
LTE-M (LTE-MTC [Machine Type Communication]), which includes eMTC (enhanced Machine Type Communication), is a type of low power wide area network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed by 3GPP to enable a wide range of cellular devices and services (specifically, for machine-to-machine and Internet of Things applications). Also see LTE Cat-M1.
Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed by 3GPP to enable a wide range of cellular devices and services. NB-IoT uses a subset of the LTE standard, but limits the bandwidth to a single narrow-band of 200kHz.
LoRa is a long-range radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and is combined with low power wireless chipset that is used in a lot of Internet of Things (IoT) networks and devices worldwide. LoRa uses license-free sub-gigahertz radio frequency bands like 433 MHz, 868 MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (North America). LoRa enables long-range transmissions (more than 10 km in rural areas) with low power consumption.
Sigfox employs the differential binary phase-shift keying (DBPSK) and the Gaussian frequency shift keying (GFSK) that enables communication using the Industrial, Scientific and Medical ISM radio band which uses 868MHz in Europe and 902MHz in the US. It utilizes a wide-reaching signal that passes freely through solid objects, called “Ultra Narrowband” and requires little energy, being termed “Low-power Wide-area network (LPWAN)”.
