Founding member of the LoRa™ Alliance, Sagemcom proposes an integrated end-to-end offer tailored for the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), based on the open standard LoRaWAN™. This offer covers the radio RF modules used to make the things connected, up to the entire infrastructure network allowing both the reception of data transmitted by the sensors (objects) (uplink direction), and control of these things by issuing commands from the network (downlink direction): base stations (BS), which can be supplemented by femto LoRa™, core network, or also software solutions for redistributing data to service operators.
With this complete offer, Sagemcom targets mainly the use cases, scenario requiring connected things with battery life of several years (between 10 and 20 years), punctually transmitting small amounts of data and to be connected at great distance, or within-deep indoor environment.
Sagemcom designs solutions for the management of the LoRaWAN™ infrastructure network, enabling both the collection of sensors’ data and the management and control of things.
Sagemcom provides efficient and innovative deployment solutions of radio network LoRaWAN™ through joint densification of base stations (BTS) and residential gateway (RGW) or Femtocells including radio modules LoRaWAN™.
Sagemcom develops radio modules and industrial connected objects ("end-points"), based on the IoT open standard LoraWAN™.
Why was LoRaWAN™ technology chosen?
Sagemcom selected LoRaWAN™ standard for the following of competitive advantages:
• It is bidirectional, allowing sensors to not only transmit information (uplink direction), but to receive it as well (downlink direction).
• It can offer, thanks to its combination of different types and categories of sensors (Classes A, B, C), many added value services to the industry.
• It natively allows passive geolocation of things, without requiring any embedded GPS into objects (too much energy-consuming).
• The network can adapt the Spreading Factor (SF) (resulting thus into throughput adaptation), then the radio transmit power, but also the packet retransmission depending on the local radio conditions of each end-point. Thus, the higher the density of network antennas, the higher capacity the network will experience.
• Optimizing bandwidth and power also helps minimizing energy consumption at the end-points: with such regulated power consumption, the objects experience a longer battery life.
• LoRaWAN ™ is an open standard, which interoperability is achieved in one hand thanks to a standardized certification process, conducted by independent renown laboratories, and in the other hand thanks to clear public open specifications, backward compatible, following a clear roadmap managed within a strong and diverse industrial alliance, which perpetuates deployments & investment, and ensures a constant high quality innovation over the long term.
