The Internet of Things (IoT, Internet of Things) refers to physical objects equipped with sensors and software to communicate wirelessly with other objects, such as devices or sensors, people and processes. This allows them to act autonomously and exchange information in real time with each other as M2M (machine-to-machine) and/or with a cloud.
Digital systems document, monitor and adapt every interaction between networked objects to achieve wireless automation and control with minimal human involvement.
The Internet of Things has since become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Already today, more than 10 billion IoT devices are interconnected.
Many industries and sectors can benefit from the use of IoT technologies - be it in manufacturing and utilities, healthcare, agriculture or transport and logistics. The data collected in this way is used to:
Nowadays, the networking of sensors with the cloud and other things is done in completely independent networks called LPWAN (low power wide area network). These networks enable efficient data transmission over very long distances with extremely low energy requirements.
For this there are. e.g. IoT networks from LoRaWan or Sigfox. It operates in the licence-free and free ISM band at 868 MHz - 868.6 MHz.
Due to the low frequency, the radio network is building-penetrating and has a large propagation, e.g. with Sigfox, ranges of up to 1.5km in urban areas and up to 5km out of town are possible with a small mini radio cell. An official Sigfox base station achieves a range of up to 10km in urban areas and up to 50km out of town (depending on the topology).
LoRaWan or Sigofx networks are already very well developed in Germany, Europe and worldwide and offer versatile possibilities for innovative IoT applications.
The LPWAN-technology offers an additional advantage compared to conventional mobile networks: the signal of the individual units can not be disturbed as they are not constantly logged into a network. As a result, they are not directly accessible from the internet and protected against hacking attacks.
Another plus point is that the devices do not have to be permanently online, which leads to an reduction of the energy demand and has an extremely positive effect on battery life.
