Are you looking for the latest and smartest IoT solution? Then you have come to the right place. Wittra has for a long time been the leader in developing the latest tech in the world of Internet of Things.
A MARKET DRIVEN IOT SOLUTION
More and more industry players have begun to realize the importance of the Internet of Things (IoT). But it can be difficult to understand what the IoT really is. Today there are several network solutions for IoT: wireless local area network (WLAN) with core technologies Wi-Fi and VLE, low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN) providers such as Sigfox and Lora, and cellular networks with 4G GSM, and 5G technology. At the same time, however, different users often have different network requirements. Therefore, it is necessary to find different solutions for the various applications available.
Even though IoT technology exists, it has not yet rolled out on a large scale. Håkan Dackefjord, founder of Swedish company Wittra, currently developing tracking technology for the IoT, says that one of the reasons for this is the high cost of building IoT infrastructure.
“Nevertheless, the technology is gaining momentum,” he explains. “Due to a fast development pace and standardization, the price of hardware will go down and companies will compete through software and services. This is where we will find the true value of IoT.”
WITTRA'S UNIQUE IOT SOLUTION
The most common similarity between movable objects is that they tend to be in different environments, whether indoors or outdoors, in the city or in the country. And while people can connect their devices to existing network solutions, either indoors or outdoors, these solutions can be less than optimal due to poor positioning accuracy and infrastructure. For example, GPS can work reliably outdoors. However, it requires a stable connection between device and satellite for pinpoint accuracy. Therefore, it is an unfavorable option for indoor tracking and positioning. As such, communication to wireless sensor nodes both indoors and outdoors is a problem that remains unsolved. But not at Wittra.
“If you look years into the future, it’s possible to think that wireless networks will continue to be developed and deployed and that most of these networks will be based on open standards. Already today we can see standardized networks in trucks, warehouses, and factories for example,” says Dackefjord. “We are convinced that future standards will be based on internet protocols such as 6LoWPAN. Standardization means that networks can be available to third-party suppliers. This is the reason why Wittra is, as much as possible, using open standards and components that give both us and the client a scalable, reliable, and future-proof solution.”
Thanks to this brilliant IoT solution, Wittra’s customers can create products for the user that are built on a well-defined third-party interface or API, based on standard protocols. In this way, Wittra’s technology will fit into future IoT infrastructure, together with clients’ existing solutions and equipment.
KEEPING TRACK OF MOVEABLE OBJECTS
Wittra’s solution is one that keeps track of movable objects with an initiated service for wireless sensor nodes at its core. This unique technology includes proximity, geo-fencing, positioning, and distance measurement. All of this combined with the ability to request and receive sensor data such as movement, fall detection, and temperature. Wittra’s solution also supports the requesting and receiving of sensor data. Data such as communicating both upstream and downstream with IoT units, which involves the sending of actual data. Ultimately, the units can perform an action or operation upon request, return data to a central server, or send commands back to units when changing parameters and functions, for example.
Wittra’s technology primarily targets B2B companies in need of tracking assets, industry surveillance, warehouse tracking, and logistics. Additionally, we're also receiving requests from the maritime, factory, and service industries.
Wittra’s competitive advantage is based on a new way of distributing and creating IoT products based on internet architecture. By using standardized and proprietary key technologies, Wittra can keep costs down. At the same time, we support value-added applications such as the requesting and receiving of sensor data for machine learning. Moreover, Wittra’s technology can provide long-range capabilities and extended battery life as well. Thanks to Wittra’s technology, companies will now be able to create their own products and services. This will make the future of IoT a bright one indeed.
