A Comprehensive Solution for IoT Integration in Challenging Environments

We’re thrilled to introduce the integration of WiTTRA devices with the Cumulocity IoT platform. This article highlights the unique aspects of our solution and the benefits it brings to your IoT integration.

WiTTRA stands at the forefront of IoT technology, specializing in precise positioning and sensitive data collection across challenging settings such as heavy industry, mining, tunnels, agriculture, and airports. By integrating various standard technologies into a unified system, our solution addresses a broad spectrum of applications.

At the heart of our offering is a versatile gateway, compatible with mesh networks (built on 6LoWPAN) and configurations like star, LoRaWAN, or NB-IoT. This gateway harmonizes data from multiple networks into a singular stream, expertly managing positioning and the collection of sensor data.

The WiTTRA “Chameleon” device epitomizes versatility in our mesh networking approach, acting as a mesh router, positioning beacon, or sensor tag. Equipped with essential environmental sensors, it establishes local coverage with positioning beacons that serve as anchor points. These beacons are battery-operated, ensuring reliable deployment even in locations lacking power.

Furthermore, the Chameleon device accommodates third-party sensors, supporting analog, digital, and pulse outputs. This adaptability permits our customers to configure both simple and intricate IoT setups using WiTTRA as the primary transport network for diverse devices.

We have refined the integration process with our device management platform, simplifying data visualization and analysis. With the WiTTRA starter kit, encompassing a gateway and several devices, users can swiftly configure their IoT ecosystem within a couple of hours.

The beginning is as simple as connecting your WiTTRA gateway to the cloud, with detailed instructions available at our documentation site. The process of creating a user for integration and defining roles is made easy, ensuring a smooth start.

After setting up, access the WiTTRA portal to finalize the integration, kickstarting your IoT exploration. Designed for efficiency, the entire setup aims for completion in less than a minute.

Our platform is versatile, supporting a wide array of applications across sectors like mining, healthcare, and aviation. For example, our system facilitates onsite tracking to prevent collisions and gathers data from external sensors, utilizing various network standards for seamless data collection and integration.

Proud of our system’s simplicity and efficiency, we combine robust hardware with smooth integration. This strategy not only speeds up deployment but also supports a vast range of IoT use cases, from improving field service management to incorporating third-party integrations.
