M2COMM brings game changing carrier grade IoT connectivity to market
16 December 2015
The Weightless SIG announces the availability of feature-rich Weightless-P technology tailored to deliver on the promises of premium ubiquitous wide area IoT connectivity.
These include: fully acknowledged 2-way wireless link, adaptive data rates up to 100kbps, scalable cellular-inspired network technology to deliver higher capacity than existing LPWAN technologies and on unique features.
Across all key parameters that define IoT connectivity Weightless-P delivers what the Weightless SIG claims is the best compromise for the widest range of IoT applications. Weightless-P offers low complexity, long battery life, high reliability, long range and robust security in an open standard technology.
“Weightless-P is revolutionary; it will transform the LPWAN space by providing the very first clean slate open standard designed from the ground up for both public and private IoT deployments,” says Derrick Wei, CEO of M2COMM. “From our experience in ultra-low-energy wireless networks, we are able to offer fully featured technology at a fraction of the complexity and energy consumption of cellular alternatives”.
“Weightless-P is a turning point in LPWAN technology - no longer does the IoT community need to compromise between performance and cost when making connectivity decisions” adding “Weightless-P is the definitive open standard for wide area IoT connectivity,” says Professor William Webb, CEO of the Weightless SIG.
Weightless-P is an open standard LPWAN technology operating in sub-GHz spectrum, with the option to work in licensed spectrum, using 12.5kHz narrowband technology to offer best in class performance.
