Scalable IoT networking
Netzikon offers various service packages for industrial enterprises, power supply companies and municipal utilities to enable them to use LoRaWAN™ for their special applications.
LoRaWAN™ permits the support of future-proof and sustainable power supply concepts. Sensors are permanently collecting and recording data from thermal power stations, photovoltaic systems, wind turbines and biogas facilities. The operators evaluate the data reported and can thus optimize their processes and reduce costs. In addition, the sensors can supply information indicating that a system or station requires maintenance ("predictive maintenance").
Energy providers are obliged to ensure a defined voltage quality in their networks. Sensors installed in the local network stations measure the quality provided and send the data detected in real-time via radio to the monitoring systems in the control center. Whenever the measurements deviate from the stipulated values, the network operators must take appropriate remedial measures.
The LoRaWAN™ technology replaces old and expensive infrastructures based on radio ripple control systems. The new technology permits the implementation of value-added services for a sustainable power supply management, e.g. control of night storage or photovoltaic systems and control of the lighting infrastructure.
LoRaWAN™ is especially interesting for reading consumption values of tenant or district current which is in many cases offered to tenants of apartments or commercial premises. Power generation takes place in the geographical proximity of the rented property, so that the current does not have to be transmitted via the public networks. Such local power supply facilities are normally operated by residential building companies or their cooperation partners. However, potential operators are also municipal utilities, power supply companies or energy associations.
Even in case of hardly accessible objects, the sensors can communicate via the network as LoRaWAN™ signals can penetrate through buildings. Thus, these signals are available even in underground locations, i.e. electricity, gas or water meters mounted in such locations can still reliably be read.
