Connectivity : the key to a successful IoT project
For the sensor to communicate data to a platform, you need to find the right connectivity for your project. We answer several questions before choosing the connectivity:
- What kind of data is to be transmitted (data, voice…)?
- How often should the data be uploaded (every hour, minute, second…)?
- Is the object battery operated or does it need to be powered?
- Will the object move or remain fixed?
- Where will the object be placed (difficult place, buried…) ?
Depending on the answers, we use 3 main technologies to connect an object to the internet:
3G and 4G
Thanks to wireless cellular networks, we can connect the sensors anywhere and anytime. We mainly use multi-operator SIM cards that connect to the best network at time T. The sensors will have automatic access to the various operators’ networks (Bouygues Télécom, Orange, SFR…). This allows you to maximize the connectivity of your sensors and to collect your data in real time.
Transfers large amounts of data,
Roaming capacity (deployment of internationally connected objects),
Remote SIM card monitoring,
Low consumption and bidirectional,
Long distance (between 2 and 5 km in urban areas / up to 10 km in rural areas),
Ideal for an periodic emission.
Thanks to – wifi network operator of the NomoTech Group – we can offer a unique wifi access service. NomoSphère takes care of installing the Wifi terminals in concerned places (cities, train stations, hospitals…). The Wifi networks allow to connect the sensors permanently, and to send the data on our restitution platform.
Used for very high speed internet access,
Most infrastructures already have a wifi network,
High coverage and capacity.
Each connectivity technology has its own advantages and disadvantages. So, we take into account 6 criteria to provide you with a tailor-made service: cost, range, capacity, reliability, consumption and sensor lifetime. To have the best connectivity, we work closely with qualified partners in their field of activity.
