Connectivity

Connectivity is 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 types of data should be uploaded (data, voice, etc.) ?
  • How often should the data be retrieved (every hour, minute, second, etc.)?
  • Does the object run on batteries or does it need to be powered?
  • Will the object move or remain stationary?
  • Where will the object be placed (difficult place, buried…)?

According to the answers, we use 3 main technologies to connect an object to the internet:

3G 4G

3G / 4G / 5G

Thanks to wireless cellular networks, we can connect sensors anywhere and anytime. We mainly use multi-operator SIM cards that connect to the best network at any given time. The sensors will therefore automatically have access to the various operator networks (Bouygues Telecom, Orange, SFR, etc.). This allows you to maximize the connectivity of your sensors and to collect your data in real time.

carte sim réseau cellulaire

Transfers large amounts of data,
Roaming capability (international deployment of connected objects),
Remote SIM card monitoring,
Permanent connectivity

réseau LoRa

LoRa

The LoRaWAN protocol is an open protocol that allows objects to exchange data at low data rates.  We use the LoRaWAN operated network for its long-range connectivity and low power consumption. We also use and ThingPark platform to allow customers to create their own LoRa network.

Gateway LoRa indoor

Low power consumption and bi-directional,
Long distance (2-5 km in urban areas / up to 10 km in rural areas),
Ideal for periodically transmitting sensors

wifi

WiFi

Thanks to NomoSphere – the NomoTech Group’s wifi network operator – we can offer a unique wifi access service. NomoSphère installs WiFi terminals in relevant locations (cities, train stations, hospitals, etc.).  Wifi networks allow sensors to be permanently connected and data to be sent to our reporting platform.

Each connectivity technology has its own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, we consider 6 criteria to provide you with a tailor-made service: cost, range, capacity, reliability, power consumption and sensor lifetime. To get the best connectivity, we work closely with partners who are qualified in their field.
