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 / 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.
Transfers large amounts of data,
Roaming capability (international deployment of connected objects),
Remote SIM card monitoring,
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
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.
Used for high-speed internet access,
Most infrastructures already have a wifi network,
Short range network,
High coverage and capacity
Equipment for connectivity
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.
