Considering the local situation, Flashnet’s engineers proposed a mix of LoRaWAN™ / GSM implementation, using 1NCE connectivity. 1NCE enables IoT applications and services to access GSM connectivity for ten years on a buy-once flat fee.
The inteliLIGHT LoRaWAN™ compatible IoT communication infrastructure was chosen due to its capability to reliably connect sensors and actuators over long distances, using low-bitrate public radio frequencies. With its unique penetration capability, a LoRaWAN™ gateway deployed on a building or tower can connect thousands of devices over distances up to 15 kilometers. The technology also offers unique benefits in terms of bi-directionality, security, mobility and accurate localization. The very fast deployment, the possibility to choose between a private or public network architecture and the low operation costs encouraged the adoption of this solution.
