Connecting devices safely

Lora, Sigfox , 3G, 4G, LTE-M,… we support you in the implementation of your connected devices project with the connectivity of your choice and simplify its management thanks to a dedicated platform.

The best connectivity for your IoT project

The connectivity of your IoT installations is a step that should not be neglected if you want your IoT project to succeed. A misjudgment in the choice of the IoT network can impact the final service you offer to your customers. With its expertise in network connectivity, Synox helps you choose the best connectivity to meet the needs of your LPWA, cellular, satellite and Wi-Fi applications.

Network heterogeneity: definition and specificities

The path of data in the IoT takes place in several stages. It is first collected by means of sensors that transmit it to an antenna. This antenna serves as a relay and conducts the data to a data warehouse in the cloud for storage. Once analysed and interpreted, the data is smartly rendered and made available on dedicated data visualization interfaces.

It is important to know that networks can be of short range or distance (from a few centimeters to a few meters), or of long range or distance (from ten meters to several kilometers).

The main networks

Regarding the data return mechanism, there are a multitude of networks on which to rely. The main networks are as follows: Local Area Network (LAN), Personal Area Network (PAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), Satellite, Cellular.

The 6 main networks to connect your devices

  • LAN (Local Area Network): RFID, BLE or Zigbee, these are short-range networks (between 1 m and 100 m) with low energy consumption. This can be akin to the private internet network of your home or company ;
  • PAN (Personal Area Network): these are short-range networks of up to a few metres (BLUETOOTH) ;
  • WANs (Wide Area Networks): these networks provide a slightly greater range of up to several dozen meters;
  • LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network): the best known, LoRa and Sigfox, are networks and technologies that have been designed specifically to carry IoT data: long range and low energy consumption, they are also interesting in terms of cost ;
  • Satellite networks: they are available everywhere in the world (GPS) ;
  • Cellular networks: GSM, 2G, 3G or 4G, these are long-range networks that can carry large volumes of data and offer good coverage. The downside is that they consume energy.

Choose the right network for your needs

The choice of the network will depend on the uses:

  • For example, for a networked printer in the office, use LAN ;
  • For a connected bulb, the PAN network should be used ;
  • A little more complex, to connect the parking spaces of a shopping center, the LPWAN network is preferred ;
  • Finally, for the transport of goods in containers by sea, the choice of network is satellite.

Don’t forget to secure data flows with the Private APN

The private APN allows you to communicate with the transmitters/SIM without using the internet. This way, connections are controlled and security is reinforced.

The LoRaWAN™ technology: connect your devices in LoRa or Sigfox

The definition of LoRaWAN is “Long Range Wide – Area Network”. It is also called LoRa technology which means “Long Range”.

Synox, a member of the LoRa Alliance, brings you a low-cost, easy-to-deploy infrastructure based on LoRaWAN™ technology.

5 good reasons to choose LoRaWAN™ technology?

The LoRaWAN™ standard, based on LoRa™ technology, has many advantages in order to efficiently connect a wide variety of devices requiring high autonomy and low volume of reported information.

It is bidirectional, which allows the sensors to transmit information but also to receive it.

It allows to geolocate devices, without the need for GPS embedded in the devices.

The optimization of energy consumption allows devices to have a greater autonomy, because it is a low energy network.

Connect your IoT devices

LoRaWAN™ is an open standard that enables interoperability between heterogeneous sensors and systems.

It is particularly suitable for smart cities wishing to deploy their own private infrastructure or for industrial sectors.

Cellular technology: connecting devices with M2M SIM cards

Synox will help you choose your M2M (machine to machine) SIM card by offering you two choices.

M2M SIM CARD SINGLE OPERATOR

They connect to a single operator defined during their configuration. In the event of a network problem, the cards can be disconnected until the network is functional again. Synox relies on its network of partner operators to offer you a range of M2M packages tailored to your business.

M2M SIM CARD MULTI-OPERATOR

These SIM cards have the ability to connect to different local operators and technologies (3G, 4G, LTE-M and soon 5G) without human interaction. They offer the advantage of being able to automatically find at least one available communication network wherever the connected device is located.
