Wirepas and u-blox partner to create new IoT solutions

Wirepas and u-blox have partnered to offer an advanced decentralised radio communications solution (comparable with advanced mesh technology) for demanding industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications. With the IoT industry in its early years, deployment of industrial IoT applications can be slow and complex for the end customers, according to the companies. The goal of u-blox and Wirepas is to make large scale, decentralised industrial IoT networks easy to deploy for their customers.

The companies intend to utilise a small, stand-alone Bluetooth low energy module, NINA-B1, to achieve this. The module is targeting several different applications such as healthcare, connected buildings, manufacturing and telematics. According to u-blox, the use of the module in combination with the Wirepas Connectivity software enables short time to market for easy-to-install, large-scale, decentralised industrial IoT applications in segments such as lighting, sensor, asset-tracking and beacons.

“We believe that technology should never be the starting point; instead, we should concentrate on business and application needs. As needs evolve over time, so should the technology. Wirepas and u-blox share this core value and that is what makes us stronger together,” said Wirepas CEO, Teppo Hemiä.
