A journey from an 5G IoT standard to productization - Wirepas

5G Mesh IoT - from standard to productization

The journey from an idea to a standard is a long one. It always starts with an idea and some problem solvers. We've got them! We had defined the problem and rolled up our sleeves. Even though our employees are very very experienced, no standard comes from one place. We've been involved in different standardization groups too. Now we are extremely close to getting this all out to the world as a product, not just an idea. Here are some news and blog posts along the way.

The new global IoT standard outperforms the cellular based IoT alternatives

This global IoT connectivity standard DECT-2020 New Radio outperforms existing cellular LPWAN solutions LTE-M and NB-IoT, says a study published by Tampere University in Finland. The standard, designed for massive and dense deployments, has ten times lower latency, and requires significantly less power than the cellular alternatives. While not in the scope of this study, the specifications of the standard also promise higher bandwidth and lower cost along with the inherently high reliability of the mesh topology, making DECT-2020 NR an attractive option for industries.
