This category includes devices, which have been enabled with the mioty technology such as smart meters, process transmitters or bridges. Besides the mioty stack, end-points are equipped with sensors, actuators and communication components such as radio frequency (RF)-chips, transceiver and system-on-chip (SoC)-solutions, or RF-modules. In addition end-points also have a power source such as a battery/mains energy or a energy harvesting transducer.
How do I integrate mioty in my end-points?
There are 3 ways to get connected with mioty easily:
1. Retrofit any product
Products such as process transmitters operating in ATEX-zones can be quickly transformed in a wireless product by using our mioty enabled bridges. Easily connect the bridges with your existing devices and send your data wirelessly, robust, long-range and power efficient to our base stations.
2. Upgrade any wireless device
You have already wireless devices equipped with LPWAN-Technologies such as LoRA, Sigfox or with medium range Technologies such as Thread or Zigbee? That’s great! Just choose your desired mioty module from our members and start at once to transfer data via mioty. You can either chose between “mioty only”-software stacks or “multi-standard”-software stacks
3. Design your own mioty product
Mioty is a hardware agnostic technology. On behalf of the end-point it is completely based on software. It can be integrated in any object – stationary installed or mobile. Choose either your desired hardware platform/system-on-chip solution or select the mioty module most suitable for your needs. You decide whether you choose a serial interface and a defined AT-Command set or if you integrate the application software interface to a sensor/actor.
The air interface “mioty radio protocol” defines the radio communication protocol between end-points and base station. It is based on TS-UNB family of the ETSI specification TS 103357.
The base station is the network device communicating with the end-point via mioty air interface. It connects to the mioty service center via the base station service center interface (BSSCI).
The service center is managing a mioty network consisting of base stations. It is responsible for routing the data between end-point applications and the application center via the service center application center Interface (SCACI). In a network with multiple base stations the Service Center is responsible for data aggregation and deduplication.
The application center interfaces applications to the mioty network via various available interface protocols (such as MQTT, Rest, COAP). It might connect, configure and manage thousands of end-points. In addition the application center handles the application layer security and allows strict separation of cryptographic keys between the network and application domain.
The IoT platform typically consists of a database and tools for visualization and analyzing the application data. It can be easily integrated into standard cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud or IBM Watson.
