The product launch improves the sensor nodes Waspmote and Plug & Sense! and the IoT gateway Meshlium
Libelium has announced a new generation of Waspmote that it claims to be the most comprehensive IoT platform in the market with worldwide certifications.
Libelium Waspmote and Plug & Sense! families increase monitoring capabilities to 120 sensors to cover hundreds of IoT applications such as smart water, smart environment, smart cities, smart agriculture, and smart parking amongst many others. Some of the existing air and water sensors have been upgraded for better precision on particles measurement (ppm’s).
The new version includes also actuators to control DC units such as irrigation valves, thermostats, illumination systems, motors, PLC’s, etc.
New energy saving modes extend the lifetime of nodes from five to ten years.
In a very fragmented IoT market, interoperability is key to ensure Libelium technology will fit any project. The new version has updated and certified the following communication radios: LoRaWAN, Sigfox, WiFi, 4G, 802.15.4 / ZigBee, 868 / 900 RF.
In addition, the Plug & Sense! 4G US model is the first sensor making way for the big IoT cellular projects coming in the US market.
Security is another key feature of the new generation. The platform integrates five different security layers combining encryption for data privacy, authentication and message integrity – making it suitable for military use.
Meshlium - Libelium IoT gateway- core has migrated to a more powerful architecture and offers cloud connectivity off the shelf with 24 key players like Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Telefonica and Thingworx.
Both Plug & Sense! and Meshlium are the first IoT platforms to be fully certified with CE (Europe), FCC (US), IC (Canada), ANATEL (Brazil), RCM (Australia), PTCRB (US) and AT&T (US).
“Libelium has made a big effort getting the new products ready for the major IoT markets worldwide,” said David Gascón, Libelium’s CTO.
”After ten years, we keep our commitment to deliver continuous innovation for the IoT market making our products compliant with cutting-edge technologies while increasing its robustness and reliability,” he added.
