The Internet of Things, or IoT is it’s often abbreviated is a huge source of interest for CTI, and is an industry we’ve explored both for in-house projects and for clients.
What crucially defines a solution as IoT is the ability for a device to communicate back to the internet. Specifically for CTI, we’re interested in the distinction between mesh solutions, powered by Bluetooth Mesh and Thread (operating at 2.4Ghz ISM bands) and the more traditional point-point communication of Narrow-Band IoT, specifically LoRaWAN.
CTI’s created innovated projects using all three of these communication links and are keen to explore more.
- Smart Street-lighting with Bluetooth Mesh
- Energy and Water metering using the Thread mesh stack
- Remote Deer Trapping and Conservation with LoRaWAN
