BehrTech, a disruptive enabler of next-gen wireless IoT connectivity, today announced the release of the first mioty and Bluetooth Low Energy Dual Stack. The mioty Bluetooth LE Dual-Stack brings together mioty, the newest low-power wide-area network technology, with the latest version of Bluetooth (BLE 5.2) on a single multi-protocol chip, the CC1352R wireless microcontroller from Texas Instruments.
Together, mioty and Bluetooth LE provide ultra-low power, short-range and long-range wireless capabilities that expand the possibilities of IoT in commercial and industrial environments. This dual-stack improves the scalability and robustness of existing IoT applications and enables a myriad of new IoT Applications from asset tracking and indoor navigation to consumables monitoring and environmental monitoring. Mioty extends the power efficiency and high data rate capabilities of Bluetooth LE devices by serving as a reliable and robust backhaul for long-range communication in both complex indoor environments and widespread remote locations.
“The mioty Bluetooth LE Dual-Stack mitigates the physical restrictions that previously existed for IoT implementations and makes it possible for these low-power, short-range device networks to go nearly anywhere without the need for a costly and complex infrastructure,” says Wolfgang Thieme, CTO at BehrTech. “This combination of technologies will make it more feasible for massive-scale sensor networks to exist and opens up a new world of exciting industrial and commercial applications.”
The advanced chipset architecture from Texas Instruments, together with the new mioty Bluetooth LE Dual Stack, enables the use of the license free 2.4GHz spectrum and sub-GHz spectrum concurrently. Combining mioty and Bluetooth creates a new level of interoperability between ecosystems from wireless technology vendors to sensor manufacturers and system developers. This single chip solution is tailor-made for maximum integration, smaller devices and reduced costs, allowing users to take advantage of the license free spectrum across frequencies and protocols for full flexibility of IoT deployments.
Combining the complementary strengths of two different wireless standards and frequencies in one design opens up new opportunities in terms of Applications and geographies. Mioty and Bluetooth LE, together, allow the deployment of IoT networks in a significantly broader geographic area. This flexibility is increasingly important as more IoT sensor networks are deployed in far flung, industrial locations like remote mining, oil and gas and manufacturing facilities. The mioty Bluetooth LE Dual Stack also cost-effectively enables critical indoor applications that require reliable connectivity for a vast number of end-nodes. Mioty’s long-range, deep indoor penetration and high interference immunity overcome the challenges of physical barriers and obstructions, as well as co-channel interference that is often present in indoor environments, to ensure reliable data communications in any large industrial campus or smart building.
BehrTech offers the new mioty Bluetooth LE Dual Stack as a free evaluation version for the TI LPSTK-CC1352R. A “mioty only” subGHz stack is also available for the same platform.
BehrTech offers a disruptive wireless connectivity software platform that is purpose-built for massive-scale IoT networks. At the core of the platform is mioty, a new communication technology standardized by ETSI, that provides reliable, robust, and scalable connectivity unlike any other technology on the market. With its approach to interoperability, BehrTech makes it easy for end users to retrofit its MYTHINGS platform in any environment and enables partners, system integrators, and VARs to deliver fully integrated IoT solutions for data-driven decision making. www.behrtech.com
