Internet of Things – IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new trend in communication of objects and devices among one another as well as with a human being made possible by the internet and wireless data transfer, thus allowing for better control of their management. It does not matter if we deal with “smart wiring” or heating of a family house or more sophisticated approaches in energetics, traffic, health care or even meteorology. The principle is still the same: the device contains sensors, is connected to infrastructure, via which the data are able to reach the app and we can control and manipulate them at will whenever needed.
If we as users ponder the possibilites of using the IoT effectively, we are left with two of them. Either we choose the key-supply of a net-server including the installation into a corporate environment, the placement of gateways and sensors, while the whole ecosystem becomes the property of the customer. Another possibility would be a model where the net-server is operated in cloud and the customer just connects the purchased gateways.
AsixWAN – Autonomous network of the Internet of Things
The AsixWAN product is a complex solution of an independent ecosystem IoT (Internet of Things), which meets all the necessary criteria of the LoRaWAN standard. It is based on the star topology of gateways which are connected via a central unit. It covers four significant areas: sensors, infrastructure, applications and safety.
The name LoRa describes the long range transfer of information. Large distances can be overcome using a modulation with a dispersed spectrum, which can be used with a comparatively small transfer speed. During the demodulation, a signal can be detected, which lies approximately 20dB lower than the signal noise. The distance range of LoRa depends on the transfer speed as well. In general – the faster the transfer, the shorter the distance.

How does the product work?
The end units (sensors) communicate with the gateways using radio channels in the free range of and use the special modulation technique LoRa (Long Range), which enables a transfer of a small amount of data over large distances (of the order of 10 kilometres). The connection between the gateways and the Central Unit (the Network Server) is realised via the IP protocol.
The data encryption is beyond the range of the LoRaWAN standard, which means that their contents remains confidential, even when the data are acquired in an unauthorized manner. In case a data manipulation or data forgery occurs, the whole system initially validates the inputs and subsequently decides whether to ignore or further process them.
I am interested in AsixWAN. What possibilities do I have?
Before the definition of your own ideal business model and its subsequent implementation can occur, a phase of consulting precedes.
First and foremost, such consultation solves the problem of placing of the gateways (GW), defines the conditions which need to be met for the Network Serveru (NS) to be successful along with the needs of the customer which are then taken into consideration in the AS.
The NS key-supply includes the installation into the corporate environment, placing of the GW and sensors, while the whole eco-system becomes the property of the customer.
An advantage of this solution is its considerable safety in terms of transferred and saved data. The whole ASIXWAN system can be operated completely using the infrastructure of the customer, which prevents the data from leaving their own intranet environment. The customer then may choose from several types of the service agreement which safeguards a smooth and reliable operation of the ASIXWAN infrastructure.
Hiring the virtual Network Server
In this model, the NS is operated within the ASIXWAN cloud and the customer connects the purchased GW to the hired NS. The customers have a full integration and administration interface at their disposal, as was the case before, while in the case of the hired solution, the data are saved in the ASIXWAN cloud, which ensures a high degree of accessibility. The data transport from GW to NS is always encrypted, so that no falsification or misuse can occur.
The hire of NS is advantageous in terms of investitionload during the initial phase of the LoRaWAN infrastructure, because there is no investition into the hardware part of NS. The hire itself contains a regular NS maintenance and covers the licence fees related to the purchase of the operation system.
