IoT – Internet of Things

We have created universal, secure and easy-to-use platform for faster development of new applications in the IoT world – Xfor.IO application server.

 
Xfor.IO is the environment for anyone who wants to implement, try or simply understand the Internet of Things.
Basic scheme of solutions for the Internet of Things

The Xfor.IO application server developed by our company is an integration platform for the IoT world. It integrates any sensors of any manufacturer via any IoT provider into a form where we can easily display the data up to the possibility of creating our own applications or analyzes over individual data.

Individual integrated parts IoT

IoT sensors

Sensors are the cornerstone of the IoT network. They ensure the collection of various quantities, but this is definitely not their greatest advantage. IoT sensors boast battery capabilities. In most applications, the battery life is between five and ten years.

IoT networks

Infrastructure is another building block of IoT technology - thanks to it, sensors and the application server can communicate on both sides. Our company currently supports all IoT technologies - Sigfox, LoraWAN and Narrow Band

Applications
The third pillar is applications. Xfor.IO can display the data independently or allow the connection to the infrastructure via the rest interface or write the application's own use for the customer's needs. At the same time, it enables data processing (BI) or the use of artificial intelligence

IoT Sensors

IoT sensors are the cornerstone of any IoT solution. Xfor.IO allows you to integrate any sensors from any vendor. We currently have integrated Codea and SolidusTech suppliers. If you are interested in using our application server and working with other sensor manufacturers, contact us, we will ensure integration.

IoT infrastructure and their Providers

IoT infrastructure and service providers are an essential part of the IoT world. Currently, the most important networks worldwide are Sigfox, Lora and Narrow Band. All are supported by our Xfor.IO application server.

Sigfox
Sigfox

network built on a closed platform owned by the French company Sigfox. The Sigfox network provides roaming between countries where this network is available. Typical network parameters are: range up to 60km for direct visibility, and up to 3km in indoor environment, the length of the transmission message is 12 Bytes in the uplink direction and 8 Bytes in the downlink direction. The maximum number of messages in the uplink direction is 140 and 4 in the downlink direction. In the Czech Republic, this network is operated by SIMPLECELL

LoRa
LoRa

A network that is built on an open platform, which guarantees the ability of the sensor to operate under different infrastructures. Typical network parameters are: range up to 40km for direct visibility, and up to 3km in indoor environment, the length of the transmission message is up to 220Bytes in the uplink and downlink direction. Max. number of messages per day 420 in any ratio of upling / downling messages. The network in the Czech Republic is operated by STARNET and České radiokomunikace. The LORAWAN network is an open standard, the technology of which can be operated even in an autonomous environment.

NarrowBand
NarrowBand
NarrowBand's network of major mobile operators based on LTE technology guarantees very good availability thanks to nationwide coverage. NB-IOT is operated in the licensed frequency band, which guarantees high availability of the NB-IOT service. Typical network parameters are: range up to 80km for direct visibility, and up to 6km in an indoor environment, the length of the transmission message is 1280 Bytes. The maximum number of messages is 50MB per month according to the selected tariff. In the Czech Republic, this network is operated by Vodafone and O2.

IoT Applications

IoT applications are the most important element in the entire IoT ecosystem. They make it possible to work with data provided by the IoT infrastructure and subsequently provide information for further decisions within the company or household. You can only view data provided through Xfor.IO using tables and graphs.

Through the rest interface, you can also connect Xfor.IO to your infrastructure and use existing applications to process them. There is a group of applications working with large volumes of data – ie BI (big data) and therefore AI (artificial intelligence).

You can then use the rest interface to write a new application. Examples of such applications are Consumption Readings.
