ipXchange is proud to present another chat with an ipXpert, this time in the field of mesh networking with Oula Välipakka from Wirepas, who we first met at Embedded World 2023 – See our previous interview [here: https://ipxchange.tech/news/an-embedded-solution-for-super-scalable-reliable-mesh-networking-without-external-infrastructure/].
Though we usually try to keep interviews in our “Ask an ipXpert” series more design-challenge focussed than product focussed, when it comes to mesh networking, Wirepas’ technology changes the energy saving and network size possibilities so much that it could be considered a different form of connectivity entirely. This is especially true when you consider that Wirepas’ solution allows designers to build networks with close to one million devices in a single mesh, without the need for SIM cards, base stations, or subscriptions.
Enjoy this in-depth discussion as Oula outlines some key verticals where Wirepas’ mesh networking technology really shines, including:
- Smart tracking on building sites and in hospitals
- Smart lockers and employee wellbeing in smart building applications
- Predictive maintenance and remote monitoring in both old and new manufacturing facilities
- A World-record-breaking smart metering mesh with future-proven, OTA updates
