Wirepas’ non-cellular 5G mesh network in action!

With Wirepas, you’ll never have to worry that you’ve got too many devices in your IoT network…

At Embedded World 2024, ipXchange caught up with Oula Valipakka for a live demonstration of Wirepas’ connectivity solution based on the World’s first non-cellular 5G standard.

This truly disruptive innovation enables large-scale IoT mesh networking with billions of nodes within a single network. Wirepas’ technology also enables extremely high mesh network density for up to 1 million devices per square kilometre, making it ideal for smart metering in large cities, to give just one application example!

The live demonstration at the show featured 20 nodes – each a Nordic Thingy:91X IoT module – across four different halls. A single gateway at the Wirepas booth provides the connection to the server for monitoring, with each node acting as a completely independent access point in the mesh network.

Oula also shows us the full bi-directional communication capabilities of Wirepas’ 5G mesh network in action by changing the colour of the LED on the nearest of the Thingy:91Xs.

Though its non-cellular 5G mesh network is its latest achievement, Wirepas also provides several other solutions for large-scale mesh networking using 2.4-GHz or sub-GHz protocols.

Learn about all three technologies – and some key chipsets that support them – by following the link to the board page below, where you can also apply to evaluate this technology for your next commercial IoT project.

Keep designing!
