Key Infrastructure and LoRaWAN Network Server features for industrial IoT deployments

How to deploy a reliable network from day one? What are the main caveats and pitfalls ? What are the differences between Open Source and professionally supported LNS solutions ?

Session 1 (in English): November 4th 10:00 CET Paris (16:00 Singapore)
Session 2 (in English) : November 4th 17:00 CET Paris (12:00 New York)
Session 3 (in French): November 9th, 17:00 CET Paris

Synopsys:

The journey from proof of concept to fully functional industrial use case is full of pitfalls. The very high density of sensors and harsh radio environment require extreme care in the network design to meet the stringent requirements for high availability and low packet-error rate.

In this webinar, Actility experts will highlight the critical elements of a LoRaWAN network and provide architecture recommendations as well as detailed checklists to de-risk industrial IoT projects and prevent vendor lock-in.

Often, PoCs which seem to work fine in the lab fail during the scale-up or run phase because the complexity of LoRaWAN ADR, the critical importance of macro-diversity, and the cost of regression testing when upgrading live networks have been overlooked.

In this context, the webinar will explain how industrial LPWAN platforms address specifically these issues and help bridge the gap from lab-tests to zero downtime mass upgrades in the field without generating high overhead costs. Such overheads rapidly become prohibitive when trying to build industrial HA and non-regression testing programs on top of simple open-source network servers.

Synopsys:

This is the 2d edition of our “LoRaWAN® Frontline” Webinar Series, dedicated to the latest and most exciting developments related to LoRaWAN technology, with feedback from the field coming from our guest Partners and Clients. In this session we will focus on Edge Computing, together with AWS, Advantech and Factory Systemes.

Cloud-based platforms are great for most use cases. However, cloud is obviously not an option for isolated sites, and more generally there are several situations where cloud needs to be extended by on-premises processing or storage. For example, many industrial use cases require site survivability or deterministic latency. The volume of data can also become a problem for cloud-only: ubiquitous sensor deployments with frequent measurements can quickly generate terabytes of data which becomes impractical and costly to store and process in the Cloud.

Edge Computing extends the capabilities of the Cloud, bringing local resiliency, computation and storage to the Edge of the network, combined with the sensing infrastructure. Edge Computing is the perfect complement of LoRaWAN private networks for On-Prem IoT deployments, particularly for Industry 4.0 and mission critical projects.

In this session, Actility, AWS, Advantech and Factory Systems will present several ready-to-use technical solutions to implement Edge Computing for LoRaWAN IoT networks, illustrated by a variety of Industry 4.0 use cases. You will learn about AWS SiteWise and GreenGrass, Advantech sensing and IPC solution, and hear from Factory Systems why Edge Computing is a must-have whenever you need to integrate wireless IoT with existing legacy industrial fieldbus infrastructure.

A typical industrial facility has thousands of sensors generating data. With the Industrial IoT, manufacturers, for example, can combine machine data from a single line, factory, or a network of sites, such as manufacturing plants, assembly facilities, and refineries, to proactively improve performance by identifying potential bottlenecks, failures, gaps in production processes, and quality issues before they happen. AWS has broad and deep IoT services, from the edge to the cloud, and is the only cloud vendor to bring together data management and rich analytics in easy-to-use services designed for noisy IoT data. The open source-edge runtime and cloud service AWS IoT Greengrass seamlessly extends AWS to edge devices to act locally on the data generated, while still using the cloud for management, analytics, and durable storage. Managed services such as AWS IoT SiteWise allow to collect and process industrial data locally and build hybrid industrial applications that work seamlessly across the edge and cloud – all integrated by Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise platform.

How to deploy your Indoor Air Quality Management solution using a LoRaWAN® connected Starter Kit

Introducing the End-to-end IoT Solution by Actility, Elsys and WMW

Packshot of the Air quality starter kit

Synopsis:

Optimization of air quality indoors is essential for more healthy and productive indoor living and working conditions. CO2 concentration is a key indicator of air quality. A High amount of CO2 in the air, means also a high number of aerosols, which increases risks of infection, especially in the Covid-19 context.  Enhancing indoor air quality (IAQ) could be as effective in reducing aerosol transmission of viruses as vaccinating 50-60% of the population according to scientific research. 

At this webinar, Actility and our Partners Elsys and WMW will present a complete IoT solution as response to this challenge, its components, use cases and  real-life implementations, and the benefits of LoRaWAN technology when applied to this use case.  You will learn how to easily set up the solution in your building, and which valuable data and insights you’ll be able to quickly get from it.

Indoor Air Quality Monitoring: LoRaWAN® IoT Solutions
and Real-life Deployments

Webinar

Synopsis:

In the last few years, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has received increasing attention from environmental governance authorities and IAQ-related standards are getting stricter. People spend about 90% of their time in indoor environments, and IAQ has a significant impact on health and quality of life in general. Poor indoor air quality is known to be harmful to vulnerable groups such as children or those suffering chronic respiratory and/or cardiovascular diseases.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought IAQ Monitoring to the front stage, as it plays a crucial role in minimizing viral transmission in schools, offices and restaurants. Besides enacting social distancing behavioral change, building owners and operators need to leverage a range of tools and strategies to optimize the operational performance of buildings in order to give their tenants confidence in returning to the workplace safely. Enhancing indoor air quality (IAQ) could be as effective in reducing aerosol transmission of viruses as vaccinating 50-60% of the population according to scientific research. Monitoring carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), and also humidity and temperature, require installation of new sensors in facilities that usually do not have pre-existing wiring for IAQ. Such retrofit installations are greatly facilitated by wireless IoT networks and the fast-growing LoRaWAN standard has become the preferred infrastructure for IAQ monitoring.

At this webinar, Actility and our Partners Veolia, NanoSense, Birdz and Axenova, will present the Internet of Things response to this challenge, covering the most important and reproducible elements: various air measurements, occupancy, relevant thresholds and recommended actions on these thresholds, the added value that can be produced by combining measurements, the existing IoT Solutions from market leaders and detailed examples their real-life implementations, and the particular advantage and benefits of LoRaWAN technology when applied to this use case.

Proximity Detection and Contact Tracing for COVID-19 Webinar

24th June, 2020

Description:

People are the most important assets of any organization, and amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, businesses and industries have to ensure secure social distancing and contact tracing to allow their people to feel more confident about working in a co-located physical workplace. In this webinar we will be talking about how LoRaWAN devices can help fight against COVID-19 by detecting proximity and contact tracing among people in areas like offices or public spaces. Join us to learn how to:

  • Ensure that people are keeping the safe distance between each other and reduce virus interactions.
  • Avoid any temporary shutdown of your facility with enhanced safety measures.
  • Trace the interactions between infected and healthy people to identify a contamination cluster

LoRaWAN is designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements. It has high security integrated in its design and the powerful LoRa Alliance ecosystem, endorsing it.
