Orange IoT Partnership with Sensing Labs

Actualités

Sensing Labs Simplifying user experience, a necessary condition for the mass deployment of IoT

What they do: Sensing Labs designs and develops LoRaWAN™ smart sensors, which are notably used in the smart building and industry 4.0 sectors. They include smart meters to track electricity, gas and/or water consumption, as well as temperature, moisture, presence and motion sensors.
What they do with us: as a premium partner, Sensing Labs has several of its sensors featured in the Orange Business Services IoT product range and integrated to the Live Objects platform. This partnership is evolving with a master distribution agreement.
Sensing Labs has had several of its smart sensors included in the Orange Business Services IoT device product range, with 9 featured in the IoT device catalogue and 6 in the IoT marketplace. The company also integrated its decoders to the Live Objects platform. Yann Guiomar, CEO of Sensing Labs, describes the company’s collaboration with Orange.

how to decode device payloads

To process the messages sent by sensors and transmitted via the LoRa® network, they must be made understandable with the decoding of Live Objects.

One of the benefits of Sensing Labs sensors resides in their embedded intelligence, which enables them to process data ‘on-site’ (using edge analytics) and apply high-compression algorithms prior to sending the data across LoRa-operated networks. The purpose is to boost the volume, and value, of data received by the customer, while limiting the energy impact of radio transmissions on the sensor’s battery.


the results

That’s why we developed modules enabling our customers to decode incoming radio transmissions, which they can integrate into their servers to access sensor data in a completely standardized format.

Working together with Orange teams allowed us to integrate these codecs onto the Live Objects platform. That helps to simplify the implementation process by making the decoding process more transparent for the customer. In this way, we can create a truly plug & play solution: the customer installs the sensors and, with no further action necessary, can access sensor data (raw data and analytics) on Live Objects! In our view, simplifying the user experience in this way is a necessary condition for the mass deployment of IoT solutions.


next steps

Orange offered us a master distribution agreement for its sensors. We think this is a crucial step in our collaboration with the Orange Group, because just as integrating codecs streamlines the implementation of the solution for the customer, signing the master contract simplifies the “business” process between our company and the various subsidiaries of the Orange Group seeking to develop their sales of low-bandwidth LoRa IoT solutions. These two steps are key to reducing our time-to-market and supporting the strong growth in the markets we serve.

Sensing Labs sensors for more energy efficient buildings

Actualités

Touleco – Ysis Percq broadcast – France Bleu Hérault

Sensing Labs, hosted at CAP OMEGA, makes buildings more energy efficient thanks to its low-consumption and long-range smart LoRaWAN™ sensors.

Data analysis identifies anomalies such as a leak, a light left on at abnormal times, or an overheated room when it is empty. Users can thus modulate their habits. The decrease in energy consumption can reach 30%.

Sensors of the Senlab range are also suitable for connected industry.

Created in 2014, Sensing Labs has 10 employees and has multiplied its turnover by 2.5 in 2017.

Actility launches Click & Go to facilitate IoT adoption

Blog

It’s no news to anyone that the IoT is still a fragmented market. When you want to deploy a dedicated LoRaWAN network, you have to find and buy from at least three different parties, three kinds of solutions:

  • Hardware: gateway and devices
  • Connectivity: a network server connecting to the LoRaWAN network
  • Application: data visualization and treatment

Test, deploy and scale

How do you make sure that these bricks are compatible and integrate smoothly? How tricky, long and costly is it to set them up?

That’s the kind of questions professionals who want to test, deploy and potentially scale IoT solutions stumble on. They are often deterred by a long buying cycle and complex implementation process.

Ludovic Callier, Head of sales and business development at Sensing Labs, Actility’s long-standing device partner, confirms: “I meet all the time companies that want to test our LoRaWAN sensors for one or several vertical use cases, but they struggle to figure out the other bricks they need to implement their use case…

“Complexity and no single point of contact means that decision-makers can’t make a choice and stay in a wait and see mode. For us, IoT providers, it’s a big loss of business!” Ludovic Callier, Sensing Labs

Over the past year, I’ve witnessed the story repeat… frustrating, huh?! Well, it gave our team as well as our hardware and application partners an idea: orchestrate the service for users. In other words, they need a pre-provisioned, integrated and packaged solution!

Same vertical needs

To kick off this service, we’re launching ten packages available in Europe and in the US. We focus on the most popular vertical needs such as agriculture, building & facility management, smart environment, and industries.

“End users ask us for the same vertical solutions all over Europe: smart metering, smart building and operations/supply chain optimization. It made perfect sense for Sensing Labs to leverage its large product folio to address these needs by offering our LoRaWAN sensors within Click & Go packages.” Ludovic Callier, Sensing Labs.

Each solution is packaged in a single box and includes a set of devices, one gateway, a ThingPark Wireless subscription for a LoRaWAN managed the network and a subscription to WMWLight to visualize, analyze and process the data of your assets through dashboards and graphs.

IoT apps built in a few hours

The trickiest part of building end-to-end solutions is the application layer. We partner with WMW, that builds vertical tailored IoT apps within a few hours. Bert Vanaken, the founder of WMW and his team, have been key supports to build Click & Go.

“ We see Click & Go as a POC in a box that could help boost end-user adoption. We specifically made an automated app-creation-engine to ease the experience for the end-user. This does not only allow us to showcase the power of our software framework but also delivers us a means to offer full end-to-end starter packages to our customers.

“Process optimization and simplification is what we love doing most, naturally, a one-stop shop concept like Click & Go fits perfectly into this.”  Bert Vanaken, WMW
