Nouveau partenariat: ZIFISense et Sensing Labs

ZiFiSense s’implante en Europe afin de promouvoir ZETA comme la nouvelle génération de technologie LPWA

Paris, le 1er Février 2021ZiFiSense, un des leaders innovants de l’internet des objets connectés (IoT) et inventeur de la technologie ZETA LPWA, a annoncé, en collaboration avec la société Sensing Labs, le lancement sur le marché européen de ses modules RF ZETA et ZETags, capteurs et équipements de réseau.

ZETA utilise un système avancé de modulation et de codage M-FSK inventé par ZiFiSense pour détecter et démoduler les signaux provenant d’émetteurs de très faible puissance. La sensibilité du récepteur M-FSK peut ainsi atteindre – 150 dBm. ZETA offre ainsi des portées de communication très élevées tout en maintenant une puissance d’émission très faible. La technologie offre également une haute capacité réseau et des débits de données de 20 Kbps à 500 Kbps, tout en étant compatible avec la plupart des puces (G) FSK du marché. ZETA est en outre la première technologie LPWA supportant un maillage distribué (Mesh).

La technologie ZETA s’impose aujourd’hui progressivement comme un nouveau standard de l’IoT au Japon, en Chine et en Asie du Sud-Est. Cette technologie LPWA de nouvelle génération élargit l’utilisation de l’IoT dans les domaines des bâtiments et de l’industrie ; grâce à des modules de la taille d’un timbre-poste (ZETags), elle permet de connecter et suivre de petits objets tels que des enveloppes ou des colis (logistique). La collaboration entre ZiFiSense et Socionext permettra de réduire encore les coûts de cette technologie, grâce à un nouveau SoC ZETag en 2021.

Ce partenariat signé avec Sensing Labs s’inscrit dans l’expansion de la ZETA Alliance à l’Europe. Les intégrateurs et fournisseurs européens de l’IoT seront invités à s’associer à la coopération technologique et commerciale des 300 membres actuels de la ZETA Alliance qui contribuent à un nouveau modèle d’accès universel à l’IoT LPWAN 2.0. Cela fait écho aux décisions de NTT DoCoMo, SoftBank, China Mobile, Nokia Bell (Nokia Networks) et, récemment, STMicroelectronics, de rejoindre la ZETA Alliance comme membres promoteurs.

Sensing Labs et son réseau de distributeurs européens feront la promotion et la distribution des solutions basées sur ZETA et ZETags en collaboration avec l’équipe support de ZiFisense Europa, MM. Bernard SOULEZ et Emmanuel MERIL.

« Nous sommes très excités par l’Accord de partenariat signé avec ZiFiSense », a déclaré Yann Guiomar, Directeur général de Sensing Labs. « La technologie ZETA développée par ZiFiSense offre des avantages déterminants en coût et en performances pour déployer à grande échelle des capteurs LPWA, notamment dans les applications logistiques ; nous sommes convaincus que cette technologie jouera ainsi un rôle-clé en Europe avec son adoption rapide par les industriels et entrepreneurs de l’IoT. L’annonce faite la semaine dernière par STMicroelectronics de son engagement au sein de la ZETA Alliance nous conforte dans cette vision »

 

Yann Guiomar, Directeur général de Sensing Labs, bénéficie d’une connaissance étendue et d’une expérience réussie sur les différents marchés de l’IoT et des Télécoms. Il a occupé des postes de direction au sein du Groupe Elster et de Coronis System.

 

 

Bernard Soulez, membre de l’équipe support de ZiFiSense Europa, a occupé des postes de direction au sein du Groupe Bouygues et de ses branches ; il est actuellement Ambassadeur pour la Smart Buildings Alliance (SBA).

ZiFiSense is expanding to Europe to promote ZETA as a new generation of LPWA technology

Paris, 1st February 2021 ZiFiSense, an innovative Long-Range IoT leader and the inventor of ZETA LPWA, has announced that it will cooperate with Sensing Labs to launch its ZETA and ZETags IoT modules and associated IoT solutions, sensors and network equipment, on the European markets.

ZETA leverages an advanced M-FSK modulation and coding scheme created by ZiFiSense that allows the system to detect and demodulate signals from transmitters of extremely low power. M-FSK receiver sensitivity can get as low as -150dBm. Hence ZETA can achieve extremely long wireless-communication range with low transmitter output power. The technology also distinguish itself from excellent scalability supporting data rates from 20bps to 500kbps while being downward compatible with most (G)FSK chips in the market. ZETA is also the first LPWA standard that supports Distributed Mesh Access.

ZETA technology is quickly becoming an emerging IoT standard throughout Japan, China, and South-East Asia. As a new generation of LPWA technology, this technology is already well known for its stamp-sized sensor (Zetag) that expands use cases of long range IoT from buildings, machines, to even small objects such as envelopes and parcels. Collaboration between ZiFiSense and Socionext shall see further cost reduction in the technology in 2021 with a new Zetag SoC chip.

The partnership signed with Sensing Labs is a first step in the deployment of the ZETA Alliance over all Europe. IoT players, vendors and distributors will be invited to join the technological and commercial cooperation of the current 300 Alliance members in order to deploy a new model of LPWA 2.0 – Pervasive IoT. This move echoes the joining of NTT Docomo, SoftBank, China Mobile, Nokia Bell and, recently, of ST Microelectronics as global promoter members of the ZETA Alliance.

Sensing Labs, together with its European distribution network, will promote and distribute solutions based on ZETA and ZETags, with ZiFiSense Europa support team, Mr. Bernard Soulez and Mr. Emmanuel Meril.

“We are very excited by the partnership we signed with Zifisense” said Yann Guiomar, CEO of Sensing Labs. “ZETA, the technology developed by Zifisense, offers decisive advantages in terms of cost and performances to massively deploy LPWA sensors and tags-based solutions in Europe, notably for logistics solutions. We are convinced that this technology will play a key role in Europe with its adoption by industrial and IoT players. The announcement made last week by ST Microelectronics to join the ZETA alliance reinforce our confidence in this vision.”.

 

Yann Guiomar, CEO Sensing Labs, has extensive understanding and hands-on experience in IoT sensors business. He previously held management positions in Elster Group and Coronis Systems.

 

 

Bernard Soulez, ZiFiSense Europa support team, previous experiences include management positions in the Bouygues Group, presently Ambassador for the Smart Buildings Alliance (SBA).

 

 

Emmanuel Meril, ZiFiSense Europa support team, previous experience includes notably partner with CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats.

The streaming mode

What is the streaming mode?

The streaming mode allows advanced data processing thanks to the timestamping of each pulse emitted by a water or gas meter.

This mode allows a very fine analysis of consumption profiles.

How streaming mode works ?

  • The timestamps of each pulse are compressed and stored in memory by SenlabM.
  • A radio message is transmitted as soon as there is enough available measures to fill a LoRaWAN frame or there has been no transmission for a given period of time.
  • SLCodec allows to decode the radio message and thus to retrieve the timestamps of each pulse detected by SenlabM.

What is going on ?

The streaming mode is able to transmit compressed timestamps of pulses output by the water and gas meters and captured by Senlab M.

SL Codec allows to retrieve the timestamps of the pulses from the radio messages generated.

In conclusion, the streaming mode allows a very fine analysis of water and gas consumption measures.
