Simplify access to satellite IoT and connect intelligence at anytime anywhere

Kinéis, Sensing Labs and ZiFiSense join hands in development of Software-Defined IoT chip for seamless access of satellites/ground networks

Kinéis, a satellite-based IoT operator, along with Sensing Labs, a provider of smart IoT solutions for the EMEA market, and ZiFiSense, a provider of “ZETA LPWAN” silicon IP and “chip-to-cloud” IoT infrastructure, are working on a SW-configurable and self-adaptive LPWAN chipset that is capable of connecting to Access Points on the ground and to satellites when it is out of reach of ground based infrastructure. With its innovative DSP+ASIC signal processing architecture, the chipset is expected to be the industry’s first that supports direct communication to LEO satellites through the same LPWAN radio. The work is also backed by fabless chip makers from the ZETA Alliance providing volume production capability that meets the demand of the global market at the lowest cost. Sensing Labs shall bring to the European logistics industry complete IoT solutions making use of the technical features of this new chip.

With seven satellites already in orbit and 25 more to be launched within the next 18 months, Kinéis differentiates itself with a very low-power wireless communication technology that has been used for over 40 years to receive signal from battery powered sensors, as well as producing GPS-free location estimates,. On the other hand, based on the company’s proprietary ZETA AM-FSK radio technology, ZiFiSense is leading the “LPWAN 2.0” road-map in which the size and cost of sensors equipped with long range radios become comparable to those of RFID tags enabling a ubiquitous mass of connected “things” beyond billions.

This new chip is scheduled to be launched globally in Q1 2023. The companies believe it shall lead to the emergence of a seamless infrastructure with the convergence of LEO satellites covering things in rural areas and those on the move, with ground-based networks covering urban areas and indoors. There are a wide range of use cases in verticals such as Connected Transport, Logistics, and Oil & Gas & Wind industries that are expected to benefit from connecting battery powered sensors to such a global infrastructure.

Alexandre Tisserant, Kineis, CEO:
ZiFiSense integration of Kinéis technology is a significant milestone towards simplifying access to satellite IoT. The global coverage we provide is the perfect complement for terrestrial networks and this chipset will make integration and hybridization easier, opening the way for many new use cases requiring such seamless hybrid connection”.

Yann Guiomar, Sensing Labs, CEO:
‘’This coming LPWAN new chipset will be a real game changer in the field of hybrid satelliteterrestrial communication and will unlock the business potential of the myriad of use cases requiring such an hybridation without any extra cost compared with traditional terrestrial legacy technologies. We are proud and excited to be part of this adventure with ZifiSense and Kinéis.’’

Dr. Zhuoqun Li, ZiFiSense, CEO:
‘’It is a great pleasure working with Kinéis and Sensing Labs in this cuttingedge project. By converging satellite IoT and LPWAN with a low power single radio chip, we shall present to the industry how the vision of “connected intelligence anytime anywhere” could be achieved with minimal cost.’’About Kinéis:
Founded in 2018, Kinéis is a satellite operator and a global connectivity provider. It inherited CNES and CLS expertise from forty years of working with the Argos system and developed reliable technology that provides easy access to useful satellite data. In order to make life easier for professionals and individuals and to encourage them to use its product and services, Kinéis locates and connects objects wherever they are on the planet. It does this by deploying its full capacity for technological innovation to combine NewSpace and IoT.

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.”.
