Papaioea/Palmerston North, Aotearoa/New Zealand <14 February 2018> New Zealand’s first Weightless Internet of Things (IoT) wireless network has launched. In order to support the economic aspirations of a Māori community in the Manawatū, First Tree Growing Ltd is providing local Māori farmers hands on access to a range of emerging technologies in the smart agriculture space including the low power, wide area network technology called Weightless. One of the first projects to be
Ubiik Inc., the leading wireless monitoring solutions provider for the Industrial Internet of Things, announced today that it has released the world's first ultra low-power wireless e-paper display tag connected over kilometres. TAIPEI, TAIWAN FEBRUARY 15, 2018 Until now, the applicability of updating e-paper display tags has been constrained to short-to-mid ranges due to the limitations of existing communication standards, both open (Wifi, Bluetooth, Zigbee) and proprietary.
Ubiik CTO Fabien Petitgrand and Clement Dieudonne present the Weightless Starter Kit offering. The kit provides a “plug and play” hardware experience along with a multitude of user-friendly software tools, demo applications and more. The Weightless Starter Kit has allowed users to experience the distinguishing technical features of the high performance LPWAN technology: Weightless (formerly known as ‘Weightless-P’). Unboxing the Weightless Starter Kit reveals a base station a
LoRaWAN is unable to meet a key IoT network deployment requirement: bi-directional communication to upgrade firmware-over-the-air and update security patches to end-devices that have already been deployed in the field. The new LPWAN technology Weightless-P has taken position as the new catalyst to bring sustainable IoT networks to life.
Let's first take a look at the three reasons why LoRaWAN is unable to support Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) for a real IoT deployment.
RFID tags equipped with ePaper screens are replacing the tens of thousands of paper labels printed daily in cyclical warehouse and factory work flows. Ubiik, a company operating out of Taiwan, has managed to implement advancements to the well-established concept of RFID E-Paper. In effect, distinguished factories and warehouses all over Asia have been quick to adopt Ubiik’s solution to increase efficiency and transparency for their operations. RFID E-Paper solutions seen in t
LPWAN tech takes giant leap forward Ubiik Inc. today announced that it has launched hardware and SDKs for highly anticipated Weightless-P LPWAN technology at Embedded World 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany. By addressing all the technical problems of current LPWAN technologies, Weightless-P technology is fundamentally changing the face of LPWAN connectivity and bringing fresh impetus to the IoT industry. Weightless-P is the technology defined by the Weightless SIG open standards bo
Weightless SIG seeks unifying role in LPWA SAN JOSE, Calif. — The Weightless Special Interest Group is rebooting its effort to drive open standards in low-power, wide-area (LPWA) networks for the Internet of Things. A new startup has taken up the charge for its Weightless-P specification while the SIG aims to carve out a new role as a forum to unify the sector. Whether either initiative gains traction, SIG chief executive William Webb makes the case that it’s still in the ear
LPWAN (Low-Power, Wide Area Network) is a technology that supports IoT applications that require low energy consumption, long range, and low bandwidth. LPWAN meets the demands of a IoT growing segment that is not covered by any current technologies. The "first-to-market" technologies were Sigfox and LoRa. With a head start, these two technologies were able to create marketing buzz around the LPWAN sector and also engage in a few pilots. Unfortunately, early adopters have une

Operating out of Taiwan and Japan, the company is creating the next wave of smarter LPWAN products and is bringing substantive disruption to this dynamic
CREATE , UPDATE , TRACK CREATE paperless working environments for all types of industries. RFID E-Paper screens are updated wirelessly via NFC or UHF RFID technologies. RFID E-Paper is the perfect solution to replace all paper in cyclical labelling work flows and is a reliable means of tracking. Companies have calculated powerful ROI figures for RFID E-Paper based on saved paper costs, decreased errors, increased efficiency and ability to track assets. UPDATE wirelessly usin
Weightless-P is an ultra high performance LPWAN connectivity technology for the Internet of Things. It will use a narrow band modulation scheme offering a bidirectional communications capability to enable unrivalled quality of service (QoS) and add on functionality. The Standard will provide fully acknowledged 2-way communications offering both uplink and downlink capabilities and best in class QoS required for the stringent industrial IoT sector. Weightless-P will offer the
LPWAN stands for low-power wide area network. This IoT technology will pave the way for billions of new connected objects. Mainstream technologies like WiFi, Bluetooth, and Cellular 3G/4G have not been a valid solution. They just do not have the range, are too power consuming, or bear an overwhelming cost. For example: Bluetooth range is only about 10 meters Wifi range is only about 32 meters and would kill a battery source within days. Cellular 3G/4G is also too power hungry
E-paper is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ordinary ink on paper - even its flexibility - and according to new research when an e-paper is used instead of a printed paper, the paper, the printing and the physical distribution of the printed paper is avoided. Especially in cyclic industrial processes that involves continuous printing and labeling, E-Paper is a clear, "green" solution to eliminate all forms of paper waste. Of course, the e-paper device has su
Electronic paper (e-paper) are display devices that mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper. Unlike conventional backlit flat panel displays that emit light, electronic paper displays reflect light like paper and can be viewed from almost every viewing angle.Viable alternatives for regular newspaper have been available for roughly three years (Jan 2004), and often referred to as electronic paper, e-paper or e-readers. These products are meant to carry many of the qualit
