Since many manhole covers provide access to important infrastructure beneath, it is important to monitor each one in order to track any tampering or unauthorized opening. With the development of technology and the rise of IoT, real-time detection of manhole cover movement has become a demand so that remote data can be sent and detected location if moved in order protect against any unpredicted access. Low Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) offers great value for wide area coverage with higher capacity over other solutions.
LPWAN SIMPLE ARCHITECTURE
WHY IOT OVER LPWAN?
LPWAN (Low Power Wide-Area Network) is an advantageous networking solution due to its low energy consumption and simple installation process. LPWAN uses the ISM frequency spectrum to provide a low-power wide area network. The use of this frequency band allows LPWAN systems to be smaller, faster and more reliable than traditional narrowband networks.
This type of network is perfect for massive spaces such as cities, schools, hospitals and offices that have a high demand for data collection. The advantages of LPWAN extend to greater productivity and impproved efficacy from the capacity to link more devices concurrently. Additionally, costs associated with linking units over a broad area network are minimized leading to shorter setup times and lower monthly bills overall. LPWAN technology offers a range of advantages, including minimal power consumption and prolonged battery life as well as decreased upkeep. Additionally, it facilitates the logging of data for inspection purposes while also enabling swift access to information in case of any problems with the system. Furthermore, users will be notified if preset parameters are exceeded.
