Guide to the various technologies (LoRa(WAN), Sigfox and Wireless-Mbus protocols)

This guide will help provide you with all the information you need to be able to choose the most suitable radio protocol for your requirements.

At Enless we use different of radio protocols for our sensors and it can sometimes be difficult for new users to find their way around… We currently use three distinct radio protocols: Wireless M-Bus, Sigfox and LoRa(WAN). Which technology is best for what you need and what are the advantages of one technology over another?

First of all, bear in mind that Enless sensors operate by radio and autonomously. The use of radio transmitters makes sense when installing cables is difficult and/or too expensive. Enless transmitters do not need wiring and are powered by replaceable batteries.

  • What are my requirements? Is it simply to feedback data from various types of sensors and to display the values (temperature, air quality, consumption rates, etc.)? Or do I need to use the data for actions to regulate certain elements within the building?

  • Are the data going to be processed locally? Is the site in question already equipped with a PLC? Can I pass the data through a remotely accessible Cloud?

  • Is the site in question large? Are the radio points in question far from each other or all close to each other?

Based on your answers to these questions, we can identify the best radio protocol for you to use.
