Choice of Communication Protocol
Develco tailors the choice of sensor technology and wireless communication technology to your new product idea. Various factors such as range, data volume, environment, usage patterns, speed, network, roaming etc. play a significant role.
To ensure quality and compatibility in the development of your new technological products Develco often uses well known communication protocols such as Wi-Fi, Wireless M-Bus, Bluetooth BLE, Z-Wave, SigFox, ZigBee, NB-IoT, LoRa WAN, and NFC.
All communication protocols each have their advantages and disadvantages. Develco compares the need for data transmission with the individual communication protocols before recommending the most optimal protocols for your smart products.
Maybe the above communication protocols do not meet the need for wireless communication for your products?
In this case Develco’s development team can design a tailored solution based on one or more standard components – and perhaps by adding a new proprietary protocol.
Develco recommends using proprietary protocols when your business:
- Needs a data volume and wireless communication which the well known communication protocols cannot cover
- Wants a closed system which cannot be connected to other equipment
- Has special battery life requirements
