September 13, 2016 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Wirepas (Tampere, Finland) and Telit (Rome, Italy) have partnered to bring new, Wirepas-enabled, ultra-low-power connectivity modules to the market. Together, the two companies are targeting large-scale IoT applications such as asset tracking, smart lighting, and logistics.

Wirepas technology software with Telit Bluemod+S42 platform at 2.4 GHz is a great example of what our new business unit will add to the Telit total IoT solution portfolio,” said Felix Marchal, Executive Vice President of GNSS and Short Range Wireless in a statement.

Wirepas Connectivity is a de-centralized radio communications protocol for large-scale Industrial IoT applications such as smart metering, lighting, asset tracking, logistics, and environmental sensoring. It enables limitless scale, ultra-low-power operations, high reliability, and it is easy to deploy.

The key to the performance is in the de-centralized network architecture. The devices decide the best actions by themselves locally. No central network management is needed. The local decision-making ensures that the devices always operate the similar way, independent of the network size or the devices’ locations within the network.

The BlueMod+S42 is the latest Telit Bluetooth v4.2 single mode module. The module boasts very small dimensions (17- x 10- x 2.6-mm). With operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, this high-end Bluetooth module has a line-of-sight range of more than 800 meters.

BlueMod +S42 it is CE, FCC, IC and KCC certified and qualified according to the Bluetooth v4.2 specification.
