Pervasive Nation network gets powered by Davra, Orbiwise
2 September 2016 | 0
Davra Networks and Orbiwise are to work with the Connect centre for future networks and communications at Trinity College Dublin in the countrywide roll out of the Pervasive Nation Internet of Things (IoT) network.
Orbiwise, a Swiss-based IoT firm, will supply network management software, while Irish start-up Davra Networks will provide its application enablement and data management platform, RuBAN.
Pervasive Nation provides a network infrastructure for the Internet of Things to facilitate academic research and the testing of pre-commercial ideas by Irish companies. It is based largely on the use of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology.
“This is our first engagement with the Irish Internet of Things landscape,” said Domenico Arpaia, CEO, Orbiwise. “Our software solution, UbiQ, is particularly suited to Pervasive Nation; it requires minimal operating expense and is capable of supporting millions of connected objects while allowing the entire network to be operated from a single Web-based graphical user interface.”
Paul Glynn, CEO of Davra Networks, said: “Pervasive Nation involves the large scale deployment of sensors across Ireland and will generate large quantities of complex data. RuBAN will take this sensor and network data and present it in an easy to understand and usable format. This step is critically important for the delivery of any successful IoT application.”
Prof Linda Doyle, Director of Connect, said: “Davra Networks and Orbiwise are significant global IoT influencers. Davra’s RuBAN recently won best overall platform at the IoT Evolution expo in Las Vegas, while the spectral efficiency of Orbiwise’s UbiQ LPWA platform is very impressive. These innovative technologies are ideal for the Pervasive Nation network as we create the IoT future here in Ireland.”
It is predicted that there will be more than 20 billion connected devices by 2020 with a global economic impact measured in trillions of dollars.
