Mioty®: Cutting-edge connectivity for the future of metering
Mioty®: a breakthrough technology for massive IoT
Designed to become a worldwide standard for the Internet of Things (IoT), mioty® is a unique wireless communication protocol created to address the limitations of other Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) solutions. Thanks to a patented telegram splitting technology, data is transmitted in multiple sub-packages at different times and frequencies, ensuring unrivalled interference immunity and ultra-low power consumption. What’s more, mioty® is hardware-independent, scalable and secure. That makes it an attractive futureproof option for Smart Cities and Industry 4.0, as well as anyone operating in mobility, security, management and health. For example, in a fixed water network, mioty® can help utilities to optimize their distribution network through real-time analytics, enabling them to anticipate and eliminate leaks and other anomalies.
Mioty for metering: next-generation connectivity for metering
In order to optimize mioty® for the metering sector, Diehl Metering has developed mioty for Metering, a mioty-based IoT radio standard enriched with extra features. To improve accessibility and interoperability, mioty for Metering is set to be integrated into the Open Metering Standard (OMS), a communication standard that allows a wide range of meters and devices to operate together in the same system. And thanks to mioty’s capacity to deliver data as much, as frequently and as reliably as needed, utilities can benefit from a high Service Level Agreement (SLA). Furthermore, mioty for Metering is designed for optimal compatibility with billing applications and high-performance analytics based on historical data. It also offers utilities the agility they need to adapt to future requirements.
In a fixed network, mioty for Metering can be combined with Diehl Metering’s IZAR IoT Gateway Compact as a base station to open up a wealth of new opportunities in smart metering and smart city applications. For example, in combination with the HYDRUS 2.0, mioty for Metering allows you to make the most of the meter’s exceptional performance, range and its capacity to capture data in difficult-to-access locations. You can use that valuable data to build up a more accurate picture of your current situation and predict network challenges and opportunities in the future.
Powering new opportunities in metering and beyond
Once it is compatible with OMS, mioty for Metering will offer complete flexibility, allowing you to integrate any device into your network and benefit from a wide range of different sensors.
Whether you want to operate a fixed network and/or enable mobile readings, there’s no need for a network management server or additional configuration. Simply plug & play!
With a range around 30% better than similar LPWAN technologies, you can transfer data over 11 km and reach meters in challenging places. You’ll cover larger areas with fewer receivers, helping you to reduce installation, maintenance and operating costs.
Connect up to 50,000 transmitting devices to enable massive IoT – and reduce your Total Cost of Ownership by equipping your network with just a handful of receivers.
Telegram splitting technology ensures extreme robustness to interference from other networks, with less than 1% packet error rates, compared to over 10% for other LPWAN technologies. The result is unrivalled data availability.
Patented technology ensures information always reaches the gateway even in the case of telegram collisions. That means data flows are secured all the way from the meter to the Meter Data Management (MDM) software.
Extremely low power consumption helps to extend battery lifetimes while transmitting more data more regularly. You’ll have less need to replace devices due to battery exhaustion, reducing maintenance work and increasing TCO.
