Partnership delivers MBN52832 embedded Bluetooth module
Murata announces the integration of Wirepas Mesh, the wireless connectivity software focused on industrial grade, large-scale IoT applications, with its MBN52832 embedded Bluetooth Module, creating a scalable solution for low-power sensor networks.
Selecting the most appropriate LPWAN protocol
Projections show that the trend for people living in urban, rather than rural, environments will continue, with hundreds of millions relocating to cities over the next few decades. Consequently, the demands being placed on local amenities and the rate at which available resources are consumed are both rising dramatically – and this, in turn, is putting intense strain on the existing infrastructure. Koichi Sorada, Product Manager and Pawan J...
