Acal BFi has added the latest M2M wireless communications technology to its extensive product portfolio in a new partnership with Embit SRL. Empowering the IoT, Acal BFi now offers and supports Embit’s full product and technology portfolio, which includes wireless modules and components for IEEE 802.15.4, W-MBUS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ZigBee. It also brings the latest wireless technology to market, with full support for LoRa and LoRaWAN and, in the coming months, SIGFOX.

The new pan-European deal brings Embit’s product portfolio to new markets and sectors, with the two companies working seamlessly to deliver off-the-shelf, plug-and-play solutions.

With Embit’s support, Acal BFi can deliver fully customised components and modules, tailored to customer’s requirements. Acal BFi can also integrate the technology with other products and designs to create bespoke, cutting-edge solutions for any market or application.

Matthias Beuther, European Business Development Manager for Wireless Products, Acal BFi, commented, “We are entering into a new era for technology with the IoT. It is a revolution in the way we utilise technology and we are not far from seeing billions of devices talking to one another seamlessly. However, this is dependent on wireless technology such as those offered by Acal BFi in partnership with Embit.

“I’m particularly excited to add LoRa technology to our extensive portfolio. A relatively new technology, LoRa is extremely flexible, scalable and secure and is quickly becoming the global standard for low energy radio communications. Widely supported by the industry, LoRa and LoRaWAN are truly empowering the future of the Internet of Things.”

Fabio Bonizzi, Chief Executive Officer, Embit, added, “Wireless communications has quickly become an integral part of the technological universe, but we are only just at the cusp of the new IoT era".

"With Acal BFi’s support, we are extremely excited about what the future holds. With greater connectivity, designers and engineers can put theory into practice and bring the next generation of technology to market.”
