Silicon Labs partnered with Wirepas in making available what is called as "Wirepas Massive", a scalable and cost-effective to connect and localize sensors, tags and luminaires on Silicon Labs’ EFR32BG21 (BG21) and EFR32BG22 (BG22) modules and SoCs.
“When you fuse the scalability of our Massive with the ultra-low power of Silicon Labs’ BG21 and BG22 solutions, the possibilities become endless,” stated Teppo Hemiä, CEO of Wirepas. “The unparalleled combination opens the door for a variety of use cases that transcend asset tracking and extend to connected lighting, smart energy and – consequently – sustainability.”
Wirepas Massive supports flexible IoT deployments with high reliability and interference tolerance. Typical applications include large scale lighting control systems, goods and assets tracking across the supply chain with embedded high-density inventory,battery-operated infrastructure to monitor buildings and track assets.
The deployment of Wirepas Massive for end-to-end logistics, as the ultra-low power and affordability of Silicon Labs’ BG22 offers logistics players a unique system for pallet and goods tracking throughout the supply chain, suggested in the release. The solution also makes it possible to connect access control, smart lighting and sensors to a single network – all to power smart buildings.
“Silicon Labs portfolio of wireless products is designed to meet the most demanding IoT applications with industry-leading security and field-proven reliable wireless performance, all delivered in an optimized SoC,” said Ross Sabolcik, vice president and general manager, Industrial & Commercial IoT, Silicon Labs. “We’ve had a long-standing partnership with Wirepas to help them deliver large scale mesh networks for demanding professional installations. We are pleased to continue our partnership with Wirepas and that they have chosen our BG21 and BG22 family of high-performance, wireless SoCs for their Wirepas Massive solution.”
Part of the Series 2 EFR32 portfolio, BG21 and BG22 are designed to make IoT products low-power, scalable and secure.
