SmartNetwork Devices 



SmartNetwork Overview

SmartSpace is made-up of one or more SmartNetworks. Each SmartNetwork is connected to Internet directly by means of a Gateway or indirectly by means of a wired or wireless backbone (Wifi, WM-Bus, PLC, etc).

Through Internet, data are delivered to the SmartSpace Data Server, which provides to reassemble them and to support their on-line access to remote clients and specific applications.

SmartSpace Topology

 

A SmartNetwork provides coverage of large areas with a minimal number of devices (Routers and Repeaters) and enables two-way wireless communication with end-devices for monitoring, active control and location service.
SmartNetwork is the unique battery operated mesh network, capable of end-device roaming and handover (end-device mobility from one network to another) without additional power consumption.
Moreover it operates in asyncronous mode, that is with no latency and with no timeslot restriction to communication and data throughput. For this reason SmartNetwork is the unique battery operated sensor network to perform Radio Frequency Location without external power supply. 

The end devices (sensors and tags) can be connected to SmartNetwork via UHF link (GFSK modulation), directly to Network nodes (Routers) or to Range Extender Devices (Repeaters). Many Repeaters can be connected to form a UHF multihop chain in order to further extend the connection range and reach isolated sensors.

Routers forward messages for other devices, supports complex, self-configuring  self-healing mesh networks with as many as 65,000 nodes. Routers extend network area coverage, dynamically route around obstacles, and provide backup routes in case of network congestion or device failure.
