Meeta Co develops proprietary Internet of Things (IoT) devices which connect to LoraWAN networks. In Australia, the devices use frequency sub band 915-928 MHz. Devices are programmable for worldwide frequency bands which include Europe (EU 863-870 MHz) and US (US 902-928 MHz).
Meeta Co works with councils, community groups and organisations in both regional and city environments to create public access to the LoraWAN network. This includes installing gateways; developing and implementing node devices; data analysis and sharing for practical applications.
LoRaWAN is an open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT connectivity.
LoRaWAN™ is a Low Power Wide Area Network designed to connect low-cost, battery operated sensors over long distances. Key benefit in using LoRa network over 3/4G equivalent is that devices can have very long battery life and gateway/network costs are relatively cheap. Devices can be in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost prohibitive to connect. Worldwide, more than 80 major carriers have deployed LoRaWAN networks and 500+ key technology companies have deployed more than 50 million sensors worldwide.
LoRaWAN operates in the unlicensed band and supports indoor and outdoor applications. Like cellular, LoRaWAN technology is highly secure from end devices to the application server. Currently, there is 70,000+ LoRaWAN-based gateways deployed worldwide by 2019 and expected to reach 200,000 by 2020.
Meeta device integration is multilayered, providing real-time, online access to usage data, user behaviors, service scheduling, maintenance and sustainability reporting .
Device management, updating and adjustment can be performed via Bluetooth using the Meeta Co App.
