Partner for IoT Module
March 10, 2017
high-quality Fujitsu sensor beacons with Wirepas Connectivity offer an
easy-to-use, connected module for various IoT application areas, such as
healthcare, industrial automation and smart building.
With the Wirepas Connectivity protocol, Fujitsu is now able to offer
ready-to-go solutions for various IoT applications – for example a
connected sensor beacon with an embedded high-accuracy
The Fujitsu sensor beacon is a small (40 x 31 x 12mm) CR2450 battery
cell powered node that will last for years. Fujitsu also offers the
possibility to enable Wirepas connectivity on the high-quality small
module FWM7BLZ20, currently released as the best-in-class Bluetooth®
version 4.2 module. The small form factor of just 15.7 x 9.8 x 1.7mm,
the integrated 32MHz and 32.768kHz crystal oscillators and high
performance embedded antenna around the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832
SoC provide the perfect module for the Wirepas de-centralized IoT
wireless network solution.
"In the constantly evolving and growing IoT market, customers are
looking for upgradable solutions instead of just hardware. This is
exactly what we are bringing into to the market, together with Wirepas.
For Own Equipment Manufacturers, we offer our wide range of wireless
modules on which Wirepas Connectivity can easily be embedded" - Dennis
van Doorn, Marketing Manager, Wireless Solutions, from Fujitsu says.
Wirepas Connectivity is a de-centralized radio communications protocol
that can be used in any device, with any radio chip and on any radio
band. The target market is industrial and infrastructure level IoT
applications that pose high requirements for the reliability, scale and
total cost of ownership. The technology is already deployed in several
large-scale IoT applications.
is a great addition to our partner ecosystem. Their radio modules are
greatly valued by the customers for their performance and quality. The
constantly growing product portfolio of Fujitsu components offers a
great platform on top of which Wirepas Connectivity can add value. We
are looking forward to changing the world one connected thing at a
time", Wirepas CEO Teppo Hemiä envisions.
IoT is driving the development and growth of connectivity technologies,
and different IoT applications have very diversified needs for
connectivity in terms of power, bandwidth, range, latency for example.
Moreover, the requirements evolve over time per application. Wirepas
Connectivity enables trade-offs between critical applications
requirements – run time. Also, over-the-air (OTA) updates can be done
for the application software and connectivity firmware, which enables
longer lifetime for the hardware and improves total cost of ownership.
