The Weightless SIG has announced the arrival of Ubiik, new flagship technology vendor behind the Weightless-P low power, wide area network (LPWAN) Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Operating out of Taiwan and Japan, the company is creating the next wave of smarter LPWAN products and is bringing substantive disruption to this dynamic technology space.
Showcased recently at CTIA in Las Vegas, Weightless offered an early insight into Ubiik’s revolutionary LPWAN technology offering a step change in performance expectations. Ubiik was formed from the core team responsible for the groundbreaking LPWAN technology behind the Weightless-P open standard.
The Weightless SIG believes Ubiik is set to deliver transformative change in every one of the key parameters that define IoT performance. Integrating cutting edge design philosophy with established, best in class cellular approaches Ubiik is building the high performance, carrier grade, industrial IoT infrastructure of the future.
Based around a narrow band modulation scheme, Weightless-P offers full acknowledgement of 100% of uplink traffic for unmatched QoS in a system operating in unlicensed ISM and SRD spectrum. The technology overcomes the severe restrictions on network capacity imposed by inefficient spread spectrum regimes and enables new levels of network performance demanded by future users.
Founder and CEO, Tien-haw Peng, commented: “From the start we assembled a world class 'dream team' of hardware and software professionals to work on game changing technology for the IoT and with a focus on the next wave of LPWAN products. The Weightless-P technology we’re about to announce is going to surprise a lot of existing technology providers.”
Fabien Petitgrand, CTO of Ubiik, added: “We set out to change IoT, to challenge what ‘clean slate’ means in reality and to build the ultimate in highest performance LPWAN technology available - we succeeded.” He added: “In every relevant, measurable parameter from capacity to QoS, reliability to energy consumption, Weightless-P is demonstrably superior to alternative LPWAN technologies.”
Petitgrand will be describing Weightless-P technology and significant differentiators in detail at the Wireless Congress, running concurrently with the Electronica trade show, in Munich on 10 November 2016.
