Capelon has worked with device communications and advanced meter readings for over 20 years and with smart streetlights for over a decade. The base for the connectivity in Capelon’s products has been a reliable and open standard powerline communication.
In 2016, the focus of the Capelon smart streetlight extended to the larger scope of a smart city. In a smart city, there can easily be several hundreds of thousand devices, so it is important that the platform of the city device network is truly scalable and robust and that devices are easily deployable.
To meet the real requirements facing the future of a smart city, Capelon has invested in an open IoT Integration platform and a network platform based on cutting-edge meshed RF technology. Capelon has also entered into a partnership with the fast growing RF expert company Wirepas in order to continue to provide our customers with the best and reliable solutions and support.
Wirepas is one of the leading and fastest growing RF technology companies. It is based in Finland but has offices all over the world. Currently, Wirepas has several millions of connected devices, and the company pride itself in having the largest single RF meshed network in the world. Before 2022, it expects that one billion devices would be connected to its RF technology.
The reason for Capelon’s decision to choose Wirepas is that the Finland-based company’s business strategy perfectly fits into our vision and that its connectivity solution perfectly matches the system solutions, which we expect to offer our customers, when facing the challenges of a truly scalable and open smart city solution.
In sum, Capelon offers a smart-city solution based on a unique and globally proven cutting-edge meshed RF solution which is designed specifically for large-scale IoT applications. We anticipate that with our solution, the network connectivity will be the simple part of the smart city equation. Users say they just prefer to install a device and then forget everything about it. It just works!
Nevertheless, we have assured our clients that we can provide the full expertise support from day one.
