LoRa and Wireless Sensor Technology for Data Center Digital Twins
AKCP Announces LoRa based Wireless Tunnel™ environmental, power and security monitoring for data center digital twins.
Wired or Wireless Sensors
When we talk about wireless sensors in the data center, we are not talking about WiFi. There are options such as Zigbee, Bluetooth Low Energy, and LoRa. Out of these, LoRa is particularly interesting. It has a long range, and low power consumption and complete end to end encryption, making a powerful combination for data centers.
LoRa is a Long Range Radio technology from Semtech. It utilizes a spread spectrum modulation technique, which is derived from the Chirp Spread Spectrum technology. AKCP has developed a wireless sensor system, known as Wireless Tunnel™, tailored specifically to the needs of the data center, and critical infrastructure monitoring, that utilizes LoRa radio. This system has several benefits over standard LoRaWAN
Wireless Tunnel™ sensors deployed in the data center monitor environmental, security and power conditions. The sensors update the Digital Twin virtual model regularly with near real time monitoring.
Here are some examples of how LoRa based Wireless Tunnel™ sensors are utilized.
AKCP established in the USA in 1981, has 30+ years experience in professional sensor solutions.
