LORIX One and MeteoHelix IoT Pro solution for professional meteorological and agricultural applications

New product spotlight at the Meteo Expo 2019 in Gevena Switzerland

LORIX One LoRaWAN Gateway detail.

BARANI DESIGN Technologies in cooperation with Wifx Sàrl from Switzerland with showcase a professional meteorological wireless solution designed for areas with limited GSM/LTE coverage. This low-bandwidth wireless meteorological system requires very low data rates as typical of mountainous regions and rural or outback locations. These remote locations where meteorological data is scarce but critical for accurate weather prediction for nearby population centers are currently serviced by costly satellite data services. Now remote meteorological data coverage is attainable for a few hundred dollars wherever GSM/LTE or Wifi is available.

Outdoor IoT wireless LoRaWAN gateway with 10+ km wireless range.

  • LORIX One professional IP65 outdoor LoRaWAN gateway from Wifx of Switzerland.
