Toronto based Behr Technologies (BehrTech) has announced their MYTHINGS platform that makes IIoT LPWAN set-up straightforward and painless. This hardware agnostic, interoperable, and integrable wireless connectivity software platform is the first to use the ETSI TS 103-357 standard.
The first offering in the line is the MYTHINGS Module, a pre-configured rapid prototyping module that will allow systems integrators, VARs, technology vendors, and companies to build their own sensor prototypes for IIoT networks for fast, simple, and flexible testing and deployment.
MYTHINGS was created to facilitate full-scale LPWAN deployments in demanding industrial and commercial environments. Because the MIOTY protocol is at the core of MYTHINGS, LPWAN networks can be implemented for long-range communication and with the longest battery life and highest interference immunity of any wireless connectivity solution on the market today.
In 2019, BehrTech will release a lineup of products under the MYTHINGS brand. The first product is the MYTHINGS Module, a pre-configured rapid prototyping module running the MYTHINGS Library – a small footprint and power-optimized source code for IoT end nodes featuring MIOTY software. Addressing the need for reliable and cost-effective sensor connectivity, the MYTHINGS Module will enable systems integrators, VARs, technology vendors, and companies in a wide array of industries to build their own sensor prototypes for IIoT networks, enabling fast, simple, and flexible testing and deployment.
“Our goal with the MYTHINGS platform is to deliver a highly integrable and interoperable suite of software-driven IIoT connectivity products, something that does not exist on the market today,” says Wolfgang Thieme, Chief Product Officer at BehrTech. “We’re putting control in the hands of our customers and partners. Your devices, your network, your data. Between deployment flexibility, incomparable Total Cost Ownership, and its unique communication robustness, MYTHINGS is the connectivity solution needed to bring the Industrial Internet of Things online, ensuring that real business value can be derived from sensor data.”
The MYTHINGS Module complies with the mikroBUS add-on board open standard design. By specifying the physical layout of microcontrollers or microprocessors (mainboards) and compatible integrated circuits and modules (add-on boards), the mikroBUS standard enables easy, flexible hardware design and development with a growing ecosystem of standardized development and add-on boards. Leveraging a portfolio of more than 600 available mikroBUS click boards, businesses can mix and match the MYTHINGS Module with relevant sensors, interfaces, displays, amplifiers, and more to rapidly and cost-effectively build a customized end-node for a variety of use cases and deployments.
One of the biggest challenges to deploying IoT and IIoT solution is complexity and time to ROI. BehrTech has focused on the pain points of IIoT implementation and worked to simplify the problem so companies can more rapidly derive the benefits of IoT deployment in their factories and other applications.
