AKCP Wireless Sensor Technology

Wireless Tunnel™ Radio

AKCP’s Wireless Sensor Technology provides long range, high penetraton, low power, wireless sensor communication. AKCP layered the Wireless Tunnel™ protocol on Semtechs LoRa™ chirp spread spectrum radio.

LoRaWAN™ Improvements by AKCP

LoRa™ s an energy efficient, long range and low cost bi-directional communications technology. Running on unlicensesd frequencies it is specifically tailored towards IoT use cases. LoRa™ has the ability to penetrate walls within buildings and has superior characteristics to standard Zigbee networks both in terms of interference and range. AKCP has built upon LoRa™ with both software and hardware enhancements to create a reliable technology called Wireless Tunnel™.

Technology

LoRaWAN™ is tuned for consumer networks with a large number of sensors communicating over long distance. AKCP’s proprietary Wireless Tunnel™ has tuned the hardware and software parameters for Industrial private, secure, networks. It provides a greater ability to penetrate walls. We rigorously test each radio for maximum legal allowable broadcast power and proper frequency. We have the most professional low power wireless system on the market.

What Makes AKCP Wireless Tunnel™ Different?

Message AknowledgmentMessage
Aknowledgment

A problem with wireless sensors is whether the messages are being received. AKCP has implemented aknowledgment of messages. If a sensors broadcast goes un-aknowledged the data is stored and re-broadcast at the next oppourtunity. This means if the gateway is down, or sensor is out of range, data continues to be logged and not lost.

Listen Before TalkListen Before
Talk

If two sensors broadcast at the same time packet collisions result in lost mesages.AKCP sensors listen before broadcasting. This ensures the airwaves are clear ,reduces packet collisions which reuslts in un-delivered messages. This improves reliability of the system and battery life of sensors.

Instant Threshold BroadcastingInstant Threshold
Broadcasting

AKCP Sensors have built in intelligence. Data is constantly analyzed to check the value does not exceed your defined threshold. Sensors immediately broadcast alarms with no need to wait for the next broadcast interval. This ensures you will never miss a mission critical sensor status change.

Bandwidth UtilizationBandwidth
Utilization

LoRa™ bandwidth restrictions make high density sensor installations problematic. AKCP have addressed this by shortening the message size. Less time is spent on air broadcasting. By halving the airtime, 2x the number of messages per hour can be boradcast, greatly increasing the number of sensors in high density installations.

Wireless Tunnel Gateways

Gateways collect data from Wireless Tunnel™ sensors within a 1km radius. Data is stored on the gateway, graphed and can be viewed via the internet through ethernet, WiFi or cellular data connections. Sensors that are out range of the gatewway can be collected through the Wireless Tunnel™ Repeater. For sites where more than one gateway is deployed AKCPro Server central monioring software consolidates all sensor data in one user interface.

Gateway options include:

  • L-DCIM with built in AKCPro Server
  • WiFi, Ethernet, Cellular Communications
  • GPS, geolocation of the gateway on AKCPro Server world map
  • Wireless Tunnel with connection to AKCPro Cloud Server
  • Wireless Tunnel with SNMP addressable sensors.
