Extending the reach of the Sigfox network
Sensohive is a Danish company, created on November 2014 with more than 2 000 sensors deployed, on a mission to help B2B clients to automate documentation, increase insight and helps clients to understand how to create value from the gathered data. Sensohive helps clients such as restaurant chains with intelligent temperature documentation and alarms to full temperature documentation at precast element productions
Business Line: Agri-food
Type of building concerned: All
Objective: Sensohive offers a turn-key solution for food companies to optimize processes and reduce risks by implementing wireless sensors
The challenge is simple: how to ensure the good communication in all situations of wireless temperature sensors installed in refrigerators and freezers?
Indeed, cold rooms don’t have windows on the outside and are often positioned in indoor or even deep-indoor areas.
How in this context start a business and keep the promise to its customers when in some cases the application implicates locations where public networks cannot reach the products?
The adeunis Sigfox Repeater was really designed to answer such questions by just allowing to gain the few tens of meters to join the network coverage.
It is in this way that Sensohive has deployed on some critical premises the repeaters with the help of Adeunis and the collaboration of Sigfox. The effects of the repeaters were immediately felt by optimizing the reception performance of the Sigfox network on certain products. Below is an example of the reception of information before the installation of repeaters where the lines between two points represents a lack of measure…
…and after the installation of repeaters where the measures curves are continuous:
These 2 pictures show a huge improvement of the data retrieve with implementing the repeaters: 95% of received frames with the repeater instead of 24% without.
