Jorjin WS2119-A0 Sigfox & BLE combo module

Jorjin WS2119-A0 Sigfox & BLE combo module | The French (wireless) Connection | Scoop.it

The WS2119-A0 is a sub-1GHz with PA and Bluetooth® low energy ultralow power wireless MCU module. This module is built-in STM S2-LP and BlueNRG-1 chip.


The module is a cost-effective, high performance, ultra-low power, sub-1GHz and Bluetooth® low energy RF devices. Very low active RF and MCU current and low-power mode current consumption provide excellent battery lifetime and allow for operation on small coin cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.

Nestor Ayuso's insight:
First module based on STM S2-LP?

STM S2-LP outperforms the rest of the transceivers in TX power consumption, only 20.6mA @ +14dBm and 27mA @ +16dBm.

Cellnex Telecom signs an agreement with HELIOT, to roll out the Sigfox network in Switzerland

Cellnex Switzerland and HELIOT, the operator for the Sigfox technology in Switzerland, will roll out the first global IoT (Internet of Things) network based on ultra-narrow band (UNB) modulation in Switzerland using more than 350 sites. 

Cellnex has been operating in Switzerland since August 2017 when it acquired the company Swiss Towers AG and integrated the 2,839 sites that cover the entire Swiss territory into its portfolio of European telecommunications infrastructures. 

The Swiss IoT network will be the second rolled out by Cellnex in Europe in cooperation with Sigfox. In 2015 Cellnex rolled out the first IoT network in Spain, to which more than 1 million devices are connected daily.

Just another mPCIe LoRa Gateway Card

Just another mPCIe LoRa Gateway Card | The French (wireless) Connection | Scoop.it

OccamSmart showcases its new line of smart solutions for LPWANs at the 2018 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, including world’s first available mPCIe LoRa Smart Gateway Card.

Nestor Ayuso's insight:
Not the first one, not the last one, just another

The lora gateway library (libloragw) runs in the MCU integrated in the mPCIe card, ofloading this task from the host. This approach is the same as the Semtech picoGW reference design, but both UART protocols are different.

Weightless-P public specification

Weightless-P public specification | The French (wireless) Connection | Scoop.it

The original Weightless specification was based on white-spaces and renamed to Weightless-W once it was deprecated. 


Then a new specification was released based on nWave called Weightless-N, also deprecated.


Then the last specification was released based on Platanus called Weightless-P, now renamed to Weightless.


As almost nobody use Weightless, the SIG decided to make the Weightless-P specification public and available to anyone who wants to give the email address, not only members.


Some key board members of the Weightless SIG departed, the rest of the board members hold while there are funds from the membership fees.


I am not claiming the Weightless-P specification is bad, but I predict Weightless will never success as a widely used standard.

International LoRaWAN roaming trial success

International LoRaWAN roaming trial success | The French (wireless) Connection | Scoop.it

Orange, KPN and IoT connectivity platform supplier Actility today reveal the first successful field test of actual roaming between nationwide public IoT networks, implementing the latest LoRa Alliance™ specifications. Roaming is the ability for an IoT device to seamlessly connect to different LoRaWAN networks to transmit its data. This successful implementation of roaming protocols in the field opens up the possibility of connecting sensors or trackers that move between countries. It also simplifies the implementation of international business applications – by removing the need to both integrate several IoT platforms and contract with multiple LoRaWAN operators – thereby reducing time to market for customers.
