Industry overview

Over the past several years, wireless networking technology has made significant advances, not only in terms of consumer and business adoption, but also with respect to the sheer diversity of devices that can now be connected in PAN, LAN, and WAN scenarios (personal-, local-, and wide-area networks). Bluetooth and Wi-Fi have become household names, and cellular network usage and the Internet have reached universal proportions.

However, none of these technologies, including recent Zigbee developments, adequately addresses the market for applications that require long-range wireless connections even for devices installed in very hard-to-reach places. With low volumes of data traffic, but extremely low power resources - often requiring battery-powered operation of several years without human intervention - these products also are subject to very tight integration and cost constraints.

Such is the case for sensor monitoring and data collection processes in automatic meter reading (AMR) and telemetry solutions, as well as home comfort, building and industrial automation, home healthcare, and security applications. With nearly identical technical requirements (range, battery life, reliability, low cost), the market for smart/wearable objects, personal tagging, and tracking/localization applications continues to gain momentum with UHF RFID technologies such as Wavenis.

Products and solutions

Coronis technologies are designed to provide wireless network connectivity for devices with exceptionally low power requirements and long-range coverage constraints, both indoors and out. As an ideal complementary technology to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the company's highly innovative Wavenis technology offers a sought-after balance of power consumption, range, reliability, and resistance to physical and electrical interference. Wavenis-powered devices are often integrated into systems with fixed network and mobile usage models, alongside other standard technologies such as cellular and Internet services.
