Periodic data from the measuring device is transported wirelessly to provide remote, real-time communication.
Typically, EnLive will provide appropriate network connectivity for transporting the data.
Depending on requirements, the network could be LoRaWAN, cellular (NB-IOT or LTE-M), or satellite.
LoRaWAN is the recommended option as it provides long distance communication while requiring low operating power. Based on KotahiNet’s LoRaWAN node, all global LoRaWAN frequency bands are available.
A direct to satellite option is also being developed. It will allow the river water quality monitoring device to be installed anywhere in the world, no matter the location, and independent of local network providers.
