Supported Networks

Networks
for IoT

At Pycom we strive to enable as many developers, enterprise customers and educational facilities to build things that will work for almost any use case. This is why we offer a combination multiple networks for you to choose from when building your next project. The networks we offer include:

WIFI

WiFi is the world’s most-used local-area wireless networking technology. Over half of internet users connect via WiFi, and there are more WiFi-enabled devices than there are humans. It’s a great solution for all manner of IoT projects, from large scale implementation to hobbyist home applications.

COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS

BLE – Bluetooth Low Energy and BLE Mesh

Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances, from fixed and mobile devices to building personal area networks (PANs). It is one of the most used wireless data exchange networks in the world and is an expected feature of devices.

COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS

LoRa(WAN) – LoRa, LongFi, LoRa Mesh

LoRa is a Low Power Wide Area Network, a great network to use for your IoT projects. It has gateways far and wide and the LoRa Alliance, who created and maintain the network, has thriving community of enthusiasts. LoRa is used by lots of platforms. LoRa uses license-free sub Gigahertz radio frequency bands like 169 MHz, 433 MHz, 868 MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (North America). Read more here.

LoRa application and network server services are available through the Pycom Device Cloud.

Pycom offers a LoRa Mesh is called Pymesh and this is available on all LoRa enabled hardware platforms as well as through our and our partner Device Cloud platforms. There are many companies offering Private shared or Public LoRa networks. Here are a few:

  • Helium Network works on LongFi
  • TTN Network is a global collaborative Internet of Things ecosystem that works on LoRaWAN
  • Senet

Cellular Cat-NB1 (NB-IoT) and Cat M1

Long-Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) is commonly referred to as Cellular (in the world of IoT). It specifically refers to LTE CT-M1, which works by using the existing LTE infrastructure to send out lower frequency waves. NB-IoT stands for Narrow Band Internet of Things, which uses low-frequency channels that went unused as they could only send small amounts of data. It can be deployed as an addition of new software to the existing LTE infrastructure.

Cellular network SIMs

Our cellular enabled devices support cellular network SIMs from a multitude of vendors. A few have already been integrated on our device cloud and are accessible from our Webshop.
