It seems like a new wireless standard which is ambitiously named „The WiFi of IIOT“ has just been published. It’s been designed at the Fraunhofer Institute, licensed by Behr Technologies and it’s called MIOTY. This LPWAN network has quite similar features to SigFox specs with the similar range of up to 15 km, 407 bps data rate, battery duration of up to 20 years and possibility to transmit up to 1.5 million messages per day. The benefits of the new standard would be better scalability than LoRa networks and lower cost and better energy efficiency than cellular IoT networks. Since it’s backed by big players in the industry there is probably something about this new standard, however it’s hard to see the real differentiators from LoRa, SigFox or wireless HART protocols.
