Wireless Network Consulting and Specialised IoT Hardware
Packets²Photons is a Western Australian startup that creates innovative IoT solutions. We blend coding, wireless networks and embedded systems expertise into custom made IoT devices powered by solar and batteries.
In addition to building IoT devices, we also configure and deploy wireless network infrastructure. LoRaWAN and the associated cloud infrastructure are specific areas of expertise. Complex WiFi deployments are another area of interest.
For those with existing IT teams, we can train existing staff in this emerging area as well as consult on all aspects of the IoT. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.
WHAT WE DO
We build IoT devices and sensors, specialising in collecting data and moving larger and more complex data than those provided by large commercial IoT sensor providers. Currently, we use microcontroller platforms such as Pycom as well as low power embedded computing such as the Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson.
WIRELESS NETWORK & GATEWAYS
We can design and deploy wireless network infrastructure, with an emphasis on emerging network infrastructure such as LoRaWAN and complex WiFi scenarios. We are experienced with Cisco LoRaWAN gateways as well as RAKWireless gateways.
We can securely deploy the cloud services required to manage LoRaWAN IoT networks. We have experience with Chirpstack as well as The Things Network. We can also handle data at the application layer and are experienced with protocols such as MQTT. We also have the ability to create dashboards to visualise your data, as well as integrate data feeds with public facing social media platforms.
We select and assemble widely available electronic components into IoT devices. Our expertise, which covers tech, coding, wireless networks and small renewable power systems allows us to deliver unique devices with some extraordinary capabilities.
Please contact us with your business problem or IoT opportunity to see if we can help.
Our aim is to provide class-leading remote communications devices. We have small solar-powered devices that are capable of taking images, computing some basic AI, and then reliably moving the image over many kilometres without some of the link engineering tradeoffs or expenses of 4G or satellite networks.
We are focused on trying to solve some of the unique problems in the Australian industries where the lack of communications infrastructure, coupled with extreme remoteness makes existing solutions infeasible.
