Chicago, IL Coronis Systems , a developer of ultra-low-power (ULP) and long-range wireless solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with wireless sensor networks (WSN) integrator, Mesh Systems , headquartered in Appleton, WI. By integrating Coronis’ off-the-shelf sensors and modules such as Waveflow, Wavesense, Wavetherm, and Wavenis-enabled OEM cards, Mesh Systems’ clients are able to quickly deploy a network and begin receiving data from remote assets across wireless local and wide area networks via the company’s MeshVista Portal for managing and monitoring energy, environment, and waste/wastewater processes.

Seeing that WSNs are being deployed in real-world applications across a wide variety of industries. Mesh Systems began looking for a local area radio frequency technology that could provide the long-range and low-power characteristics needed for its high volume, vertical applications. According to Coronis, Mesh Systems identified its Wavenis Technology as the ideal wireless solution to meet all its requirements based on a comprehensive, technical, and competitive analysis. Previously, the two companies had worked together on various projects and saw the advantage in formalizing a strategic relationship.

Mesh Systems now has access to Coronis’ full range of products and technology to deploy simpler, more reliable and cost efficient installations for Wavenis-enabled networks. Add to that Wavenis’ wide communications range and its ability to deploy in star, mesh, or hybrid wireless sensor network architectures, Mesh Systems is able to offer powerful turnkey solutions. Wavenis’ ultra-low-power consumption can provide years of battery life, thus reducing operating and long term maintenance costs. Collectively, these advantages allow Mesh Systems to develop and deploy complete end-to-end solutions for their clients in the energy, water treatment and specialty environmental markets.

“Field proven, cost-effective, and available now, Wavenis technology is an ideal complement to our MeshVista platform,” says Richard Baxter, Mesh Systems president and CEO. “Wavenis combines long-range communications and excellent interference immunity with ultra-low-power consumption and flexible network topology options. In addition, Coronis made it easy for us to adopt Wavenis technology by providing ready-to-install sensors, gateways, OEM cards, modules, and software, as well as technology licensing options for large-volume applications to our clients. By using Wavenis, we are able to deliver wireless sensor network solutions that work. I think the fact that Coronis has over one million Wavenis-enabled units deployed worldwide speaks not only to the technology’s reliability, but also its availability now.”

“We are very happy to be working with a partner the caliber of Mesh Systems,” says Laurent Maleysson, Coronis Systems chief technology officer (CTO). “With Wavenis built into the backbone of [its] advanced infrastructure, I cannot think of a better environment to prove the advantages of our technology for wireless networks in such a competitive landscape. Employing Wavenis highly resistant two-way communication functionality will also give Mesh Systems the added flexibility of extending the range and effectiveness of other wireless technologies [it] might deploy such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. We feel that Wavenis can help manage the three ingredients that you find in any network deployment that makes or breaks a project: cost, development time, and reliability.”
