Many businesses are intimidated by the perceived complexities of the “Internet of Things” / IoT. Integrators of ALTA wireless sensors learn quickly that many of the barriers that have hindered IoT integration in the past have been overcome by the long range capabilities of the ALTA Wireless IoT Sensors Platform. RF performance is all about “link budget”. Link budget is measured decibels and factors all the gains and losses between wireless system transmitters and receivers. The formula includes variables such as power output, receiver sensitivity, antenna gain, interference (both radio and physical) and cables. Monnit has fine-tuned its radio technology to yield phenomenal range from minimal power output and consequently draw minimal power from batteries. Rock solid and groundbreaking science is embedded in each sensor.

When building a wireless sensor system – ultra long wireless range might be the standout feature of the ALTA Wireless IoT Platform – then long battery-life and bank-grade security round off the trifecta. When factoring these three features – Monnit’s ALTA Wireless IoT Platform has no peers – not even close. No where else in the world exists a wireless sensor that yields 1000`+ wireless range, 10-year battery life and 256 EDCH / 128 AES security. There are other features of course (On-board Data Memory, Over-the-Air Updates, FCC/CE Certifications, No Monthly Fees, etc.); but range, battery life and security are the signatures that set ALTA apart from any other solution.
