Software and solutions company Silicon Labs is expanding its Internet of Things (IoT) portfolio with standards-based Wi-Sun technology to accelerate smart city application development.

 

Wi-Sun is certified by the Wi-Sun Alliance, a global industry association devoted to seamless LPWAN connectivity.

The Wi-Sun solution combines the industry EFR32 hardware platform, full-featured IPv6 mesh stack, and advanced development tools to enable secure wireless connectivity for a broad range of applications, from advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to street lighting networks, asset management and smart city sensors such as parking, air quality and waste management.

 

Wi-Sun builds upon standard Internet protocols and APIs, enabling developers to extend existing infrastructure platforms to add new or emerging applications serving a wide range of industrial and smart city workflows.

 

Built to scale due to its long-range capabilities, high-data throughput and IPv6 support, Wi-Sun aims to simplify wireless infrastructure for cities and expanding suburban areas.

“The Wi-Sun Fan specification, which defines everything needed to build secure, reliable, and resilient networks for large scale outdoor smart city applications”

“The Wi-Sun Alliance’s mission is to bring smart ubiquitous networks to service providers, utilities, municipalities and other smart city enterprises,” said Phil Beecher, president and CEO of the Wi-Sun Alliance. “We are pleased to see Silicon Labs and other alliance member companies innovating new solutions on the Wi-Sun Fan specification, which defines everything needed to build secure, reliable, and resilient networks for large scale outdoor smart city applications.”

 

Silicon Labs said it is working with customers to bring fully certified Wi-Sun applications to market and general availability of the solution is expected early summer 2021.

 

“As the leader in IoT wireless connectivity, Wi-Sun is the perfect addition to our portfolio,” said Matt Johnson, senior vice president and general manager of IoT products, Silicon Labs. “Wi-Sun is a comprehensive solution optimised for large scale, long-range LPWAN networks. Our Wi-Sun technology enables a non-proprietary approach to industrial and smart city applications, making deployments more scalable, resilient and safer.”
