今年早些时候,Amazon 向公众开放了 Amazon Sidewalk 网络。利用 LoRa 的远距离技术,Sidewalk 信号已经覆盖超过 90% 的美国人口,Amazon Sidewalk 提供 LoRa 作为其连接选项之一,供设备制造商将 LPWAN 物联网设备连接到 Sidewalk,从而实现具有远距离社区覆盖的新型设备。在 Sidewalk 无法覆盖的美国地区或美国境外,使用新 Oxit 模块的设备可以连接到任何兼容的 LoRaWAN® 网络,从而使 AWS 客户能够将其设备连接到任何兼容的适用于 LoRaWAN 的 AWS IoT Core 或集成公共网络。此外,LoRaWAN 技术不仅能让客户连接到其他公共 LoRaWAN 网络,还能利用 LoRaWAN 部署网关,在任何地方创建网络。

The challenge until now has been a single device that is configurable to connect to either the Amazon Sidewalk Network or a LoRaWAN network.  This is where the new Oxit OxTech Multi-Connectivity Module comes into play.  Based on Semtech’s SX1262 transceiver, the module supports a hybrid LoRaWAN and Amazon Sidewalk software stack on the device, which enables a single hardware SKU to be built which can connect to either Amazon Sidewalk or a LoRaWAN network.

Building a solution with the OxTech module is simplified through AWS IoT Core. AWS IoT Core has three features which enable customers to build end-to-end solutions:  AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN private networks, AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN public networks (supporting Everynet today) and AWS IoT Core for Sidewalk.  Once customers register their devices in AWS IoT Core, they can immediately get the device online if they are in range of a Sidewalk gateway, or reach any compatible LoRaWAN network, depending on how they configure the new module.  

Using a device based on the Oxit module with AWS IoT Core gives customers a single IoT cloud endpoint on one device with the ability to choose the best network based on coverage and use cases. AWS IoT Core lets you connect billions of IoT devices and route trillions of messages to Amazon Web Services (AWS) without managing infrastructure.  Being able to use both networks for applications gives diverse network options and reliable coverage, opening a breadth of opportunities for applications across the enterprise space, whether it is tracking the geolocation of assets across a warehouse, yard, or the country.  Building owners can now deploy IoT devices for leak detection, temperature, door open/close, and many others simply and reliably across their fleet knowing that connectivity is not a barrier to deployment.

Get started by procuring your OxTech Multi-Connectivity Module and connecting to AWS IoT Core today.
