On November 16, 2022, the 19th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications will begin in Munich, in parallel with Electronica. For Helmut Adamski, CEO and Chairman of the IP500 Alliance, these are two ideal platforms at the same time, in one place.

?   How important are Electronica 2022 and Wireless Congress 2022 ffor the IP500 Alliance and its members?

!   Helmut Adamski: For the IP500 Alliance, the Wireless Congress and Electronica offer an ideal communication platform that allows us to present and discuss the key points and position of the IP500 wireless standard in exchange with the auditorium. The proximity to Electronica gives our members and partners the opportunity to directly coordinate with component manufacturers in the integration of the IP500 standard into their solutions. In addition, the Wireless Congress gives Electronica visitors the opportunity to experience the latest trends and standards in the IoT / wireless environment.

?   How has the wireless market changed since the last Electronica? What impact have the current crises had?

!   Adamski: The wireless market has changed a lot, especially in the last twelve months, with end users realizing the advantages and disadvantages of the corresponding solutions in testing or in the field. As a result, some wireless solutions have become more firmly established in a particular application, while others have had to withdraw from applications or are no longer relevant at all. It is also clear that proprietary wireless solutions have not caught on. 

Just last year, the IP500 Alliance was able to clear the last hurdles to establish the entire IP500 Wireless IoT ECO system for commercial and industrial buildings, including redundancy of the IP500 infrastructure and conformity with security guidelines such as VdS. Thus, the IP500 standard is able to set a de-facto wireless standard for this area. It is now being adopted by many manufacturers and implemented in solutions.

The impact of the pandemic and the war cannot be ignored in supply chain issues. At the same time, the need for retrofit solutions for climate change and CO2 footprint has increased. As a result, the IoT wireless bandwagon has also picked up steam for the IP500 Alliance, as the breakthrough performance of the IP500 network - latency, range, robustness and security - makes it a more secure IoT wireless platform for commercial buildings.

?   What challenges are currently faced by companies using wireless technologies and the members of the IP500 Alliance?

!   Adamski: Obviously, these are component supply issues when it comes to delivering IP500 products and solutions. In addition, the challenge is getting end users in commercial buildings to understand that some IoT wireless technologies are not suitable for large buildings and harsh industrial environments or real-time communication between sensors and actuators.

Some users are also seduced by the promises of Smart Home solutions and then try to install these Smart-Home wireless standards effectively and safely in large buildings.

So our challenge is to inform users about such dangers and at the same time communicate the performance of the IP500 ECO System for commercial and industrial properties in a timely manner. This is where the Wireless Congress can make a big contribution.

?   What are the latest innovations of the IP500 Alliance and its members?

!   Adamski: These are clearly the achievement of EN and VdS security guidelines for the intrusion area and currently this fall also for the fire area. It also introduced the first IoT wireless infrastructure based on IP500 with full redundancy and end-to-end encryption, with dynamic key management.

Ultimately, IP500 Alliance partners, such as Microchip and CoreNetiX, and OEMs, such as Microsens, Kingspan and Trilux, unveiled a complete IP500 ECO system at the Light-Building show, revolutionizing all previous IoT wireless network performance metrics. This includes a latency of about 20 ms at a range of 150 m and a data rate of 100 / 250 kbps – and that in an exhibition hall with over 150 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other sources of interference. 

Thus, the IP500 wireless IoT standard is the only standard that meets the security requirements and at the same time offers the performance to network all sensor and actuator applications with one and the same infrastructure.

?   What can Electronica visitors and congress participants expect this year?

!   Adamski: From the point of view of the IP500 Alliance, visitors can now experience the revolution in the IoT market for real: an IoT wireless platform that can address all applications and solutions, including security-relevant points that until now could not be implemented with wireless technology in commercial and industrial environments and buildings.

IP500 can also address solutions relevant to climate change and carbon footprint requirements. Attendees of Wireless Congress 2022 can experience this and learn how to implement these solutions in commercial and industrial buildings in a timely manner – mind you, based on efficient, secure and robust wireless IoT networking of all sensors and actuators.

Simply put, they will witness the beginning of the IoT revolution for the coming decade.

?   Thank you for the interview.
