Radiocrafts WIZE Module

All AllWize products have an embedded Radiocrafts WIZE module.

The Wize protocol is a long range, low power, and bi-directional radio communication that operates in the 169 MHz frequency. Wize was specifically designed to connect hard-to-reach objects and to ensure deployments on a territory-wide scale for the city’s uses, which require integration in a constrained environment: metering, public lighting, energy management of buildings and etc.

The Wize protocol provides:

  • Robust communication and wide area coverage using VHF frequency
  • Secure transfer of data in terms of privacy, data integrity, and authentication
  • A low power battery operated solution with a lifetime of more than 15 years
  • A proven solution based on the Wireless M-Bus standard
  • Firmware over-the-air s as an integral part of the protocol
  • Power efficient 2-way communication protocol for sensor reading and control

Additionally, on a territory-wide scale, deployment of the network is simple and fast because the technology requires little equipment (a communicating object and a concentrator). No repeater system, no pairing or complex programming sensors are required. Wize is an open standard meaning you won’t have to pay any expensive fees.

Wize has very good performance in range, penetration, and special redundancy, which have been confirmed in the framework of large-scale field deployments. Since the device has a battery lifetime of up to 20 years and a minimum amount of equipment needed in the system, this proves to be a low maintenance technology, helping you save money.
