New self-powered anemometer improves safety and reduces maintenance. Crane operators, outdoor venue employees, and anyone on an outdoor aerial work platform can now get wireless alerts to their smartphone when wind speeds around their equipment start to become unsafe allowing time to secure people and equipment before an accident.
This anemometer sends alerts up to 100 meters via Bluetooth and since it runs on wind-power, no one needs to climb up the equipment to change a battery every again!

A Larger More Connected IoT for Enterprise Users

http://goo.gl/w4zT5e

New LoRa module monitors devices while increasing the range of other smart monitors in the area

The RM1xx from Laird is able to send data up to 5 Kilometers (3.1 miles) over the LoRa protocol. For enterprise users like an electric company for example, this eliminates the need to drive a car to each house when it’s time to read the meter. Now through the RM1xx the meter can communicated with a LoRa gateway within 5 Kilometers and send the encrypted information securely back to headquarters. The savings in employee time, gasoline, and fleet management will be substantial.
In another application, like a smart city parking lot, the RM1xx can connect with BLE sensors at each parking space. Acting as a gateway it can then relay that information back to a central server. BLE sensors consumer very little energy, each parking space sensor can last for years on a single coin cell battery, saving the management company time and money replacing batteries.
“There are literally hundreds of applications where the RM1xx can supply real-time data from multiple BLE sources to a central server,” explains Senior Vice President of Laird’s Connectivity Solutions, Scott Lordo. “The versatility, longevity, and 5 Kilometer communication range make this ideal for Home Security, Agricultural, Industrial, and Utility applications where assets need to be monitored or tracked with long durations between communications.”
Integrated LoRa® + Bluetooth® Smart certified module from Laird enables low energy connectivity over miles, saving time and money while preventing downtime and improving safety

At the opening of our newest facility in Brazil today, CEO David Lockwood talked about how Laird's products are helping improve safety on the roadways while improving the driver and passenger experience.

He said, “with more than 250 million connected cars predicted to be on the road in the next five years, continuous and seamless connectivity for passengers, their vehicles and roadside infrastructure are becoming the expected standard. As the vehicle becomes the hub for communications and technology, South America represents a very exciting growth opportunity. This new plant enables us to continue to grow our global footprint, and bring our engineering and production closer to our South American customers in the automotive and industrial industries."

Laird’s products enable robust wireless vehicle connectivity into and within the vehicle including antenna and software solutions. The company’s new 3,400 square meter/26,500 square feet site represents a twenty million Real ($5 million) investment and allows for additional expansion. It’s located in Santo Antonio de Posse, Brazil, is about 70 miles north of São Paulo.

A new IoT development kit from Avnet Inc gives engineers and designers a unique testing solution for their new ideas.

http://goo.gl/vGfru6

Dubbed the "LSR Wireless Shield," Avnet calls it "a low-cost platform with customizable sensor/ peripheral capabilities." This expansion board allows new wireless products to be tested for functionality and reliability prior to final production.

This is just one example of how the recent acquisition of U.S. based L.S. Research, further expands the capabilities of Laird in the embedded wireless and certification fields. Laird is now a full service provider from design to production including certification and software services.
One of Laird's recent acquisitions, L.S. Research (LSR), is already capturing the attention of developers for the Internet of Things (IoT). Avnet Inc (NYSE: AVT) is leveraging two different LSR products as well as connectivity to Laird's TiWi Connect cloud platform to help engineers and designers prototype new IoT devices.  Dubbed the "LSR Wireless Shield," Avnet calls it "a low-cost platform with customizable sensor/ peripheral capabilities."

Next-Generation Wi-Fi® Intelligence Bolsters Reliability in Crowded Environments
New 50 Series of certified dual-band Wi-Fi® + Bluetooth® modules provide unmatched connectivity and performance in challenging wireless settings like medical and industrial facilities.
http://goo.gl/wu1wcl

Hospitals and industrial settings pose unique challenges for wireless connectivity. Large metal objects such as patient beds or industrial machinery, in addition to building elements like thick walls, lead shielding, and elevators can all degrade wireless performance. Commercial-grade wireless modules are simply insufficient for these harsh RF environments as they frequently lose network connectivity and risk the loss of a critical alert or data point.

“There is an increasing trend across many industries like Medical and Manufacturing where companies and end users want to track their assets and communicate with their equipment more than ever before. Depending on the setting, a loss of connectivity could result in costly production stops, employee safety concerns, or even the loss of critical information like a patient’s real-time vital signs,” explains Senior Vice President for Laird’s Connectivity Solutions, Scott Lordo. “In a hospital, for example, medical devices often need to stay with the patient as they move within the facility, the ability of a wireless module to quickly and dynamically change between dozens of network access points is a must.”

Laird engineers identified an innovative three pronged approach to solve these challenges. The result is the new Enterprise-grade, 50 Series Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth© combo modules that feature unmatched hardware, best-in-class software capabilities, and comprehensive support from design through deployment. These elements combine to create robust, secure, and reliable wireless solutions for even the most demanding applications.
