To achieve this success, the MAC and PHY layers of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard have been enhanced together with additional Network and Application layers that results in superior wireless mesh networking efficiency which is vital for today’s M2M needs.
- More than 4 million packets of data can be transmitted by each network every hour
- Millions of End Nodes can function in a network, ensuring high M2M scalability,
- Multiple sub and mini-networks can co-exist within a Master Mesh Network, and can be either “fixed” or “mobile” networks,
- Multiple Network Managers can function simultaneously in any network, ensuring maximum redundancy and lowest latency,
- End Nodes determine an optimal data path and form a peer-to-peer ad-hoc network to hop (relay) packets of data from one another to a local Network Manager, ensuring the lowest latency.
- End Nodes can move freely between common Networks.
- End Nodes moving in unison with a local Network Manager, form an association.
- All End Nodes are FFD’s (Full Function Devices) & can function as a data logger, a backhaul router, or a Network Gateway.
- By default, the transmit mode of each End Node is off until authorization is received to transmit data, ensuring maximum power saving,
- AES 256 bit encryption ensures ultimate security and integrity of all data
- 24/7 monitoring of cargo within Intermodal Containers, ULD’s and pallets,
- Asset monitoring, especially freight in transit & construction equipment
- Monitoring of Cold Supply Chain shipments, especially for pharmaceuticals,
- Agriculture, for monitoring irrigation control, and crop management.
- Cross-border Customs Control to safely ease the processing of imports,
- Hazmat monitoring by shippers and governmental authorities,
- Medical Healthcare applications and monitoring,
- Military, monitoring of personnel as well as equipment,
- Oil Drilling, exploration and refineries needing wireless sensor and monitoring,
- SmartGrid monitoring and control, & AMI Smart meters for HAN & NAN
Myconi Technologies was founded in 2010 by Barry McCleland and Eugene van Beljon, who both immigrated to the USA from South Africa.
Since 1983, Barry has been a successful entrepreneur and has founded several businesses. In particular, he is still the owner of Gentech Engineering Plastics in Port Elizabeth, South Africa which designs and manufactures many products for the automotive, tire and aerospace industries.
Eugene is a Professional Electronic Design Engineer with more than 20 years of design and project management experience in the embedded and Internet world. He gained vast design and development experience in South Africa on wireless monitoring and tracking applications, particularly in the fire and security industry. Based on his extraordinary ability, Eugene obtained an EB1 based Green Card from the USA National Interest body for using embedded wired and wireless telemetry in the field of asset monitoring, tracking and security fields.
Together, Barry and Eugene have successfully developed a proprietary MANET based wireless technology that is used for transmitting sensor data for M2M applications via the IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
