O2 Czech Republic wrote about us: "IQRF zones will cover the Czech Republic for the Internet of Things"

06 June 2016

IQRF Conference in Prague was the venue for a major shift in the implementation of smart cities, buildings and IoT. MICRORISC introduced a new project called IQRF.zones which will cover the households, cities and even shopping centers or companies in the Czech Republic and other countries with a wireless signal. There were more than a hundred participants presenting their solutions in the area of wireless communication at the IQRF Conference 2016. In addition, O2, Microsoft, IBM or Intel introduced their own visions of IoT.

IQRF.zones are developed as an open platform thanks to that everyone can choose his end device, gateway, cloud and user applications that suits him best. It is a flexible ecosystem based on the wireless IQRF technology which will dynamically develop according to market needs. Any product with this technology will wirelessly connect to the Internet, communicate and be easily usable thanks to zones from measuring to full automation. "IQRF.zones combine robustness and reliability of the IQMESH networks with simplicity and quick management of the star type network. All the current manufacturers using the IQRF will be able to use the new technology without any major modifications. New communication platform will bring especially the simplicity to end users," adds Vladimír Šulc, CEO of MICRORISC.

Companies O2 and O2 IT Services follow with their own solutions in the area of Smart Homes and Smart Cities. There are a guarantee of high quality services and reliable coverage on a nationwide scale. "We see a huge opportunity in this together with other members of the IQRF Alliance. We want to bring simple, fast and flexible solution to our customers which helps them with building a smart home," said Jindřich Fremuth, Director of Consumer Division. "Everything is closely connected to industry and smart cities, which need to share various types of data easily," added Václav Provazník, CEO of Comercial division in O2 IT Services. Cites in a concept of OpenData will be able to communicate about traffic, parking situation or for example about quality of air.

Microsoft presented quick connection of a wireless sensor to an Azure cloud solution at the conference. IBM showed a live data stream of air monitoring from a drone to a Bluemix cloud. Intel together with AAEON demonstrate a connection to the IQRF network from their own Internet gateway. tcp cloud added own solution based on the open technologies OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker and OpenContrail. Other companies and universities from the USA to India presented own projects and new products which can be connected through the

"Imagine that you want to make your household smart on your own. Cheaply, quickly and easily. You will buy wirelessly controlled light and a switch which you connect and control from your cell phone. That is unfortunately not how it is working. But thanks to the cooperation of the IQRF Alliance members in the project it becomes reality. Air pollution, water quality, floods, traffic in cities, manufacture automation, interiors of buildings, intelligent households, comfort of your life – these are all the areas which can be improved with the use of technologies and we want to contribute to that," said Šimon Chudoba, CEO of the IQRF Alliance, which organized the conference.

07 April 2016

Representatives of Czech companies involved in Cloud Computing and wireless sensor networking will give a keynote speech at OpenStack Summit in Austin, 25th to 29th April 2016. The hi-tech companies tcp cloud, MICRORISC and Protronix associated in the IQRF Alliance will collect data from CO2 sensors located around the whole venue and provide them for a summit hackathon.

Leading Cloud architects and engineers from around the world will meet at OpenStack Summit to share their knowledge and experience. The summit is organized by the OpenStack Foundation around the world twice a year. This large and growing community includes leading IT companies such as IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu, AT&T, Huawei or Yahoo.

Look forward to live Youtube video stream of the keynote where tcp cloud experts will process data acquired from Protronix CO2 sensors allocated around the facility and connected in just one big IQRF wireless mesh network (881,400 square feet). Collected data will be shared with summit participants and used as a database for one of event hackathons. The whole project is based on the OpenStack cloud platform provided by the tcp cloud. The IQRF technology is provided by the Czech company MICRORISC.

"This case study demonstrates the power of connection of a cloud solution and the IQRF wireless technology. Within few weeks you can prepare a project for collection, processing, analysis and distribution of almost any kind of data in a very large facility such as Austin Convention Center without kilometers of cables and complicated deployment," said Simon Chudoba, CEO of the IQRF Alliance.

Complex solutions in the field of IoT – Smart City will be presented by Cloud architects from the tcp cloud together with Simon Chudoba, CEO of the IQRF Alliance. tcp cloud team will collect, process, visualize and provide the data from twenty CO2 sensors in the congress center building to other participants during the following Hackathon.

"Together with the IQRF Alliance we connected two different worlds and created globally unique IoT platform which can be used for Smart Cities or Industry 4.0 concept," adds Adam Skotnicky, CEO of the tcp cloud.
