1. IP500 Articles

As following, please find the links to the newest articles, which our IP500 Members and Partners have placed in Europe’s most recognized “Elektronik Magazine”. This article addresses the interoperability of IoT devices for security / safety and comfort application in the same IoT wireless network / infrastructure in a commercial building. 

„IoT Wireless Platform for Commercial Buildings“
„IoT Funk-Plattform für kommerzielle Gebäude“

The pervious article which were placed in January 2020 explained the basis of the IP500 Standard which has received the pre-conformity of the IP500 wireless network according to the European norm (EN 501.31-53). 

„Die IoT-Revolution für kommerzielle Gebäude“:
„The IoT Revolution for commercial Buildings“

The next and coming IP500 article will be focused on the IP500 redundant infrastructure. 

2. IP500 / 5G project, Miele & consortium

The IP500 and its IP500 partner Sensfix are positioned in the exciting IoT connected factory project. This project represents key industry players (like Miele), who are driving IoT connected solutions into their factories (incl. IP500 OEM solutions) in various factory automation / logistical processes and security applications (like access control) as well as energy applications (HVAC, water and air quality). The opportunity has been given to the IP500 Alliance to deliver selected IP500 OEM solutions in this great project. We already have included 5 IP500 OEMs focused on lighting, sensing and access control.  

All the IP500 Members and Partners are invited to become part of this exciting project, which has the goal to install their IP500 connected solution in all the factories of the project consortium (incl. ABB, ERICSSON ..). 

3. IP500 / DALI converter is available

The IP500 Alliance is pleased to announce the availability of an IP500 / DALI converter for lighting applications. This converter is a small products (including the IP500 / CNX200) and can be fit in most of the “lighting luminar”. It allows the connect existing lighting solutions with DALI protocol to the IP500 Network. First SmartOffice project have started to connect their DALI managed lighting systems into the IP500 Network. 

4. IP500 Compression

The IP500 has asked independent test labs and OEMs to run tests and compare the IP500 Standard with other IoT solutions. The focus was on the most important features and performance parameters of a  wireless IoT network for commercial building. Two independent parties (test labs / IP500 OEMs) have set-up a full IP500 network in a real environment, which was a commercial building. The results have been qualitied and quantified in a test report, which will be included in a IP500 White Paper. This IP500 White Paper will be available in the IP500 Member Area.  
Following please find a summary of main topics in compression with well-known IoT standards, and as complementary with 5G.
