Retrofit existing systems and expand functionalities
The LoRaWAN technology is perfectly suited for retrofitting, i.e. for subsequent integration into existing systems and buildings. Since no cables need to be laid for the sensors, they can be integrated quickly and easily, even in existing systems. Due to their compact design, they can also be placed in places that are difficult to access.
LoRaWAN simplifies retrofitting
and subsequent expansion
of existing systems.
In a retrofit, older machines, production plants or buildings are brought up to the current state of the art by the targeted retrofitting of modern components. Due to its flexibility and its various communication possibilities, VBASE allows the integration of systems of any degree of automation into the digital future. The use of LoRaWAN additionally fires this process and facilitates the placement of components.

Autonomous and maintenance-free sensors for several years
LoRaWAN is especially well suited for the transmission of small amounts of data (measured values, etc.); the protocol is only limitedly designed for the transmission of large amounts of data (e.g. images, video, audio). However, if LoRaWAN is used, for example, for the transmission of temperature readings or machine data, these can be sent over the LoRaWAN in the long term and almost maintenance-free.
Depending on the amount and frequency of the data to be transmitted, LoRaWAN sensors can be operated autonomously and maintenance-free for several years; equipped with a cable- or solar-powered energy supply, they can even be operated for an unlimited period.
