Christmas gift: new version of MiraOS

As a small christmas gift to our customers, we today released an updated version of MiraOS. The new version now provides even better performance and reliability in highly congested radio environments, improved support for firmware updates, and added peripheral device support.

MiraOS has since its release in the beginning of 2016 set the benchmark for reliabilty in large scale IoT and M2M networks through it’s use of our patented cognitive coexistence technology and is already deployed in large scale mission critical control systems within building automation through Swegon’s New WISE system that was lauched earlier this year and has been rolled out in networks containing several thousands of devices.

To obtain your copy of the updated version of MiraOS and the Mira SDK, please contact us at sales@lumenradio.com.

LumenRadio at Embedded Conference Scandinavia

Are you curious on how we can utilize one of our most important natural resource, the frequency spectrum? If you missed Niclas Norléns TEDx talk about frequency coexistence he will be at Embedded Conference Scandinavia tomorrow, November 22, 15:30 and do a talk on the open stage about the  frequency spectrum and the art of coexistence. Don´t miss it.

TEDx Göteborg

Have you ever been to a big concert, tempted to post a picture online or perhaps call a friend, only to end up experiencing the lack of connectivity on your cell phone? Communication between wireless electronics is dependent on frequencies – a finite natural resource – and thus something we cannot take for granted. Our co-founder Niclas Norlén is a restless and energetic person who describes himself as a frequency nerd dedicated to making things work. In an era where an increasingly large amount of home electronics and physical devices are becoming wireless, a.k.a. ”The Internet of things” within the tech world, Niclas is eager to improve our society by using frequencies in a more efficient manner. In addition, there are both economical and environmental incentives in this: creating a world where resources can be utilized more effectively by enabling better communication between devices – and thereby reducing energy consumption.

Upon completing his engineering degree, Niclas began working at Ericsson and in 2002 he started his first company. Frequencies and communication are what he knows best and have been a recurring theme in his work. In 2008, he started LumenRadio and developed a method for enabling different electronic devices to coexist smoothly, using frequencies in a more effective and dynamic way. Ultimately, this can facilitate the transformation into so-called ”smart devices” where different wireless units can communicate with each other. His company has received global attention and collaborated with both Hollywood productions and the music and arts festival Coachella.

At TEDxGöteborg, Niclas wants us to get to know his best friends – frequencies – and how we can use them in the best way possible. Because the electromagnetic spectrum of frequencies we use for wireless communication is limited and can in fact run out, our ability to simultaneously connect units is also limited. In his talk, Niclas will give attention to the possibilities frequencies offer for the future, especially when utilizing his buddies in a better way. A larger number of units could then communicate and be more easily connected at the same time, whether it be wireless lighting, lampposts, refrigerators, ventilation systems – or perhaps a couple of thousand cell phones at a big concert.

Seminar about Wireless Connectivity and IoT

Welcome to a mini seminar about Wireless connectivity and IoT on June the 8th at our partner i3tex. Niclas Norlén from LumenRadio will during this session guide you through the landscape of IoT discussing real IoT examples and how those has led to new offerings and revenue streams. The very foundation of those examples relies in reliable and scalable wireless connectivity and Niclas will share LumenRadio’s many years of experience within the field.

”We are foreseeing a rapid growth in connected things and by 2020 it’s estimated that up to 100b things will be connected generating massive amounts of data. The vast majority of those things are expected to be connected wirelessly, connecting billions of sensors and actuators to the cloud. This wireless connectivity is the very foundation of IoT. Without wireless connectivity our modern life with mobile phones, TV and radio would simply not be possible. Importantly the opportunities from IoT estimated to be worth $1.7 trillion would not be possible to capture without wireless connectivity.”

The seminar is free of charge and takes place at i3tex office – Klippan 1A on Wednesday June the 8th 16:00 – 17:30. In  addition to LumenRadios talk about IoT and Wireless connectivity you can also listen to a speech about Innovation & Creativity or hear Fingerprint Cards talk about fingerprint sensors in cars.

Interested? Send an e-mail to marketing@lumenradio.com before Friday the 3rd of June. Seats are limited.
