Tieto Empathic Building relies on Wirepas Mesh connectivity

05 March 2018

Tieto has licensed Wirepas Mesh for Empathic Building service. Tieto Empathic Building is using Nordic Semiconductor nRF52 radio hardware with Wirepas Mesh network in customer buildings.

Tieto Empathic Building service is solving end-user problems in modern working and learning environments like activity-based offices. Relevant data in right location drops unwanted administration and increases user wellbeing and performance. Wirepas Mesh is a de-centralized radio communications protocol for large scale Industrial IoT applications such as smart metering, lighting, asset tracking, logistics and environmental sensoring. It enables limitless scale, ultra-low power operations, high reliability, and it is easy to deploy.

”Real-time reliable data without annoying delays is needed to cater superb user experience. We wanted to introduce service to our customers that does not need any ICT competence. Our solution is as easy to implement as a microwave oven”, says Tomi Teikko, Head of Tieto Empathic Building

Wirepas matches well to Empathic Building’s application requirements. It is scalable, reliable, easy to deploy and efficient in terms of total cost of ownership. It is also radio spectrum friendly, which is of great importance in a building and office environment where several networks need to co-exist without interference.

“The partnership with Tieto is a great proof-case of the versatility of Wirepas Mesh. The fact that we are able to do trade-offs between different network parameters, even run-time, guarantees that we can ensure a fit-for-purpose connectivity for different use cases and applications. We are proud that Tieto has chosen our technology for their new service platform”, Wirepas CEO Teppo Hemiä says.
