BehrTech Introduces MYTHINGSTM Brand and Product Family for Industrial IoT Wireless Connectivity
MYTHINGS™ is the only hardware agnostic, interoperable, and integrable wireless connectivity software platform for Industrial IoT (IIoT)
TORONTO – June 5, 2019 – BehrTech, a disruptive enabler of best-in-class wireless connectivity software for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced the launch of MYTHINGSTM, a wireless IIoT connectivity brand and product family that will simplify and accelerate the deployment of robust, scalable and integrable Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). MYTHINGS is the first software platform to implement MIOTY (TS UNB), the only LPWAN software to comply with the ETSI standard TS 103-357.
MYTHINGS was created to facilitate full-scale LPWAN deployments in demanding industrial and commercial environments. The MIOTY protocol is at the core of MYTHINGS, allowing LPWAN networks to be implemented for long range communication and with the longest battery life and highest interference immunity of any wireless connectivity solution on the market today.
In 2019, BehrTech will release a lineup of products under the MYTHINGS brand. The first product is the MYTHINGS Module, a pre-configured rapid prototyping module running the MYTHINGS Library – a small footprint and power-optimized source code for IoT end nodes featuring MIOTY software. Addressing the need for reliable and cost-effective sensor connectivity, the MYTHINGS Module will enable systems integrators, VARs, technology vendors and companies in a wide array of industries to build their own sensor prototypes for IIoT networks, enabling fast, simple and flexible testing and deployment.
“Our goal with the MYTHINGS platform is to deliver a highly integrable and interoperable suite of software-driven IIoT connectivity products, something that does not exist on the market today,” says Wolfgang Thieme, Chief Product Officer at BehrTech. “We’re putting control in the hands of our customers and partners. Your devices, your network, your data. Between deployment flexibility, incomparable Total Cost Ownership, and its unique communication robustness, MYTHINGS is the connectivity solution needed to bring the Industrial Internet of Things online, ensuring that real business value can be derived from sensor data.”
The MYTHINGS Module complies with the mikroBUSTM add-on board open standard design. By specifying the physical layout of microcontrollers or microprocessors (mainboards) and compatible integrated circuits and modules (add-on boards), the mikroBUS standard enables easy, flexible hardware design and development with a growing ecosystem of standardized development and add-on boards. Leveraging a portfolio of more than 600 available mikroBUS click boards, businesses can mix and match the MYTHINGS Module with relevant sensors, interfaces, displays, amplifiers and more to rapidly and cost-effectively build a customized end-node for a variety of use cases and deployments.
