Lantern Mesh technology offers a network for wireless IoT connected devices. The self-healing standalone networks are created with rugged equipment certified as IP66 or IECEx/ATEX. These networks require little maintenance and can be accessed remotely, enabling operation across sites including harsh and hazardous areas. With this technology, enterprises can run best- in-class, highly scalable mesh protocols on competitively priced hardware designed for harsh and hazardous environments.

As a use case of the mesh networking technology, an application on Kubernetes and a proprietary tracking sensor, enable indoor and outdoor tracking of assets in air gapped or harsh and hazardous areas.

Currently, asset tracking on most sites remains a surprisingly limited or manual exercise. Asset safety and productivity is of utmost importance in any environment but is often critical in harsh and hazardous areas. These environments include added dangers and unpredictable conditions, which can put safety in jeopardy in emergency situations, further exacerbated in remote locations with low connectivity and inaccessibility.

Solutions in harsh and hazardous areas require rugged equipment and applications with robust materials and intelligent design features made to withstand the tough conditions. Kubernetes enables continuous delivery of new features to adapt the tracking solution to new requirements easily.

Rising demand for wireless sensors across different sectors is driving market growth for mesh networking. The technology addresses the enterprise LPWAN market, which is forecasted to be $65B by 2025 [source]. Importantly, the technology addresses solutions in verticals across harsh and hazardous markets.

Rising demand for safety and productivity is driving growth in asset tracking. The tracking solution addresses the enterprise real-time location systems market, which is growing annually at 30% and is forecasted to be $18B by 2025. Importantly, the technology addresses tracking in verticals across harsh and hazardous markets.

Mesh Networking Applications

The mesh networking technology is designed to support solutions that require reliable wireless data gathering and control across 24/7/365 day operations in harsh or hazardous environments that include flammable atmospheres, gases, vapors, and dust.

These solutions use wireless sensors that:

  • are deployed at scale
  • require a level of reliability not found in competing wireless protocols
  • have bandwidth requirements or reporting intervals comparatively higher than what LoRaWAN allows
  • are used in harsh or hazardous environments

Examples of supported sensors:

  • wireless asset tracking tags
  • GNSS denied localization
  • gas detection
  • vibration measurement
  • images
  • environmental sensors – like air quality or temperature.

Tracking Applications

The tracking solution showcases the use of the mesh networking and is focused on features that enhance safety and productivity at harsh and hazardous sites.

Examples of tracking uses include:

  • Enhanced worker safety in environments with extreme and challenging physical conditions
  • Improved worker productivity through the removal of inefficient manual muster exercises
  • Real-time visibility of on-site personnel and infrastructure through IoT connected devices
  • Self-healing stand-alone networks that require little maintenance in extreme conditions

Lantern Mesh products are designed to operate as a network or as stand-alone components for clients who demand reliability in harsh and hazardous working conditions.

The hardware has already passed product certification with different environmental and regulatory options including IP66 or IECEx/ATEX certifications. The hardware and software are proprietary, ownership of the IP will be transferred with the technology.

Lantern Mesh

The mesh networking hardware comprises wireless mesh networking routers and a gateway peripheral card together with related IP. The mesh network is compatible with multiple 802.15.4 based LPWAN technologies and is designed for rugged environments that require IP66 rating or IECEx / ATEX ratings. The tracking solution runs on a best in class decentralized mesh networking protocol that can support an unlimited number of nodes in a single network.
