Wirepas and Levaux partner to enable SenseAgent, the Smart Building Platform, with intelligent wireless mesh connectivity
Levaux (AU) has licensed Wirepas Connectivity to enable it’s smart building platform, SenseAgent with industrial-grade wireless mesh networking. Traditional buildings use disparate wired systems for building services. Levaux has built a platform using massively scalable asynchronous communication framework to enable rapid deployment of low latency, highly secure endpoints to interface to building services. The sensor endpoints provide a new approach to creating smarter buildings, simultaneously deploying wireless mesh network infrastructure to future proof buildings together with advanced sensor endpoints with control capability. The sensors use machine learning to autonomously control the building to optimize the operational savings.
“We are proud of partnership with Levaux in this extremely exciting application area. What is exceptional in this partnership, is that it took only two months for Levaux to integrate Wirepas Connectivity as a part of their products and platform. This is of course a sign of Levaux’s drive and competencies, but at the same time it is a proof of how easy Wirepas Connectivity is to deploy”, Wirepas CEO, Teppo Hemiä says.
Wirepas Connectivity is a wireless, low-power IoT network protocol that can be used to connect, locate and identify lights, sensors, beacons, assets, machines and meters in cities, buildings, industry, logistics and energy – with unprecedented scale, density, flexibility and reliability. It can be used on any radio hardware and on any frequency band. In SenseAgent the sensors are equipped with standard Bluetooth radio, but running on Wirepas Connectivity protocol.
“The partnership with Wirepas has been pivotal to our success. This is the best routed mesh technology available and the simplicity with which we have implemented the Wirepas stack within our product in only a few months is a testament to the technical excellence and level of support we have received from Wirepas. It has enabled us to quadruple our effective communication bandwidth and shorten our time to market, all this with off the shelf radio hardware.” Levaux CEO, Dr. Simon Benson says.

Wirepas is focused on providing the most reliable, optimized, scalable and easy-to-use device connectivity for its customers. Wirepas Connectivity is a Wide Area Mesh protocol that can be used in any device, with any radio chip and on any radio band. With Wirepas Connectivity there is no need for traditional repeaters because every wireless device is a smart router of the network. The connected devices form the network— easy as that. Wirepas has its headquarters in Tampere, Finland, and offices in Australia, France, Germany, South Korea, the UK and the United States. Things connected—Naturally
Levaux created SenseAgent as a smart building platform to give owners and occupiers of buildings fine-grained insights and more control over their environment. While at the same time bringing lower costs. Traditional buildings use disparate wired systems for building services. Levaux built a platform using massively scalable IoT asynchronous communication framework to enable rapid deployment of low latency, highly secure endpoints to interface to building services. Not only does this mean lower capital outlay, it also means lower operational costs. SenseAgent sensors use machine learning to automatically control the building to optimize the operational savings and create intelligent environments.
