Libelium has partnered with the best Cloud software solution providers to offer you all the necessary components to deploy Internet of Things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M) or Smart Cities projects with minimum time to market. Let us show you how:
1. What do you want to measure?
Waspmote Plug & Sense! integrates more than 70 different sensors, adapting to any scenario such as smart parking, air and noise pollution, irrigation control, vineyard monitoring, etc.
With its waterproof enclosure Waspmote Plug & Sense! is suitable for outdoor deployment and, thanks to solar panels and its extreme low power consumption, can work autonomously for years.
2. How do you want to connect to the Internet?
Meshlium receives sensor data from Waspmote Plug & Sense! and forwards it directly to the Internet via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or 3G/GPRS protocols depending on the connectivity options available in the area.
In case connectivity fails, data can be stored in an internal data base. Meshlium is encased in a rugged, waterproof enclosure that protects it from the harshest conditions.
3. What do you want to do with your data?
Meshlium is ready to send sensor data to all the Cloud software platforms below. Just select the most suitable for you, get an account from the provider and configure your Meshlium.
If you are not ready to make a choice or prefer to implement your own Cloud solution, you can still configure Meshlium to store data into any data base on the Internet or inside the Meshlium device (see diagram below).

Axeda provides advanced Cloud-based services and software for managing connected products and implementing M2M applications to take the cost and complexity out of connecting and remote servicing. Customers use Axeda’s M2M cloud service to optimize their business processes with data from their connected products and to trigger alerts.
Esri develops geographic information systems (GIS). ArcGIS is a complete spatial information platform provided by Esri, to create, analyze, store and spread data, models, maps and 3D globes. It can be accessed via desktop applications, browsers, handsets or smart phones. ArcGIS targets GIS professionals, location analysts and developers who want to create their own applications based on geographical data. Now Waspmote sensor data can be directly integrated into your existing maps and ArcGIS applications.
Azure is the Microsoft Cloud Computing Platform. It offers services of computing, virtual machines, databases, storage, messaging and many others. Azure Service Bus, the Azure messaging platform, is a message system that allows to exchange information between different systems, inside and outside Azure platform, independent of the architecture, operating system or complexity level. Meshlium is able to use Azure queues: one or more senders (Waspmote nodes) can push messages to the queue and an application or service can receive the data.
MQTT is a publish/subscribe, extremely simple and lightweight messaging protocol, designed by IBM for constrained devices and low-bandwidth, high-latency or unreliable networks, where battery power is critical. Due to its features of delivery assurance and bandwidth reduction, MQTT is being used by Cloud platforms such as IBM or Carriots: this means that Waspmote data can be stored inside them or in any other Cloud platform based on this protocol.
Sentilo is an open source sensor and actuator platform designed to fit in the Smart City architecture of any city who looks for openness and easy interoperability. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of cities and companies that believe that using open standards and free software is the first smart decision a Smart City should take.
Telefónica provides an Internet of Things cloud platform to ease and speed up the development and deployment of solutions based on real time stream data. The platform provides a wide range of cloud services, including connectivity, to vertical applications (Smart Cities, Smart Metering, Vending Machines, etc.) working with remote devices (sensors, tablets, etc).
ThingWorx is a software platform designed to build and run the applications of the connected world. ThingWorx reduces the time, cost, and risk required to build M2M and IoT applications by providing a complete application design, runtime, and intelligence environment. The ThingWorx platform includes flexible device connectivity options, rapid application development tools, scalable storage, and supports various deployment models.
IoTSens is an horizontal platform for the development of Smart Cities for public and private companies which provides functionalities to gather, integrate, store and analyze data from the city in a global perspective enabling either public or private managers and citizens to understand what is happening in real time in their cities in order to proceed with solutions immediately.
