Networking

» 3G Networking Guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the 3G module for the Waspmote sensor platform. Configuration, power modes, making calls and videocalls to other phones, sending SMSs, sending TCP and UDP frames, uploading and downloading files (FTP and FTPS), getting URLs (HTTP and HTTPS) and sending and receiving emails (SMTP and POP3) are some of the explained topics.

» 802.15.4 Networking Guide (v12)

This guide shows how to use the XBee 802.15.4 modules. The XBee 802.15.4 modules comply with the standard IEEE 802.15.4. We will learn how to configure a XBee 802.15.4 and how to send frames from one module to another.

» 868 Networking Guide (v12)

This guide shows how to use the XBee 868 modules. This protocol allows to establish long range transmissions. We will learn how to configure a XBee 868 and how to send frames from one module to another.

» 900 Networking Guide (v12)

This guide shows how to use the XBee 900 modules. This protocol allows to establish long range transmissions. We will learn how to configure a XBee 900 and how to send frames from one module to another.

» Bluetooth Low Energy Networking Guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the Waspmote Bluetooth Low Energy module (BLE), compatible with the new standard Bluetooth 4.0. BLE is a new short range radio technology, optimized for ultra low power applications. It is different from Bluetooth classic (BR/EDR), but with same benefits like robustness, interoperability, royalty free or connectivity with smartphones and PCs.

» Bluetooth Networking Guide (v12)

In this guide it is shown how to use the main features of Bluetooth module and how to configure and make inquiries to easy manage discovered devices. A description of dedicated API is also provided, showing different ways of discover a Bluetooth device.

» DigiMesh Networking Guide (v12)

This guide shows how to use the XBee Digimesh modules. The XBee-802.15.4 and XBee-900 modules can use an optional firmware (DigiMesh) so they are able to create mesh networks as multi-hop transmissions are permitted.

» GPRS+GPS Networking Guide (v12)

This guide shows how to use the GPRS+GPS module. The 3G+GPS and GPRS+GPS modules for Waspmote and Plug & Sense! allow to easily perform realtime tracking applications. The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by using a HTTP request to a web server along with extra information from the sensors included in the node. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Googlemaps to show the location in realtime.

» GSM/GPRS Networking Guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the GPRS_Pro module for the Waspmote sensor platform. Configuration, power modes, making calls to other phones, sending SMSs, sending TCP and UDP frames, uploading and downloading FTP files and getting URLs are some of the explained topics.

» LoRa Gateway tutorial (v12)

1 – Introduction The SX1272 LoRa module can work in Waspmote, Plug & Sense!, Arduino, Raspeberry Pi or Intel Galileo. The normal topology for this technology is a star: all the nodes transmit towards a central sink node. This central sink node can be: another node (Waspmote, Plug & Sense!, Arduino, ..) one Meshlium with [...]

» LoRa Networking Guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the Waspmote LoRa module. LoRa is a new, private and spread-spectrum modulation technique which allows sending data at extremely low data-rates to extremely long ranges. Libelium's LoRa module works in both 868 and 900 MHz ISM bands, which makes it suitable for virtually any country.

» LoRa vs LoRaWAN tutorial

Libelium currently offers two options of this type of radio technology: LoRa and LoRaWAN LoRa contains only the link layer protocol and is perfect to be used in P2P communications between nodes. LoRa modules are a little cheaper that the LoRaWAN ones. LoRaWAN includes the network layer too so it is possible to send the [...]

» LoRaWAN Networking guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the Waspmote LoRaWAN module. LoRaWAN is a new, private and spread-spectrum modulation technique which allows sending data at extremely low data-rates to extremely long ranges. The Libelium LoRaWAN module has been integrated into the main sensor lines Waspmote OEM and Plug & Sense!, so now you can create your own Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN).

» Sigfox Networking guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the Waspmote Sigfox module. Sigfox technology offers very long ranges for low-power, battery constrained nodes. Sigfox is great for very simple and autonomous devices which need to send small amounts of data to this ubiquitous network, taking advantage on the Sigfox infrastructure.

» WiFi Networking Guide (v12)

This guide describes all features of the Wifi module for the Waspmote sensor platform, which has been designed to make a connection between a Waspmote and any other device with a Wifi radio (smart-phones, computers, routers...) or to make a connection directly to an Internet server.

» XBee firmware upgrade tutorial

Important: Changing or upgrading the XBee firmware is a delicate process that may harm permanently the XBee module. Only advanced users should use this application. Libelium supplies the XBee transceivers with the desired firmware version (802.15.4, ZigBee, 868, 900, DigiMesh 2.4GHz) and is not responsible for the XBee modules damage when changing or upgrading firmware. [...]
