Moeco brings together existing networks and private gateway owners by crowdsourcing its infrastructure — data from the sensors can be transferred using any smartphone or compatible gateway (even home-based).
The platform allows users to collect and transfer any type of data from any sensor anywhere in the world. Adding a new sensor is easy and permissionless — just add its ID using a website.
The platform takes care of payment and billing processes, and ensures exact data delivery. Businesses owning sensors pay for connectivity and the gateway owners receive money for each connection made through their gateway.
Moeco is a software solution working with existing gateway devices. It does not require any hardware tweaking to connect any gateway to Moeco network. Moeco SDK is a code snippet which can be uploaded as a firmware or can be integrated into an application code. The data transmission happens in the background with no access to user data or ID.
Moeco BLE network is based on Bluetooth Low Energy technology and uses the smartphones of regular people as BLE gateways. Anyone could become a gateway by installing an app with Moeco SDK (The Moeco official app or other multiple partners).
The platform allows the usage of beacon-like sensors that broadcast data without pairing. Data transferring begins automatically and works in the background when a smartphone with Moeco SDK is around, no actions required.
Moeco LR is based on LPWAN technology designed for long range communications at a low bit rate. Moeco brings together existing LPWAN networks and incentivized private gateway owners who can join Moeco network in a permissionless manner and earn money for providing the connectivity.
Every gateway automatically connects to the platform and starts transferring data from the Moeco sensors instantly without any need for technical setup except for the gateway firmware update.
Developers enjoy lower device production costs by building more energy efficient and less complicated sensors with cheaper connectivity chips than those of the GSM standard.
Businesses benefit from hassle-free deployment and seamless global expansion without the need of negotiating with connectivity providers.
Cities don’t need to build expensive IoT infrastructure — they can use their citizens’ smartphones and private gateways to collect any type of data.
Moeco BLE is distributed using mobile apps with Moeco SDK. Having 2-3 popular apps in partnership is sufficient to get a city or even a whole country covered with Moeco BLE.
Moeco LR can connect devices across a large area with up to a 10-15 km radius with a single gateway. Several dozen LPWAN gateways would be enough to provide full coverage for a large city like London.
Moeco is making a move by launching a pilot project in the 4 most developed IoT cities: Dubai, Hong Kong, London, and Barcelona. Starting from this, Moeco aims to go global with the ambition to become a worldwide IoT network.
