ST Joins mioty Alliance to Fuel Massive IoT Apps

STMicroelectronics (ST) has announced its support for the mioty standard, which enables highly scalable, long-range, and extremely low-power wireless connections. Joining the mioty Alliance, which maintains the specifications and promotes the technology, ST has announced availability of a protocol stack from ST Authorized Partner Stackforce that allows customers to create mioty devices using the STM32WL wireless System-on-Chip (SoC).

mioty sends messages using an advanced telegram-splitting technique, which is recognized and standardized by the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI). This ensures extremely short radio transmissions that allow extended operation without the logistical challenges of replacing batteries in massive IoT networks. Short transmissions also minimize interference with nearby signals and allow many thousands of mioty nodes to coexist on the same network.

mioty data packets can travel several kilometers in built-up areas and more than 15km with line of sight, allowing just a few base stations to cover large industrial sites or outdoor areas such as oilfields. In addition, mioty devices can communicate while moving at up to 120km/h without signal-fading issues, serving applications such as fleet management, asset tracking and theft detection.

The mioty protocol stack for the STM32WL has been developed by Stackforce, a founding member of the mioty Alliance and ST Authorized Partner. The stack is available as a library for direct application integration or firmware, ready to be flashed directly onto the SoC for modem-like use.
