Julian Tait - The Things Network Manchester

  1. 1. Crowdsourcing a public internet of things infrastructure. @thingsMcr
  2. 2. www.thethingsnetwork.org
  3. 3. Part of an evolving movement forum.thethingsnetwork.org
  4. 4. LoRaWAN Long Range Wide Area Network www.oldpicsarchive.com
  5. 5. Network architecture
  6. 6. The equipment
  7. 7. People focussed For everyone
  8. 8. Why this is important An open network allows people to develop ideas and services more freely Distributed ownership makes a more robust system Encourages innovation through play and experimentation Greater Manchester has multiple and diverse communities and businesses. An environment that supports innovation for business and communities alike @thingsMcr
  9. 9. Why hasn’t this happened before? Cost - equipment has traditionally been expensive Connectivity has been restricted Installation was complex and needed negotiation Networks were often closed and bespoke Power usage was generally too high Range of network signal was small @thingsMcr
  10. 10. What it doesn’t do Not good for data heavy applications Not really good for continuous streaming of data Can’t handle location - yet @thingsMcr Underlying data handling not quite there
  11. 11. Traditional IoT network Smart parking in the Northern Quarter using 2.4/5GHz Red dots are gateways
  12. 12. Gateway 0
  13. 13. Gateway 0
  14. 14. Range 1.5-3km urban 14km line of sight
  15. 15. Range 1.5-3km urban 14km line of sight
  16. 16. Potential to cover Greater Manchester with 30 Gateways Covering rural, suburban and urban
  17. 17. Open Network For everyone Anyone can join
  18. 18. Making IoT people focussed
  19. 19. Through design
  20. 20. Through designRe-Thingifying the Smart City
  21. 21. Through designSharing knowledge openly
  22. 22. Uses of things
  23. 23. Building a business on open • Infrastructure costs are dispersed • Distribution creates resilience and redundancy • Cost of access is limited to the hardware* • Long battery life allows for lower maintenance • Greater range means less infrastructure needed • Greater range means easier deployment • Low cost devices - becoming lower • Secure and encrypted • Scaling costs are simplified • No vendor lock-in - based on open protocol • Software stack is open source • Faster knowledge generation
  24. 24. Things Manifesto The Things Network is an open source, free initiative with the following properties: • It connects sensors and actuators, called "Things", with transceivers called "Things Gateways" to servers called "Things Access". • The first connection is "Over The Air", the second is "Over The Net". The distributed implementation of these concepts is called "The Things Network". • Anyone shall be free to set up "Things" and connect to "Things Gateways" that may or may not be their own. • Anyone shall be free to set up "Things Gateways" and connect to "Things Access" that may or may not be their own. Their "Things Gateways" will give access to all "Things" in a netneutral manner, limited by the maximum available capacity alone. • Anyone shall be free to set up "Things Access" and allow anonymous connections from the Internet. Their "Things Access" will give access to all "Things Gateways" in a net neutral manner, limited by the maximum available capacity alone. Furthermore their "Things Access" will allow connection of other "Things Access" servers for the distribution of data. • The "Over The Air" and "Over The Net" networks shall be protocol agnostic, as long as these protocols are not proprietary, open source and free of rights. • Anyone who perpetrates a "Things Access" or a "Things Gateway" will do so free of charge for all connecting devices and servers. • Anyone making use of the network is allowed to do so for any reason or cause, possibly limited by local law, fully at own risk and realizing that services are provided "as is" and may be terminated for any reason at any moment. The use may be open for anybody, limited to customers, commercial, not-for-profit, or in any other fashion. "The Things Network" providers will not pose restrictions upon its users.
