BehrTech Intros Wireless IIoT Connectivity Brand and Product Family

BehrTech, a provider of wireless connectivity software for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has announced MYTHINGS, a wireless IIoT connectivity brand and product family intended to simplify and accelerate the deployment of low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs). The MYTHINGS software platform includes MIOTY, an LPWAN software that complies with ETSI's TS 103-357 standard.

MYTHINGS was created to facilitate full-scale LPWAN deployments in demanding industrial and commercial environments. Because it's based on the MIOTY protocol, LPWAN networks can be implemented for long-range communication. It features a long battery life and high interference immunity, the company reports.

This year, BehrTech plans to release a lineup of products under the MYTHINGS brand. The first is the MYTHINGS Module, a pre-configured rapid prototyping module running the MYTHINGS Library, a source code for IoT end nodes featuring MIOTY software. The MYTHINGS Module is intended to enable systems integrators, VARs, technology vendors and other companies in a variety of industries to build their own sensor prototypes for IIoT networks.

"Our goal with the MYTHINGS platform is to deliver a highly integrable and interoperable suite of software-driven IIoT connectivity products, something that does not exist on the market today," said Wolfgang Thieme, BehrTech's chief product officer, in a prepared statement.

The MYTHINGS Module complies with the mikroBUS add-on board open standard design. By specifying the physical layout of microcontrollers or microprocessors (mainboards) and compatible integrated circuits and modules (add-on boards), the mikroBUS standard enables flexible hardware design and development with a growing ecosystem of standardized development and add-on boards. Businesses can mix and match the MYTHINGS Module with various sensors, interfaces, displays and amplifiers to build a customized end-node for a variety of use cases and deployments.
