LPWAN standards body announces Weightless-P board appointment

Cambridge, UK and Taipei City, Taiwan - February 28, 2017 - The Weightless SIG today announced flagship technology vendor, Ubiik Inc., has joined the Board of Directors.

Operating out of Taiwan, the company is creating the next wave of smarter LPWAN products and is bringing substantive disruption to this dynamic technology space.

Based around a narrow band modulation scheme, Weightless-P offers full acknowledgement of 100% of uplink traffic for unmatched QoS in a system operating in unlicensed ISM and SRD spectrum. The technology overcomes the severe restrictions on network capacity imposed by inefficient spread spectrum regimes and enables new levels of network performance and security demanded by future users. Equipment is due to launch at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany on March 14.

Ubiik Inc. founder and CEO, Tien-haw Peng, commented “We are excited to join the Weightless SIG’s board at this significant moment” adding “we are looking forward to bringing higher performance LPWAN technology to the rapidly evolving IoT connectivity space and extensive Weightless ecosystem”.

Weightless SIG CEO, William Webb, added “Ubiik Inc. brings world class capability to the group and we are delighted to welcome them to the board”.

Ubiik’s appointment follows Sony Europe’s recent accession to the board of Weightless SIG.

Weightless Ignition Packs are available to pre-order on the Weightless website now and are expected to ship to customers following the formal launch at Embedded World (Hall 3, Booth 638).
