Simulating web endpoints to understand RCML

Learning something new is usually most effective with a hands on approach rather than only reading documentation. But hands on may be tricky in a developer’s context as you don’t always have all resources at hand. In this tutorial, we’ll learn a quick trick to understand the basics of RCML testing without the need for having application servers up and running.

How to retrieve your IoT data with a MQTT client ?

In most cases, an IoT Telco operator allows you access the data from your sensors by pushing this data to your application over HTTP. We have seen in previous articles that Proximus CloudEngine makes it possible to benefit from other integration capabilities, ranging from Microsoft Azure and SAP IoT Cloud down to various protocols such as sFTP and mail. To the already existing CloudEngine’s ability to use its own MQTT client to connect to your MQTT broker, we add now the ability for your MQTT client to connect to the CloudEngine’s broker.

Decoding OpenAMR payloads for Maddalena LoRaWAN water sensors

Maddalena IoT-enabled water meters

Maddalena s.p.a. is an Italian company providing water readers that are frequently used in Belgium and across Europe. Water meters such as the PR-MWM can detect the lowest flow rates (from 0.5 liters / hour). So this makes them, according to this company, “the ideal meter for billing cold water consumption in collective housing”.

Maddalena understood the market’s need for connected meters quite well. So they teamed up with Kerlink to create a LoRaWAN™ add-on radio module. This module makes it possible to collect water consumption data over long distances. Its battery life can last up to 15 years thanks to the low power requirements of LoRaWAN and an optimization in the way this module works.
