We’re lucky to live in a time of quick and constant innovation; new software frameworks and technologies, constantly improved measurement devices, communication technologies that offer ever increasing ranges and capabilities. The flow of available new technologies into every industry offers the chance to improve, innovate and excel in ever increasing ways, and this is no different when it comes to the decentralised energy industry.
This is the reason why we invest heavily into our software engineering and product teams in Sycous. It’s our responsibility to make sure our products and services constantly leverage the current state of the art to deliver the best results in our industry. From assessing new hardware products to ensure we have the best solutions for onsite measurement and data collection, to incorporating the latest software best-practices and technologies into our in-house built software to keep our technologies efficient, functional and secure.
In particular, developments in IoT technologies such as LoRa and NBIOT offer the potential for vast improvements over existing metering data collection technologies. These technology’s increased reliability and range are allowing our development teams to tackle old problems in new ways, which promise better results at lower cost to clients and consumers. But working in isolation is seldom productive. There is a reason why we work better in groups, so we can utilise the varying strengths and skill sets that can be brought to bear by a team; this logic is not just for individuals working as a team, but also applies to business and organisations working together to combine their areas of expertise.
