7. www.chess-wise.eu What should you look for? The requirements for an BIoT platform (Building Internet of Things) SECURITY Is the network secure by design? 2015 was “The Year of the Cyber Attack”. Cyber Security should be a concern for any user or owner of connected devices. Adding network connectivity to any “thing” can certainly provide great value but also brings with it potential risks. SCALABILITY How scalable is it and is that scalable enough for the business case of my green building? What determines scalability? Depending on your business case/ use case you would want to scale up simple and easy - with as little reconfiguration, extra interfaces, gateways, routers as possible. RESILIENCE How resilient is the network? Does it have self-organizing/ self healing qualities? Are there single point of failures? (number of master/ slave relations in the network?) The level of resilience impacts your down-time, maintenance costs, operational costs and the end-user experience. MOBILITY How easy can moving assets and people be tracked and traced? And with what accuracy? Buildings are highly dynamic environments. Assets and people move everywhere all the time. Can your IoT platform handle that (most can't -> IP based) ADDRESSABILITY How many nodes (smart assets) can be addressed in 1 group? (e.g. Can lights can be a part of more than one light scene) The addressability impacts the scalability but also the simplicity of commissioning and the flexible application of nodes to fit one or more purposes. INTEGRATED COMMUNICATION Can nodes also communicate with eachother? (Can sensors and actuators exchange real time set-points and states? ) If nodes can both publish and subscribe to messages, the network becomes highly agile (easy to commission/ flexible) INDEPENDENCY Does the network depend on the cloud/third party providers? Or can it operate as an abstact, autonomous network? How much control do you have over the ownership of the data/ network? The level of independency impacts the security and operational costs. Depending on the infrastructure (back office in the cloud?) and the business model of your solution provider you will have more or less control over your data, the network and its costs. RADIO FREQUENCY + STRENGTH On what frequency does the protocol operate? And at what strength (mWatts)? What are the duty cycles? It can get crowded at certain frequency. Can the protocol operate on other frequencies, and what are the parameters that influence its reliability and its distortion rate? OVER-THE-AIR VERSION UPDATES How easy can devices be updated. In case of a system update, would you need to update devices manualy? Or does the network allow for OTA updates? Depending on the amount of nodes and updates an OTA update feature can have a huge impact on operational costs and down time. Imagine having to manually update all devices? What should you be asking? Why is this important?

17. www.chess-wise.eu MyriaMesh Story The MyriaMesh protocol has been inspired by nature itself. Nature shows us beautiful examples of self- organized systems of cells, all contributing equally to an organism as a whole. Organic systems grow in size and behavior, simply by adding a cell which automatically becomes a supporting part of the system. This intelligent design makes an organism ultra-scalable, resilient and robust and it has no single point of failure. This became the starting point for the development of MyriaMesh, a full mesh network in which all nodes are equal and each node contributes to an ever more powerful network. Like birds in a flock or fish in shoals.
18. www.chess-wise.eu MyriaMesh Technology • MyriaMesh is a wireless connectivity protocol, developed by Chess Wise, that enables +10.000 Things (assets, devices) to self-organize the best way to communicate with each other. • …enables simple integration and deployment of devices and applications • …is a mesh network: heterarchical topology and ultra-scalable to over 10.000 nodes in one network • ….is ultra-resilient: self-organzing + self- healing • …is secure by design • …is radio agnostic (supports short + long range) • …has low operational cost • …delivers over-the-air version updates
19. www.chess-wise.eu How do wireless IoT protocols meet the requirements for Smart Building platforms? – a benchmark Proprietary protocols Openprotocols REQUIREMENTS SMART BUILDING PLATFORMS MYRI- AMESH WIREPAS* ZIGBEE ZWAVE LORA 6LOWPAN WIFI BLE MESH** SECURITY strong encryption and authentication (Aes CCM) protects the network traffic from eavesdropping and tampering. Each node has a unique id, allowing it to obtain authenticated updates.Chess wise uses Hardware security Modules (HsM), similar to those used in the banking industry. This provides optimal protection of all product keys, both public and private, with a 128 bit AES encryption standard. SCALABILITY Contrary to iP based, hierarchical networks, MyriaMesh is heterarchical and scalable to more than 10,000 different devices, allowing one network to control ‘everything’ for seamless platform integration. RESILIENCY The network’s collective intelligence deploys and restores (new) nodes automatically. in short: MyriaMesh is self-organizing and self- healing and has no single point of failure. MOBILITY Contrary to IP based connectivity platforms, MyriaMesh allows for mobility of naodes for example to support track & trace applications. ? ADDRESSABILITY MyriaMesh can address 65k nodes in 1 group. All nodes are equally able to reach peers, groups or all nodes. One device can be a member of 8 groups simultaneously. PUBLISH &SUBSCRIBE CONTROLLAYER MyriaMesh’s universal network language enables sensors and actuators to exchange real time set- points and states (e.g turn light at 70% during daylight-state) that allows for simple (re)configuration. ? INDEPENDENCY A MyiaMesh network can operate independently. Its nodes have a collective intelligence that - together- manage the network’s individual applications. Connection to complementary cloud (management) applications is simple but optional. OVER-THE-AIRVERSION UPDATES MyriaMesh is radio agnostic. its protocol operates on short range (smart building) as well as long range frequencies (smart city/ outdoor). ?
