The IoT Communication challenge

IoT is a fragmented market where the entry barrier for realising an end to end solution is high. IoT solution providers are capable in delivering value to the end users through different applications, but getting the required information out of the sensor devices is still a major bottleneck. Many IoT ecosystem players do not provide domain expertise in wireless networking or serial connection for sensor devices. It is also a demanding task to design and realise a communication network, especially when the operations start scaling into greater numbers of deployed devices.  

Cloud controlled mesh LPWAN, Plug & Play

When you deploy sensors, you want to get them quickly connected, without having to think about how. The Synap IoT Network is designed to do just this: when a new sensor is deployed and connected to a Synap modem, the network automatically recognises it and connects it to the Cloud, and now the modem can be controlled completely from the SynapCloud application.

This capability means you don’t have to learn wireless networking nor do any programming to try out sensors. When the modem is connected to the network, it can be configured very simply by downloading a profile that contains the sensor’s own data structure and command set, and now the sensor can be controlled remotely through the modem. This also means rollouts of large sensor networks are as fast as you can bring the sensors on site (together with the connected Synap modems).

Synap IoT system overview


Synap Modem, i.e. MN100, with a serial connection port (RS422/485) for the sensor. The MODBUS protocol is supported. The modem connects the sensor to the Synap IoT wireless network. Automatic Mesh feature is supported for coverage extension.


Synap Gateway device that connects the wireless part of the Synap IoT network to the Internet via an Ethernet connection port. The actual Internet connection can be of any type, be it directly via a cable or through WiFi or other wireless means.


This is Synap’s cloud-based network controller, where all network and sensor management are done. Here all sensor data can be accessed through an API. Sensor-specific commands are configured in SynapCloud’s web interface.
