Once upon a time there was Marconi. Back in time we learned how to compress our messages into dots and dashes. How to present a picture to the other side with Morse code. We found out our passion to communicate over long distances with minimum resources. We kept our passion alive through years, but we have changed the way of speaking our efficient long-distance language. Low Power Wide Area Networks are our main tool in researching, developing and deploying Internet of Things to make it friendly to users. We founded XIRIS Institute to convert our passion to create a better tomorrow for everyone.
XIRIS Institute is a non-profit organisation for research, development and deployment of new technologies in the Internet of Things and communications area.
