E-world 2024: Highlights & key takeaways

28.02.2024 – News


E-world 2024 was a big success filled with many interesting meetings and conversations! Read more about the highlights and insights from the fair down below. 


Lansen stand

Three busy days went by fast when we showcased multiple up-coming product-launches as well as our portfolio of sensors and infrastructure products. It was fun to see the big interest in our wireless M-Bus to mioty bridge, a device meant to bridge the gap between wireless M-bus infrastructure and the mioty technology.

Another product we were proud to showcase was the upcoming micro M-Bus master - a converter that makes your outdoor meters wireless. This product is meant for smaller installations where you need to convert data from a few meters. For more information regarding this product, please contact our sales department here

Smart Metering Hub

A part from our own stand Lansen was also part of the Smart Metering Hub, and innovative space that brought together IoT key players such as Diehl Metering, WIKA Group, mioty alliance, LORIOT, Sentinum GmbH, Stadtwerke Duisburg Metering GmbH and LeineNetz GmbH. With mioty in focus, experts of all facets of multiconnectivity gathered to share and showcase their insights for the future of smart metering.

Key takeaways

Mioty is growing rapidly

A big takeaway from the fair was that mioty is becoming more and more established and known in the industry. The general interest, both in our customer base but also in the industry in general, shows that the need for scalability is increasing, which mioty helps to achieve. This trend signals a paradigm shift towards robust, long-range communication solutions that will reshape the future of smart metering and data management. 

Mioty enables big installations that is neccesary to utilize a city's capacity in an optimal way, now and in the future. To give som examples, this can be everything from energy-optimization in buildings, to monitoring traffic lights or to optimize garbage disposal routes. It is exciting to see this adaptation, and we are sure that we will see more and more examples of this in the future.

OMS5 is enabling a new level of interoperability 

Something that was discussed frequently during the fair was OMS5. OMS5 provides a standardized way of sending data with telegram splitting (mioty). The great thing with OMS5 is that it can be integrated directly into an existing OMS-system. Regardless of if the data is sent with OMS4 or OMS5, the system will know how to interpret the information. This offers an opportunity for integrators to utilize the advantages of mioty.

Depending on your need, different versions of OMS is suitable. OMS5 for battery-driven devices is most suitable where there is a need to gather data for steering the property, or for units where you don't need data as often, such as water meters. On the other hand, OMS5 isn't suitable for units that needs frequent data collection, such as a CO2 sensor or a temperature sensor in a freezer room. 

The big advantage with OMS5 is it's scalability and robustness. The downside on the other hand is that the battery-life won't be as long, alternatively that you can't send data as frequently compared to a custom blueprint solution.

Infrastructure is the stepping stone towards utilizing the data

Another insight from the fair was that the demand for infrastructure products such as repeaters and gateways are increasing. To us, this shows a development from only storing information in a PLC or similar, to wanting to send the data directly to the cloud for better data analyzation and steering of a building. 

The key to optimize energy consumption is to enable visualisation of the data, it goes deeper than just installing sensors and meters. There are of course many factors that play into this, but from our perspective, the infrastructure products are vital for the future of data utilization. 


Lastly, a big thank you to all our customers, potential customers and industry colleagues that visited us at the stands. After many interesting meetings, conversations and inputs, we are strongly looking forward to what is to come!
