November 15, 2016 //By Julien Happich
VersaSense's MicroPnP is a standards-compliant and low-power Sensing-as-a-Service solution that combines zero-configuration plug-and-play integration of IoT peripherals, scalable and 24/7 monitoring and control of devices across different sites.

The MicroPnP platform offers a complete hardware and software platform supporting a range of over 50 different plug-and-play sensors that instantly integrate with any network to provide instant sensing and control at a greatly reduced total cost of ownership.VersaSense claims it enables the true plug-and-play identification and integration of any sensor and actuator at 10 million times lower power than existing solutions, leveraging Linear Technology's SmartMesh IP wireless network for decade-long battery lifetimes together with accurate tracking of battery levels for every device in the network.

Open standards and protocols ensure seamless interoperation with no-vendor lock-in.

The compact MicroPnP devices can be deployed in different business scenarios ranging from factory or data center monitoring, smart farming, to home energy management for clients that vary from SMEs to multinational corporations.
