Wireless M-Bus Stack

The famous wireless M-Bus protocol stack by STACKFORCE leads to competitive products that are easy to install and maintain. The stack implements all protocol elements that are required for wireless M-Bus compliance and provides additional tool support. It is optimized towards a compromise of small footprint, excellent modularity and scalability, but though being feature-rich.

STACKFORCE has partnered with multiple industry leading silicon vendors, thus the stack has already been ported to various platforms.

Variants of the wireless M-Bus Stack

Our Wireless M-Bus Stack is not just available as a standard version, compliant to EN 13757 and OMS specification, but also as derivatives in conjunction with MIOTY® or LoRaWAN®. Therefore you do not only benefit from the well-proven, well-spread and popular Wireless M-Bus protocol, but also from the advantages of new LPWAN (Low-Power Wide Area Network) technologies. The'yre enabling larger transmission ranges, which especially of interest for applications like Metering and Smart City.
