FREMONT, CA. The LoRa Alliance announced it has expanded its global reach to 100 LoRaWAN networks, both public and private, in close to 100 countries, at the end of 2018.
This growth included 30 percent and 50 percent in the Asia-Pacific and European regions, respectively. The LoRaWAN’s end-devices’ reach to public networks was said to have tripled since the beginning of last year, showing how adoption of IoT solutions has achieved such significance.
“Reaching this deployment milestone is a major achievement for the LoRa Alliance,” said Donna Moore, LoRa Alliance’s CEO and Chairwoman. “Only LoRaWAN has strong, established networks with broad coverage areas, while also offering the private network option. For companies looking to launch IoT products and solutions today, the LoRaWAN standard is the only viable solution. Features like firmware updates over the air and the fact that LoRaWAN is an open specification with a robust certification program ensure network and device interoperability. These benefits give confidence to the market that companies are future-proofed and can deploy solutions today with assurance they will work in the future.”
