Warsaw, and Thorigne Fouillard, France, May 17, 2017: Netemera, Poland’s Internet of Things (IoT) leader, and Kerlink, a specialist and global leader in network solutions dedicated to the IoT, today announced the rollout of Poland’s first nationwide low-power, wide-area (LPWA) network for Netemera’s “Network for Machines”.
The network, based on the LoRaWAN technology of the worldwide LoRa Alliance, enables the cost-savings and energy-efficiency features required for rapid implementation of the IoT. Netemera will own and operate the network, allowing Polish companies to design and deploy connected devices for smart applications like water-and-electricity metering, air-quality monitoring, fleet management, parking, lighting and asset tracking.
Netemera selected Kerlink to power its Network for Machines with state-of-the-art LoRa-capable gateways, or carrier-class base stations, according to a press statement. The network, already deployed throughout the Polish capital, Warsaw, and its suburbs, underscores Netemera’s substantial IoT investment in Poland and significantly expands the adoption of LoRa Alliance solutions in Central Europe.
“Netemera’s Network for Machines already supports several proofs of concept in the field of smart cities, metering and tracking solutions, and offers opportunities for IoT vendors and application developers to test new products and apps,” said Laurent Thiriaux, Chief Executive Officer of Netemera. “Kerlink’s reliable, high-performance solutions and LoRaWAN™ will allow our customers to quickly and simply use the IoT for multiple applications.”
“Installed with Netemera’s commitment to quickly deploy a nationwide IoT network in Poland, Kerlink’s solutions provide low-power, long-distance connectivity that Netemera’s customers and partners require,” said Aurélien Seugnet, Kerlink Sales Representative Network Operators.
