Smart city operator Connexin is set to expand its Internet of Things (IoT) network to provide carrier-grade roaming long range wide area connectivity and infrastructure to customers nationwide.
Better known as LoRaWAN, the universal connectivity low cost wide-area network will help lower the barriers to entry and better enable every type of organisation across the UK to adopt IoT solutions.
Furqan Alamgir, founder and chief executive of Connexin, said: “With a low cost wide-area networking solution becoming available to all organisations across the UK, it opens up opportunities for those looking to deploy IoT solutions for a fraction of the cost of existing cellular infrastructure solutions.
“Not only does this promote the development of new IoT-based technology but it allows existing solutions to be rolled-out nationwide to encourage further adoption and will allow more people to utilise and benefit from affordable, carrier-grade IoT connectivity.”
“Connexin is committed to changing the status quo in a previously stagnant smart city and IoT market. This announcement builds on our successes to date and will make available high quality LPWAN infrastructure to all.
“Regionally, we have seen our network used by a variety of sectors and individuals from entrepreneurs and innovation centres to the utility, private and public sectors and have seen continued success with the likes of Amey in Sheffield and Yorkshire Water. These results have demonstrated the effectiveness of low powered networks across multiple use cases and we’re excited to be providing carrier-grade networks now across the entire UK.”
