After nationwide investment of building Internet of Things Network in Dutch, KPN – a Dutch Telecom – is ready to expand more potential of Internet of Things in many sectors. With IoT is being a hit for many industries, Netherland Government invested big number for the development of the IoT Network.
KPN has deployed nationwide Lora Network for Internet of Things in the Netherlands. Lora which is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) intended for wireless battery operated Things in regional, national or global network, has been connecting 1.5 million devices across the country.
KPN’s COO Joost Farwerck said, “Last year we identified an increasing demand for low-power network technology for internet of things applications. We are responding to this by choosing LoRa, so millions of devices can be connected to the internet in a cost-effective manner.”
KPN also announced that The Netherlands is the first country to deploy Lora Network for Internet of Things application (IoT). The telco says it has equipped hundreds of existing mobile transmission towers across the Netherlands with a LoRa gateway and antenna, allowing millions of devices to be connected.
As Internet of Things grows, the implementations is not just in a tiny amount of devices around us. Industrial IoT is one of IoT subjects which focuses on industry such as logistic and manufacturing. This subject has been a highlight this lately and becomes one of popular subject of Internet of Things implementation.
With nationwide deployment, Cisco endorse Lora as Industrial Internet of Things network. Cisco has also launched into the LPWAN market with the release of a gateway and adapter module that provides LoRa connectivity as well as WiF and cellular links to Cisco switches. Connected machinery, especially in the enterprise and industrial IoT sectors, are a huge opportunity for Cisco.
As we watch the IoT take shape, we’re convinced that the real money to be made will be via platforms – the ability to show a business exactly what you can bring to their table on the back of IoT technologies. As such, the largest businesses in the IT and OT market are natural candidates to offer these platforms to the largest enterprises.
