Sensor-based solutions using LoRa technology are in various stages of maturity and resultant value. In order to accelerate the market, companies are investing in delivering services that help solution vendors learn about their options and rapidly move from concept to production and deployment. Some organizations are providing end-device manufacturers and enterprise solution providers with market education and technical services and are actively involved in establishing local innovation hubs and partnerships.
The future of connectivity
This combination of LoRaWAN network and sensor technologies, coupled with a rapidly emerging IoT ecosystem, are beginning to deliver results across a variety of new and sometimes surprising IoT end-uses such as sustainable energy, food production and distribution, environmental monitoring, smart buildings and cities, health care, transportation and more.
The openness of both the LoRaWAN specification and the LoRa-Alliance is building the momentum of IoT deployments around the globe. In this context, organizations now have greater access to overcome the fragmentation of closed, vertically-oriented IoT systems, architectures and applications — allowing more things to participate in the IoT revolution.
