The collaboration will enable IoT use cases in hard-to-reach places all over the world. The global logistics, remote agriculture, oil & gas, mining and scientific sectors are among many that can now deploy IoT technology in areas such as the Antarctic, deserts or in the middle of Pacific Ocean.
LoRaWAN connectivity provider Actility and Hiber, the startup nano-satellite powered IoT network, are collaborating to enable LoRaWAN connectivity in the remote and developing parts of the globe that until now haven’t had access to a network. IoT service providers and enterprises operating in these areas will now be able to benefit from Hiber global nano-satellite connectivity via the Actility ThingPark Wireless and ThingPark Enterprise LoRaWAN management services. Hiber developed an interface which connects Hiberband with Actility LoRaWAN connectivity and management products. This means that critical data collected by IoT sensors can be encapsulated into LoRaWAN packets and transmitted around the world by the Hiberband network. End-users and service providers can then see, manage and operate remote LoRaWAN-powered devices in the Actility ThingPark interfaces.
