Tencent has joined the LoRa Alliance at the highest level, further accelerating the adoption of LoRaWAN technology.
Tencent has invested significantly in technology and applications for LoRaWAN and will support further development of the LoRaWAN ecosystem. The company also announced plans to build a LoRaWAN network in Shenzhen with local partners. Finally, it provides device-edge-cloud LoRaWAN solutions on its network for a wide variety of IoT application and end users, such as government public services.
One of the main challenges for the IoT is that use cases vary greatly depending on the application, with different types of devices being connected that must interoperate. Security and reliability represent another challenge for application deployment. The LoRaWAN protocol offers flexibility in deployment models, proven bi directional security, low cost and high efficiency, which has enabled the successful deployments of IoT solutions from device to cloud, says LoRa Alliance.
