Orange Business Services unveiled IoT Connect Anywhere, its low-power wide area network (LPWA) connectivity offering based on LoRa open standard technology.
IoT Connect Anywhere provides on-premise connectivity suitable for a range of applications, including energy and fluid management, on-site tracking, geo-fencing, waste control, environmental metering, lighting and parking monitoring in smart cities. It provides customers with scalable, end-to-end connectivity between devices and a data management platform. It is affordable as it does not require any major hardware investment. It relies on the Orange Business Services Datavenue IoT and analytics platform, which is designed to collect, analyze and turn raw data into actionable insights.
Orange said it can also provide consulting and integration expertise to further guarantee a project's success. In addition to the security mechanisms in the LoRaWAN protocol, IoT Connect Anywhere includes secure transport between the gateway and the network and data delivery over HTTPS. This means all communications between the browser and the website are encrypted.
