Kerlink and Tata Communications Transformation Services (TCTS) announced a partnership to promote and deploy LoRaWAN IoT networks globally. 

TCTS, a subsidiary of Tata Communications provides business transformation, managed network operations, network outsourcing and consultancy services to telecommunication companies around the world. 

Kerlink and TCTS will offer easily installed and managed networks that include the full range of smart-city applications for lighting, parking, building, energy and refuse management, as well as smart agriculture, metering, and safety and security applications. TCTS will provide customers with sensors, integration expertise and the applications needed for its networks. Kerlink will bring Wirnet iBTS stations for low-power/wide-area (LPWA) connectivity. It will also provide its Wanesy Management Center for deploying and operating networks.

TCTS and Kerlink will focus on this market and demonstrate – based on extensive telecom experience, multiple IoT use cases in critical applications, and a proven record of deployments around the world – that LoRaWAN technology is the ideal private-network solution for these groups.
