Bouygues Telecom this week launched a dedicated Internet of Things(IoT) subsidiary, Objenious, headed by Stéphane Allaire with a team of around 20 employees. Objenious will exploit the LoRa network, which has been rolled out by Bouygues Telecom in 15 of France’s biggest towns and cities and which targets to cover 50% of the French population by mid-2016.

As part of its initiative, Objenious is collaborating with a number of vendors across a number of industries and areas within the IoT value chain including the development of sensors adapted to the needs of its customers, with partners such as Watteco, Eolane or Finsécur, a provider of fire safety solutions and by offering data management via the cloud-based IoT Platform solution from Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE IoT Platform) that enables data to be stored, pre-processed, acquired and viewed. This will see Objenious unveiling a catalogue of B2B and B2B2C services that will be addressing areas such as vehicle fleet management, remote meter reading, predictive maintenance and geolocation, amongst others.

Stéphane Allaire, Chairman of Objenious
We have signed partnerships with some of France’s leading IoT players. Major industrialgroups of course, but also start-ups that are making their mark, either in sensors or businessapplications. We have thus become a keyplayer based on a national LoRa network and an IoT platform that is now ready to host ourcustomers.
