"we not only wish to provide a commercial network for real IoT use cases, but to really promote and drive IoT innovation in this region, Everynets’s flexible solutions have really enabled us to do that,” Renato Brunetti President, Unidata
London, UK (PRWEB) October 20, 2016
Everynet Ltd, the disruptive Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity company is pleased to announce that they have partnered with Unidata Spa, a leader in ICT innovation in Italy who have launched a LoRaWAN Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) IoT Network in Rome.
The everynet LoRaWAN network infrastructure provides coverage in Rome with the Core Management Platform providing Unidata, a flexible way to monitor and manage both their network and the end IoT devices connected to it. The Unidata network is being deployed initially in Rome and other municipalities in the Lazio region of Italy, which is home to nearly six million people and where it already has extensive fiber optic networks and radio infrastructure. Unidata will roll out additional networks starting in select municipalities throughout 2016 -2017.
The LoRaWAN Lab will use this network to drive both IoT innovation from an end device perspective and to test ‘real world’ use cases. It will provide a showcase for LPWA IoT application verticals from the sensor to the application and will offer opportunities for both developers and potential users of IoT technology to explore both the technical and business possibilities.
Unidata would like to invite all LoRaWAN end device companies to put their latest technology on show in the lab develop and test their own LoRaWAN based solution, this will allow developers and researches the option to use the network.
“It is our pleasure to work with the Unidata Team, they have rapidly moved from a small PoC to a tangible deployment that will drive the adoption of LoRaWAN from both a commercial and innovation perspective. We are very excited to see what innovative products and applications are developed within this initiative and offer further testing in the Everythings Interoperability lab to all of Unidata’s partners” said Matt Key, CEO, Everynet “Unidata explored many technologies for IoT networks and believes that LoRaWAN with its open standard and large ecosystem is the only real world solution to meet our needs, we not only wish to provide a commercial network for real IoT use cases, but to really promote and drive IoT innovation in this region, Everynets’s flexible solutions have really enabled us to do that,” Renato Brunetti President, Unidata.
