LoRaWAN trials in USA are important



Comcast will test LoRaWAN IOT Networks in two markets  is great to hear, as without the USA networks., LoRaWAN based IoT solutions are less likely to succeed.

We have SigFox, Lte and LoRaWAN networks in Australia, each rolling out and trying to gain customers. We will need to see which succeeds globally to ensure infrastructure spend here is made in the right areas.

“Commercial deployment would pit Comcast’s machineQ IoT business against AT&T and Verizon’s IoT divisions, which use 2G, 3G, and LTE networks and have been going after similar enterprise vertical markets for the past several years. In addition, it will compete with France’s SigFox, which has said it plans to be in 100 markets in the United States by year-end.”

LoRaWAN has gained traction with companies like Cisco, which has a LoRaWAN offering that is being used by the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) in Germany.

Japan’s SoftBank is also deploying a LoRaWAN network this year to supplement its narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) network.

The ThingsNetworks is also rolling out free, public IOT networks globally, with community teams in each city making the necessary investment. Search for your local meetup group to get involved.
