News Emitel becomes member of the LoRa Alliance

Partnership within the LoRa Alliance® will allow Emitel to scale up and accelerate the implementation of IoT projects based on LoRaWAN® (Long Range Radio) technology. Working with the companies that make up the association will also help the Company to develop comprehensive solutions for Smart Cities.

For several years, Emitel has been developing throughout the country a network for IoT/SmartCity needs, on the basis of, among others, the LoRaWAN® technology. The low-energy long-range radio network allows effective transmission of data from sensors to the base station. Launching a LoRaWAN®-compliant network in a given area can be simpler and cheaper than using, for example, mobile networks, which enables faster deployment of services and solutions used by industry and local government, among others.

“Joining the LoRa Alliance® will allow us to implement solutions dedicated to our customers even more efficiently. With access to the latest information and standards, as well as through networking with members of the organisation, we hope, among others, to extend our range of on-line goods and services,” – said Andrzej J. Kozłowski – President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

The availability of LoRaWAN technology enables the development of services in the field of smart cities. It also offers an opportunity for local entrepreneurs, start-ups and larger companies to develop their solutions, particularly within urban agglomerations. Sensors connected to the base station form a network that can efficiently collect relevant data. This network can be used for control, for example to remotely read water, electricity or gas meters, use parking spaces, filling of urban waste bins, or for monitoring the environment, including air pollution parameters. Emitel successfully implemented first such projects in Wrocław and Piaseczno, among others.
