Kerlink and Aexonis partnering on center of excellence for evaluating LoraWANTM devices
February 28, 2018
In their collaboration to simplify IoT deployment and open the market to customers that can manage their own IoT networks, Kerlink is helping Aexonis build a live air IoT interoperability center of excellence at Aexonis’ offices near Paris. The facility is designed to enable manufacturers, developers and other solution providers to come together to test, integrate and experiment with solutions and to demonstrate the high value of common IoT propositions.
Kerlink provided IoT interoperability at the center with WirnetTM iBTS LoRaWANTM gateways to build a low power wide area (LPWA) network for manufacturers and others to test their LoRaWANTM devices. Aexonis provided a virtualized mediation-and-management software suite to bring together a variety of IoT protocols, technologies, devices and applications and make them work together intelligently as one comprehensive holistic deployment.
“Aexonis is dedicated to simplifying IoT network deployments and bridging the gap between the growing list of disparate IoT applications, network access technologies and connected devices,” said Benjamin Maury, global head of business development and strategic partnerships at Kerlink. “Kerlink wholeheartedly supports this mission, which helps the entire IoT ecosystem.”
‘With the installation of Kerlink’s LoraWANTM gateways, we now have a variety of LoRaWANTM IoT devices turned up and controlled through the Aexonis CemTore mediation and management software, and we will be working aggressively to expand our LoRaWANTM device interoperability in the future.’
