UnaBiz has signed a partnership agreement with LORIOT to develop multi-protocol solutions that enable large-scale IoT deployments for customers across a range of industries.
UnaBiz1 and LORIOT2 join forces to enable clients to deploy massive IoT solutions and provide them with the choice between multiple protocols that are best suited for their use case.
UnaBiz, the owner of Sigfox 0G technology specializes in sensor product design, manufacturing and data platform services across a hybrid of low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN) to create business value. LORIOT, pioneer and leader in the LoRaWAN® and mioty® markets, specializes in the development, management and operation of its LPWAN Network Management System solution provided as both public and private, on cloud and on-premise instances, to network operators, public administrations and large bluechip corporations.
Together, the two companies will leverage their respective expertise and strengths to deliver integrated IoT solutions with multiple LPWAN protocols capabilities, including Sigfox 0G technology, LoRaWAN® and mioty®.
The technical convergence will see the integration of LORIOT’s hybrid Network Management System Hummingbird and UnaBiz’s middleware IoT data management platform UnaConnect, to develop a catalogue of products and services.
The multi-protocol approach provides UnaBiz and LORIOT clients with more connectivity options, and greater flexibility when it comes to increasing device density. These benefits allow clients to leverage massive IoT in all desired verticals and use cases, simplifying device integration, securing the delivery of aggregated data to multiple end platforms, and, ultimately, making their IoT solutions more efficient, scalable and cost-effective.
Henri Bong, CEO and Co/Founder of UnaBiz, said:
“On top of the technical collaboration, UnaBiz will support LORIOT in the manufacturing of Industrial IoT Solutions powered by LoRaWAN® as well as other protocols used by LORIOT’s clients around the world. This strategic partnership demonstrates the positive outcome for customers and the market when LPWAN service providers unite.”
Julian Studer, CEO at LORIOT, added:
“Our strategic collaboration with UnaBiz is built on a hybrid approach, strong customer-focused culture and convergent vision. Together, we will be able to offer our customers a higher degree of flexibility and simplicity, helping them generate true value in their industries on a large scale. We are thrilled to collaborate with UnaBiz to provide our customers with the best of both worlds in terms of multi-protocol IoT solutions. By leveraging our strengths, we can bring a better IoT experience to the market, addressing the growing demand for Massive IoT deployments.”
In addition, through this partnership, UnaBiz clients will gain access to LORIOT LoRaWAN Roaming Hub allowing them to extend network coverage and density. This will give them instant access to LORIOT global LoRaWAN public infrastructure as well as third parties’ networks.
Together, the two companies will be able to bring their vision for convergence and commitment to excellence to their customers by meeting their needs for massive IoT globally.
