The LoRa Alliance is one of the fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) alliances with more than 400 members
Wipro has joined the LoRa Alliance to help accelerate its Internet of Things (IoT) solution deployments, using low power wide area networks (LPWAN) technology.
The global information technology, consulting and business process services company operates in a range of industry sectors including energy, utilities, natural resources, smart cities, ports, and logistics.
The LoRa Alliance defines and drives the long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) technology. LoRaWAN is an LPWAN specification intended for wireless battery operated devices in a regional, national or global network.
It provides seamless interoperability among smart devices without the need for complex local network installations, and empowers users, developers, and businesses, enabling the seamless roll-out of IoT solutions.
“Wipro’s proven system integration capabilities can enable adoption of LoRaWAN technology for IoT. Wipro has already demonstrated its leadership in the adoption of LoRaWAN technology by enabling smart ports and mines in India,” said Geoff Mulligan, chairman, LoRa Alliance.
“Joining the LoRa Alliance will help Wipro to generate value for IoT market participants by being part of our large ecosystem, enable [it] to get closer to customers and introduce new connectivity-enabled services.”
The LoRa Alliance is an open, non-profit association, with a mission to standardise the deployment of LPWAN technology across the world to enable IoT, machine-to-machine (M2M), smart city, and industrial applications.
It was formed in 2015 by technology industry leaders, including Cisco, Semtech, IBM, and telecommunications majors.
