Libelium adds coverage for India

Libelium continues to power the Internet of Things (IoT), adding LoRaWAN wireless connectivity for India to Waspmote Plug & Sense! and Smart Parking sensor devices, the company said.

By 2025, one out of every nine smart devices is set to be connected with one form of low powered wide area network technologies (LPWAN). Libelium has recently announced new LPWAN coverage for Australia, Asia Pacific and Latam with LoRaWAN and Sigfox technologies.

Libelium has quadrupled its turnover in India in the last five years demonstrating growing demand in this country. Libelium operates in this area through five distributors -AqTronics, Arrow, Intrinsic, Okkos and Pentagon- functioning as system integrators developing new corporate and smart city projects in a market where investments in IoT technology are increasing. Universities and research centres are also very important in this market due to the development and prototyping of the electronics industry.

In India there is a lot of research work, developments and trials performed using LPWAN technology. Moreover, Tata Communications announced recently that its LoRa network will cover most of India by the end of 2019 with deployment in 38 cities including Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
