Libelium IoT platform powers smart cities in US

Libelium has added LoRaWAN and Sigfox wireless connectivity for North America to Waspmote OEM and Waspmote Plug and Sense! sensor devices, the company said.

San Francisco is one of the first cities to deploy this technology, where Libelium is already developing a Smart Water project with Sigfox and San Francisco County.

In Colorado, Libelium technology is also enhancing new projects to monitor weather and environment conditions with LoRaWAN connectivity.

Libelium is joining forces with LoRaWAN and Sigfox global network in response to strong demand for low-energy, long-range and cost efficient IoT connectivity in North America. In terms of network coverage, Semtech is partnering with Comcast to deploy LoRaWAN networks in 30 cities while Sigfox is expanding its network to 100 US cities.
