Inmarsat joins IoT standards group

Inmarsat has joined the LoRa Alliance, a group dedicated to developing a global standard for the Internet of Things (IoT), and says it will provide the LoRa ecosystem with satellite connectivity to enable the deployment of solutions.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The LoRa Alliance is a non-profit organisation founded in 2015 by stakeholders across the IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) industries, with the goal of standardising the Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) being deployed worldwide to enable IoT, M2M, smart city and industrial applications.

The members of the Alliance aim to guarantee interoperability between operators by making LoRaWAN the open global standard for IoT applications.

“Joining the LoRa Alliance is a natural fit for Inmarsat,” said Greg Ewert, president, enterprise, Inmarsat.

“Our portfolio of M2M services, powered by our global network, have long been used to extend the reach of our customers’ M2M networks in a number of vertical markets, powering the Internet of Everywhere for solutions worldwide.”

“We hope that our expertise will be a valuable addition to the LoRa Alliance, and we are pleased to champion a global standard for IoT connectivity.”{/mprestriction}
