Orange to grow LoRa footprint, test LoRaWAN network roaming

Monday 19 June 2017 | 09:04 CET | News

Orange France said that its network based on LoRa technology will achieve nationwide coverage by the end of the year. The announcement was part of the presentation made at the Orange booth in the Viva Technology event taking place Paris from 15 to 17 June. The company said that its LoRa footprint currently covers nearly 4,000 French towns and industrial sites, providing connectivity inside buildings and below ground.

In a related announcement, Orange said that it will test roaming between its network and that of another European operator within the LoRa Alliance by December, as part of the standardisation efforts to enable roaming between LoRaWAN networks.

Orange Business Services (OBS) has deployed LoRaWAN connectivity for more than 100 customers across a variety of sectors, in applications such as smart buildings, connected parking areas, patient home monitoring, the supply chain and geolocation.

As part of its offering, OBS has developed the LoRa Explorer Kit – a development kit to prototype LoRaWAN connected objects and test their capabilities on the Orange LoRa network in France. The scope of the offering is gradually expanding with the IoT Device catalogue set to include 75 objects by the end of June.
