Proximus tests LoRa network in Antwerp port

Monday 7 September 2015 | 09:15 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus has started testing a LoRa network, reports Datanews. Working with the German logistics company Vollers, Proximus is testing the wireless technology in a cacao warehouse in the Antwerp harbour. LoRa (Low Range) is the general name for a communications network supporting M2M applications over a low, licence-free spectrum band. Proximus said in June that it was working on developing a LoRa network. The technology is often used for M2M services with low data rates and a large number of clients.
