Belgian operator Proximus announced plans to launch its own IoT network at a press conference 16 October. Proximus started in July the roll-out of the platform to help businesses connect devices. Sigfox also announced earlier this year plans to bring its IoT network to Belgium, in cooperation with energy provider Engie. Proximus is expected to use the LoRa standard, after earlier this year joining the LoRa Alliance and testing the technology in the port of Antwerp.
