Spark launches long-range IoT network across New Zealand

Monday 26 March 2018 | 10:03 CET | News
Spark has announced that its long-range, low-power network is now available for commercial use in 60 percent of the places New Zealanders live and work. Businesses and local councils can use the LoRaWAN-based network to connect to things like vehicles, waterways, machinery and carparks. Sensors on these objects are able to send information over the network to the people managing the objects. Commands can also be sent back to sensors, telling them when to kick in or the kind of information to report on, Spark also said.
